Myself, Shaan Geo basically a Software Engineer started my career in IT Industry. I have had a passion for food and cooking from an early age. This habit made me keep an eye out for the new variants of food and the different cuisines where ever I go. According to me cooking is an equal-opportunity talent and I find that anybody can cook. It is not limited by the age, profession, caste, colour or creed of a person. What is needed is the love for cooking. For me passion for cooking does not stop in the kitchen, when I travel, I continue to be inspired by eating in some of the best restaurants around the world.

Thanks for posting a non-kerala dish. going to try.

Great recipe with easily available ingredients. Well done Shaan Geo !

Actually, before putting veggis into masala, if we will just fry it well then the raw smell will go and it will test a bit good. specially gobi.

It’s very useful website for us… Thank you so much!!

Thank you so much for your wonderful recipes. Could you please add the photos of each steps? It helps to prepare the items easily.

    Rani, Thanks a lot for the nice words and also for the suggestion. Because of the technical reasons I am not able to add more photos. If I do so, the pages will take more time to load for the users with low bandwidth internet connection. Anyway I will try to include images of important steps. Once again thanks for the feedback.
