Hey there,
This is Raji. Welcome to my site “Talimpu | True Taste begins…

I love cooking. Its as simple as that. That is how Talimpu.com is born.

I like simple, easy and fast recipes. Simple without too many ingredients or complex flavors.
Easy without any complicated methods or procedures. Fast without consuming too much time.
Most of my recipes are Indian in essence with a touch of other favorites.

I get inspired from books, telivision shows and from fellow food bloggers.
And there are always relatives and friends to take you to the next level.

I post a recipe everyday at talimpu. well almost everyday. Everybody needs a sunday. Don’t you think?

“TALIMPU” is a telugu (south Indian Language) term.
Also called tadka in hindi, tiragamota / tiragamata in telugu, tempering in english.

This is how to do the basic talimpu/tadka–>

heat 1tsp of oil. Add mustard seeds and when they start spluttering add urad dal( skinned split black lentils) and cumin seeds. Variations of this by adding broken red chillies, curry leaves, asafoetida, tamarind, yellow split lentils …

They say talimpu gives all the heavenly taste to the food apart from salt. So talimpu spices are a must have.


Dont take the amount i give for each ingredient seriously.

Ex: If i say 1 inch tamarind ball……its because my tamarind might be old and so not that sour. Make sure to adjust the seasonings before finishing cooking a recipe.

Taste yours and use accordingly. The same goes with chilli powder or other seasonings.

I generally write the recipe for 2-4 people. Calculate the amount to suit your needs.
