About Us

A cook in the kitchen is not alone; they are surrounded by the generations of cooks before them, as well as the advice and recipes of those currently cooking. When baking, it is important to follow directions precisely; however, when cooking, feel free to trust your own taste.

I am Kamala Swaminathan, a food enthusiast from Thanjavur, Tamil Nadu who has been happily settled in Chennai. I have been cooking for almost 60 years now, and have a collection of tried-and-tested recipes, a combination of traditional South Indian vegetarian dishes and some modified recipes. I started this blog in 2006 to document my recipes and share them with others.

I also enjoy writing in my mother tongue, Tamil, and you can find some of my recipes in Tamil at அடுப்பங்கரை. Additionally, my blog Kolangal is dedicated to my passion for Kolam (Rangoli). Visit my videos at https://www.youtube.com/@kamalascornervideos
