Seema's MildlyIndian


                                          In today's budding bloggers we have Seema of MILDLYINDIAN blog. A little about Seema in her words " Reading cookbooks especially the ones which had a bit of personal life to it was a fun relaxing activity to me. I was a no-good cook then. To my mother’s exasperation, I only read it, neither cook nor eat…till it reached a point where cooking began to become a relaxation activity. This is where I slowly build my skills.



Then as I got my brood together (who thankfully are equally smitten by travel) we begin our journey of expanding, experimenting and documenting our trails and tests.Testing new grounds we embarked on blogging two years ago and have been weeding our way through. This current project is the voyage of the Writer, the Food enthusiast,the Travel planner, the Cook, the Photographer, , the Restaurant hunter,  and more..

I believe in simple fuss free, flavorful food from my veggie kitchen , very often influenced by local trends of the places visit. My food goal will be to impart adaptability and sustainable values to follow through with ease. So, join me as I embark on this new chapter of my life… it will get exciting for sure. "

So, get set to have a little chat  with her....
