Blogging started as a hobby to save my memories of good food which slowly became a passion. As I got encouragement from family and recognition from fellow bloggers, a new energy was infused and now I am full time blogger @MADRASSI
2. Can you tell us one of the most difficult ingredient/recipe which you have ever made and why?
No recipe is difficult if you are passionate and love to cook however there are few recipes which I feel little lazy to prepare such as banana flower, cleaning particular fish and cleaning lamb intestine.
3. What is your favorite cuisine which you love to cook?
I love experimenting with all kinds of cuisine but my favorite is south-Indian (Tamil) cuisine, apart from that I love Afghan cuisine, especially lamb recipes.

My all-time favorite is milk and surviving without milk is unimaginable for me.

I am a moody person and when I am out of mood even boiling water goes wrong. Don’t get scared, Kesari never goes wrong.

Mixie (mixer grinder), I don’t think nowadays anyone who cooks can live without it.
7. One chef who has always inspired you?
My hubby loves Briyani a lot so I started searching for the recipe. Luckily I saw a cookery show of Chef Damodaran commonly known as Chef Damo. I used his simple and impressive way for cooking biryani which came out very well and since then I am his fan.
