Indian kitchen rocks -videorecipes

Here’s a new playlist on my YouTube channel. The playlist is called Indian Kitchen Rocks.

The videos in that playlist will teach you how to cook Indian dishes and the recipes and instructions are available both in Finnish and English languages. And best of all – you can enjoy these videos with the background music!

The videos in this series of Indian kitchen rocks are extraordinary in the sense that I have not photographed them. Instead the videography is done by my good friend who knows to cook Indian food and knows to cook it well. Many thanks to her. My job was to edit, translate and make the subtitles for the videos.

So, if you want to learn how to cook Indian cuisine, turn on the captions in the YouTube menu at the bottom of the screen and check these out:
