Born and brought up in India, I learned to cook from basic using plant based items. Many dishes took a long time and there were electric gadgets like Blender.
I still enjoyed cooking. We had a large family and needed to cook variety of food to suit from babies to Seniors who needed special food.
After coming to the USA, I realized that I can cook much faster using some gadgets and some ready-made sauces and other items. I keep some items to help save time. The newest trend being Vegan and plant-based food in mind, I have published a Cook Book -a Vegetarian and plant-based food, with recipes from other regions on a Map of India.
The Green Chutney is a creation of my own recipes of Vegetarian-Vegan and Plant based food, with fusion food in mind. Check out post on this site to find out more about Spices, Plant Based Food, about Indian Groceries and more. There are many posts to help you understand more about Indian and other vegetarian food.
