I love walking into my kitchen in the morning and finding all those colorful things that I keep on the counter , I have a very small kitchen  barely enough for 2 people to stand and cook , I like to be alone when I cook so that I can cook with concentration and not be distracted .

It’s a pleasure to see a clean and shining counter every morning and so I make it a point to really shine it the night before using dish washing soap, dish washing soap works really well on granite and leaves it shiny and clean.

Kitchen is one place in the whole house where I spend most of my productive time and so as I always say it’s the little things that make your day, I have many things that I love looking at on the counter and on the kitchen shelves , off course it does get a bit congested but I feel what’s the use of those things that I buy with great pleasure , if they lie inside the cupboards unused and not serving its purpose.

Thats my kitchen for you... small but enough to give me pleasure.


It’s been a very long time since we have communicated with each other. I used to take a lot of pictures and make lots of dishes to share with you and it so happened that my regular camera with which I was comfortable with ,would not work as expected and that put me a little back my regular posting of recipes.

But it’s been a long time and I really miss blogging a lot and so I have decided that I will be sharing my daily meals which I click with my mobile.
If you read my other blog where I have all my traditional Goan recipes you will find that I will be posting my daily homemade food thali's too but only those which have a non-veg component. 
So if you want to see my non-vegetarian meals you will have to visit my blog 
Here I will share my day to day lunches which are totally homemade and made from scratch , I prefer to bring vegetables from the vegetable seller and cut chop at home and make my meals no store bought pastes or frozen stuff for me. especially for my daily meals . Off course if we do have a big party one has to take the help of these ready things to ease the planning and cooking process.
I can also share recipes with you if request them in the comments section.

I try my best to click pictures of my day to day meals regularly so that it’s of help to those who are confused as to what to cook for the day. 
 My menu is always made taking into consideration the type of food I make i.e. I make a light vegetable if I make a spicy dal or fish curry ,
or if I make plain non- spicy dal I will always make a nice spicy vegetable and fry something to go with it. So I hope that those of you who are looking out for combinations while cooking their meals will be benefited.

This is a simplest vegetable meal on can prepare the work is cutting and chopping the spinach , but in the US one can get already chopped spinach which is a boon, here in India we have to buy, clean and chop it and so those in the US you can make this in an instant.


Spinach-lentil curry or palak whole masoor curry
Easy stir-fried potatoes.
Roti and I served plain dal which is not in the picture.
An easy and nutritious meal for your family if you are short of time and still want to put something good on the plate.
