About Me

I could write for hours about myself, but there is a direct focus of this blog. About me in a nutshell: I am about 58 years old and married for 37 years. All along I am a typical house wife.

The objective of this blog is to inspire you to cook and show you how easy it is to cook. Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity. As I am from a south Indian Brahmin family, obviously the focus of the blog would be on South Indian Tamil Brahmin recipes.
But this part was supposed to be “about me”… :-)

About my childhood
I born in a small village in the Tirunelveli district called Kallidaikurici. This is a very beautiful village in the banks of the river Thamirabarani. My mother was a wonderful cook. Most part of my cooking skills has come to me from my mother and I am sure it’s applicable to every one of you. She used to cook a very tasty food for almost 10+ family members daily with the minimum available things and infrastructure. You can feel the flavour of Tirunelveli taste in my recipes and my birth place is the reason for the same.

Marriage life
I am married for 35+ years now. After marriage I shifted to my in-laws house in Nagercoil (Asramam village). My in-laws were from Kerala orIgin and this is the reason why you also see the flavor of Kerala taste in some of my recipes. My mother-in law is equally good in cooking as my mom and she inspires me equally. My husband worked for state transport corporation and got retried. I have three sons out of that 2 sons were married

Since 2006, I am living in Chennai with my elder son. As cooking was an integral part of my day to day life and also the inspiration given by my elder son and daughter in law I decided to share the recipes which i learnt over a period of time from my mom, mother in law, relatives, friends and through my daily experiences and present them in the best possible manner. I am just sharing my experiences and recipes and this is my daughter-in-law (Sowmya) who take the pictures and presenting this to you. Sowmya is coming with lot of current generation recipes and we are trying them in our kitchen and presenting the best outcome recipes to you in a best possible manner. Sowmya was an IT professional but now she left the job and spending full time on developing and contributing to this blog with encouragement from her husband. I would be happy to hear success stories from you who have tried recipes posted here. It would be my pleasure, if you've benefited in some way by what you read on http://www.subbuskitchen.com/.

I would like to thank my elder son (Venkat) and daughter in law (Sowmya) who are in behind the scene and help me in running this blog.
