Born an omnivorous in Republic of Moldova, (Eastern Europe), I became a vegetarian when I married my husband who hails from a South Indian Brahmin family (well…I succeeded converting him to eating eggs….). Cooking vegetarian is so fun and challenging (at times). The variety of vegetarian ingredients is amazing and so is the range of dishes one can make. I twist recipes to suit my lifestyle and buds. I cut corners without compromising on taste and quality. I sometimes take an Italian recipe and add a bit of masala, chant a mantra and voila: a new fusion dish that can be quite intriguing even for the most puritan out there.
