Namaste. I'm Smt Somayajula Gayatri Devi Sharma.
This website is my e-residence.

Atidhi Devo Bhava.
Use the A-Z list to locate the Recipes of your choice
C & Eat Section gives a panoramic view of all my recipes
Every Recipe has an English Text.
Before attempting a recipe, don't forget to read the "Tips and Points to Remember".
Type the name of a Vegetable or an Ingredient or a Recipe in the "Site Search", to find a relevant recipe.
Make use of the Glossary for Hindi, Telugu and English equivalents
shown in my webiste are
prepared from commonly available vegetables, pulses, cereals, spices.
These recipes are cooked in my ordinary kitchen. A few recipes contributed by my viewers are listed at Wish-List.
intention is to
wean away people from Restaurants and Packaged Foods and encourage them to prepare "Home made
Food"."Cooking Simplified is Fun" is the lead slogan of my website. Through lucid explanation of culinary tips I want to make
cooking, a simple fun.
Cooking at home and feeding the family members
with these tasty dishes brings in healthy life-style. I believe in Mother Teresa's words "Family that Eats
together and Prays together Stays together".
In each recipe, I discuss the proportions of all ingredients (except salt which is to be added as per individual's choice). If these ingredients are put in the suggested proportions and all the steps meticulously followed, one should surely succeed in replicating the dish which I prepared in my kitchen. And... this serves my objective!!!
I am a Vegetarian. I don't do non-vegetarian recipes.
I have consciously chosen to give my video narration
is in Telugu and at the same time to provide text of the recipe in English.By reading the text and watching my
video, Non-Telugus also can follow my recipes. In short,
language in the videos shouldn't be a barrier to understand what I want
to convey through my videos. For more details you may like to read "Why My Videos are in Telugu?"
nice if you BLOG your outcomes on the recipes you attempted. If you
let others know - so that they can confidently try that recipe. If
you fail, then also let the world know, so that others would take the
requisite precautions before attempting the new dish. Your blogging
gives me an opportunity to identify the pit falls, if any, and suggest
corrective measures. I encourage blogging
and would respond faster to the
queries raised there. I have decided not to respond to queries on
Youtube Channel, because often these queries are raised by viewers
without going through the text of the recipe given on my website.
Mine is a one woman show where I am the Chef, Director, Photographer, Playback, Sound Mixer, Editor and what not? I have adopted photo shoot mode to host my recipes. Through this method, I am able to carry the camera with my left hand, right into the frying pan, while the right hand is busy cooking. I am able to clearly show the action in the frying pan for every step. It would be difficult to hold a movie camera all through with one hand and it cannot go as close to the frying pan as a still camera does (because the water vapor blinds the lenses). Through this photo shoot method, I also believe that my viewers attention would remain focused on the recipe and action in the frying pan. It doesn't get distracted to what I wear, how I look, what interior my kitchen has etc. Thus, I feel photo-shoot-style is more functional compared to a movie mode.
belong to an Indian economic middle-class. My Kitchen, Utensils and
Kitchen Aids also represent the same. The gadgets are functionally oriented
rather than fashionable. Some of them are older to our wedding date!!! Their display would be average. Emphasis
of my video would be more on the recipe content, exact measurements of
ingredients , process involved etc. My videos lack the luster of costly cut-glass and
ceramic ware under arc-lamps.
