Hello EasyCookin, so tell us...

Started the blog in August 2012.
The inspiration was "food" and passion to try & share yummy recipes (from all around the world) with friends, family and everyone around.
Are you involved in the blogging community - how do you attract new readers?
Yes, to some extent definitely involved in the blogging community.
To attract new readers, I try to keep my blog updated on a frequent bases, post tried and tested recipes.

What is your earliest food memory?
As a child (around 3-4yrs), I remember my mom making different fun shapes n sizes of Indian bread to feed me.
It definitely caught my attention and off course baking my first cake with her at the age of 5.
In your wildest dreams, where will your blog take you as it develops?
I would like it to be a brand in its own and also concentrate 100% of my time, energy and efforts on it.
What are some of your go to meals and snacks?
Well....there are tons to pick from but the easiest snacks would be a fruit salad, spicy roasted chickpeas, bhelpuri (Indian street snack).
Meals would be rice pilaf, stir fry chicken n so on...
If you could be a contestant or guest on any cooking show what show would you choose?
Current Show: Barefoot Contessa !!! Simply adore the way Ina cooks and display the food.
Past Shows: Julia's Kitchen !!! Just loved everything about her.
Who are your culinary influences?
Offcourse, My MoM and then Julia Child, Ina Garten and Curtis Stone.
Do you have a secret weapon in the kitchen?
My Kitchen Shear - I think I just cant cook without it as I cut and chop everything with it from vegetables to meat.
Do you manage to find most of the Indian ingredients you need to make authentic Indian dishes in American stores?
Sometimes I do, if I'm making a very generic Indian dish however if it's a special/rare dish then Indian stores are your goto option.
Anything else you would like to share?
Never Give Up !!!
I think I was very scared and also demotivated at times before starting my blog, but dont let anyone or anything hold you back. If it feels right in your heart, just do it !!!
