Myself, Sobha Kesavan, a retired Accountant in a MNC based in Delhi, where I was staying for 26 years. Afterwards, moved to Bangalore and stayed there for about 4 years and then shifted to my native place ( in Thrissur district), Kerala, along with my husband. My two sons and both daughters-in-law are working out of Kerala as Software Engineers.
I have immense passion for gardening and have been doing it since my stay in Delhi and most of
the ingredients (vegetables) used in my recipes are home grown. I am interested in cooking mostly North Indian and South Indian cuisines. The recipes shared in pachakam.com from my end would definitely tickle your taste buds.
I will be always looking forward for your valuable feedbacks or suggestions as there is always room for improvement.
