Easy to Cook Home Recipes
About Mads’ Cookhouse
Hello there! I am Madhu, a young woman of seventy-plus who loves to cook, feed, and eat. My family calls me Mads. I cook up a storm in my cookhouse and my home always smells delicious. Borrowed teeth (dentures), borrowed leg (titanium rod), and borrowed eyes do not hold me back. I am notorious for increasing waistlines and decreasing will power.
If you love to cook or just starting out, follow me as I cook up and share some lip smacking recipes. Food should be simple and easy to cook. I share secrets from my kitchen (and those of my mother). So grab that pen and paper (share/bookmark button) and let’s get going.
A popular Goan dish, Xacuti is rich in taste and flavor. This is my take on the classic recipe that is easy to cook.
