Welcome to my world of homemaking!

our home

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. It is 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 to get an idea of what was coming up.  Now, I am up with 126 pages, with another  29 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 most of you and so all my accounts will be from a simple homemaker’s viewpoint, 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 ethnicity of the people here.

Most of the food consumed offers something good for our bodies. Spices that are used, apart from inducing flavor, are considered very important from the health point of view.

Though Indian food is predominantly vegetarian, non-vegetarian food is to die for.  There is 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.

International Cuisines

Food showing international cuisineEvery cuisine has something to offer us. Though some have made it to the hallways of fame, there are a lot more of them still unexplored. As I am greatly interested in trying out whatever I come across, this post serves my purpose. Be with me as I keep posting recipes from the most popular as well as unfamiliar cuisines of the world.

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 4 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 a positive impact on one or more aspects of your life. And before I sign off, I request your support in this journey at “Hemamagesh.com”.

      Thanx Joe.To access the glossary you have to click on the sub-menu, below the glossary in the navigation bar.As such the ‘Glossary’ is an unclickable menu item. Hope that helps.
