Nisha Vedi Pawar, Associate Food Editor,

Growing up in a home where her parents were always experimenting with food, farming and flavors, Nisha reaped the benefits of fresh, traditional dishes while growing up. Mealtime was a family affair where their love of food often led to the next meal being planned out. After getting married she found herself trying to recreate that ghar ka khaana ‘home cooked taste’ in her dishes.

As she started experimenting in the kitchen she entered the blogging world. In her aptly titled blog; ‘Love Laugh Mirch’ she shares family recipes and childhood memories. What began as a place to document her new marriage, her cooking journey and the construction of her new home has now expanded to share motherhood moments and tales about her colorful culture.

British by birth and living in New Jersey/New York, Nisha is a self taught food photographer and her favorite dishes are those passed down through generations. Her recipes have been featured in several magazines around the globe including, ScoopWhoop and ParentsCircle.  She has also interviewed world renowned chefs such as Vikas Khanna, Sanjeev Kapoor and Maneet Chauhan. Nisha’s primary influences have always been the food her parents prepared for her growing up and the culture they enriched her with.
Nisha’s no stranger to masalamommas as its previous food editor who has been part of our community for three years. On Masalamommas Nisha shares recipes, time saving tips, child friendly recipes, kitchen stories and more.
