Hi my dear friends, this is first guest post on my space, I feel so delighted to share with you all an aromatic guest post from my dear blogger friend Preeti as Chef PT… I love her different combo of her recipes which was very unique and loved her style of photographs… And you can see huge number of recipes (more than +700 recipes) within the short period… I really wonder how she could manage 2-3 posts per day… I have seen sometimes 4 recipes/day. Energetic and enthusiastic lady, isn’t??? 

We were started to chat through FB and our day by day chats make us good friends and so happy to have Preeti as my friend and one day we both talked via phone too… She is very sweet person and will give healthy tips, blogging tips and all…  When I asked her for a guest post she immediately accepted without any delay and she was busy with some other works so I won’t force her for a while… Other day she voluntarily told me that “Viji your guest post is ready tell me when I will send to u”, how such a humble person is it??

Am so glad to have her guest post as first guest post on my space… Do visit her space to know more about her recipes and I must say that you will not miss her unusual combo of yummilicious recipes… 

Hi friends, this is my 4th guest post. And I’m doing it for one of my close and sweetest friend Viji. Even though we came to know about each other via blog, but she came too close to me in last few months.

Whenever we talk, it’s mostly about blog, photography and personal matters. When she asked me for a guest post, I was so happy that I accepted it immediately. But could not give her in time as I was caught with some personal issues. Viji, I hope you forgive me for the delayJ. (It’s my delight to have as my friend so time limitsJ).

Thank you dear Viji for giving me this opportunity.

1.   What inspires to write food blog?
My only inspiration is my dear husband. At the start of marriage, I made myself busy with cooking. And I was always interested to try something new recipe every day. You may call it as enthusiasm to learn cooking. My husband made me to create a food blog so that I can save my recipes. Initially I didn’t show much interest, but now even if he asks to stop blogging I will notJ

2.   What did you gain after coming to the blogging world?
I have got lot of friends. I have found hidden interest of mine that is food photography. I didn’t know about ABCD of photography before blogging, but now to some extent I have improved my skills.

3.   If you meet your favourite celebrity chef what would you like to give them for a dine?
I would love to give them Karuvepillai Chicken Curry & Spicy Paneer Gravy with Roti.

4.   Tell us top 5 of your recipes that you recommend for us?
Sorry Viji, but Top 5 are non-vegetarian recipesJ (Ha… ha… No worries dearJ)
I will divide the list into two,
5 Non-Vegetarian Recipes
Andhra Style Egg Curry, Chettinadu Mutton Kuzhambu, Nethili Karuvadu Kuzhambu, Kongu Chicken Soup & Kerala Style Prawn Fry

5 Vegetarian Recipes
Baby Corn Masala Gravy, Chettinadu Puli Kuzhambu, Chettinadu Veg Curry, Paneer Kofta in Spinach Gravy & Hare Chane ki Dal aur Methi Muthia.

5.     Share some photographic tips to new budding bloggers.
·      As I’m still learning photography, I would like to share some basic tips which are really important.
·       Composition in important. Always make use of Natural Light. Try to diffuse the harsh light through white cloth.
·        Make use of reflectors like foam board to avoid those shadows around subject.
·        Try to take photos near window or door through which u get enough day light. Never ever go for Camera Flash.
·        And foremost thing, never think that only DSLR or SLR can take great photos. Even a normal Point & Shoot Camera can do your work provided you follow some basic rules of photography (light, composition, and styling).
·         And always try to focus the subject by following Rule of Thirds. Once you excel, you can break all the rulesJ
