Hop Right In!

I believe that salt is to food, what food is to life. In right proportions, it can heighten the taste of what you eat..and in the wrong - destroy! Even the most delicious sweets come added with some salt...to taste!

As for me, I've never enjoyed cooking. And as contrary to my owning a food-blog as it may sound, I always think about daily, routine cooking as a chore. But my tryst with the pots and pans began when I got a kitchen all to myself...I began experimenting and exploring new worlds in my own home. Some outcomes were excellent and some plain disasters. Then sprouted the need to keep track of all those good ones...and hence this blog!

Here, I share those experiments that pleased more than one palate!

New Beginnings

Vehicles honk past on the main roads, waking us up. Street hawkers giving their best hollers, reaching out to a prospective buyer. The maid renders her stone-washed look to clothes. Milk coming to a boil on the stove-top. It's morning. It's India.

Just when you concluded that I've banished my blog, I am back here. And at the risk of sounding non-promising, let me tell you I may not be as regular. Life is certainly a lot more hectic here. But all said and done, this is home. And, we're here. Now!

It's taken me a good two months to settle in. I was itching to blog. I did miss you after all, you see! So, I thought let me share with you something as fresh as the mornings. 

Here's a picture of the hibiscus plant on our terrace - A place I visit every evening to refresh myself in the cool breeze of the evening, once the sizzling sun has blazed us down. Summer has been killer, to say the least. And, our terrace mini-garden is quite a retreat for sore eyes.

Here's a close-up of the pretty pink that captured my heart.

On this fresh note, I plan to restart Some Salt To Taste - with more vibrant, fun-filled stories and recipes, of course. Isn't that what we're here for? India - Here we are!
