Hello! I am Minal Sharma, a blogger, foodie, curator, self-declared food connoisseur, recipe creator, a housewife, and a mother of two. I have been blogging for the past 15 years and I do all the cooking, photography, and writing here at Minal’s Spice World.
Ever since I was a young girl I was intrigued by all things food. Although coming from a humble Indian family I hardly got any opportunity to try the bounty of cuisines and varieties of foods and desserts available in the world. I realized that even Indian cuisine has so much to offer. Which is why you will see a lot of Indian Food here.
However, it was only after I got married to an Army Officer and explored the country and met people from around the world, did my culinary skills take a leap! I was traveling around the vast Indian Continent and coming across all these brilliant traditional recipes. Each state, each city with unique yet delicious food to offer. I also met many people and was exposed to foods from around the world, and obviously the introduction of the internet helped. You will read a lot about my army life and travels in this blog.
I started Minal’s Spice World shortly after my daughters entered secondary school and I had more time to spare. With more than 30 years of experience in cooking, baking, and dessert making, I have cumulated a long list of recipes that continues to improve and expand each day. I love to learn new recipes from different cuisines and modify them with my own twists and flavors. You will also see many non-vegetarian recipes turned into vegetarian ones in this blog with almost the same or even better taste.
You will find recipes from around the world in my Blog with a special focus on English, Chinese, and Indian Recipes, but with a difference. I love modifying and twisting recipes and it is my forte. You will find a huge variety of desserts, chocolates, puddings, curries, finger food, and even Indian sweets. You will find breads of all kinds, sourdough bread, stuffed breads, flatbreads, fried breads it’s all here.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this little sneak peek into my life, experiences, and who I am. I am really looking forward to getting to know all of you wonderful people!
