Born and brought up in a typical Brahmin Family in Delhi and married into a Punjabi family has transformed my cooking and eating habits in a different way. I worked as a science teacher and now has become a full time homemaker and food blogger. I love to cook for my family and friends and it gives me immense pleasure to see the happiness on their face after eating the food prepared by me. My secret spice for cooking good food is to love what you cook with passion and it will be the most delicious meal you make. My husband is my inspiration to blog and cook new recipes. He is my taster, critic and my sole motivator.
