About me

Hi Friends….

                                I’m Subamathi Dhanaraj from Madurai, India; I am graduated in computer science (MCA). My Mom is a great cook, she is my inspiration for cooking, i used to help her in the kitchen when i was young. I was amateur in cooking and the poor fellows to eat my amateur cooking were my twin brother and one of my friends across the street. My hobbies are poster making, rangoli and art. In fact I participated in fine arts competition and won prizes. But later my passion for cooking started once again when I get married. My husband loves varieties in foods and I love varieties in cooking. I got bored by doing the same way of Cooking so I determined to do it in a fun way.

                             The main reason to start this site is my Family and Friends. My parents are the best and they encouraged me all the time, without them I am nothing.  I should mention about my husband who is the first one to taste all my Foods :-) , he is very kind and supportive.  Another reason for starting this web site is to get more and more friends like you (friends means Energy) and i wish this could serve as a platform to share all my recipes and ideas. I also include my nail art ideas, art from waste and kid’s lunch box ideas, this site is more about food and health. I like to know your opinion and feel free to post your commends, Thank You :-) .

    Hi Subha,

    Thank you for the Tamil video on Chicken Biriyani. It came out so amazing. I started cooking very recently and found it really tough to follow recipes online. But the way you presented the videos (specially with the timings and quantities) was impressive. I followed the video to the dot and my chicken biriyani came out really well. Wish I could send you the pic :)
    Thanks once again! Post more videos!!

For a bachelor, normally how much grocery item requires per month and what are the items needed. I am a non-vegetarian ( mutton, chicken, fish, egg),and fond of our tamil foods currently live in Australia. Can you please send list of items in English-Tamil-amount need for an entire month. I search all the sources in net and adding to my list. However, it would be really helpful if I get it from experts:-)!! keep post many videos and please send my mail id if possible( ns.chandrabose@gmail.com)

    Thank you
