W e L c O m E to Upala

  I am Harini Aravind, owner of this food blog. For a long time, I was thinking what to write about me, because I started this food blog just to note down the recipes for my future reference. Slowly this blog started to grow big with more recipes and more visitors day by day. All of your comments and wishes keeps driving me to experiment and bring in many recipes. But I am more inclined towards healthy and traditional recipes as well as the cooking methods which is forgotten in this fast-moving world. Whenever I talk about healthy recipes I come across a statement that "it is will not taste good". You should try my millet recipes, they are healthy as well as delicious. Give it a try and see yourself.I concentrate mainly on Indian vegetarian recipes and all my recipes are tried and tasted by me :). Coming to photography, first I was clicking pics with Nikon cool pix and switched to Nikon D3200 now. 

 Interested to know more about me, do visit my other blogs
