About Me

My Love for Cooking

My love for cooking has led me to my cooking blog. Welcome!

I grew up in India and have been cooking since the age of 12. My father used to always compliment my cooking skills and joked about me opening a restaurant. Ever since my mom bought her first gas cook-top stove, I have been the one cooking family meals daily. I am a life-long vegetarian and have raised two children who are also vegetarian. After immigrating to the US, I started enjoying Western, Italian, Mid-Eastern, and Mexican food from a variety of restaurants. My interests lie in practical vegetarian and Indian cooking that can be done on a daily basis. I have adopted ideas from other cultures and recreated these menus at home with a pinch of my secret sauce.
