Three things about me

  • I love cooking, reading cookery magazines and watching cookery shows. I  love to try new recipes and share it with my neighbours. The feedback from them gives me immense pleasure. My other hobbies are singing, jewellery making, painting and reading books. Oh yes!!! I love to chit chat with my friends too.
  • I am a kind person who loves to have friends, a good relationship with my neighbours, friends and relatives. I would like to involve in social service to help the poor, orphans and the old people. 
  • I’m a very strong person. When someone shouts at me for the mistakes I made, I will humbly listen to it and ask for an apology.  But if anybody tries to exploit me, then I am always an aggressive person to them. I never bother for the certificate they gives me. I always fight for my rights and will fight to any extent to get my rights.  

My answers

Tell me one thing that you love about yourself ?

I love myself for being strong, caring and affectionate to others. I have a soft corner for needy, disabled. At the same time I hate Male chauvinism.

What’s your favorite dessert ?

I love all the Bengali sweets as well as chakkai varatti(Jackfruit jam).

What’s the funniest thing that ever happened to you ?

When I was in 7th grade, we visited Birla Mandir in Hyderabad. There was too much crowd and I wasn’t able to see the God properly. After coming out of the temple, I asked my parents who is this God Birla ? Everyone who came with us to the temple started laughing and even now we all laugh thinking about that day.

Name the person who inspires you the most ? And why ?

My dearest grandmothers – Meenakshi(Mom’s mom) who fought everything through patience. She is a charming lady who was loved by everybody. Seethalakshmi( Dad’s mom) who is my strength and who taught me to face different problems in life. She has a charisma and being loved by everybody for that. Hats off to you both.

What’s the most important lesson that your life has taught you so far ?

Never expect for anything. Expectations will always give you disappointments. Never fall into something without enquiring thoroughly about it.

My blogging journey so far

I started writing my blog as a hobby and to record all the recipes from my mom and grandma. Later I learnt one recipe after the other from them and started posting it here. When I started to get followers, I experimented different dishes that we taste in the restaurant and from the books I read. But this was once in a while. Yes, I enter into the kitchen only when I have the mood to do something.  My real blogging started after my wedding. It was then I started to cook on a daily basis.  My husband is the person who taste my recipes and comment on it. He encouraged me to attend different classes. I started learning many recipes.  Also before posting the recipe, I always send the photos to my parents and brother. They patiently see every thing and give me feedback. And amma, I thank you for patiently answering all my doubts in the traditional recipes inspite of your busy schedule. Now I have taken my blog to the next level with videos. Hope you will like it and enjoy.  My real happiness lies in making my husband to love my cooking. Before our wedding, he hates rasam, pizza, pasta, dosai with chutney etc., But now, he himself will ask me to make rasam, to make chutney for dosai instead of sambar, parathas, etc., This is my journey…

Advise for new bloggers

Start writing your blog without expecting anything at first. Just enjoy posting. Initially when I started I had hardly 10 followers. But believe me, slowly you will get more followers. Post regularly. Start adding different categories to make people to read your recipes easily. Then please dont be in a hurry. And my main drawback was not interacting with the fellow followers. Please dont do that mistake. Now I have started interaction and they give me ideas. Its nice to have friends all around the world.
