Hello Everyone!

I am so happy that Julie asked me to post about Indian food because truthfully, the best part about being Indian is the awesome food!

My name is Sana and I blog over at I have been blessed to grow up in America my entire life, so I don’t have the firsthand experience of fine Indian cooking. However, my mom is a wonderful cook and has basically taught me everything that I need to know.



Here are a few of my favorite recipes:

Just remember you can find all these ingredients at your local Indian/Middle Eastern/Regular Grocery store. Don’t be intimidated!

    This is great! There is not ANY indian food in Arkansas so everytime I go home to Texas that’s the first place my family goes to eat (we did last night)!

    Definitely need to try these!!

    Awesome post. I absolutely fell in love with Indian food once I developed a vegetarian diet. It is unbelievably delicious! I love making simple recipes at home, but you sure cannot beat great authentic Indian food from a restaurant. The eggplant curry and naan pizza recipes both look amazing!

    Hi Julie,

    I really love indian cooking because the spices contain a lot of beneficial nutrients which are good for boosting a person’s immune system to fight diseases.
