Hi, I'm Abhi!
I am a content creator, a photographer, and the face behind the tips n recipes blog. The idea behind tips n recipes is to bring authentically tried and tested recipes, tips, and solutions for cooking problems we commonly face in our kitchen.
Story of tips n recipes
I was born and raised in India and now live in Australia. After coming to this beautiful land of oceans, I started an online business to manage my family and work. However, COVID suddenly appeared, and I struggled for over a year to run that business. Eventually, I had to give up as the expenses became too high.
I am a self-motivated person who doesn't want to stop because of one failure. I wanted to continue working but didn't want to leave my toddler daughter at daycare. It was difficult for me to trust anyone with her as we were new to this place. That's when I created the tips n recipes YouTube channel in 2020. I made my first video with great difficulty using a phone and struggled a lot with editing. And the funny part is that I have never posted that video. I started making videos and posting once a week, but the channel was growing slowly. Then, there came a turning point in my life when I started this blog later in the year 2020. By then, I had many video recipes, so I decided to write them for the blog. Slowly but surely, people started liking the blog, which boosted my confidence and fueled my passion.
Being from India, we usually eat rich food- high in spice and calories. But now, I realize that there is no use in eating oily and spicy food as these highly impact our bodies. The reasons for this could be anything ranging from ageing, health, lifestyles, professions, etc. I have faced several negative consequences of this diet on gut health like chest pain, acidity, and stomach pain. I don't want anyone to go through that condition. I am so scared even thinking of that.
So, in this blog, I have focused mainly on creating recipes that are low in calories and spice to help someone who cannot tolerate oily and spicy food like me. But mind that! It does not mean I will not write about authentic worldwide recipes prepared using butter, cream, ghee, etc.
Expectations from tips n recipes
I share low-oil and spice recipes that are 100% tried and tested in my kitchen. If they do not work, I never post such recipes. Sometimes, I had to work too hard to create the recipe to meet the expected outcome. So, I am confident that if you try these blog recipes, you will never be disappointed.
Through this blog, I am developing a relationship of faith with all of you. I respect and love this bond of trust more than anything!!
In this blog, I share tips with every recipe that help you recreate the recipe easily. Even if you fail to develop, please feel free to reach me to discuss the issues.
You will find all the recipes step-by-step, with detailed instructions and pictures to make them easy to understand and clear. Also, I mention all recipes in the tips n recipes blog with precise measurements to get the results as expected.
My goal is to give ideas about experimenting with food, tips, and hacks to get the job done faster, creating great recipes for kids, busy parents, bachelors, kitchen beginners, and everyone who enjoys cooking.

- FODMAP-friendly recipes

I believe there is no limit to learning because everyday life teaches us something new. So, I keep learning new things that add value to my life. I also look forward to meeting new people, exploring their culture, learning their cuisine, and improvising my skills.
It is unfair not to mention my cutie, as she is the one who inspires me a lot. I never discuss my work with her. Despite that, she is always on a mission to bring new ideas for me to develop recipes. Thanks to her creative mind for suggesting me sugar cookies, fudge stars for Christmas, rainbow cakes, and Christmas tree cake recipes for the blog.
It has been beyond my expectation for her to be empathetic and sensible. Even some other day, she brought cooking books from her school library for me to make kid-friendly recipes. I was so impressed and emotional too. (pic below on right-hand side)
Initially, when I started my tips n recipes blog, I was guilty of not giving her enough time as I was always busy with blog activities and video creation. She used to wait for me to finish my work until midnight. But now, I have learnt to balance things, and she also understands my passion.
I am proud of her, like every mother!! I love when she asks me questions about tips n recipes. It makes me laugh when she suddenly enquires how many subscribers I have on my YouTube channel and suggests different ways (of course, silly ideas) to gain subscribers. I would say that generation today is fast forward as these modern technologies keep them more updated than we!!
Friends, blogging is not a single-day activity as it includes day and night efforts to bring content that costs nothing to you!!
So, if you enjoy making these recipes, please rate, comment and share these blog recipes with your near and dear ones. It will boost my confidence and encourage me to carry on my passion!!
