About me

I am Swathi, a girl next door whose world revolves around her husband, her first love and her beautiful 2.5 yrs old daughter.To tell you my story, I am a food fanatic, have a fetish for desserts and non-vegetarian food. After getting married and moving to Detroit, USA, I missed all the yummy food made by my mom and was left with no other option, but to learn. I started trying out my mom’s and grand mom’s authentic Hyderabadi recipes and slowly experimented them with my personal touch. In this process I learned that cooking is an art and a science which can only be learned out of passion and genuine interest.

Like many, I gained lot of weight during post pregnancy and  which was a lot of concern to me. I was determined to get back to my normal shape.

The first thing that came to my mind besides good exercise is natural, healthy  balanced diet.  As a good home maker,it did not take me time to realize that I should also take care and provide my family with healthy, colorful and delicious meals. Nutritious food need not always be about eating salads, raw veggies and pitying oneself about eating such food. It is only when all my friends and especially my 2 yr old appreciated my new recipes, I thought its worth sharing those recipes. There might be people like me who need just a push to start eating healthy and consciously. With very little variations from our regular food habits, we could definitely achieve  a lot.

So, welcome to my blog, showing you the path  to authentic Andhra recipes with healthy variations which I am also  trying, to lose and maintain weight.

Finally, as I am a beginner in this blogging world, I hope to improve my photography and documenting skills gradually, so please bear with me.

Eat Healthy, Stay Fit, Live Happy!!!!
