“The simpler the food, the more comforting it is, rather than something really fancy,” begins Bhavna, a food blogger based in Sydney, Australia.
In episode 4 of Bite On This, we talk to her about her love of simple, home-cooked desi food, about how it fills your stomach and nourishes your soul.
For over ten years, Bhavna has been blogging about food, sharing recipes, memories, and thoughts around food. She’s now taking this passion to a more professional level by building a brand that will allow her to host people and feed them her food, organise cooking classes, the works! We agreed that desi food is special and deserves the effort.

They studied thousands of research articles and recipes across the length and breadth of the country to arrive at this finding.
