Cooking is devotion - this is my mantra! I am a pharmacist by profession and live in Margoa, Goa. Am also, a tireless vegetarian food and travel lover. I believe in making traditional dishes and preserving the recipes. Through my blog: www.tangytales.com, I endeavor to share healthy vegetarian recipes with you. I salute to all the devoted mothers and fathers (which may be rare….), grandmothers, and all the wonderful women, who have dedicated their immense time towards cooking, for years at a stretch….to ensure their kids and their loved ones, eat tasty and healthy food ! We all love to eat good tasty food, but it isn’t imperative that all of us love to cook too. This is because each one of us is not aware of the joy of cooking! I truly believe anybody can cook!
