Starting a Food Blog

Although I have been blogging on plants and nature for the past few years, my interest has turned increasingly towards food. I do a fair amount of cooking and of course a LOT of recipe browsing and viewing. My blog will be mostly about the kind of food that I generally cook. It’s a blend of flavours right from Dimasa cooking (the community I belong to), Indian food, dishes of our region with its varied seasonal vegetables, as well as a bit of baking.

The photos above show 1. Judima-home-brewed rice wine of the Dimasas. I’ll be including the recipe in a future post. 2. Khari is a dish that’s made of vegetables with the addition of dried fish and alkali. 3. This edible fern known as Daomalai in Dimasa is popular in our region. The last two pictures are of what I love to bake occasionally.
I’m looking forward to this new journey, the learning experience, and the friendship(s) as I explore the fascinating world of food. Thank you for stopping by today.

    I'm looking forward to reading your blog, Kanak. I don't know anything about Dimasa cuisine, so I'm hoping to learn a lot from you.

    I hope you will put a "Follow my blog via Google Friends Connect" widget on your page, because I would like to be a Follower!

    Thank you so much, Mark, for dropping by and leaving a comment. I'll do that. Many communities in the north-eastern part of India have their own unique ways of cooking. The method is basic and simple but nothing much has been documented especially about Dimasa food. I'm hoping to do that through this blog. And also learn about other cuisines along my journey….

    Congratulations on starting a new blog! I love to learn about other peoples' cooking and traditional dishes.
    Your pics are beautiful and I look forward to reading your blog posts. I loved idea of the nasturtiums in the salad. I will try to grow some this summer – they're so pretty.
    Hugs
