I am an American married to a Desi from Bombay. I have been on Recipezaar since 2004. When I first signed up I was just learning how to cook Indian food. I have to say, it's a good thing I wasn't working during that time because then I had a lot of hours to devote to learning. It was complicated at first, but always worth it. There is nothing in this world like a great blend of Indian spices. I get a lot of my Indian recipes from my best friend, Rupali. Also I found a new youtube channel called Vah re Vah chef. He is absolutely amazing! If it's Vah re Vah, you know it's going to be very tasty. My main concern is that I am using authentic Indian recipes. Most of my recipes will always be vegetarian, but I might throw in some Chicken every now and then, since I mainly use this website to keep track of meals I make for my family. I eat fish sometimes, but my husband doesn't like it, so I only eat it when we go out.
