If you ask M about my whereabouts, his reply would be, " she's in the kitchen". If I am not running around S, I am in the kitchen.
So when Nupur let us peep into her kitchen and invited us to reveal our kitchens, it was an invitation I could not pass up.
When I moved to this new apartment, I had swapped it for a galley kitchen, slightly larger than the current one, a fridge in the apartment and most importantly, a gas stove.
I was lucky that a friend was moving to India and she sold me her fridge just as I moved in.
So here I am , with a new kitchen with an electric stove, and still loving it all (much to my surprise- I mean about the stove)
My kitchen at a glance
The counter space I have available is just around the stove
I also want to take this chance to show off to you guys my NEW SUMEET MIXIE!! My Parents gifted me this 'must have' on my recent trip to India. My parents are the GREATEST!
I try to keep the counter tops uncluttered, but since I have very little space, I have to place a few things within easy reach. So right next to the stove is my 'Masala Dabba/ Spice Box' and a small plastic container with wheat flour(used for dusting when rolling chapatis), underneath the rack is a packet of wet wipes to clean up the space after I am done cooking and next to it is an orange tub, I use that when I am chopping up something to discard stems, covers, peels etc.
Now with a small kitchen and tiny counter tops, you might wonder how I make rotis/ chapatis.. well, I have this small rolling island, which doubles up as a medium to roll the rotis and storage, I keep some cook books and my electric rice cooker on it and I roll into the tiny kitchen when I want to make rotis,
The storage near the stove is full of the usual grocery items, pots and pans, crockery. I do have a narrow pantry, but it is useless as it is has no shelves, just one big cavity. I am planning to get the manager to put in a couple of shelves, if he will..
I can look into the living room from the kitchen and keep an eye on S as he plays or chat with M as he works or relaxes.
What I love about my kitchen is that I have trimmed some stuff and I have also firmly decided that I will not buy something unless I REALLY need it and in the process, I will try to throw out / donate something old and unwanted , before I bring in the new item. I will try and maintain the balance and the manageability.
So here we are, at the end of the tour. Have you clicked to join Nupur's party?
I am looking forward to all the entries. A peep into your kitchen, to see where all the fantastic recipes are churned out!
See you all soon at the link party! Have a great weekend! Pin It
