We have many restaurants around us to explore the unexplored food territories, but why do we normally shy away from making something at home? When it comes to cooking, most of us are set in our ways, unwilling to try something new. It could be because we don't have the right recipe or it could be because of those unseen ingredients that wouldn't be there in our kitchen.
