    Welcome to Mammus Kitchen. Let me take a few moments and introduce you to the site. The first thing I wanted to tell you is Mammus Kitchen is a personal website, created and maintained by me and my family. All the recipes you find here are tested and written by me and pictured by my husband. We invite you to try the recipes, and if you would like, please leave your feedback in the comments.


    I started cooking when I came to USA to do my Masters. I used to call my mom whenever I wanted to cook any special dish. After a few years I started experimentation of my own recipes, asking friends about their special dishes. I came from a large family where we have many traditional dishes and a lot of cooking at home every day. My grandmother is a great cook and I came to learn a lot of recipes, tips from her. My husband is a food lover and he inspires me more whenever I try a new dish.

    I started cooking more and all my friends liked my dishes. They started asking me recipes and I used to email them those recipes. I don’t remember when this idea popped into my head, but I started posting the recipes on my blog. Seeing the response from friends and family, I decided to have my own website and finally launched MammusKitchen.

    Little background about Indian food:

    The traditional Indian meal consists of rice or bread served with two or three main courses typically a meat or vegetable dish, cooked dal with sides like chutney and yogurt/raita. Finally, a cup of hot spiced tea to aid in digestion.

    Indian cooking uses different spices which makes the food flavorful and in addition exhibits incredible health benefits. Certain spices are meant to keep the body hot or cold to suit the different seasons. Most common used spices include turmeric, ginger, cloves, cumin, cinnamon, cardamom, fenugreek, bay leaf etc. For example Turmeric serves as an antibacterial and digestive agent and onions and garlic help preserve food in the tropical climate.
