Standard

I’m a foodie who lives to eat. I started cooking after my Graduation because my dad used always say “A man should be able to cook his own food”. Initially, I was not that happy about cooking but now I consider myself as a pretty decent cook.

My Father is a great cook, Better than my Mom.. “Hope my mom is not reading this”. So as a Kid I was blessed with good delicious food on my table every single time. My passion for food has helped me become a better cook. I love experimenting with food while eating as well as cooking and surprise everyone.

In this particular blog, we will see how to make Bathue ka Raita. Most of you may not be familiar with “Bathua”. Bathua is a leafy vegetable also known as lamb’s-quarter and Paruppu Keerai.
