I simplify the spices. I'm the same way as everybody else: if I look at a recipe and there's ten spices in it, I'm going to have to think long and hard about when I'm going to be able to make that... so I try to simplify the spices to three or four.
So many of the recipes that I come up with have a story. I'm a blogger. It flowed very naturally out of me, but I also knew this was a way to set my recipes apart. A, they are always using interesting ingredients but B, there is always a story behind it.
The food in south India is the food that I really love because it reminds me of home. Aarti Sequ
I'm encouraged because you pick up any food magazine and there's two or three recipes involving Indian spices.
I've always wanted to be someone with credibility, and I want my food to speak for myself.
