About

Hello! I am Sunita Bhuyan, and welcome to my world…a world which talks of life as it happens, and food in particular.

I am currently living in the UK for the last 11 years with my family-hubby Dinesh, and two adorable kids- thirteen year old Rengoni and twelve year old Agastya. I am originally from Assam ,India- the land of the mighty Brahmaputra river,the land of hills, the home of the one-horned rhinocerous,  and most importantly the land of the world-famous Assam Tea!

A one time lecturer of English literature, and also a qualified lawyer,I gave up work outside home to give more time to my family. At the moment, I work from home as a tutor for primary school aged children, preparing them for competitive exams. In addition, I am  also the proud owner of a baking business, and also take Indian cookery lessons. Apart from blogging, my other interests include, reading, listening to music, cycling , nature and food photography.

This blog is a space where I record my day to day ramblings as well as the hits and misses in my kitchen, where I do spend quite a lot of enjoyable time. I have recorded quite a few recipes, most of them, coming from my oven as I simply love baking. I have always loved cooking, but, baking was my first love. I try to keep most of my bakes as healthy as possible.’ Eating healthy does not have to be boring’, is something I firmly believe in. But, of course, I do give in to cravings and indulge once in a while.

I have had no formal training in cooking/baking, and what you see on this blog is a result of my passion. I have developed most of the recipes myself through trial and error and through my never ending thirst to experiment with various ingredients and techniques. And the fact that I cook fresh meals on a daily basis does help too.

Some of the recipes in this blog also reflect the rather simple but pleasant flavours of my native Assamese cuisine, which I have grown up with. All the recipes posted in this blog, have been tried and tested in my kitchen, and have been made to suit our taste buds. I love experimenting with food and most of my recipes fall in this category. If you have tried any of my recipes, I will welcome any feedback, but, please keep in mind…palates differ from person to person.

I also have a feature in my blog- cooking videos, which, I hope, will be a real help to all my readers; after all, ’seeing is believing’, isn’t it?

After running successful Indian cookery classes in Ipswich and Colchester, I am now starting my cookery classes for small groups on a regular basis. For more details, check out my Cookery Classes page.

After more than eight years of blogging, it feels really nice to be a part of the wonderful food blogging community.

All the content in this blog (text and pictures) are mine, unless noted otherwise. It does take quite a lot of effort to keep a blog running. So, I hope, the effort will be respected. Plagiarism is not all welcome. If you do want to use any content from this blog, please ask first!

I also look forward to all your comments/suggestions on the blog. They are, what makes blogging, all the more enjoyable. 

Do make yourself comfortable…I hope your stay here will be a pleasurable one.

Sunita, I have always browsed your blog every nook and corner (almost), but Im reading the ABOUT section for the first time. Other than your recipes, writing and photography, I am also very impressed by your qualification and what you do now too. Woow..lecturer and lawyer by profession..amazing!!
You look beautiful in that pic. I always tried to imagine what Sunita looks like and you filled up the frame now. Rengoni sure takes after you…she is a copy of you..those eyes, the smile everything.
Anyways, great to know more about you girl.

Sunita, I am passionately fond of baking, like you! Your idea of stuffing inside, rolling, pinching the edges, either making a circle or otherwise is a great idea!! I do plaited bread with channa masala or paneer filling. Tbis is a fusion combo – Indian spicy masala + baked bread.
I love your food photos! They are simply breath taking!

Hi Sunita,

I love baking too but am always scared and vary of butter! Always try to go for recipes that have little butter or reduce it. Would love to try your recipes.

Dear Sunita
English Literature and Lawyerly accomplishments are definitely an accomplishment… but my dear you are most of all an ARTIST ! I happened upon your site looking for a recipe and your lovely photos and gentle commentaries captured me completely. Haha I forgot all about cooking anything ! I especially love your page on rain (one of my favorite things ) and the photos there. Here in Los Angeles we all wish for more rain and more trees. I’ll check in on your site often.

Hi Sunita,

I lived in England for 7 yrs., but sadly moved to USA due to job transfer. I miss everything in England, the lovely people, beautiful countryside and amazingly simple, yet delicious food. I was shamelessly addicted to Tesco Finest Dark Chocolate Ginger Cookies, and discovered your blog whilst searching for a recipe to duplicate this delicious biscuit. Your ingredients are slightly different than those listed on the biscuit box, but I’ll use your recipe as a guide.
Thanks and Cheers! :-)
