About Me

 Published 2007-Oct-01   Updated 2017-Jul-31

My name is Dahlia Sam, basically from Kanyakumari district in South India. A research student by profession, experimenting with new recipes has become my latest passion. 

First and foremost, I thank God for bestowing me with the wisdom to create this website and all the recipes. I take great pleasure in thanking my husband for the technical and moral support. I am indebted to my parents, my in laws and my friends for their kind co-operation and encouragement.

Having stayed in different places in India and USA, I've had the opportunity to try out varieties of food. This site has a collection of all my cooking experiments and the recipes that have been passed on to me by my family and friends.Some recipes are illustrated in the traditional way while others are modified taking into consideration the busy lifestyle and health issues. 

Most of the recipes fall under four main categories:-

  1. Traditional Indian recipes: These are some recipes that have existed in our country for many many years. e.g :- Poori, Chicken Biryani etc.
  2. Variations of traditional recipes: This includes traditional recipes with new ingredients. It also focuses on the people who have many diet restrictions and cannot enjoy traditional food. e.g :- Ragi Chapatti, Oats Dosai etc.
  3. Indian recipes for foreign ingredients:  There are so many Indians living abroad who may not have access to the traditional Indian ingredients. But the good new is that most of the foreign fruits, vegetables and grains can be easily adapted to Indian flavors. You will find many such recipes in this site. These will surely help our friends who stay abroad.Many such ingredients have started penetrating out Indian market as well. So our Indian friends who want to experiment could surely use these recipes as a guide. It will also encourage our viewers from other countries to add an Indian touch to their native produce. e.g :- Broccoli Bajji, Zucchini curry etc.
  4. Foreign Recipes: In today's world, everything is available everywhere. With the growth of science and technology, people are exposed to different cultures, cuisines and raw materials very easily. More and more people are interested in trying out something new. You can try out many international recipes in our site that have been tried and tested in our Indian kitchen. e.g :- Quinoa Pilaf, Pancakes etc.

Overall, you will find the site interesting and full of tasty food. The presentation and explanation may not be very professional but definitely simple to understand. It will surely motivate anyone to cook.Bachelors, newly weds, new cooks or anyone new to Indian cuisine can try these recipes. It is explained in very simple english with detailed steps. You can post in any queries or doubts any time. It will be replied within 24 hours.

I hope these recipes will surely help to improve your cooking. A person with lot of information is a knowledgeable man. But a wise man puts the knowledge to application. So I encourage you to try out all the recipes.

I also encourage the viewers to share their recipes, cooking ideas, simple tips, comments or any other suggestions as often as possible. It will help us grow and become more user friendly. You can do this using the comments section or simply send an e-mail to recipes (at) simpleindianrecipes.com.

Simply excellent! Three days ago, first time in my life of 42 years, I wanted to try cooking:-) As a beginner, I wanted to start with something simple. So, I searched on google for "simple Indian recipes' and found your website. On that day I had only a few capsicums left in our refrigerator. I followed the capsicum recipe and lo and behold..it was a great success! I can cook too! On the next day, slightly more confident, now I tried methi chicken. I just followed your steps, and it turned out simply fantastic. Yesterday, I tried hyderabadi biryani -- quite a complicated recipe -- but that turned out a wonderful dish as well. Today, I am trying bhindi do pizza. Wow! I never thought cooking can be so simple. Thank you Dahlia for the great website, great collection, and most importantly simple and clear explanation that even a beginner can enjoy.

Hi Dahlia, I am writing to draw your attention to a typo in the glossary of herbs.
Amaranth is typed as Amarnath. Kindly correct it.
Person   ()
Hi Mary, The recipe on Amaranth Leaves was posted by a member. Initially even I felt it was a typos. But after googling I noticed many websites have mentioned the same leaves as 'Amarnath Leaves'. So I guess both names are correct. Anyway thanks for noticing and letting me know.
