About

Hi, my name is Pankti. I am a former techie, currently a homemaker, taking care of my daughter Zini & her papa A (well that’s my hubby :) ). & as a homemaker I am supposed to take care of my home as well (though i am no good at it , but I try ;) ). I blog about our life at techie2mom.

Before Zini, i wasn’t much into cooking. I mean i could manage daily and feed occasional guests.

But i wasn’t definitely on a higher level… What with really tight schedule and hectic work timings, i was never interested in going to kitchen leave alone trying new things. i used to hate cooking on weekdays. And on weekends i just felt like lazing around and going out…So you get the drift, right ;)

At the same time i am a big foodie and i love to eat. As a result i knew and visited many restaurants in the cities i lived in.

But After Zini started eating solids, i got really interested in cooking. I realized that if  i want to teach my daughter to eat healthy, i’ll have to do the same. I also generally insist that Zini get home-made food (upto to extent of being an OCD patient). All these led to my increased interest in cooking. i made everything that doctor & mom suggested for Zini. One of my friend gave me a cookery book with recipes for babies and toddlers (by Tarla Dalal). It had some cookies and cakes recipes and i got interested in baking. So i learnt basic baking also.

As a result of all this increased interest in cooking, i have been having some cooking (mis)adventures ;) But i also succeeded in making some of the things that my daughter is hooked to and turned out well, so i thought of recording them. I have been recording my cooking misadventures in the blog. So why not the successful adventures?!?!

So i have created a page where i am planning to record my recipes, all of them are vegetarian recipes (Some of the Cakes include Eggs though). And as I am Gujarati and married a Punjabi, i cook food from both the states. In Gujarat you find different cuisines in different regions like North Gujarat, South Gujarat, Saurashtra and Kutch!! My family has roots in South Gujarat hence you'll see the Surat influence on my cooking. And also i have stayed in Ahmedabad in my growing years, so definitely that influence is also present :)

Also food from different states of India and street foods are our favorite, hence you will find all of it here. I learnt them from different sources, my mom (she is the biggest contributor to the list), my maasi, my grandmom, my grandfather, my MIL, my friends, some cookery shows and books and of course the omnipresent internet and various food bloggers.

I will post the recipes that worked for me and are popular in our household. I also believe that the way every person is different his/her cooking style is bound be different. And that makes cooking more interesting. So bring in your personal touch to your cooking and happy cooking to all of you…
