RCC Author -Janani,redchillycurry,about us
Hi, I am Janani, just like everyone I started to learn cooking only after my marriage, back then food used to be on time on table and mom used to take care of everything. I hardly entered the kitchen. Everything changed after I came off to USA after my wedding, I am a pure Vegetarian and I had no plan of converting to Non-veg, so I had very few choices  when it came to food in near by Restaurant, that’s how I started to learn more about cooking and started to explore lot of variety. I am not a big fan of Hotel Food I always loved moms homemade food, so I want to set that good example to my Daughter too, yes I have a 4 yr old daughter Jyothsna and I am married to Krishna Kumaar. I must talk about him. He is more like a good friend to me more than a husband, he is generous and very understanding. The minute I told him I was planning on doing a cooking site he encouraged me 100% and when I stared to take pictures in a regular camera and was upset with the outcome he immediately got me a DSLR camera. I am not a professional food photographer but it looks really good due to that excellent camera a big thanks to my husband. I have shared my recipes which I love making to my family and friends. Hope you like it too. My site is open to comments so feel free to leave your opinions.


 Everyone thinks that their mom’s food is the best in the world so do I, according to me she is the “BEST CHEF” in the world. My mom has passion for making simple and different types of food. I would say she has covered pretty much all the state in India. She likes to explore that much. My Dad and My Brother are big critics so if one of them is convinced another person isn’t ,so me and mom always had trouble pleasing both, but that surely improved our cooking. MY parents have traveled all around so that made her learn lot of other culture food .She always believed those golden saying “EASY WAY TO  A MAN’S HEART IS THROUGH HIS STOMACH”. I believe that too.

    Hey Janani…

    Great attempt. Love your website logo a lot. Neat presentation and I like the step by step pictures which would he helpful. You can spend some time learning food photography giving focus to the main dish alone with backgrounds having interesting / relevant objects. Just my 2 cents!
    With aunty as one of the authors, I am sure you will have great recipes. Wishing you all the best.

  14. Cheryl

    Hi Janani,
    I just came across your blog. I have been on the look out for an “Idli” recipe that will work in Canada :) I noticed in your recipe you mention Idli rice as one of the ingredients. If it is in the US or Canada what rice do we use? Can you please help me out there? I have tried it with raw rice and parboiled rice it comes out like moist rocks :( (Thanks. Cheryl

    • Janani

      Hi Cheryl,
      Well the rice that I use to get fluffy and soft idly is done by mixing idly rice with urad. I am sure u will get “idly rice” in a near by Indian store.I have few cousins living in Canada I know for sure u can get it. Par boiled rice will work wonderful with dosa but not for idly.Idly rice will be little small in size and the rice will be round unlike raw or parboiled rice.Please try it in a near by Indian grocery u will def get it.If you have further questions please do mail back. Hope the above information was helpful.

    • Janani

      Hi I submitted the recipe thanks for sharing it.

    Hello :)
    I’m Deeksha Shyam Sundar, a content writer for Spoon University. I’m writing an article on south Indian dishes and comparing them to the way north Indians prepare them, and a photo from your site caught my eye. It seemed like the perfect example!
    If it’s okay with you, I’d love to use this picture of your sambar for paniyaram in my article. Unfortunately, I cannot attach pictures in this, otherwise I would have done so to show you which one I’m talking about. I hope you get it. Of course, I’ll give proper photo credits.
    If you could let me know as soon as you can, that would be great. You can mail me at deeksha_shyam@yahoo.co.in
    Thank you in advance :)

    • Janani
