I feel the cooking sense since the time when my grand maa was cooking the food for entire family on Angithi (An angithi is a traditional brazier used for space-heating and cooking) and used to feed me with her hands while cooking.
The same happened with my mother. She is my first teacher. I love watching her cooking. I would always see her standing in the kitchen and talk to her.
Sometimes she used to ask me to give some spices from the top or else soak the rice in water. This was the basic techniques which I learnt from her. That’s how I started cooking by helping her.
Hahhahaha Still I can remember the first burnt mark got in my hand at the age of five, while I fell on hot vessel while I was talking with my mom in kitchen. Hmmmmm That marks is still in my hand.
Yes I love home cooking; I used to watch while my wife Rakhi cooks food at home. Still I can feel the smell of soil, the affection, trust and everything which belongs from the authencity of my home town.
