About this blog...

I am a GSB(Gowd Saraswat Brahman) and hail from a place called Kumta in Karnataka ( Konkan ).I am currently based in the US. My staying in the US makes me think a lot about my childhood in India and all the things I miss about India and especially all our konkani food, customs and traditions.I will use this blog to pen down my thoughts, and whatever little I know about our food.

Well, about food, I seldom make authentic Konkani food, and many a times, I have to call up my Aayi asking her the same things again and again. And when I write them down in a hurry also, its very hard for me to figure it out the next time that I need the recipe. Same applies with recipes I take from friends. Coz I like to try something new once, then totally forget all about it. So looking at many other blogs and becoming aware of the blog- world :), I thought this will be a good medium, both for me to pen down and store my recipes as well as learn more from other bloggers. Food will be whatever I've learned over the past few years from my mom, my mother-in-law and friends and what I still intend to experiment and learn from all you out there, coz for me its a long long way to go :). Food and non-food, whatever I collect from now on, I intend to keep and cherish for a long time, for me and for those who will read them :).

Welcome to blogging. I have been to Karwar, one of my aunts was working as a Marine biologist there! Enjoy!:)

Hey there! One side of my family is from Karwar and the other from Kumta. I've never been to either place so I am looking forward to reading the rest of your blog about your memories!

Congrats on starting your blog!

I was drawn to this site by the word Konkan and, of course, my life long interest in food.
My Grandmother spoke Knokan. She was Goan but I grew up in Burma with her.
I wonder what the relationship is between Konkan and Goan cuisine. I now live in the central desert in Australia.
Great blog. I'll be back to explore it more.
