About

Hello and welcome to M-A-D cooking fusions!

MAD ÔÇô making a difference is a word I chose to describe my Indian cooking site. Cooking always meant to me to be maddening, however I am foodie┬ámyself. After having worked for good 14 years in the corporate world, I took a break and decided to stay at home and become a good mum (ask my kidÔÇÖs and they will tell you), do things I missed all my life due to my hectic demanding job and commitments. A break in career of course by choice made me get into full-time cooking, learn various cuisines and do various things. Not to miss that I have found a new-born foodie in meÔǪ Earlier cooking made me feel mad, now I feel mad about cooking and enjoy it!!!

M-A-D cooking fusion – A simple thought to make a journal on my day-to-day cooking that would be helpful for my loved ones made me start this space. The recipes that you would see are the ones that I have loved cooking for my family and friends. This site is my way to spread the love for Indian cooking to all those who wrongly think itÔÇÖs too difficult.

Ok the first thing you should know is that MAD COOKING FUSIONS is a blog, created and maintained by me, Anamika. All the recipes, content and the photographs in my blog are purely mine Cooked, clicked (by my DSLR) and written by myself. I grew up being exposed to good food and great cooking by my mom but Id never cooked anything until I started staying home after my break from the madness of corporate world which is quite late a start in my life (better late than never) but now its one of my passions to learn more and more good and healthy cooking. I feel really good, as this is one of the ways to show my love for my kids I mainly cook for my kids (my sweet daughter who is 12 years and my mischievous son who is 9 years now) and trust me they love it. Honestly all my experiments are on them and because of them I got more involved into cooking and worked on crazy ideas to make them eat things they would hate to eat otherwise.

I am neither a professional cook nor have I attained any kind of training in cooking, all that you will see is purely because of the growing desire in cooking which initially started to kill my boredom after a break from the corporate life but now it is my passion.

Thank you so much for visiting MAD cooking fusions! ItÔÇÖs all about being MAD ÔÇô MAKING A DIFFERENCE┬á :) !!!!

Hi Anamika, liked reading about you and the karwa chauth story. In south India (at least in Andhra) we do a similar fast with a similar story but only during the first two years of marriage. And we do it the day before chauth (third day of lunar calendar). So different, yet so similar within one country. Keep up the good work :)

Hey Rosh thanks for such wonderful comments :) ….
A follow bottom should appear on the right side bottom of the page, just wondering why is it not appearing when you checking my space. It is always there from wordpress. Please try again whenever you free in coming days and see it possible, else I will have to check with tech word press support team.
I really liked your cooking and writing skills and loved whatever little I checked then but am from then following you so would get more and more cooking ideas from you too in coming time :).
Thank you once again for stopping by!

Hi, Anamika!

Your blog is amazing! I’m Filipino, married to a loving Indian husband for almost 9yrs now. Indian food is one of the best cuisines in the world, but also very intimidating for someone like me who has not seen a myriad of spices at all:-) Likewise, there are hundreds of blogs out there about Indian cooking, but I haven’t seen anything quite like yours that is clear-cut and educational. Your blog is absolutely a breath of fresh air.

Looks like I’m hooked for good:-)
