Lets eat healty, cheap and tasty

I am starting this blog after waiting for very long. I hope to help anyone who wants to cook healthy, cheap and tasty. You can ask me any question and I will try to help you to my best ability.

My background is "molecular genetics and biochemistry". I had “nutrition” as a minor during my masters in biochemistry.  My heritage is Indian and my love for food is from "All Over the Globe" so don’t restrict to "Indian Cooking" (I don’t like to toot my horn but I am very good Indian cook and cook from scratch). I learnt my basic cooking from my late mother.  She cooked in "Chulha" and Angithi" (primitive cooking ovens) but I use any means of cooking. She was 100% vegetarian but I am not, in fact I am an omnivore but an ethical consumer of food who cares about the planet. So let’s begin: You send me a question and I will get you an honest answer.  (There you go Dave finally after 2 years !!).


  1. How about a pickle of ginger in lemon or vinegar?

  2. Did I respond ? If not then here it is:

    Peel ginger by scraping outer skin with knife.
    Cut it as fine long sticks.
    Add Venegar or lime or lemon juice.
    Add salt to taste.
    Refrigerate and enjoy for 10-15 days.

    If you like you can also add little bit of sugar and some hot peppers. Golden raisin also taste good and also used when some one is having indigestion. Other addition can be Chiraunjee (I dont know english name). These additions will work with only with lemon or lime juice.
