"This is a journey of my life since I was all of 12 yrs when I started my hand in cooking to now with displays of my learning and creations of recipes from around the world. My inspiration and role model has always been my Mum who has always created dishes from around the world and excellently well. I do not believe I would ever match to her culinary skills. I remember the times she could cook and bake almost 4-5 dishes in one go without ever letting one go under cooked or burnt! I was born and raised in Dubai, UAE and recently moved to India for family reasons. Kitchenette just means that over the decades, my kitchen has changed from that of my mum's to my uncle and aunt's, to my home in UAE and now in India. Pala't'te, describes both global cuisines ('Palatte'-diverse flavours) and pleasing diverse 'Palates'."

Thai Coconut Rice

This is by far the simplest and most flavoursome rice preparation ever. I made this preparation, this afternoon and served it with Thai Chicken in Kumquat Sauce.

I had made some Fish Stew earlier and served it with the Thai Coconut Rice as well. It goes well with the Stew as well. I will share the Fish Stew recipe sometime this week.
