About Almas Husain
My journey to cooking starts from the days of my childhood, being a daughter of a banker – transferred to cities every few years, I got my first hand experience to the different foods, recipes, vibrant traditions and cultural knowledge while living at these places. Coincidentally this journey didn’t stop there, but continued further even after marriage; Getting married to a IT professional made me to travel various places inside and outside India.
Travelling outside India was but obvious that we would miss the food and spices that we are used to. Like many Indians – we both are spice lovers, so we preferred home cooked with spices and this gave me a opportunity to test my knowledge and enhance my love for cooking.
While we are still living abroad, I get opportunity to meet lot of Indians – who now value the Indian food, taste & culture, I meet people/ friends from different states and places of India. No doubt the best way to connect with people quickly is Food – with food as a medium, its like sitting at one place & having a roller coaster ride to different language, tradition, culture and cities / locations of India. All the Recipes on this website are cooked by myself, this inspired me log my Journey of Taste – on my website (www.safarzaikeka.com)
Each recipe in this website has been made, photographed, video personally by me. This website is a small attempt for my love to cooking…
