Hey There! Welcome to my personal creative space - The Magic Saucepan
Who Am I ?
“Way to a man’s heart is through his stomach”. There is nothing in this world that could make a person happier than having a hearty meal. Food is an essential part of people’s lives and cooking is a powerful medium to communicate one’s feeling. The pivot of any parties, celebrations or even a small get together with friends, is always good food. Every time I go home for vacation, my parents stock up on my favourite sweets & snacks. Everyday, for the rest of my vacation would be: Honey, what would you like to have today?
When one has a congenial & receptive audience, the likelihood for a great performance is always high!
I was lucky to be married into a family that enjoys food as much as I do, rather more. My otherwise traditional in-laws, when it comes to food, are very open-minded. I have a Mother-in-law who is an amazing cook and Father-in-law who is very appreciative of food and a lifetime partner who is more than willing to be my experimental subject and critic. Mom, if you are reading this, don't be upset – remember, I am your offspring after all!

Thanks a lot Snigdha. 🙂 That is so sweet of you..
Nisha, I am new to your Blog and am already completely bowled over by it. Your style is so warm and inviting, you clearly have many talents! I am a distant but huge fan of Indian cuisine but (as yet) have not had the possibility to visit this amazing country. I was lucky enough to try some of your recipes very recently via a mutual friends' lunchtime party, they were so tasty I had to get the recipes. Love your photography and will definitely be doing some of my own experimenting.
