The Curry Cravings ™ LLC Kitchen Blog takes you to a place of discovery and conversation of all things that feed us, a place that lies at the intersection of home, family and personal growth.

  • Print Books – place to order any print books directly from me.

    • Books – what is self-publishing & why my books are not in most bookstores.

  • Ayurveda – what is it, and how it features into my work.

    • (H).OM.E - is where we share personal discoveries of our place in the world and our quest to be better humans.

  • Simmering – is what is happening now, at the kitchen counter, is where we want to be children at, to jump up and sit on so, or to lean into and linger if only just long enough to see what is cooking and being in the moment.

  • Kitchen Island - is the metaphorical place where we gather to talk about food and life, for how-to’s, begin long heart-to-hearts with a friend over tea or something stronger.

  • Recipes - shows us how to achieve classic flavors and tastes, read the stories behind them – in order to best appreciate them.

  • Bytes - is a place to find shorter published essays, critiques, reviews, interviews and media.

  • Extra – a space of effervescent expressions, a tasters’ palette of verse and creative writing.

    • Dabba – the essentials, masala dabba, or tool kit about what shape this blog.

Best wishes,
