I love to cook but without the lengthy prep time, complicated procedure and hate to go grocery shopping.
Indian food being the favoured meal at home and having just contradicted the saying ‘Cooking Indian food is HARD’, it actually seemed an impossible combination to balance.
My solution was to scavenge around the fridge and the cupboards and rustle up meals with leftovers or whatever spices, tins, packs and bottles of food I had.
Of course I had to do the basics but with a bit of imagination, experimenting with different spices, use of fancy gadgets and few healthy cheat tricks brought me results!!
And soon I realised that I did not need to depend on ‘quick and easy’ recipes and follow instructions or make numerous trips to the supermarket to buy specific ingredients to cook for my family everyday.
All I needed was to understand the basics of cooking and the combination of spices and flavours.
That is when I turned from being an Instructional cook to an Intuitive cook making my life in the kitchen so much easier and fun 🙂
