Step 4

Add ground meat to a pot on medium heat and start to break the meat into small pieces with a ladle. Add ginger powder, 1 Tbsp butter, Worcestershire and soy sauce and continue to cook for 8-10 minutes or until meat is fully cooked

Step 5

Combine meat and veggie mix

Step 6

In a large bowl combine all ingredients for mashed potatoes and mash until a smooth consistency is reached. Avoid using a hand blender as it will change the texture of the potatoes

Top with some grated cheese to create a nice crisp top layer

So for those of you who know me you know I have many passions….travel, shoes, sports, food etc. So after being too scared to try or making excuses or having 270000000 ideas before I decided what to do…I just went ahead and FINALLY did it!
I Love food. Cooking is my happy place, my meditation, my teacher and my soul.

My motto is – I LIVE TO EAT!

If you know me then you know that I would rather skip a meal than eat a tasteless dish. I grew up with flavours. So much so that I literally perspire spices (no literally my mom Prem Puri always decides to cook 4 minutes before I’m about to leave the house and I smell like a walking garlic and onion sauté). I am a walking delicious meal on most days! 😉

I come from a background of (self made) chefs/cooks and I grew up with my parents having a restaurant. I have been blessed with the exposure to so many different ethnic cuisines through my travels, cousin in-laws, friends and of course the city I was born in – Toronto, Canada.

I want to share this with everyone while I continue on my own journey to keep learning about the art of food.

I’m no master chef, not even close. I’m just your everyday girl who wants to cook 5 meals in a day sometimes just for fun. And I drop things…and burn things (mostly myself)…and break things and sometimes (just sometimes) make things that are just….unpalatable (facts)!

So if you like to cook, nothing #gordonramsay style, but just good ol’ delicious, healthy, hearty and food made with LOVE (secret ingredient revealed) then follow me on instagram @rkwhatscooking and on FB page Rita’s Kitchen – What’s Cooking.

I love feedback because life is still always about growth and learning and BETTER FOOD!!!

Hope to see you all soon!
