IT'S ME!!!!!!!!!


Welcome , to my space . I was introduced to this blogworld by my best friend Mrs . Ramya Bala of Ramyaacooks . She was my inspiration to create this blog . Thank you dear for your support . I am graduated in B.E and Post graduated in MBA . At present , i am a house wife taking care of a princess , Deshna and a prince , Sarvesh.

I am a native of the Temple City , Madurai , TamilNadu . Born and brought up in a well educated joint family of nearly 20 members . My father have 3 brothers and 1 sister . You can imagine how much we(my cousins and myself) were pampered . My granny will be the chief cook and tutor for all her four daughter in-laws. She use to grind all the masalas instantly using 'AMMI' . She trained them in the same way. Even today , i can still remember those days when my mom and aunt uses 'AATU KULAVI' for idli-dosa batter.One will be grinding ,the other help her.Sometimes both will hold it and grind. During my childhood days , i enjoyed many varietes of special recipes . My mom and my aunts each one will give special recipes in their own style .

To be very frank , I started cooking only a week before my marriage .After marriage for 2 -5 months , i will think twice whether i can make this recipe perfect . So , i started cooking with simple and basic traditional recipes like sambar ,dal , rasam and quick veggie fries . My hubby's positive comments and support made me to try different recipes. Ofcourse , I am a kind of person who never wishes to make a usual menu everyweek or get trapped within that tradition . So , i changed or made a routine of using all the vegetables in my menu . I will definetly take care that a particular veggie is not repeated in 15 days . I store vegetables only for a week . Once a week , my menu will include any type of lentils like green gram , channa , cowpeas etc.

My space will give you all simple recipes which i learnt from my mom , granny , aunts , cousins , TV Shows , Magazines and sometimes my own experiments . I thank you for spending your time in my space . Enjoy and have fun . Feel free to give your suggestions to my id : shamanagscrafts@gmail.com.

Cheers,
Shama Nags
