"I am an experimental cook by chance!" Yeah! Cooking to me has always been a form of stress buster. What started as a stress busting exercise post work, has now evolved to a much full time activity. I try to improvise the traditional recipes with easy to available ingredients at home. Thus, you will come across a lot of fusion in my cooking style. I try to include seasonal organic produce as much as possible in my cooking.
