It is not at all difficult to cook good food at home and eat healthy.

  • To start with making your kitchen a fun place to spend time and cook what you like.
  • Don’t wait until you are hungry. Cook when you have some time before you are hungry.
  • Put some nice music, have fun.

Just to tell you, I never cooked most of my life, started really cooking after I got married. The good thing was my husband knew cooking, so it was helpful, and I learned it quickly. At present, I cook different cuisines but prepare Indian meals daily, if not all three meals per day at least once for sure. I just love as I have so many different choices and every meal is different.

What is the benefit of eating a home-cooked meal?

There are many benefits to it. Eating homemade food. Saves money, it’s clean, you tend to eat healthy, eat together, and you know what you are putting in it. You can cook simple meals which are healthy and what you like to eat. One should not get intimidated cooking; it’s just knowing your spices and putting in the right amount which is different with a different person. As I like fewer spices you might like spicy, so once you make 2-3 times you know the amount you like. Eating healthy is your choice.
Minimum Spices you need in your kitchen to cook healthy food: 

There are many spices but for simple few are needed. Cumin, Mustard Seeds, Coriander, Turmeric, Red chili powder, Garam masala, Mango powder.

Cooking with Love:

I believe when the food is prepared with love and affection tastes better. I feel like it’s an art of blending color, flavor, Aroma.

Is it healthy? 

If you are vegetarian, vegan, eat gluten-free, Indian cuisine gives many choices. It is great delicious, nutritious, mainly plant-based, tangy, sweet, healthy and aromatic. It is greatly influenced by the region. It can be simple or can be complicated. But It is very balanced with proper amounts of carb, fat, fiber and proteins. Each meal of the day is different and delicious. Some food deep-fried which not so healthy but once in while nice to enjoy it.
