About Me

I am Meena Ram. My passion for cooking has brought me until this part of life to start a blog and share the recipes to all. I have always been postponing this and finally am here putting my free time to build up this webpage.

I was born bought up in India. My mom is a great cook. She cooks very delicious food. I never learnt it full fledged. I used to cook only when my mom used to go to my native place. The next phase of life was marriage. I got married to a Malaysian, so moved to live in Malaysia. The real kick-start was after my entry in a joint family in Malaysia. All the credit goes to my Mom-in-law(MIL). She’s is another great cook. I learnt a lot of cooking from her.

After eight years we had to move to Cairo, Egypt in 2012. There I got introduced to few North Indian friends, and got lot of inspiration to try North Indian recipes. I like to read a lot of blogs on cooking, like to watch cooking shows and like to try lot of recipes. Little bit of baking started there. My hubby is a perfect food critic and he gets all the credit on this idea of blogging.

In 2014 we moved to Nairobi, Kenya. I have two boys. They are 10 and 2 years old. Here I have a house maid for five days and I found to have lot of free time. So this is the story of this blog. Whenever I cook something new I expect the three of them to say wow it is yummy. Now am taking steps to get more wow’s to get me going.

Hope u all will enjoy the recipes.

    1. Really where all have u been until now ?? Curious to know. It’s actually interesting to move around. Different culture, climate and availability. Lot of things come on the way which is a learning curve. The best part in our lives are living in Africa for the past four years. Never expected we would ever be here. But love it to the core.

      1. We’ve travelled across India, US and now looking to move to another country this year (my job’s blessing as I like to say).

        My wife doesn’t like moving around much though.
