Chitra Agrawal - The ABCD's of Cooking

Chitra writes the food blog, The ABCD's of Cooking (ABCD = "American Born Confused Desi"), where she shares traditional Indian home cooking recipes using local ingredients. She was taught most everything she knows in the kitchen from her South Indian mother and North Indian father. When she's not teaching cooking classes or recipe blogging, Chitra can be found serving Indian street foods (sometimes yummy Indian tacos!) at events and artisanal markets in Brooklyn.

Her cooking has appeared in the New York Times Dining Journal and she is a contributor to Gojee, Honest Cooking, The Daily Meal and Brooklyn Based. Past clients have included the L Magazine, Brooklyn Magazine, 3rd Ward, FIAF and more. Chitra has studied nutrition and cooking techniques at the Natural Gourmet Institute.
