From bunking study time to make pronthis with my aunt on most Mondays during school days… to watching my mom cook the best meals effortlessly everyday... to now therapeutic cooking on some weekends… welcome to my food journey @whiskmixstir.com !
A few quick recipes, some elaborate Indian cooking and a lot of simple recipes and meal ideas to make your cooking experience fun!
Growing up in Pune (still Poona to me), my food choices have (thankfully!) not been limited to food from a particular region of India… I love eating, and of course cooking, a variety of Indian food recipes.
Most of my recipes are from the Northern Indian region and I do not claim any authenticity of these being traditional recipes, as recipes and ingredients do change from generation to generation. This is simple North Indian / Punjabi food that is cooked in my house and that I have grown up eating.
Writing is my kind of 'me time'. And because I enjoy cooking so much, I thought it was only apt to document and share my passion… which is how the Indian food recipe blog WhiskMixStir came about.
Usually, cooking Indian food is overwhelming because of the sheer number of ingredients that are used in many traditional Indian food recipes. My style of cooking is mostly andaz se (as they say). Though, as I now document my recipes on this food blog, I do use measures, where possible, while always keeping the recipe simple yet authentic.
Note: while I do share recipe measurements, the quantity of ingredients would largely depend on your location / city.
On a macro level, the recipe remains unchanged worldwide i.e. the main ingredients. However, little things like the time, amount of water or salt and spices required for cooking a particular recipe may change based on the altitude or even the climate of your city.
As an example, the quantity of water and time used to simply boil potatoes varies from city to city depending on the altitude, humidity and other factors.
Hours and method of marination may also be slightly different, like whether or not you need to store marinated protein in a refrigerator.
Point being, I recommend that you use my recipes (or any other online recipes for that matter) as a benchmark and see how it goes from there, unless the person sharing the recipes is in your city.
Coming back to WhiskMixStir, I share a lot of simple everyday cooking recipes for those of us who are just starting out on our cooking journey... or for the ones looking for quick under 20 minutes recipes and Indian meal ideas possibly after a long day at work. Everyone at some point or the other is new to cooking or to a recipe, as am I, so I write and share my recipes through WhiskMixStir to document them and also help fellow learners along the way.
I hope you enjoy reading and more importantly trying out my home-style simple Indian recipes and meal ideas… do write in to me with your feedback!
