Welcome to my world of homemaking!

Thank you, for stopping by. Step into my abode at Hemamagesh.com, and  I am all set to show you  what homemaking is about. A Homemaker does not denote the stay at home moms anymore. Everyone  who cares and contributes towards the making of the home is a homemaker. Its just a matter of being part-time or full-time homemakers.

Homemaking is about doing passionate  things, keeping oneself active  and engaged, recreating, reliving and relishing every moment that life has given us. So this site is for all such homemakers out there.

Unwind and get ready to embark on a journey, to re-discover all your passions as I walk you through  my chosen fields of cooking, baking, crafting, gardeninghealthy living  and much more in my own way.

I started  out with around 40 pages, with a splatter of posts under various heads, for  you guys get an idea of what was coming up.  Now, am up with 76 pages, with another  38 at various stages of development in my drafts folder  🙂  . Hoping to add lots of valuable info in the coming future. Stay tuned.

I am no expert, like the most of you and so all my accounts will be from a simple homemaker’s  view point , but the best one at that 🙂 .

Have a great time!! Get homemaking!!

Familiarising Indian food

Indian food

Not many people know the real Indian food. There are as many varieties as the people of India. The food in India is closely tied to the culture and the ethnicty of the people here. Most of the food consumed offers something good for our bodies.

Spices that are used, apart from inducing flavour, are considered very important from the health point of view. Though Indian food is predominantly vegetarian, the Non- vegetarian food is to die for.  There is a food for everyone ‘s taste from mild to spicy and sweet to sour.

Steamed food, fried food, baked food, pickles, fritters, mild food, rich food, gluten free, vegan, – you name it, we have it. Foods of all the popular cuisines of the world have also been indianised , and that adds to the already huge variety of food.

Through “Familiarising Indian Food” , I shall be giving in depth details of food from every part of India with recipes for you to try out.

Living in Qatar

Greenery in Qatar Buildings in QatarThis is a tribute to the country where I am presently living. Qatar is one place where you feel at home, away from home. The greenery that you get to see here is unbelievable  for a desert type of topography. Date palms line up roadsides  and lots of effort goes into maintaining the greenery, even at temperatures as high as 50°C.

Apart from providing valuable information for people planning to migrate to Qatar, I have also dealt with tips for people already here.

Tech Talk

Homemakers need to keep abreast of the technological developments happening in the world, to keep pace with the younger generation. Gadgets are not the purview of this post. Most of the emphasis here will be on websites that you never knew existed and on mobile apps which I have found very useful. There are countless sites and apps available that it is not possible for everyone to know about everything. I invite you guys also to contribute to this, so that more people are benefitted.

And finally the “Glossary“. Though I initially had only plans to post  the names of common ingredients in different Indian languages, I came across a lot of content that deserved a place in the glossary. So far I have managed to create 3 glossaries, lots more in the pipeline.

Check out my glossaries..

Hope I could provide some detailed insights on the contents of my site. I assure you that this will not be  ‘just another site‘  and I will not pass off as  ‘just another blogger‘. I’m here to make  some positive impact in one or more aspects of your life. And before I sign off, I request your support in this journey at “Hemamagesh.com”.
