When I tell someone I am an Iyengar, they invariably ask me one question "Can you give me the recipe of pulioyogare?". No doubt our trademark is pulioyogare but its just not only pulioyogare. With this blog, I wish to get out all those recipes from our kitchen to all those people who are fond of our food. I remember all my friends in college would be going gaga over rasam, akki roti, pulioyogare, kolambu and many more like these prepared by my mom. Well, as for me I would be patting my back as if i prepared them.
I started this blog to express my gratitude to the person who taught me ABCs of cooking. And that special person is my grandmother whom I called Ajji/Paati. This is my sincere attempt to help people to learn not only our style of cooking but all kinds. Although I have given the name "Iyengar's Kitchen" to my blog, I will try my best to include other kinds of food too. Iyengar recipes would come definitely from my home which i have learnt from many people like firstly my ajji, my mom , dad, sisters, mother-in-law, aunt and many more in the family. Learning from them has made a better cook today. Most of all without the strong support of my husband I dont think i could have made anything because he has been my best critic. Most of other recipes that i post in the future are from my experiences living in different places, meeting different people, learning how to make their food, recipe books, internet, neighbours, relatives, friends, the list is endless:-).
This blog is also for those people who have absolutely have no interest in cooking or ever tried to enter the kitchen. I will try to keep it simple so that every person is able to understand my recipes and hopefully will generate interest in them to try these.I started this blog a few days back so i will take a little more time to update many things on the web page, like pictures, etc. All your encouragement and support will help me to make this a better page.
