About



Hi!

(Allow me to introduce myself)

My name is Hasin, a mindful nutritionist, 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, nutritious, home-cooked food made with natural ingredients. I share my knowledge based on recipes and a little story-telling.

Also, I am passionate about bursting misconceptions that revolve around Indian Cooking.

I believe in a simple philosophy about health, and that is focusing on 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 a family's health is an uncompromising priority, preparing meals with real ingredients will be more of a joy and less of a chore.

Born and raised in India, 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 groups 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 in 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 natural 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 mindfully with everyday ingredients.

They are relatively gluten-free, primarily vegan/ vegetarian and occasionally non-vegetarian; 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 made with natural 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, and then we skip dinner. We eat a king-size breakfast to skip the snacking.

What's in the name?

A healthy body starts in the kitchen.

Indian cooking is not all spicy and hot, and it is a misunderstood cuisine, and every recipe does not contain 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 finally came home and found my abode in self-care, good food and family.

I now work from home, earning my modest disposable income as a Mindful Nutritionist 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 hope that this blog will rescue my fading memory cells from failing me in my later years to come and help my two little girls avoid making constant 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
