The Journey Continues……..

As you know, we took a short break from our vacation and returned back home to San Diego to spend time with our family. This time spent with family was much needed and I am happy we were able to come back. We are now ready to finish our vacation with a trip to India! I am very excited about visiting India. It is always fun spending time with family members. I am pampered and spoiled when I spend time with my siblings. What can be better than that? I am especially excited to meet my brother and sister’s new grandkids!

Our first stop and base will be Gurgaon. We will then venture out to Delhi, Jaipur, Agra, Banaras, and Mumbai. So far these are the cities we have decided to visit. We may visit more, but we plan to play it by ear.

So far what I cook is all trial and error and I make the recipes to my family taste. Every recipe has been a learning curve for me.

During this visit to India, I want to learn and experience the recipes of the local chefs in the cities I visit. I am hoping to learn new techniques that will greatly enhance my recipes. I think these little details can make a huge difference in the dishes and can really enhance the flavors. Of course, I will share these tips with you.

I will keep in touch.

Until next time…

  1. So glad you’re having a wonderful time!
    What you describe–discovering that you are still cooking the food you grew up with, while Indian food is changing–is a common experience among immigrants. I know that I find myself producing kitchen favorites from Britain that are regarded by many in the UK as very old-fashioned! It’s part of keeping in touch, so don’t stop! Anyway, we all love your food. 🙂

  2. Manjula ji,

    I am a huge fan of you and your cooking. I just happened to read your blog about the cities you plan to visit in India and found Banaras is one of them. Pls. do try to taste a dish called “Malaiyo” its a winter delicacy and made of flavoured milk froth and suppose to be consumed before the temperature gets hot.
    Its a traditional Banarasi sweets and you can not find it any where else as far as I know.

    Happy and safe vacation!


      1. Its great to get a reply from you and I would like to know about “Daulat Ki Chaat” too.
        I am not a Jain but we also make our food without onion and garlic. It has been a tradition in the family and I am the last one to follow it since I have not known any one in my generation who cooks without onion and garlic so when I came across your site, it was pure joy.
        Anyhow, I am from Banaras and now based in NJ. I was very disappointed to see that you visited NJ not long ago, I would have certainly come and met you if I knew about your blog. Its one of my wish to meet you in person.


  3. Happy & safe travels Ms. Manjula. I look forward to hearing from you about your travels and any interesting cooking techniques.
