We Indians are used to adding a dash of lime to zing up our food.Whereas the westerners might rely on vinegars in their varied avatars, we have always relied on lemon for imparting the sourness and tang. There are some interesting regional substitutes like tamarind, widely used in the south, and Kokum, used in coastal West India and Goa. My seafood and Chicken Curries are always served with a lemon wedge! Rich in Vitamin C and a rich flavorful zest, this lime sure added a pleasant tang to my crispy panko crusted chicken. Going a step further,the coleslaw was zinged up with lemon zest and some light dressing, that made a perfect accompaniment for the hot crisp chicken!

Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.
