Rugelach | Jewish rolled cookie | Kukskitchen

I had many reasons to research Jewish traditions, the first reason being my favourite character - Ross - in my all-time-favourite US sit-com 'F-R-I-E-N-D-S'. The first thing I ever knew was Hanukkah (Chanukkah). Who can forget the ' Holiday Armadillo' :D. I was so addicted to 'Friends' that my dear hubby brought me their series for Christmas a few years back. Recently I found myself amidst colleagues (bosses :-) ) celebrating holidays like Hanukkah, Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Time for more research! This time my search revolved around Jewish food and my eyes swiftly landed on Rugelach -  a Jewish pastry of Ashkenazic origin.

Fish curry Trivandrum style featuring drumsticks | Kukskitchen


Being born and brought up in the capital city, I have a few favourites from trivandrum. This particualr recipe became close to my heart during my pre-degree days when my dear friend S used to bring in this fish curry made by her umma. I didn't know the recipe then, but made sure I knew it later on.

 I'm Sherin, aka kukku. 

A happy wife, an excited mum, a  responsible doctor , a friend's friend , a thankful daughter, a thankful sister and  an enthusiastic cook, food writer and food photographer . That's me in a nut shell.

A doctor in my day job and a food writer and food photographer by night. I came in to cooking because of the people around me, be it the women in family who are amazing cooks or the men who luv to eat. My husband is my pillar of support and my son is my best critic. :) Started cooking while I was at school, my first attempt being a sweetie, no surprise there for people who know me. I got interested in cooking more after marriage, as most girls do. My experiments with food blossomed after coming to the UK, where the grocery stores opened up a variety of foodie opportunities for my hungry tum.
