“Chakhum” in manipuri/meiteilon means kitchen, the name a tribute to Manipur, my native place. “Wari Watai” in manipuri/meiteilon means chit chat.
This is an attempt to capture my journey of learning cooking, trying out food and hence will contain my fav. recipes/food from all different places I have been. I will be introducing and talking about Manipuri food/vegetables too. Also I will be chit chatting on topics which are of interest to me.
This will help me to organise on the recipes I love. These are my favourite collections from others recipe and some my own (which have been discovered by fluke and will be very less in numbers;). Cooking so far has been hit & trial and I depend heavily strictly on the recipe and cannot cook without my recipe book/printout in front of me… If It’s a lucky day, the food turns out to be awesome 🙂 but there are days where the whole food goes to the thrash :(.
Thanks to all the food blogger from whom I get most of my recipes & aspiration to tray & cook and I don’t take credit for it 😉 . For dishes I want to try/like, I generally put a link of the original recipe and also paste the recipe (I do this because I have had cases where the link doesn’t work or blogger deleted content) content in my blog (with/without changes to suit my taste) and I would have given a comment to the original recipe owner. But in any case, if anyone has a problem in me doing this, please let me know, I will put just the link in my collection.
Thanks to friends/strangers who have shared related pictures captured in this blog. If you want to share a picture in my blog, please contact me and I will be happy to upload it.
And a big big thanks to all my blog readers for your continuous comments which motivates me even more to continue blogging.
