About



Hi!

(Allow me to introduce myself)

My name is Hasin, mother of two, wife of one;
Jill of many, master of none; currently living in the UK.

Jokes aside, To me, Food is a SERIOUS BUSINESS.

About "Let's Curry"

I started this blog to promote the joy of eating simple, home-cooked food made with real ingredients and I am passionate about bursting misconceptions that revolve around Indian Cooking.

I believe in a simple philosophy about the health and that is focusing on the nutrition and not on avoiding the disease.

 Let's eat like our grandparents ate- a balanced mix of carbohydrates, proteins and fats in moderation that they made from scratch. So, Yes to millets, lentils, whole grains and ghee.

 "Eat to nourish your whole self."

If one believes that nourishing family's health is an uncompromising priority, then preparing meals with real ingredients will be more of a joy and less of a chore.

Born to a large South Indian family, there was never a shortage of social gatherings and, food has always been a more substantial part of my growing up heritage. The food that such gatherings called for, not only nourished my physical self but also nourished my inner soul.

After relocating to the UK in 2010, during my unsettling moments replicating such home-cooked food offered me comfort and got me into believing about the existence of soul-satisfying food.

Through Let's Curry, partly I'm aiming to recreate similar soul-satisfying moments for my children while also trying to help others to love to enjoy eating real food made with real ingredients.

While most of the featured recipes are from my mother's kitchen, some are generously shared by other wonderful women who are equally enjoying the joy to keep themselves and their families nourished.

The recipes are generally nutritious and are made with everyday ingredients.

They are fairly gluten-free, mostly vegan/ vegetarian and occasionally non-vegetarian; as my family has varying dietary needs and we respect that.

This blog hosts easy breakfast recipes, simple meals, do-able dinners and guilt-free desserts all made with real ingredients and aimed at well-balanced nutrition.

While it's good to be mindful, obsession can be counter-productive. We don't believe in counting calories or avoiding cravings.
But, we exercise insightful eating. For example, we splurge on pakoras then we skip dinner. We eat a king-size breakfast to skip the snacking.

What's in the name?

Indian cooking is not all spicy and hot and it is a clearly misunderstood cuisine and every recipe does not contain just curry powder.

After relocating to the UK, I have come across many curry lovers engaging in the famous "curry conversations" with me like - "Is it curry today?","Are you making curry?","I love curry!" and many more curry-hankerings and hence the name-"Let's Curry."

A little more about me

I have some interests and still foster a few talents that can bring some exciting moments of relief from the gusty winds of the everyday rush.

I have graduated from Bangalore University with a B.Sc and have achieved my Masters in I.T. I'm a Microsoft Certified Professional and have my share of qualifications from both India and the UK.

When I'm not cooking, I'm planning my next meal!

After trying my hand at a series of different careers, I have finally come home and found my abode in self-care, good food and family.

I now work from home earning my modest disposable income after sabotaging (no love lost) a lucrative IT career. I spend time with my children. I love reading, crocheting, walking, travelling, sometimes fixing things up around the house.

I love singing to my heart's content and, classic Bollywood hasn't yet found an adopted home.

I don't believe in a magazine home, but I do appreciate a clean house. At the end of a tiring day, I like to rest my body(housing this soul)into a cosy, inviting space called home and No!- I am not an obsessed being, but I do work my way out towards securing a tidy home somehow.

Besides sharing my recipes here in one place, I also hope that this blog will rescue my fading memory cells from failing me in my later years to come, and may help my two little girls from avoiding to make incessant calls, asking for their favourite recipes in their grown-up years.

Although cooking is a duty of care, sometimes it can become a task with a forgotten purpose. But I still think "Anybody can cook", as long as a desire to revive the passion exists!

I genuinely hope this blog adds one more morsel to your cooking experience, and it's more than just Curry. Let's celebrate the joy of sharing.

And yes, I'd love to hear from you.

With love and gratitude, always
Hasin
