I am Padhu, an optimistic person who loves cooking, traveling and gardening. I  love to experiment in the kitchen. My specialties are Indian food and my blog focuses  on simple and easy to cook recipes. I live in India with my husband and 2 children. I have always been keen on natural ways to keep oneself  fit and beautiful and eagerly learn't  many home made beauty tips and tricks from my grandmother, mom and aunty. I also run a health and beauty website healthbeautytips.net where you will find tips on how to look radiant and beautiful from head to toe using natural ingredients.

I have a passion for gardening and have a small kitchen garden in my back yard. I compost my kitchen waste and make nutrient-rich compost to feed my plants. Have a look at the toxic free vegetable harvest from my little kitchen garden. I have also conducted many camps and classes on arts for women and children. My other interest include yoga, painting, travelling, reading all kinds of books, arts and crafts, listening to music and watching cookery shows.
