About padmum

You could call me Dame Quixote! I tilt at windmills. I have an opinion on most matters. What I don't have, my husband Raju has in plenty. Writer and story teller, columnist and contributer of articles, blogs, poems, travelogues and essays to Chennai newspapers, national magazines and websites, I review and edit books for publishers and have specialized as a Culinary Editor and contributed content, edited and collaborated on Cookbooks. My other major interest used to be acting on Tamil and English stage, Indian cinema and TV. I am a wordsmith, a voracious reader, crossword buff and write about India's heritage, culture and traditions. I am interested in Vedanta nowadays. I am now an Armchair traveller/opinionator/busybody!

    hi padmini!
    i’m enjoying your cooking videos so much!
    i don’t know if you saw my comment on the okra one.
    i still want to try fixing it your way with the spices you used. it looked delicious!
    i thought of you today when i ate at a restaurant and chose as my vegetable “fried okra.”
    i hope you try it that way too.
    some people use cornmeal like i said in my comment. just salt and cornmeal. the stickiness of the cut okra makes the cornmeal stick.
    but most restaurants use a flour and egg batter to coat the okra and then fry it in oil. good either way!

    Very interesting! And you look so lovely too! 🙂 My husband loves Indian food, so I really should learn to cook it.
