About Me
You can cook great food if you know your Ingredients well and how to play with various flavour combinations.

Thanks for stopping by! My name is Rekha Kakkar and I am a professional food photographer and Food consultant based in New Delhi India.

Good food does not always mean cooking food with expensive ingredients or using elaborate techniques of cooking. You can cook great tasting dishes in your kitchen everyday, with the use of your everyday ingredients and that too in less than 30 minutes every meal.

That's what I share on My Tasty Curry { this blog} and Easy Cooking with Rekha Kakkar {My You Tube Channel}. Quick Healthy and Tasty dishes that do not make you spend whole time in the kitchen

My Tasty Curry is my food blog where I share my love of everything food and some snippets of my life along with another of my passion that is travel. I travel a lot sometimes due to work assignments and the family holidays which we take quite often because I feel that's the only quality time you can spent together especially when all of us have different working schedules.

My Journey

Having spent most of my life in remote stations of military bases with my husband while he was serving in Indian Air Force, there was plenty of time to learn many new things. A degree in life sciences to begin with, I moved on to study Indian law. My interest in web design and development led me to acquire a qualification in the field and it helped me to satisfy and express my creative side better.

After career span of 5 years of in the mad world of computers, chasing deadlines, and some health complication later, I found myself fascinated towards nutrition. Studying various food and their effect on our various body functions, it was during this time I realized that right nutrition is key to manage many health conditions that come with modern lifestyle. I went on to study sports nutrition and have been on board nutritionist for an Indian national team in the past .

Food and its various aspects of presentations got me hooked and combined with my childhood passion of photography I got initiated into a whole new direction. Food photography and styling started as a passion and that passion turned into profession.

The Universe has been kind enough to let me pursue my passion of food as a professional Photographer in India. I have photographed and styled for various established brands, cookbooks, magazines and also worked as creative consultant for various projects. I have been also involved in food consultation ( Including kitchen planning and recipe development) projects for food delivery services.

About Blog My Tasty Curry

I started blogging about 5 years ago. To give you some background, I am an Air Force wife and with the partying and social life in the Defence forces, food has always been the center of my life. Friends loved what I cooked, and asked me for recipes most of the times. One day, a friend suggested that I should start with a blog, so I chose blogging as a platform to share my recipes with family and friends. Gradually, when I saw pageviews increasing, I knew people liked the blog and my food photography. This was an incentive big enough to continue blogging and share my food and travel stories.

On "My Tasty Curry" You will find Quick and Easy Meals that any one can cook. On the blog I share recipes that use simple and fresh ingredients and can be put on the table in under 30 minutes or so. Recently I have started to write traditional dishes from my Mom's Kitchen which every one is liking. So Quick, Easy, Healthy and wholesome that's what you will see here, of course with some indulgences thrown in here and there.

Wholesome and fresh food cooked with fresh ingredients not only provides nourishment but allows us to lead a good life.

When it comes to eating I try to follow the rule of 80/20.. Eat 80% Real Whole Foods (unprocessed) and 20% of indulgence ( most of the times indulgences are healthy too)

I just love the power of social Media and love how it connects like-minded people together. If you too love it I love to connect with people.
