My Cooking station.


Print Friendly and PDF

My cooking station or the place I cook food for my family is just 5/6 feet....it is small and airy.

This is actually a work area which I converted into my small kitchen. Indian cooking has lots of splutters, frying, sauteing, smoking etc....so I opted for windows and not a built in expensive electric chimney....



I also wanted everything to be within my arms reach.....the counter space is small next to the gas stove...but I am quite satisfied with it.....the best part is easy cleaning.....I do not have a maid/cook to help....I do all my work on my own.....though the kitchen is small.....I enjoy working here....

If ever I need more counter space like kneading for pizza dough or rolling for garlic rolls or cookie making or cake baking....I just go to my pantry....there is plenty of counter space

The masala jars on the facing windowsill..... makes cooking a lot easier for me....everything within my arms reach :)

On the left windowsill I have kept the coffee, sugar, tea jars ...and also different types of oils which I use for my daily cooking.....I have a really big window on the left....no it does not get windy....but plenty of fresh air to flush out the fried/smoke smell.....I wanted my tiny space to be as eco-friendly as possible.....no electric light during daytime is another added plus point.....

My sink is big size (24 inch)....the idea is to wash big utensils like my biriyani pot, wok etc....on top of the sink is my good old steel plate stand.....were I can wash my plates and just pop on the rack, same with cups and spoons....

I will be cooking for you from this small kitchen of mine......welcome abroad!

  9. Hi Nisa,
    Good morning.
    Hope you had a nice weekend.

    I am happy to read a continuation to your kitchen story. Your kitchen though small appears neat and well arranged. I mess up with things here and there while I cook. The evening's after work are dedicated to arranging them to their right place.

    My kitchen is too big and more than required for a cook like me. I hardly prepare food for more than 2 people.

    It is nice to see how the friends prepare at home. Thanks for sharing this post Nisa.

    regards,
    Abhi
