About Me


Hello There!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! This is Pushpita Aheibam, a freelance feature writer by profession, food writer and blogger by passion, a wife, homemaker, a mother to an adorable boy and last but not the least a food enthusiast. To me “Food is about the palate, satiating the taste buds and the tummy, wonderful eating experiences and sweet memories.”

This blog is my personal attempt to retain, cook, and share traditional indigenous delicacies of my home state Tripura, as well as inherited Meitei (Manipuri) delicacies, with locally available fresh ingredients. When it comes to cooking and eating, I love to look beyond Manipuri cuisines and cooking too. After all, food knows no boundaries. Hence do find different regional recipes too from time to time which are cooked in, and served from my Contemporary Manipuri Chakhum (Kitchen).

My Ima (Mother), a loving wife, mother of two grown-ups, a homemaker, a multi-cultural home cook,  a food connoisseur has been the major source of inspiration.  My foodie son and hubby have been motivating me to extend my culinary journey beyond the regular cooking.

The recipes  are tried, tested in my kitchen and tasted in my home. Enjoy the food journey here in my Chakhum.

Until then Happy reading and happy cooking!

~ Pushpita Aheibam.

    1. Thanks Alka! Glad to know you liked the blog. Manipuri cuisines has spices and ingredients similar to Bengali and Odia cuisines. Manipuri cuisines of Manipuris living outside Manipur get a local taste due to a multicultural background. We make use of local herbs too in most of the delicacies.
