Welcome to Kitchen Katta -With a hot cup of Masala Chai!!


Long time it was on my mind to start with a recipe blog..
I find cooking as a big stress reliever as every time I make something, it gives me immense pleasure of creativity...

On my blog you will find simple and easy to make purely vegetarian recipes most of which I learned from my Mom, my MIL, cookery shows and some through my own innovation :-)
I dedicate this blog of mine to my dear mom and my hubby who are great cooks by themselves and great foodies!!


Today’s my recipe to raise a toast to my Chaha (Chai) Love..Cheers!!!

  1. Where did you get that sun dried ginger (Adrak) from? I've been looking for it, and I don't even know what to ask for. Is there a brand name?

    1. Hi, there are 2 options: 1. You can sun dry ginger at home. It is simple and you just need to peel of very thin slices of giner and keep in for drying in hot sun for 1-2 days. Duration depends on how much sunlight you get. Powder it and use. 2. You can buy sun dried ginger as "Sunth" in stores. I have seen small packets of "Sunth" in More and Nilgiris. This you need to crush firstly in small pieces and then grind as it is too hard.
      Hope this helps!
