Turmeric N Spice

Cooking has become my passion in the last  two decades. I enjoy cooking and it is more than mixing ingredients in the right proportion as per the recipe - it is celebrating the pleasure that food brings to our lives.  It is two three years since I started the blog and I have enjoyed every moment of it. This is my space where I can share who I am and what I do best - bringing fresh food to the table -celebrating food. Hope you enjoy my space as much as I enjoy sharing it with you.
