About Us

No one cooks alone. A cook in the kitchen is surrounded by generations of cooks past, the advice and menus of cooks present. When baking, follow directions. While cooking, go by your own taste.

I am, Kamala Swaminathan, from Thanjavur and settled in Chennai, Tamilnadu. I am a food enthusiast and love cooking. I started learning cooking from my childhood and still learning. It gives me much joy in making a great meal for my family to enjoy. I am cooking nearly for the past 50 years and have a collection of tried recipes, mostly authentic and some modified in my kitchen. This blog is an attempt to keep all my recipes in one place and share with others.

Most of the recipes here are traditional South Indian vegetarian cooking. However, I always like to try new things with different vegetables and ingredients.

I am also interested writing in my mother tongue Tamil and Recipes are available in Tamil at  அடுப்பங்கரை

My blog Kolangal is the outcome of my passion for Kolam (Rangoli).

Thanks for visiting my blog and enjoy!
