Hello and welcome to Saffronstreaks – a food and travel blog .
I am Sukanya Ghosh, the writer, traveller, critic, photographer and the cook behind this blog.
What we are all about –
At Saffonstreaks we are committed to entice you with our delicious recipes and some memorable travel experiences that we would love to share with you. Besides the recipes, we also sometimes write about food articles pertaining to the growing trend in the food industry and has also raised our voices against the rampant food adulteration happening in developing countries.
On Food –
Inspired by food , Saffronstreaks does not limit itself to traditional Indian cooking alone. You will find here a global palette of flavours and taste with specks of fusion cuisines scattered here and there that combines the elements of different culture and traditions. We believe every recipe has a history, every food tells a different story and being a history buff, we enjoyed reading through such stories. Our articles reflects all these aspects in some way and this we consider a great personal journey also. Blogging has opened up new vistas and renewed my interest in history of food.
On Travel –
Born in one place, brought up in another and been to many places in pursuit of work , life, happiness or whatever. With each passing year my restless mind flames the passion for traveling in me. And thus born the urge to share my personal travelogues with you. Our very fist trek to Himalayas was special to us in many ways, we just dont post beautiful photographs only, we gives you the inside scoop too to make your travel more pleasurable. The thankyou note that we have received from many has inspired us to write more on this and thus it becomes a regular feature on this blog.
With time, and on reader’s request, we had added a section on travel tips and guidelines that will help both novice and seasoned travellers to plan their itineraries.
On Photography –
Some four years back when we initially started this blog, we had only one thing in mind. We were looking for some avenue to publish our home cooked recipes, we never thought that down the years it will be so exciting and challenging. Photography was one aspect that we did not put much weigh on it. While “we eat with our eyes first” is true, the reverse also holds true “that every emotions can not be descibed with photographs”. You need words to do so.
So you may not find great illustrative food photographs completed with creative styling, we love to keep it simple here. Our photographs and styling may look repetitive, but they are able to bring out the actual texture , color of the food with decent presentation styles. As we are exploring more on this, we have recently upgraded to Nikon D 7100 and are learning new aspects in photography.
On a final note –
We are here to share our passion and dreams with you. We have set no goals to fill up this space with 10000 odd recipes. We love to share our choicest one with you, sometimes from daily mundane of life too that we think will inspire you in cooking healthy and tasty foods for yourself and your family and will keep you engaged too.
Inspire and be inspired is our mantra.

Who am I really ? Doesnt matter but if you are too curious – I am a geologist ; a star-gazer at night ; a history buff hence a museum bug too ; a wandering soul ; a occassional painter ; no singer or dancer ; a self-confessed bookworm ; an optimistic ; hopelessly romantic looking for some spiritual uplifting and a day – dreamer.
If you think this is not enough, you can read more about me here at Nari Sakhi.
Our aspirations –
Like every aspiring writer, I too secretly nurtures the dream of authoring a book someday.
