An Email dated September 15th 2014 from a Reader on Peri’s Spice Ladle (sums up what this site is all about)
I am not a huge fan of posting on blog posts, but I have to say your recipes are amazing. They taste as good as they look in your pictures. I have tried other recipes from other food blogs, but none comes close to your level. As a beginner chef, I really appreciate it how well you teach and explain it. I am now hooked on your site. Thanks again for inspiring this novice to cook more! 🙂
Congratulations on completing the three years. I have been following you throughout the three years and loved your blog. You have achieved a lot in the three years and hope to see you going from strength to strength.
Tehnaz Hathi on Lemon and Mint Quinoa Salad
Lemon and Mint Spicy Quinoa Salad was a total hit at our house when children came over for dinner!!! Will be making it more often and the flavors are simply amazing!
Fantastic! Turned out really well & had it after a very very long time. Glad your recipes are easy to follow for the accidental chef and you use ingredients commonly available in the west. Thank you!
Everything was perfect!! And using the spinach mint chapattis to dip up the sauce with was superb! Even my daughter who doesn’t eat meat at all couldn’t resist the sauce from the chicken curry. And if you promise to keep it a secret, I couldn’t resist the curry itself! Simply delicious. thanks again for all your wonderful recipes…
Peri, I made this today for brunch, and it was delicious!! Super tangy and flavorful, with such fluffy eggs and only a small sprinkling of cheese on top– the pie crust made it extra decadent and the tomato flavor really shined. Yum! Thank you for a recipe that I will definitely be making again!
I never follow a recipe exactly–but I was inspired by yours and almost followed it exactly. I changed the yellow pepper to red, the Serrano to jalapeno, and I cheated and added a teaspoon of mayonnaise because my hubby is a mayonnaise addict (I made this for him for a “day before father’s day” brunch treat). He LOVED it (and he, a persnickety chef, is not easy to please!) Thanks for the inspiration. Grating the eggs made it exquisite. I may never eat egg salad with chopped eggs again.
Oh, Peri! This is delicious! All the spices! I wish I had a beer!!! I love the Brussels sprouts in this. And I love the Garam Masala! My first bowl has the Garam Masala and a squeeze of lemon juice. My second bowl will have sour cream and I think the GM again too. If I can eat a third bowl (lol) I’ll put red onions and some lime juice. (I have a half of a frozen lime in the freezer that I was saving for just such an occasion!) Yumeeeeeeee!!! What a nice change from my usual chili recipe. OK, on to my second bowl!
Puff Pastry is such a blessing. Peri you combined it with cumin and almonds – neat idea! I sometimes just bake it and sprinkle caraway seeds on top. I love your blog.

Ahh cilantro pesto sounds so fresh and tasty! hehe
Your blog is fantastic, the recipes are all so healthy and wholesome!
Keep up the great work!
This looks great.. the spices, the addition of rice!! Wonderful!! Wish we’d just had Thankgiving now!
Hi Peri, I tried the Daal this week, and it WAS amazing. Tasted just like the daal from great Indian restaurants. Thanks for the tip on doubling the recipe and freezing half. I would have been hesitant to freeze this, not knowing anything about Indian cooking. Can’t wait to try more of your recipes.

I hear you! Sister from another country! Lol, love, love love your blog!
What a yummy yoghurt soup Peri; I look forward to spicing up the way you do here – and again loving the similarities in our cuisines, the love of yoghurt! Adding peas to top is great, a complete meal with some crusty bread, yum yum 🙂
Thanks Peri for bringing so much attention to our humble ‘adu-lasan no masalo’
(ginger-garlic paste). No Parsi fridge is without this baby on the top shelf
Thank you for this, Peri – as always, I’m congratulating myself on happening onto your deliciously-smelling blog. I read along in the comments too and I appreciate your cardamom wisdom. All the best to you in 2013.
You have very good space here. I love the fusion of Indian cuisine with others. Really appreciate the way you are promoting Indian cuisine. Thanks for sharing. Will try out some dish from your blog. they all look great!
Healthy Glow Nutrition says:
What a great site! I LOVE Indian food. The flavours are incredible. I will definitely try your recipes.
Congratulations on your anniversary! What a beautiful recipe and it sounds positively healthy the way you make it. Was surprised to see one of my favourites, Worcestershire Sauce, in there…wonderful! Looking forward to making this one.
Dhun on ‘Indian Street-food Inspired Couscous Chaat‘:
This looks and sounds really mouth-watering with some heat!! Good idea for a picnic/potluck. Not only are your recipes healthy and delicious–I enjoy reading your blogs each week, as each week I learn something interesting about different ingredients, their origins and properties:):) Thanks Peri for helping us stay fit:):)
Peri – Thanks for checking out my blog. I’m so glad you did because I’ve been looking for a good blog on Indian food to add to my follow list. I love your background – that you are from Mumbai, a writer and have experience in the hospitality industry. I’m expecting great things from you!
Great post… and most interesting too, thanks for your little list outlining the characteristics of Parsi food.
Thanks Peri for the information. It definitely helps me with the next steps. And I will be referring back to your recipe. I think I will start out small so we can try different blends to see what we really like. It is good to know about the dominant versus complimentary spices. This is all new to me – but exciting at the same time.
Your blog is SUPERB! I can’t wait to explore it further.
Thanks for your nod to Peri’s Spice Ladle
