About me

I am a techie by profession, married to another techie and because of both our work commitments, we have traveled across the world.
Coming from a family of foodies my passion has always been food and during all my travels I have sampled the local cuisines around the world; also when time permitted have done a few amateur courses . I love eating salads and soups but I cannot eat food that tastes bland ; so I am on a forever quest to research and reinvent healthy and tasty soups , salads and sandwiches. This led to the birth of light palate ; my homegrown venture where I cook healthy and flavorful soups , salads and sandwiches.

About my family

We are a small nuclear unit my husband , my toddler , a crazy but loveable dog and myself .

I like to MealTango because...

I feel today lots of people are looking for healthy and flavourful options to eat out and I sincerely believe I can keep their tummies and palate happy via Light Palate . Hoping mealtango will help me connect with them .

My interests

 Swimming, Music , Watching sitcoms on TV

Good keto salads. Its difficult to find places to order keto salads in Pune. I am glad there is some one near by who makes them :)

We had ordered four different salads from chef Shalini. The taste of thai mango salad was amazing and watermelon salad was very nice and refreshing too. The other 2 salads - 3 bean salad and khuskhus with parsley were also nice.
