Reliable Recipes Online

5464689442_1949170fa2_mI really started cooking only a few years ago. I’m not crazy about it – but I do like to try new recipeshealthy, easy and most of all reliable ones.  While José has a healthy collection of recipe books – my resources are more the online variety. I have a new dish somewhere   – I decide I want to make it – I Google it – I find a recipe that sounds simple and it gets made. If it works well, the site is bookmarked for future use.  Why collect books and cuttings when you have such fantastic food blogs out there?

Here are a few of my go-to recipe blogs for healthy, everyday food that I thought I’d share with you today:

Sangeeta Khanna’s: Healthfood Desivideshi

I find Sangeeta’s recipes and food pictures irresistible.  Here’s a food blogger who knows her stuff and is so willing to share too.  Sangeeta gladly shared some of her recipes on Everyday Gyaan a couple of years ago and they were great. Sample a dinner she shared here. If you want a workable and personalized diet plan for yourself, do contact her here.


Healthfood desivideshi

I love Andhra food and Mahanandi is my absolutely favorite site for the various pachadis (chutneys) and podis (powders) that are an integral part of that cuisine.

Sia’s Monsoon Spice has some fantastic vegetarian recipes accompanied by her excellent photographs. Her site has a great indexing too.



José finds many recipes he wants to try out on The Guardian. Find link here.

What are your sources for reliable recipes?

  1. Thank you so much Corrine for these mouthwatering blogs …I was lost in them and suddenly it dawned upon me that it was your blog that directed me towards them 🙂 Am b’marking them right away 🙂

    1. You have a food blog? (Wink and grin back!). I’ve got the ingredients for the ginger cake – ready to go tomorrow. Haven’t baked in years. Will keep you posted about the outcome, Priya.

  2. Thanks for sharing Corinne. Sangeeta’s blog I visit regularly ,will check the others too.:)
    I support Jose ..I love collecting recipe books and cuttings a tad bit more than I love checking recipes online.

  3. You know I don’t like cooking…so never have a favorite cookery site. Whatever catches my fancy, I just look it up. If I have the ingredients available…then I try it out.

  4. I find I tend to search recipes online even more than referring to my tried and true recipe books. Always so many interesting sites to look at and lose myself in. I’ve been going to Weight Watchers and have been trying to eat more healthy by cutting back on sugar and fat in recipes. I still have to have my chocolate though. That’s an absolute must!

    I’m a fairly basic cook who does simple stuff but that doesn’t mean I don’t lurk and drool over fancy mouth watering recipes, especially ones with Indian foods and all the exotic spices. YUM! I wish I was better at that type of cooking. Hubs learned how to make a yummy curry from an Indian friend and I just love it. MMMM, now I’m craving Indian food.

  5. The internet has been a wonderful resource for me when I want to cook something new. I’m starting to forget what it was like before the internet.

  6. I am Sangeeta’s fan too. She shared her recipe on Social Potpourri recently and we loved her for it. Thanks for sharing your fav food blogs and recipe sites with us. Will check them out tomorrow.

  7. Great idea for a post! I’m not sure if I have any one favourite website… Sometimes I’ll search for recipes in Turkish so that I get a greater variety of results!

  8. I also like Sailu’s kitchen. She has a wonderful collection of Andhra recipes, and Bong Mom’s cookbook for, of course, the Bong recipes!

  9. Always used SAngeeta’s blog for some very innovative dishes… ! Now I need to check those new ones…

    the online recipe blogs are life savers I tell you 😀

  10. Thank you Corinne and Jose for listing my blog as one of your favorite.
    I am touched and thank you both 🙂
    I was actually surprised to find out this secret blog of your’s Corinne, Everyday Gyan is my favorite place you know well 🙂 This one I am yet to read .. on hindsight, I think I have read a post here about a day of birding somewhere. Right?
