Describe your culinary style.
I make vegetarian and vegan food from different cuisines. My food is very contemporary and global and I try to make recipes that are easy to make yet flavorful and appealing to all our senses.
What is the main source of inspiration for your recipes?
The abundant yet unknown existence of vegetarian recipes in all the cuisines from different parts of the world is the driving forces behind my creations. I also get very inspired by the thought of showing people how vegetarian food can be flavorful and nutritious at the same time and is in no respect inferior than meat.
If you could have one food while stranded on a desert island, what would it be?
I would take whole wheat bread because bread is one of my favorite food and also because it will keep me full with all the carbohydrates. It’s an island so maybe I can go and find some vegetables and fruits to go with the bread and eat a balanced kind of diet.
For someone new to your blog, which recipe do you recommend they try first?
- Hummus Trio & Baba Ghanoush: Hummus it’s a very popular recipe, on my blog and otherwise. Its very easy to make and is very versatile, you can pair it with many things- use it as a spread, as a dip and you can make it in different flavors.
- Bruschetta: It’s a very simple recipe with few ingredients and is loaded with so many flavors and is my all time favorite. It was one of the first things I made which was appreciated and relished by many people.
- DalMakhni: Its an authentic Indian recipe and this recipe breaks the myth of Indian recipes being complicated and hard to make. It tastes great with Indian breads and rice.
What is your ultimate guilty food pleasure?
European dessert delicacies. A good cup of cappuccino and a nice dessert – I can have that at any time of the day.
I think Yummly is a very powerful tool that exists online. What I like the most about searching recipe on it is that it lets you refine your search by providing so many options that the results are very accurate. With its database growing at a brilliant speed, it has covered a lot of good sources for recipes. It is a great resource for people who like to cook from the internet (like me).
