Let me define what a food-blogger job basically involves in simpler terms. First thing: Creating recipes that are fun and unique, different and inspiring to all you lovely friends who read my blog. Sounds very simple, straight forward and easy. But it’s not the case in reality. You have to be a lover of food preparation, food presentation, food photography which is the HEART of this job. Unless you love making food, you cannot enjoy the journey of food blogging and it is most likely that you end up giving it up. I love all the delicious food across India, so experimenting with new ingredients, new tastes is all fun for me. At the same time simple and familiar is really my favorite. Basic dishes with fresh ingredients that people feel comfortable making? I feel so good when that is what comes across through this little internet space. This green gram rasam is that, in a nutshell.
Next important thing essentially is about how tech savy are you in presenting your food online. Lot of technical aspects have to be learned, practiced and refined along the way for a successful blog. The tit-bits of WordPress, Photoshop, Google analytics, SEO, more about GOOGLE and other search engines play a vital role. On top of these, recent trend is creating pretty good videos of food which again calls for realization of video capturing and editing. These two themselves are a wide-area of study.
More said about food-blogging today than green gram rasam which is suppose to be hero of this post. It’s the basic dish rasam or saaru prepared using an awesome legume green gram. Green gram enhances the flavor and aroma of basic rasam to the next level though it fails to leave the trails of green color. It’s the rasam powder that over-powers in rendering the gorgeous orange color to this wonderfulness.
