The Secret Ingredient was initially intended to be “my” file to organize recipes. It was my husband, Sathya, who took it to a whole next level of sharing them with everyone by designing and creating this website.
I love to cook and I’m obsessed with it. I think about it, talk a lot about it. However, that doesn’t mean you will find only recipes here that involve arcane, laborious processes or require you to start making something previous day before you plan to serve it. I swear you will find recipes, techniques and ideas that are easy, quick and great for beginners too.
What you will find here: I will be writing about what is cooking in my kitchen, what I am learning as well spice it up with our pictures. You can find simple recipes; replicate restaurant style cooking, taste of many vegetarian cuisines around the world, lots of baking, my attempts and tips!
Check out the Recipe index for the recipes under many categories. There is a search box as well an option to get to a recipe by choosing the name of the ingredient. Do leave a comment or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a suggestion.
The wall that holds the picture neat: Sathya, the photographer, stylist and a person who enjoys every spoon of his meal! He has been the one who has inspired me to cook a lot of International Cuisines.
More about us: A couple in their mid-twenties, with a lot of ambitions and dreams. Right now we live in US. We are originally from Chennai, India but Sathya has also lived in Madurai, Coimbatore and Mumbai for a long time. I have lived in Trichy, Mumbai and Muscat (Oman). Both of us love travelling and have extensively travelled in India as well US and all of these places have influenced the way we think about food.
Gardening and Home Decor are few of other things that we love to do!
