Monday Chit Chat With a HomeChef - Karuna Pooja

I am so excited to restart my "Friday Chit Chat With Bloggers" event after 4 years and this time with Homechefs. It was my first event which happened in 2013 and also, it was a great privilege for me to have a chit chat and guest post of many talented bloggers on my space. Click HERE to view all my old Chit Chat posts. Trust me, it will be really interesting!

Now coming to the Season 2 event, instead of Friday, all my chit chat and guest posts will be published on every Monday. This idea is basically to encourage the Home chefs and introduce them to the culinary world. This might even help them to start a blog soon.

Let me introduce my first guest of this season, Karuna Pooja. She used to post her recipes in our food group and that's where our journey of friendship started. Since I am a great non veg food lover, I love all her recipes and also love the way she serves her food in Banana leaf.  It looks so authentic. Sometimes, I used to wonder by seeing the varieties of recipes she posts on Sunday. Its a complete feast for our eyes. I am feeling great and proud to introduce such a talented foodie and Home chef to all my readers. She was so generous to share her couple of recipes along with an interesting chit chat.  Thanks pooja for accepting my request and wishing you a great success in future.
