Passionate Home Cook, Ayurvedic Researcher, MBA, Mum of 2, Super Practical!
Aparna's childhood was filled with memorable experiences, often darting into the kitchen where her Mum and Grandmum were busy rustling up delicious Indian recipes, always eager to learn what ingredients and techniques they used.
Using knowledge passed down through 3 generations of Ayurvedic physicians in her family, Aparna has refined Indian ingredients & spices to make simple and quick recipes, which are not only Tasty & Satisfying but also Wholesome & Nutritious.
