Coming from a family of foodies, all my family members have always been into trying out new food places, dishes and recipes. Therefore, ever since I was a kid, my dad used to take us out to different places to try new and different dishes from all around Delhi. That's how I developed my love for food and exploring new varieties of cuisines

Coming from a family of foodies, all my family members have always been into trying out new food places, dishes and recipes. Therefore, ever since I was a kid, my dad used to take us out to different places to try new and different dishes from all around Delhi. That's how I developed my love for food and exploring new varieties of cuisines. 

Whenever I used to share with my friends that today I ate this or I went there or talked about some new recipe I tried, most of the time they were clueless about what I was saying. 

That's when it struck me. I thought why not share my food-related thoughts and experiences with a lot more people than just my immediate friends and family so that they can also enjoy what I liked and learn from my experiences. That's how this page came into existence in April 2019 after my class 12th board examination.

I wasn't really that active as a blogger initially because college life took over soon after school ended but then the lockdown came in as the perfect opportunity. As it is, I was bored at home and had started trying out new recipes. So I thought posting these wouldn't hurt and that's exactly what I did. 

It was then that this page actually picked up the pace. Now I post everything related to food from homemade food to recipes, from street food to cafe recommendations and so on.



Which is your favourite cuisine and dish?

My favourite cuisine has to be North Indian. According to me, nothing can compete with a bowl of Dal Makhani and lots of Garlic Naans.

Other than that, my favourite dish is Kadhi Chawal. That's something I can eat all day every day.



Should food blogging be just a passion or can it become a regular career?

I really believe that "Where there is a will, there is a way."

In my opinion, food blogging can definitely be taken up as a full-time career if one is motivated and driven enough to. I have personally witnessed a lot of bloggers doing food blogging full time and making a good living out of it. 

There's nothing better than passion and profession coming together but as in any other field, this field too requires a lot of effort, hard work, consistency and patience to make it in the long run.



Which restaurants/food joints would you recommend to food lovers?


The best food outlets in Delhi have to include Mom Hand Momos in Satya Niketan. Their Gravy Momos are to die for. Also, Mini Nutella Pancakes from The Waffle Co. in Satya Niketan are absolutely mouthwatering.


What makes you appreciate a particular dish or a restaurant and talk about it on your blog?

I love exploring and trying out new dishes. Therefore, if a food joint offers something unique, it definitely earns brownie points. Other than that, since I'm a college student and am always looking for good food experiences on a budget, delicious yet budget-friendly food corners are always a huge attraction. 

Needless to say, taste has to be the first criterion, always.



Is there a dish you particularly associate yourself with?


For this, I think I would have to say, Golgappe. It is the perfect street food with an amalgamation of sweetness and spice that make it irresistible no matter how many you eat. It also resonates with my personality- a balance of sweet and spicy.
