In India, when one moves into a new home, there is this tradition of performing a big pooja ceremony to bring in good forture at the new place. Even though the pooja may be the biggest part of the event, what is most looked forward too during this time is the food.

As with any Indian celebration, food is often the main focus. It is no surprise then that our world revolves around what we eat. The utmost care is taken while planning the lavish menu and needless to say, a great amount of time and effort is taken in its preparation.


Though I don’t have the ceremonial breaking of a coconut and what not planned, I do, however have something deliciously good to offer you all on the occasion of my moving to my very own domain. I hope this blog grows into something I will cherish and treasure forever. I know I already do. I value all the comments you send me with all my heart and hope that I continue to keep you interested and tuned to my wonderful, ever-growing list of culinary goodness.
