I am MADRAASI (Deepa), a busy housewife running behind two lovely and notorious kids. I hail from TUTICORIN, the southernmost coastal area of Tamil Nadu. Before my marriage I never ever know where the kitchen was there at home. My cooking started just after marriage, since I had no option to kill my time after my hubby to office. Slowly I started exploring different varieties of food and gradually it turned out as a passion. I started maintaining my own cook book with the recipes I try, gradually it started piling up and found difficult to maintain and carry around those cookbooks. This is how I started my FOODBLOG with all the recipes I have tried out in my kitchen. You can check out the recipes @ www.madraasi.com. I scribble a lot in my idle time; you can see those as well in the blog. As my passion keeps grooming, I am sure that more and more recipes will be added to the list.
