Food Fun

Had the best experience on Thursday evening!! Participated in a cooking program by a wonderful teacher/cook! The local library had a workshop put on by Mala Patel ( she demonstrated the making of Pakoras! This wonderful lady not only showed us how to make them, and let us eat wonderful things--she gave us wonderful tips on how to make Indian cooking much easier. I now look forward to her next workshop on making Samosas-to add to our Bollywood night menus. Oh that all lovers of Indian food would have access to a teacher such as Mala.

Welcome to my World!

Here I will hopefully help to spread news and information about my favorite obsessions! Bollywood and Knitting!
I have been enjoying and studying Hindi films for about 6 years--I had a minor introduction during a Turner Classic Movie "Summer of Bollywood" series where they aired 'modern classics'. My son introduced me to a young lady, who would soon become my goddaughter, who got me further into Bollywood. I have since acquired a large collection of movies, scholarly and popular books on Bollywood and a large list of reviews I have posted on Netflix. I, in my eternal geekdom, have also listed the movies I own and reviewed.
So, with the help of my talented child, I will hopefully be putting reviews, information, news about upcoming films, and other information and links on this site for all who wish to further their knowledge of Bollywood!
Come, enjoy knitting and Bollywood with me--I hope to make it fun for all!
