About Me

I’m Sridher, from Trichy. I am a big fan of food.I would like to have my plate filled with at least 2 to 3 colors of dishes. I really started cooking when I got bored with hotel food. I had tried some recipes, succeeded many of them but failed few too. I don’t want to bore you more. Please share your comments on this blog.
