Namaste dear viewers,
Little Background About Me
My name is Bhavana Patil, I am from Harihar, a small yet beautiful town in Karnataka, India. 22 years of my life was well spent in Aditya Birla Colony in Kumarapatnam, Harihar. Here I was very fortunate to meet people from various states of India. That's where my love affair with food started.
My best childhood memory has to be sharing lunchbox with my friends. Festival foods added more joy. Anand Bazaar [A Food Mela] regularly held at our Colony was an event we never missed. Staying right next to a National Highway meant lots of Dhaba food, access to lot of mouth watering street food & add all the cool juice joints, sugarcane shops & on & on.
Mom's food tasted delicious, flavorful & she often served it with lot of love. Tasty food always drew a larger crowd & garnered lot of Compliments from immediate family & friends. I moved to Bangalore in Nov 2008 & started my IT journey. Having own money to spend & lots of options to choose from to eat meant more fun.
In 2013, I moved to the United States, continued my IT journey, made more friends - which meant more Potlucks & more food. Tried different cuisines & gave my taste buds lot more to crave for.
In 2015-2016 various Social Media platforms were abuzz with so many food related videos, posts. That motivated me to start a youtube food channel. But like always - nope, took a back step & gave up on my idea. In May 2016, we were blessed with our beautiful daughter Dhwani. I was motivated to start her youtube channel & capture all her beautiful moments in our life. What started as a fun project, gradually brought us lot of happiness every time we looked back & watched those videos.
My Blogging Journey
Finally in Dec 2016, with constant support from my Husband Naveen & motivation from a very dear friend Rekha Rao, I posted my first youtube food video. That was it, there was no looking back from that point.
Once you start something you are madly passionate about - you end up putting all your energy to make it work. Up's & down's are part and parcel of the journey, but it's totally worth it. In mid 2017, I launched Indian Veggie Delight blog & started to work on it as a part time hobby. Being a full time Mom, having a full time IT job & also blogging for hobby was taking a toll but motivating comments, constant positive feedback from close friends kept driving me.
Oh god, What should I cook today? Is a question which haunts most of us. Finding an easy answer to that question is the driving force behind my blog. Improvising food recipes & making them easy to cook is my passion.
I am extremely proud of my Instant Pot recipes , Low Carb/Keto recipes & Kids Lunch Box recipes to name a few. Seeing my family members enjoying the delicious food, especially my 4 year old daughter Dhwani is something that i thoroughly enjoy. I highly recommend you to visit those links & try those recipes & share your feedback.
Partnering with Mediavine in Sept 2019 & with Adthrive in August 2020 within 4 years of my Blogging journey has been a Dream come true for me. In August 2020 I quit my IT journey & decided to concentrate on full time Food blogging. Also there is so much more to accomplish, I am looking forward for it. Every minute, every hour & every passing day, I am in love with Food blogging. Sharing a recipe that your family loves & spreading happiness through food is something that I will Cherish the most for the rest of my life 🙂 Your motivational comments & helpful feedbacks inspires me more.
Thanks again for stopping by & reading about me 🙂 Happy Cooking.
