Born in a traditional family and exposed to the ghee laden dosas early in the morning followed by an amalgamation of various ingredients and explosion of flavors for lunch with BisiBeleBhath, I have been raised on a steady diet of mouth watering South Indian food. However I was never satisfied just with the traditional and familiar and ventured out into trying out the unfamiliar – be it rich Mughlai food in the bylanes of Delhi or spicy and tangy chats on the beaches of Mumbai. From the food truck revolution in the US where I sampled the wonderful tacos and artisan sandwiches to the Microbrewery and Gourmet cooking revolution in Bangalore – I have followed my tastebuds faithfully into the unfamiliar but exotic and exciting. I would consider it blasphemous to call myself just a foodie – I am a devotee and worshiper of food. On #WompIndia I will chronicle my experiences while exploring the unexplored and of course the well known and familiar food havens across the globe.
