peppergarlickitchenHi, I am Nidhi. I feel cooking is happiness. I love to cook and eat. I make my schedules around food. I am sure, my love of food and cooking was genetically passed on to me. Women in my family are awesome cooks.  As much as i like the fancy food I constantly try to recreate the wonder of my mom’s dishes, that perfect curry, taste and aroma! I wish I can reach there some day.

I created peppergarlickitchen for two reasons; to keep myself occupied and share the recipes from home. I am still new and learning. I can spend full day looking at my favorite blogs.  Ah, I wish I could take pictures like them. But I try and work hard.

I have a very hectic corporate day job and struggle to keep up the blog with that, but I try my best.  Jobs took us (me and my husband dear) to Bangalore Mumbai now but home is Lucknow. So my love for Biryani, Kebabs and everything mughlai is given. Biryani is my favorite food. 

I also like to run, swim and bike, so I also try to keep my blog healthy, yes ‘try’. I wish and hope to run 100 miler some day and make the perfect Birayni. 

I hope you like this place here, I created with so much love and sweat. If you have any suggestions or simply want to talk; just comment or drop a mail to:  peppergarlickitchen at gmail dot com. I will be excited to hear from you. 

Much Love!

  2. Hi Nidhi,
    I came across your blog searching for mughlai biryani recipe. Imagine my delight when I read that you are from Lucknow. I was born in Lucknow too but grew up in Canada. I too miss home and all that is uniquely Luchnawi, so thank you for the recipes and tidbits, like Ghalibs shairyi.
