Unlike professional food websites run by large corporations, food blogs are a solo act, run on one person’s passion for food.
Always focused on bringing readers home-cooked realistic meals; bloggers don’t have an assistant on hand to shop-n-chop, or professional photographers styling and propping the food.
I’ve been fortunate to connect with many amazing food, travel and photography blogs in the past two years; among which are some delightful sites featuring food from the Indian sub-continent (wish I could list them all.)
Much like my effort to bring you mouthwatering ‘Indian-inspired Food for the Global Palate’ through Peri’s Spice Ladle, these Indian food blogs below fill a niche, by offering a variety of regional cuisines and family recipes cooked with love.
Drop by their sites too; this is as authentic as food can get…
Looking for an old favorite Parsi recipe? I’d start at this site. Rita does an amazing job promoting my native cuisine with traditional meals, like her authentic recipe for celebratory Parsi Sev (vermicelli). She has great Parsi food cookbooks available online and runs a Facebook group ‘Parsi Cuisine’ with a treasure trove of recipes on it.
Elson tells food stories in the most interesting way, with posts full of culinary knowledge and a focus on the stunning flavors of his native south Indian Mangalorean cuisine. The Coastal Style Fish Biryani is unbeatable and tells a tale of the Indian subcontinent’s humble Biryani.
Sure delivers on its promise and showcases authentic home-cooked vegetarian food with a west Indian touch; the Potato Aubergine Curry will soon have you drooling. Mina teaches Indian cooking and also moderates a vegetarian recipes group on Facebook ‘Vegetarians R Us.’
Charu manages to highlight the essence of spices and spicy food with her recipes from the north and south of India. I think her recent flax-seed ‘Gunpowder’ spice blend (a clever word for a hot spice blend in southern India) is a stroke of genius and sure to wake up any meal.
Niloufer offers a beautiful mélange of Parsi, Indian and global recipes on her website, my absolute favorite being her Parsi-style Chicken with Potatoes, which brings back fond memories of my mom’s version. She offers great e-cookbooks which focus on simple recipes.
Harini’s beautiful food and comforting recipes with a south Indian and global flair are inspiring; her simple and flavorful Lemon Rassam is a favorite soup from my years in southern India.
Reminding me of my early cooking days, twenty-something Rahul’s culinary passion has him experimenting with India’s flavors, to create amazing dishes like his Home-style Salmon Curry.
Giving recipes her personal touch, Jeny blogs about homely and wholesome family food, among many personal favorites are her sweet and crunchy Coconut Burfi or Ladoos (dumplings.)
Fellow Parsi Aban does a great job presenting her family’s delicious recipes, one of my personal favorites being her Prawn Kababs made the Parsi way.
Simmi shows how food doesn’t have to be complicated to be flavorful. Her Beef Cutlets are so simply delightful, you’ll soon be running to gather the ingredients.
Filled with joyful Indian and global vegetarian treats, Madhavi has many simple and unique creations like her Red Radish Paratha flat-bread.
