My name is Mariya, I’m Indian, I’m a college student and I want to write and cook more so this blog is here to give me the motivation to do so when I’m feeling too lazy.

Cooking is something I enjoy doing because it’s a great escape from whatever is going on in my life. Even if nothing is going on, it’s fun to just get lost in a recipe and feed the people you love.

Maamoul is pronounced as “maa-mool” and it’s a shortbread pastry that has a filling made of dates. I named my blog this because Maamoul is one of my favorite things in the world (next to soup, bread, and nutella). Another reason I named my blog this is because all the good names for food blogs were already taken :)

What you will find on this blog: Pretty much any recipe I make that I really like and think is worthy enough to share with you ; some baking, some savory dishes, and (I’m hoping) a lot of Indian dishes.
