Minasama Namaskara (Greetings from India)...I am Shilpa from India, to be specific - Bangalore, South India. I have been living in Tokyo with my husband and 8 year old daughter for three years now. We are enjoying our stay, thanks to our Japanese friends who have welcomed us and treated us like one among them.
We don't think there is any other country in the world like Japan which has accepted other cultures so easily without letting go its own. They have treasured their culture and we respect them for their big heartedness.
Every part of India has its own cusine, these cuisines vary significantly from each other and use locally available spices, herbs, vegetables and fruits. My family is ovo-lacto vegetarian (diet includes eggs n dairy products).
I have been training in India for long and would like bring to Japan the South Indian cuisine which is full of spices and aroma. My recipes are a little different from normal Indian recipes. I hope you will like them. My husband keeps inviting so many Japanese friends to my house for lunch / dinner and I must say that they all like it.
I am very passionate about my cooking and taste and wish that you all love the way we uses the spices and have a good experience at my place. Looking forward to meeting you soon!!!!
