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.

 About Let's Curry

I started this blog to promote the joy of eating simple, healthy,   home-cooked food made with real ingredients.

A balanced mix of carbohydrates, proteins and fats in a controlled portion is what we need.


Over the years, I have come to believe in a simple philosophy about food and health, and that is to focus on nutrition and not on avoiding the disease.

 "Eat to nourish your whole self, not just hunger".

If one believes that nourishing family's health is an uncompromising priority, then preparing meals will be more of commitment-of-care 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 it nourished my inner soul.

During my unsettling moments in the UK, 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 indeed from my mother's kitchen, some are generously shared by other wonderful women ranging from my dear mother-in-law to my dear sisters, friends and aunts, who are equally working hard to keep themselves and their families nourished.

The recipes are generally gluten-free, mostly vegan/ vegetarian and occasionally non-vegetarian.
This blog hosts easy breakfast recipes, simple meals, doable dinners and guilt-free desserts all focused on health but not obsessively obsessed with nutrition.

While it's good to be mindful, it can be counter-productive when obsessed with being mindful just like every other thing in life. Balance is the key to strike.

What's in the name?

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!","My curry doesn't taste the same." and many more curry-hankerings and hence the name-"Let's Curry".

A little more about me
 
I have some interests and s
till 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.

When I'm not cooking, I'm juggling between work and home. I work at a local school in the UK earning a modest disposable income, after sabotaging (no love lost) a lucrative IT career on purpose to honour marriage and motherhood. I spend my available time in blogging, reading, crocheting, walking outdoors, travelling, teaching and 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 purpose and 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.

Haseena
