I'm gonna be featured on the Straits Times tomorrow on their series of home cooks. When I first saw the feature I was thinking it will feature mature folks with lots of experience in cooking. Apparently, the journalist working on this series contacted VSS who then contacted Pauline who put them through to me! Of cos' initially I was a bit worried because I dun have a fixed recipe for anything and on top of that I don't believe I have the experience of the 'full blown' cooks.
However, I was game for it because it will be a good way to spread vegetarianism. Later on I found out that from the journalist that they decided to feature something vegetarian because there has been many requests from readers to feature more vegetarian stuff! (The letters are working!) Plus they have not featured any Indian dishes so far, so decided to do an Indian vegetarian dish. So, I suppose it just worked out fine for me :) Here are some pics of the interview and photo shoot. Look out for it in the Sunday Plus!
That's me and the journalist! Finally I reveal myself!
The ST photographer who got me very excited over his big and powerful camera!
In my petite kitchen. Had to demonstrate some steps for the photo shoot.
