About Me

Food blogging is like cooking for a large family. There are members who get drawn by its aroma, while there are others who hang around in anticipation; and yet there a select few who even enter your kitchen and check you out.

Whichever way you look at it, food creates love.

Hi !!

I'm on a binge again. Only this time it's not an eating binge. It's a dip-making ( read relish / dips / sauces) binge.

I'm gonna be dividing this into a series here, where I'll be sharing recipes for various types of dips. Each post will carry one type of recipe. L...
