Whats Cooking With Deepu

Hey You’ll!

Welcome to my hobby space where i’ll let you in on all that’s cooking in my free time.

I am an IT supermom living in the Golden City of San Francisco  with my husband and my little rascals Aashu and Agas. I moved to the US after my marriage and that’s when my love affair with cooking began. And now, working in my dream job in a reputed software firm by day, I come home to a very energetic and demanding son! Aashu being such a picky eater ( oh the terrible twos!), I am pushed to conjure new exciting dishes everyday! With time not being a luxury, I experiment with simple recipes, traditional and new, and the result is that Aashu finally has a happy tummy. Come weekends, I do love stirring up some delicacies for my husband and I. It could be childhood cravings, those traditional recipes by mom, mom-in-law and grand moms whose taste still lingers in our minds or some absolutely new Indian and world cuisine that I read on the internet and that gets me excited. 5.5 years on, I am pretty confident that I have created quite a few dishes that have turned out really well and are worth sharing with you all.

So with some help from my wonderful husband Vasu and my ever-dependable cousin Siri, I got my act together on this blog!

Besides cooking I also enjoy painting and am blessed to have inherited a small share of the talent from my mom and grand mom. I will be sharing those creations with you occasionally as well!

Stop by for some easy to make yet exciting vegetarian dishes for kids and adults alike,  and a dash of colours too! Feel free to let me know what you think! Constructive criticism is welcome but rude and unethical remarks are not. Such comments will be removed immediately.

If you want to share my images or content, I will be flattered!!! But taking permission before that and giving me credit after that will be appreciated. Actually that is a must.

Awright! Welcome aboard!
