Featured in Aval Vikatan 09-Jan-2018 Edition – “Waste to Taste”

Featured in Aval Vikatan 09-Jan-2018 Edition – “Waste to Taste”

Got Featured in Aval Vikatan, leading Tamil Magazine, one among the Vikatan Group. I was very happy when I saw the book with 25 of my recipes, and the challenge was preparing a tasty and healthy dish using the leftover food. Recipes ranging from starters till desserts and the leftover food ranging from rice till poriyal (stir-fry). Been a hard core non-veg, I had to prepare these vegetarian recipes and thus created veg recipes using all these.

Madraasi Featured in Aval Vikatan – Leftover Recipes

The moment, I got a message from one of my friend with a picture of the book, I was like flying in the air, all it took one more day for me to get my copies in Bangalore, as it takes +1 day post it reaches the news stand/ outlets. The moment I saw the book, it was like I forgot where I am, since, I never ever imagined in my life that I would get a feature in this magazine and that too a leading magazine of Tamil Nadu. No words for my happiness, but still my heart was full of pains, as I miss my Grandfather, who strived hard, wanted and wished me to be happy at any time of life.

Moreover, creating these recipes was totally a challenging job, as I had to prepare it in just 2 to 3 days’ time, with unique ideas and also not every idea came out well, there were few flop recipes as well and finally collated recipes for the book.

Thanks a lot, to Food revolution, my motivation towards this recipes from leftover food was only through Food Revolution. Soon the English versions of all these recipes will be uploaded in the blog one by one.

For your own printed copies, rush to the nearest dealer or your nearest magazine store to get the same.

Happy Women’s Day – 2017

Happy Women’s Day – 2017

Wishing all the women a Happy Women’s Day

Happy Women’s Day

Proud of being women, and also wish to be women in all my births. Nothing is more stronger and more powerful as women on the earth.

Being born in a family where there is a definition for women (given by women themselves), whereas my grandfather, who gives entirely a different definition “As women are strong, fearless, powerful, stubborn when she decides it’s going to make wonders, outspoken and she who makes good decision and more courage than any other, who knows everything but looks as though they don’t know anything”.

Even I have the same views and strongly believe in the saying “Women can create or destroy”, so love to be women who creates things and at the same time never forget you can also destroy the unwanted things around you in your own life.

Recently when I came across one of a friend she who said, “Women and Gossips cannot be separated, pulling other’s leg even for silly things and the strongest part of the women is to ignore all these with a beautiful fake smile by hiding all her sorrows, stress and everything” – really felt pity for that women. I would say strong women never gossips, or do so and so as she is busy in picking the stones thrown over her to build an empire.

With a heavy heart, here, I say that women are thrown only by women, when you have ability to throw another, why to don’t you spend time in building your own empire and be happy in supporting and helping your own kind – LIVE and LET LIVE.
