About Me



Yes! I am the girl with apron and my name is Anshu . Qualified as a lawyer with deep interest in cooking defines me in nutshell. Born in a Family where Good Food is a top priority, I have seen my mother more in Kitchen than anywhere else. Cooking is a sacred activity in my family which ultimately leads to salvation of taste buds. I learnt to cook out of need and never out of interest. But gradually that need became an enjoyment and when I set foot on the soil of Mexico it became a passion. I had a good training in cooking Indian cuisines (Cant thank enough my dear mommy) which led to an inherent hunger to learn more. Exposure to a plethora of ingredients generated a deep inquisitiveness to know more about them. And here I am experimenting with food. I would like to share my version of recipes with you, some of these are learnt from my mom my mentor, some from talented friends and some from Uncle Google. Your appreciation or criticism will be deeply appreciated.

You can leave your requests below. I will be happy to post recipes of your choice. You can even send me pictures of the recipes you tried on thesecretingredient.anshu@gmail.com
