I am an Engineering graduate and was looking for a challenging yet interesting career. After realizing my interest towards food, I started a blog in early 2012 specializing Indian food. In the last 3 years, I have been able to come up with more than 1000 recipes. I am still trying to learn the cuisine as well as food photography. I've contributed recipes to Aval Kitchen (a popular Tamil Magazine), Complete Wellbeing Magazine, The Society & Honest Cooking.
