This weekend seems exceptionally lazy. Maybe its the whether...gloomy , rainy and cozy! Its gets nice and cool here in Nasik , unlike the humidity in Mumbai! But watching the streets outside , you just tend to lose the motivation to step out , even it be for leisure. But lazing at home is fun at times though! Just sit back and watch the rains , grab a cup of tea and chill! Its only these rains which gives homemakers like me a chance and a reason to relax....

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.
