Hello, welcome to Ushaupchar
I am Usha, I was born in Tumkur and brought up in Mysore in an orthodox family. Being the eldest daughter I always took responsibility as a home maker and I loved doing it. I got married in a traditional family of food lovers, at the age of 19 yrs and hardly knew cooking at this age. But after my marriage it gave me a new turn. It made me to attempt different recipes from traditional South to North Indian, Chinese to continental foods. My husband and in-laws being very supportive always encouraged me to learn and try new dishes/recipes.
The portal was launched in Nov 2014 with lot of encouragement, love and support of my husband, son and daughter. Special thanks to Mrs Charu for encouraging and guiding me to open this website. I also acknowledge the guidance, cooking skills shared by my mom-in-law, mom, family and friends.
As my husband has a transferable job, I learnt many local recipes and presently I am residing in Mangaluru. In Mangaluru I met my friend Mrs Charulata Rao, who become a close friend of mine and she is a food blogger (www.charuscuisine.com), whenever we discussed about the food preparation, she expressed that you are good at cooking. She insisted and encouraged me to commence this blog. Hence I am thankful to her from the bottom of my heart.
Through my blog UshaUpachar, I have attempted to showcase a variety of vegetarian and non-vegetarian recipes. All the recipes are tried and tested in my kitchen. To make cooking easy to understand, I have added many images to the portal at different stages when recipes are cooked. My recipes are very simple and easy to cook. I am sure you will try out and like them.
Please provide your valuable feedback at the feedback section. Your feedback is valuable which will help me to improve and project even better.
Happy cooking !!!!
