Mallika Basu @mallikabasu_
Born and raised in Kolkata, Basu moved to England as an undergraduate student. She took up cooking after she started missing the food from her childhood. Given her half-Bengali roots, she started cooking macher jhol and sometimes the rajmas and Yakhni pulaos given her half-Afghani and Delhi heritage. Check out her Instagram feed for not only simple Bengali recipes, but also food from all over India.
Bhavna's journey as a food blogger is very interesting. When the software professional moved to Australia, she couldn't help but miss home-cooked food sorely. A blog was born and she started jotting down the recipes she ate while growing up. Her Instagram feed is everything Indian food, and her captions are a beautiful medley of emotions and nostalgia.
