Anindita Pramanick SheBlog

Thanks for taking the time to chat with SIW. Tell us a little bit about yourself and your blog.     

Anindita : I’m passionate about food and reading and my blog rediscovers mostly those classic Bengali dishes that are fast losing ground and rarely find a place in the lunch or dinner spread today. I have degree in Economics, ICWA and diplomas in various software professional courses, but I renounced my career to bring up my child and devote more time to my family. Now that he’s grown up I am exploring different ideas and arenas which interest me, cooking is one of them. I’m a restaurant reviewer also, love to visit new eateries and try new dishes. Besides, I’m a voracious reader also and reading takes most of the time of my day.

What makes your blog so unique and why should people read it?          

Anindita : The USP of my blog is that it provides simple, easy and fast to cook dishes, recipes that are mostly hassle free. My blog creates interest in cooking and inspires people to do their own experiments in the kitchen. All the recipes in my blog are well explained, illustrated with pictures.

How often do you blog?              

Anindita : I try to post at least once a week if not more, depends on the time I can manage to devote.

What has been your most successful blog post to date and what was it about?

Anindita : Most successful blog post till date is Chilli French Toast, a delectable snack of bread slices fried with eggs, onions and green chillies. It’s a hot favorite with kids, cooks in a jiffy and takes care of those untimely hunger pangs.

What do you find most challenging about blogging?     

Anindita : I think photography and good writing skills play a great role in food blogging. Its the correct amount of light, perfect angle which are needed to click those WOW pictures. I’m currently working on it, how to take better snaps and to make my blog more interesting. The biggest challenge is to capture more viewers which take lot of time, patience and hard work.

What are some of your favorite author blogs and why?               

Anindita : Sanjeev Kapoor has always been my favorite for the simplicity and variety of his recipes. I also love Nigella Lawson’s blog. Other blogs that I find interesting are BongMom’s Cookbook by BongMom and Passionate about Baking by Deeba Rajpal

What advice would you give to young women readers of SIW who want to follow a similar career path as you?              

Anindita : Nothing comes easily. You have to be patient and at it without losing hope, put in hard work and must constantly try improving your blog content to make it successful.
