Traditional South Indian recipes and unique contemporary Indian fusion recipes adapted for the American kitchen.
I am a foodie, food blogger and cookbook author. You can read more about me on my about page. If you like cooking traditional Indian food and experimenting with Indian fusion cuisine, this is the website for you.
Each week I post recipes and interesting information relating to South Indian cuisine. I write about new recipes that I have created, ingredients in Indian recipes, a trip to India, a visit to a fantastic restaurant or anything associated with Indian food. I search for new ideas regularly to find out what is happening in the exciting world of Indian fusion cuisine. You will find a link to subscribe to my blog via email or RSS.
My latest project, Indspired, has just been published!
It contains original recipes that are a fusion of the
best of Indian and western cooking techniques and
s spices. It is now available from your favorite online
Kachi’s Kitchen, Family Favorites from Kerala and
Tamil Nadu, my first cookbook, features 140 authentic
South Indian recipes. It has received much acclaim and
praise with sales across the world.
I started KachisKitchen.com with many of my favorite South Indian recipes. I realized quickly that I wanted to create my own recipes that combined ingredients and techniques from other cuisines around the world. I try to provide a balance between vegetarian recipes and non-veg to satisfy everyone’s appetite. Find my Recipe Index by Category at the top of the page.
If you are new to Indian cooking, I provide an overview of South Indian cuisine that describes the unique characteristics of Kerala versus Tamil Nadu cooking. I have lists of the most common herbs, produce, lentils and spices along with photos to assist you with finding the right ingredients to use. I also included a list of the cookware that is needed to prepare Indian recipes.
