About Me


Who am I?

Hi, I am Anu, and One Teaspoon Of Life is my passion. I LOVE food!!! I really do. When I am not cooking or photographing food, you will find me either reading recipes, other food blogs or watching a cooking show on TV. This really annoys Raj, my hubby, but then, he now knows how to zest a lemon, so I guess he’s learning new things too. And learning is good right?

I am an electronics engineer by education and profession working out Bangalore.

Where am I from?

I am currently based out of Bangalore, India. While my roots lie in South India, I grew up in Goa – a small coastal state on the west coast of India, known for its blue seas and golden sand. Goa is home to Konkani, Marathi and Portuguese cuisine. So they have been an influencing factor in my cooking as well.

What are my hobbies?

When I am not doing anything related to food, you will find me slumped on a bean bag reading. I read magazines, novels, newspapers... anything that has a print, I read it. I also love to Travel. I want to see the world. Have you checked out our latest travel exploits yet?

Why I blog and What I blog?

Because I love food. Have always loved it. I  love experimenting with new recipes and trying new dishes, as far as they are vegetarian. I am a vegetarian, so you will find only vegetarian, vegan and eggless recipes on this site. I also love cooking from scratch, you will see that as you go through the blog. Since I am Indian, most of my recipes are Indian too and are filled with spices. Occasionally, other cuisines will make their appearance too.I hope you try them out, and let me know how they turn out.

Please feel free to share your comments, suggestionss, recipe request and feedback with me.
