When I was in India this time, somebody asked me, why is your blog called the “Novice” Housewife? Going on further to explain that from the pictures and the food I make, it didn’t look like I was a novice.
At that time I took it as a compliment and smiled (reminding myself that when someone pays you a compliment you should always accept it and never protest).
In my mind though, I was saying- of course I am a novice, there is so much I do not know.
This post is a reflection of just that.
How little I know. And how much I need to learn.
(I know this doesn’t sound like a strong case for me giving my “expert” advice on Indian food at GMT! Yikes! Anywho….)
The other day, I downloaded a food recipe app- a Nita Mehta iPhone app.
Nita Mehta is like the Ina Garten of Indian food, if I could say so, without offending fans of either of the mentioned parties. Her recipes are quick and mostly great. Like Ina’s.
So anyway, I downloaded the app- its a breakfast recipes app. And looked good. I decided to try her version of Rajasthani Chilla.
