1. Celebrate those special days
Until now I’ve only done little celebrations for crossing a particular number of hits. When I read about fellow bloggers having a big splash for anniversaries of their blog I’m inspired and envious. So this year it is time to do something about it – bake something special or even have a lil’ do in the blogosphere!
2. Go desi
Among my family and friends, I’m known as someone who is some sort of an expert on continental cuisine. I don’t know how it’s happened but people automatically assume that I don’t cook Indian food. Wrong. I do and I thoroughly enjoy it. Yes, there aren’t that many Indian food recipes on my blog but 2013 will change all of that.
3. Respect seasons
One of the most important things for any cook is to keep costs in mind and when you choose veggies or any produce that is seasonal it ends up being easier on the pocket. Not just that but this fresh produce is absolutely yummy, you need minimum seasoning and cooking time. It’s a win-win situation! When I see the Bhaji Gully at Grant Road brimming with fresh veggies, I go nuts! And that’s why these days my fridge is happily stocked with fresh veggies.
4. Don’t go to the same place twice
As much as I love certain places and their signature dishes, one of the things that I really want to do this year is to explore more new eateries. With the restaurant scene in Mumbai buzzing, this seems to be the perfect thing to do. I want to discover those hole-in-the-wall places, have one meal at least at some horrendously pricey star restaurant and find some delights on the roadside.
5. Get healthy
I love cheese, chocolates and all those things that go straight to your hips but in 2013, I’m going to go easy on the oil, butter and cheese. And that’s that. For one, I’m going to use the pressure cooker and OTG more often so I save on the fat but not compromise on the taste!
