The way to a man's heart...


Dear All: "The way to a man's heart is through his stomach" - when I heard this saying for the first time I was greatly worried as I knew nothing about cooking. Occassionally I have cooked some rice, boiled some water, made a scrambled egg... that's about it! 

When our marriage was fixed Papa was much worried. He called me aside and said, "Queenie, may be you and son-in-law can make some sandwich or salad or toast or an omlet and you can survive" I thought so too - until I learnt my husband had to have a dal or curry every day.

As he had lived in the US nearly two years before our marriage he knew a thing or two about cooking - definitely a lot more than what I knew. So he taught me to cook... After a few trials and errors I learnt the art and have slowly found the way to his heart!

I am not an expert now, but the few items I know, I do it the best. Haven't heard any complaints so far though my friends still tease me about few cooking adventures gone wrong over the decade... I am not much worried as my husband assures me I am the best cook he has ever known! That makes all the difference to me and I am all set to keep on cooking!

Here's an attempt to put together what I have learnt so far, thought it might be useful to someone who is in the same boat as I was 11 years ago. Here's introducing NRIMenu! Please share the link with your friends & family if you think they'll find it useful: http://www.nrimenu.blogspot.com/

Yours truly,

Not all men are fond of eating..I can say about myself for sure.
