Growing up in India, I initially had reservations about cooking, viewing it as tied to traditional gender roles. However, surrounded by the rich flavours and vibrant colours of Indian cuisine, I developed a love for cooking and sharing meals, inspired by my Mum's recipes and her emphasis on incorporating more vegetables into traditional recipes, instilling in me a deep appreciation for wholesome, nutritious food.
While my roots lie in traditional Indian cooking, my culinary journey expanded when I relocated to Australia 15 years ago. Exposed to a melting pot of cuisines, I found inspiration in blending traditional recipes with modern influences. Whether it's crafting comforting one-pot wonders like dal soup or experimenting with innovative twists on classic dishes like air-fried pakoras, and puff pastry samosa, cooking became my creative outlet and a way to express my rebellious spirit.
My approach to cooking values simplicity, practicality, and creativity, prioritising the use of fresh, seasonal produce while also embracing the convenience of store-bought ingredients to sustain a demanding lifestyle. I strive to strike a balance, ensuring that my dishes are not only delicious and healthy but also simple to put together.
I am here not just to share the recipes; but equally want to help foster a community of passionate, intuitive cooks, infusing spices in their day to day and promoting mindful eating practices.
Beyond the kitchen, I lead an active lifestyle, work full time and find myself to be very fortunate to be able to live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Having met my husband in Sydney, we bonded over our love for food, wine, running, cycling, camping, traveling and reading. With the support of my Australian family and friends, many of whom have been my enthusiastic guinea pigs turned cheerleaders, I'm excited to share my passion for Indian plant based cuisine with the world.
