Mango - The National Fruit of India

Mango from India
Delicious Mango, Sprinkled with Salt and Chilli Powder

Namaste. Welcome to my website ~ Mahanandi. A showcase of my latest interest, that is recording the age-old recipes my family prepares at home in India.

Indian cuisine is one of the mother cuisines of the world and Indian cuisine is sustenance cooking at its best. In our day-to-day cooking, the local, humble ingredients are elevated through healthy, sophisticated cooking techniques to scrumptious dishes. The precious culinary traditions have been preserved and passed from generation to generation through word of mouth and daily hands-on-ingredients experience, without the need of fancy cooking schools, culinary degrees, cookbooks and recipe cards for so long. But the times are changing…

I am attempting this from my home in Ohio, US. I have come across a number of recipe sites, but I could not find any with pictures of ingredients or everyday meals. My hope is that Mahanandi with food photos will entertain and delight those who already knew the ingredients and recipes, also offers some level of interest and assistance to novice who loves and wants to try Indian cuisine.
