I started off as a food lover & blogger who doodled for fun. This hobby gradually transformed into a love for illustrating food (and cats, because I am a crazy cat lady!). I am still quite an amateur illustrator learning everyday.
Recipes By Vinda Dravid
This is a recipe known only to people from my small community in the state of Maharashtra in India. Such recipes, using coconut and mangoes are specific to the western coastal belt of India, especially Maharashtra because of the abundance of these fruits. During Spring, raw mangoes start appearing in the markets and a countless dishes are made from these tangy treats. One of these is a salad prepared using fresh coconut, raw mango and raw chickpeas soaked in water to soften them. All of this is ground together with chillies and tempered with spices. Garnished with salt, sugar and fresh coriander, this is a unique and unknown savoury salad which I can eat in bucketfuls!
