Healthy, Tasty and Easy South Indian Cooking

About Us

Many think 'Healthy Food Cannot Be Tasty' and 'Tasty Food Cannot Be Healthy.' We are here to prove this common myth wrong and help you to cook 'Tasty' South Indian food 'Healthily'.

'Healthy food and Tasty food", was once the norm across culinary cultures all over the world. Today, people think they are mutually exclusive concepts! We ought to give some thoughts, as to why there is a 'connection' between taste and health. We aim to strike a balance between healthy and tasty food.

Our Commitment

It is obvious that junk foods hold sway over the palates of young and elderly despite the warning by health experts all over the world! This attempt of ours to train people to cook 'Healthy and Tasty' South Indian food would not only save the street cred of our young people- who would not want to be caught eating virtuous things like carrots and quinoa-but also pamper the well-entrenched tastes of the elderly as well!

Who We are

Made this country our home, we left a nostalgic food culture behind us in India. Cooking was not whipping up a quick dinner or heating up a half cooked ready meal. We really enjoy cooking as a relaxing, unwinding activity in which whole family takes part and celebrates together. We believe, the food we eat defines us!

Away from home, we have always enjoyed the instant gratification of a stiff carbohydrate fix and elevate the spirits with caffeine and sugar. By slowly shifting to these terribly sinful alternatives, life became so much easier all round! So, the temptation to partake is indeed overwhelming and inescapable.

"If necessity is the mother, creativity is the father." Yes, we began to recreate the food we enjoyed back home. We blended the spices systematically, revising the recipes from mums and grannies. Experimenting with the world's best cookware technology from AMC Germany, we are cooking vegetables without adding water, preserving all its nutritional value; frying and roasting meat without adding fat, preserving vitamins and minerals. With the advanced rapid cooking, we save energy, time and money... Yes, we are cooking-'Tasty South Indian food Healthily!'

Now we have got some TASTE TO TRAIN!

...South Indian Curry making!

South Indian food is commonly thought to be difficult and time consuming to cook and has become synonymous with hot, spicy, oily and fatty food. Well, if badly prepared any other cuisine in the world would have the above properties....South Indian food, though hugely popular, is highly misunderstood world wide.

The brand 'Indian Restaurants' play the major role in the conceptual change the way people perceive Indian food in the rest of the world, particularly in the West. Even the understandings of the 'basics' are interesting to note. Watch the 1983 BBC production of The 'Spice of Life' linked in trainingtaste'You Tube Channel' that throws light into this fact!

In traditional Indian cooking, 'Masala' is a very generic term to describe any form of blending spices. Adding water to it the 'sauce' or 'curry' is made. Again 'Curry' is not a dish by itself in India! We suffix curry with any main dish like Beef Curry, Fish curry, Vegetable curry, whatever.

The west has now conditioned its pallets to tastes which have been largely provided by commercial outlets,the so called Indian culinary experts. As a result the authentic tastes have gone unnoticed! The industrially manufactured and supplied 'Madras Curry paste' is the base of most of the curries commercially made, while traditional south Indian cooking almost always uses fresh ingredients and involves making dishes from the scratch. This means less preservative, tastier and healthier food!

Well, who wouldn't spoil themselves occasionally with the thick, oily, creamy restaurant curries and its accompaniments? But do not think we would ever dare to prepare these meals at home daily, for our family!

Do not get confused! Do not judge the quality of Indian home cooking by other people's failures and common opinion! It is a chance to see for yourself the healthier and tastier world of South Indian cuisine. It is a voyage together, you will never regret!
