So, I recently moved to Bangkok.
I am a pure South Indian Veggie. And, when I moved to Bangkok, I had like no choice but to cook on my own. I mean the South Indian food that I find here are terrible.
Nothing tastes the same like amma’s sambar! So, that’s why I had to learn to cook.
Initially, I did think, “oh dear, this is going to be a lot of work”. But later, I realised that I liked a lot of dishes when I cooked them.
I was that “thayir saadam” person when I was in India. And once I moved here, as I learned to cook more and more dishes, I realised I had gained such a superpower.
I could cook anything and everything I want! I don’t have to expect anyone to cook that for me. I don't have to pay so much money in a shop to buy simple dishes, which I can make in a matter of few minutes. I could tweak any dish, to taste just the way I want them. It was such an enlightening experience.
I used to watch a lot of youtube videos online. I tweaked the recipes which my mom passed over to me, with variations I learnt from youtube and my mother-in-law. And the result was just amazing.
To be honest, I am not a person who tries to eat the most healthiest food ever or anything. My husband and I prefer tasty food. Just to set the expectations clear.
So, over the next few weeks, I will be sharing the few recipes that I do know, for all folks who are learning to cook South Indian food out there.
If you know any extra steps/ ingredients that I can add to my recipe, that will make my recipes better, do add them as comments. I would really love to try them!
