I love to cook simple food which were passed on to me by my mother and my mother-in-law. Being traditional South Indian Brahmins, our recipes are healthy and home cooked. Some recipes I learnt from friends and in the places I lived. Now, we do include North Indian food but, any day any time it is the Rice and Rasam that satiates us.
