Today’s episode is all about Indian cooking!
I chat with Meena from Hooked on Heat who shares her tips and tricks for getting started with Indian cooking at home.
Meena is a freelance food writer, recipe developer and cooking instructor based in, Ontario, Canada. She is also the author of two cookbooks, Knack Indian Cooking and 500 Indian Dishes. Not only does she try to simplify traditional cooking methods without compromising on taste, but she also loves to experiment with different ingredients and infuse flavours from the East and West.
The recipes on her food blog, Hooked on Heat, are inspired by classic Indian dishes and dressed up to suit our modern tastes. She enjoys creating recipes to meet with the increasing demands of quick and simple everyday meals.
She started her series ‘Indian Cooking 101’ on her blog many years ago, to bust the myth that Indian cooking is just too hard. Through this series, she shares how to make basic Indian food, beginning with the essentials and slowly moving up to a point where you will be confident enough to throw in a pinch of this and a dash of that.
