Hello! My name is Supriya and welcome to RedChillies, a blog where I share my recipes, cooking adventures and musings. I consider this blog a creative outlet for sharing the recipes I have learnt and experimented over years. These are the Vegetarian recipes that I have enjoyed cooking and sharing with my friends and family.  Food, photography and writing considered essentials of blogging are all creative arts and this blog RedChillies is a manifestation of that expression.

Food is a part and parcel of our everyday lives. I grew up being exposed to good food and great cooks. I also had/have a penchant for learning recipes. After I took up the mantle of cooking I discovered that I enjoy cooking, experimenting and also learning new dishes. So I used this platform of blogging to share the recipes and culinary ideas with people across the world. I am a Konkani brought up in the wonderful city of Bangalore. I am a Vegetarian and I have influences of North Kanara, South Kanara, Maharashtrian and also Karnataka cuisine in my cooking.

I live in the United States with my wonderful husband and our 11 year old boy who is the light of our lives.  I am software professional and work full time for a dynamic, growth oriented company.  I enjoy photography, reading travelling, listening to music.

Why the name “RedChillies” …. 


In our family we love spicy food and chillies are a quintessential part of our cooking. Being a Konkani we use plenty of dried Red chillies along with coconut and tamarind in our everyday cooking.

So when I had to come up with a name for my blog, the name RedChillies just stuck.

    Hello Supriya,

    Not very long ago, when I started blogging, I stumbled into your blog…cant remember how, but I sure am glad I did. Your site was one of the first I added to my blogrolls and everytime I am in search of an idea to cook, I turn to your pages. Every time I explore a little more and every time I am more impressed. So, this time I thought of dropping in a word of appreciation. I love your site…everythign about it, the design, the recipes, your about me page the most, the photostreaming. It does look like a lot of work and its all come out wonderfully. Love your photos as well…they sure do inspire me to cook. Keep up the good work…Cheers

  9. RedChillies says:

    Hi Parita, goodness, thank you for such warm and encouraging words. I sure will visit your blog. I am glad that this small space of mine has been worthwhile and this encourages me to do even better. Well you cannot imagine how much you made my day (or week for that matter). hugs!

  10. Parita Sheth says:

    Am glad that I could bring a smile to your face Supriya…but be assured that you deserved those words of praise. and just to mention what I forgot in my last comment…Thank goodness that you are veggie as well…it makes my life a lot more easier

  11. Ramya Prahlad says:

    Hello Supriya – I have been using few of your recipes and I must tell you, all your recipes are wonderfully written, easy to use and can be made at home in a jiffy. Being in Beijing, its difficult for us to get indian snacks and sweets, so I make most of the stuff at home. All recipes are yummy and you are very good with your clicks 🙂
    Thanks to you

    My best wishes to you and your family.

  13. Jeanne says:

    Hi Supriya,

    I live in Fort Worth and found your blog while looking for a recipe for garlic sesame sticks. We are vegetarian/vegan family, and I would love to try some more of your recipes. Do you shop at specialty stores to find some of your ingredients? I have searched our local Central Market and haven’t been able to find some items. Would love any info you could post on sourcing ingredients!

    Love your photography and recipes!


  14. redchillies says:

    Hi Jeanne,

    Thanks so much. I usually shop at Indian stores (in Irving area), to get the spices, lentils and speciality vegetables from there. For diary/vegetables/bread etc I do the grocery at Kroger/Target etc. I Am sure there are some indian stores in the FortWorth area and you might want to give it a try. Let me know if you need any specific information about the lentils, veggies etc.

    Hello Supriya, thank you for an array of interesting recipes. A Malaysian and a ‘Bengalurian’ the past 3 years, am always looking for local or even modified recipes to experiment when ‘mil’ is on holiday.

    I searched for ‘tambuli’ as I was wondering what is ‘doddapatre’leaves are in English and found your site. I like the range of items that you have covered and the pix – motivate me to try. So will surely, try out your recipes. Thank you very much. Cheers!

  18. RedChillies says:

    Thanks Nala for the warm words.

    Doddapatre leaves called as Cuban Oregano are small thick leaves with pungent flavor. You should be able to find it in speciality stores in Bangalore.

    Hello Supriya,

    This will hopefully make you glad and proud. As soon as i started going through your small little beautiful recipes, my guess was, ‘this has to be a konkani girl’. And indeed !!

    I quickly went through the ‘About’ section and was very happy to see you mention ” I am a Konkani” 🙂 Brought a big smile on my face :).

    I was looking for a quick and easy tomato chutney recipe and it landed me here.

    All the Good luck to you. Keep Posting !

    Ah Yes, I am a Konkani too 🙂


  23. redchillies says:

    Zucchini chutney
    Tomato mint pilaf
    Pumpkin coconut curry
    Thank you! I cant wait to go get my groceries (today as soon as I hear back from you) and start sampling these dishes 🙂
