My name is Poonam Bachhav and I have recently moved to Penang ( Malaysia). Hailing from a typical Maharashtrian family from India, no doubt the flavors of Maharashtra reflect very distinctly in my cooking.
For me , my mother Mrs Mangala Pagar is a true inspiration in cooking. I have grown up seeing her cook variety of dishes, mostly authentic and I feel passion for cooking is in my genes. The recipes posted here are collective from my mother, my cook book, other blogs, friends...but all tried and well tested recipes, mostly home cooked every day meals with a conscious effort on what is going into the pot and in the body as well.
