Sanjeeta kk from Lite Bite

Sanjeeta kk from LiteBite.in

Sanjeeta kk from litebite.in was one of the first food bloggers I couldn’t get enough from. I was inspired and ultimately impressed by her recipes and the amount of knowledge I gained after each visit. Sanjeeta was, and still is, a food blogger I am looking up to. One could call her my muse and Sanjeeta helped me to think out of the box, to be more daring in my passion for food blogging.

At first, in my food blogging journey, I came across different Indian food themed blogs. Frequently I would end up confused due to the dish names or because the recipe ingredients were described in Hindi. I wanted to learn more about Indian cooking, and I already knew some of the goan dishes, but I was struggling. That’s when i came across sanjeeta’s delightful food creations, which are clearly explained in English. Sanjeeta’s food blog litebite is also well designed which makes it easy for anybody to discover Indian food in a fun way.

Of course her food photos have been the driving energy to make us all go wow and run into the kitchen! Light but soulful food photography and styling, that’s what I would call it and the same counts for her food. I remember the time sanjeeta shared her childhood food from Rajasthan, which included tandoor cooked missi rotis, stuffed flat breads and a scrumptious and nutritious five lentils curry. Sanjeeta often shares 3 recipes in one post, which I find rather unique and refreshing. I was impressed by the colorful and fun sounding missi rotis and stuffed flat bread, but also as a lentil lover I couldn’t have been happier with the 5 lentils curry! In the same post Sanjeeta describes beautifully her younger years in Rajasthan, Northern India.

…it was just hot Missi Rotis and a big dollop of fresh white butter from our cows…those were the days.

Sanjeeta is not only an expert in different Indian regional dishes, no, she is also known as an avant-garde food blogger in India. Nutritious, handy recipes with non Indian ingredients, such as her lip smacking easy and healthy broccoli patties, or western recipes developed for Indian preferences, such as her variously flavored diary free and egg-less panna cotta recipes, show exactly what Sanjeeta is capable of. As I mentioned earlier, Sanjeeta helped me to think out of the box and these are just a few of her eye catching from scratch made recipes.

Lite Bite always invites my senses, it’s as if I could take in the aroma of flavors just by looking at the clean and well organized website. Sometimes I find myself checking out recipes ideas at random times. I would go “Oh but Sanjeeta made these sandwiches the other day, I think so I will try the avocado sandwich now”. Twenty minutes later and you will see me peacefully and happily eating one. That’s the effect that Lite Bite has on me. It’s difficult to explain it in words, Sanjeeta seems to be able to read my mind and she understand what I am looking for in food.

It’s not just the gorgeous pictures and choice of colors. It’s not only the words taking me on a journey and sharing a precious piece of her life. Also, it’s not just the food in all it’s glorious facets and smart choices of ingredients, no, Lite Bite is the whole food blog package, the little sun ray of a very talented women who has been bold enough to share her point of view with the world. India has been changing very fast in the last few years alone and Sanjeeta completely represents or so to say mirrors the emotion of a powerful but passionate nation and that is what fascinated me about Lite Bite.

Popular magazines in India have also been loving sanjeeta’s food contributions to the world and every time I am thrilled to see Sanjeeta rise as a shining star. I can smell talent and I bet that we will see more breathtaking treats from sanjeeta in the future.

Thank you Sanjeeta for having kindled my food blogging spirit! =)

This is such a great post! As a ” baby food blogger” I started to follow many food blogs to educate myself on the exciting world of bogs. I don’t remember how I came across “Lite Bites” but for sure I fell in love immediately with the stunning food photography as well as with the recipes that Sanjeeta makes. I am Polish born but I love the Indian flavors. At home I often make many different India style dishes and from her blog and I can expend my Indian food knowledge as well as my menu:) Beside; when I read her posts; there is something calming about the way she writes. So… bravo to Sanjeeta and many thanks to you!
