Hi !

Thanks for visiting my blog.

About me & this blog:

  • I am Megala living in Chennai, India.
  • When I became a mother I realized that the health of a family lies in the kitchen and then I started looking for healthy ingredients and healthy cooking practices.
  • I blog here mainly to keep an archive of our family recipes and hence I post the recipes for the food that I like to serve to my family.
  • Recipes posted here are influenced by my parents, relatives, neighbors and friends; my parents & relatives are basically from Tirunelveli, my childhood neighbors were from Chettinad and we have friends & neighbors from different parts of India. 
  • I feel we must be fully aware of what we eat and why we should eat them. Hence I provide nutrition details & health benefits of every recipe. 
  • All my recipes have measurement for all ingredients including salt, oil and water as they attribute taste and consistency of any food. 
  • All my recipes have step-by-step pictorial illustration, hence bachelors or even children can try them just by looking at the pictures; yet I recommend to read the recipe for some useful tips.

I thank my husband for his support & encouragement and my son for teaching me photography.

I also thank my mother who has been inspiring me to work harder and I dedicate this blog to my late father who used to gift me books on health & nutrition.
