My name is Haneeda. Born and raised in India, I am an avid home cook with a passion for traditional Indian cooking. My passion for cooking and good food started at a young age. Growing up, my parents were constantly hosting friends and relatives. I have such fond memories of my mom's kitchen as I would watch her prepare tasty, wholesome meals for our family and our endless stream of guests. To me - cooking is just another way of expressing my love and care. I enjoy cooking for family and friends and love teaching people how to make quality Indian dishes right at home.
In my everyday life I came across a lot of people who loved to eat Indian food, but were very hesitant to cook it at home because they were intimidated by the unfamiliar names, spices and flavors. I wanted to make Indian cooking less overwhelming for the average home cook. Hence I started Haneeda's Kitchen in 2010. It is where I indulge in my 2 main passions- "cooking & meeting people"
My recipes are “simple” and “easy to follow” yet the taste is fresh and delicious. I hope you would join me for a class where I can show you just how simple and enjoyable Indian cooking can be!
