I Wish You BothAfter marriage, it's natural for a husband to expect his wife to take charge of his kitchen and give him home made food. Similarly the Girl turned Lady feels that she should win the heart of her partner through her culinary skills. Often the question comes - Where to start?
A Happy Married Life!!!
It's still fresh in my memory when we both landed in Mumbai, soon after our Marriage. Luckily for me my Mom gifted Malati Chadur's Cook-book (in Telugu). He brought Thotakoora (Amaranth) and asked me to prepare its Dal. Confidently I turned the pages in this cook-book. It has Bachalikoora (Malbar Spinach) Pappu but not Thotakoora Pappu. I collected my wits and started to replace Thotakoora with Bachalikoora and went ahead with the preparation. Surprisingly I found the outcome to be quite OK and also got his appreciation. Later I tried a few simple recipes from this book, the experience of which put me on a strong note. Within no time I could handle my kitchen with ease.
Your mother would also have had a similar experience to share!!!

Believe me that many recipes have fancy names but are just a small variation from a basic recipe. A few additions, deletions and a simple change in proportions of the ingredients brings in huge difference in taste. Just have confidence and very soon you would become "Queen" of your Kitchen.
You may try the following 20 recipes and thereafter give me your feedback as to how confident you became. I'm sure would become an expert. Click here to see what other friends have shared!!!
I have taken care not to include recipes which a Bachelor would have already attempted and gained proficiency. After all my objective is to assist you in winning his heart with new recipes, which he hasn't tried. Isn't it?
If possible ask your partner to read the article on Essentials of Good Cooking and Eating
