About Me


Hi, I am Vanitha. Welcome to my blog!!! I am the recipe developer, food stylist, editor and photographer (still learning) of this new adventure of mine, started in May 2016!! 


I love anything Indian and spicy and baking calms me and excites me at the same time!! Hence the name “CurryandVanilla”.

This blog reflects my passion for Indian food and my obsession for baking. So any time I need some relaxation (yes, cooking and especially baking relaxes me!!) or need to be creative, you will find me in the kitchen.

I love cooking simple and healthy food with whatever ingredients I find in my kitchen or pantry.

I was always interested in cooking but I pursued it only after my marriage took me to US in the 80’s. It was there I started putting my cooking skills to the test  With exposure to many cuisines, my journey into this fascinating world took off and continues to this day!!



Hope you will encourage me in this adventure of mine by visiting my blog more often, trying out my recipes and commenting on them, so that I can continue to improve.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy all the flavors and aromas from my kitchen.

See you all in the blog world!!!
