While I may have a bit of a bias, I can definitely say that Indian cuisine is my favourite. And luckily for me, both my mother and mother-in-law are great cooks. Just don’t ever try to get exact measurements from either of them! A pinch of this and a dash of that…no teaspoons or cups in sight! Good thing there’s no shortage of amazing South Asian food blogs and bloggers out there to help guide me when I’m craving a dish that I don’t know how to cook.
Here are my top 5 South Asian Food Blogs.
This has become one of my favourite go-to Indian food blogs. All of Richa’s recipes are vegan, healthy, and flavourful. Richa has a diverse collection of recipes on her site, everything from Indian desserts to American classics. They all come with beautiful photography and easy to follow instructions. While it’s hard for me to pin down just one top recipe, her Vegan Naan recipe was a hit with our whole family (they taste like you bought them from home from a restaurant!).
Show Me The Curry
With their catchy and memorable site name, Anuja and Hetal have a fantastic compilation of recipes from all over India on this site. While the site has a much simpler design to it, the recipes have the added benefit of often have videos to go along with their instructions, making potentially complicated recipes incredibly user friendly. Recipes range from beverages to desserts and from vegetarian recipes to non-vegetarian options.
Veg Recipes of India
This blog is exactly as it sounds – a blog dedicated to vegetarian and vegan recipes. Whether or not you’re vegetarian, this site has something for you. With 1500 recipes including Indian street food, food from many different regions of India, and even toddler-friendly food. The food photography on this site is gorgeous and the dishes are always drool-worthy.
Indian As Apple Pie
Wait- apple pie is American, isn’t it? Well, so is Anupy Singla, the brains behind this blog and brand. I first discovered Anupy through her cookbooks (my favourite being The Indian Slowcooker), and checking out her site soon after. The refreshing thing about these recipes is that although she can produce traditional, authentic dishes, Anupy also includes many recipes with a western flair (for example, her Strawberry Chutney or her Chickpea Quinoa Spiced Poora).
My Heart Beets
While My Heart Beets is not an exclusively Indian food blog, paleo blogger Ashley has many mouthwatering recipes that bring her traditional Indian recipes into the modern American kitchen. Recipes like her Creamy Cashew Cardamom Smoothie or her Chai Spiced Chocolate make it easy to get your Indian flavour fix, even if you’re on a restrictive diet like the paleo diet.
