Indian Mom Breaks Tradition With Award Winning Cookbook
In the heart of India lives a wife, mother and award winning cookbook author named Nimi. Nimi Sunil Kumar lives in Munnar, India with her husband and kids. She is a traditional mother and wife who always puts her family first. Second, is her love for cooking! She dives deep into traditional Kerala recipes and makes them healthy and delicious. Her husband could see her love for cooking and suggested she write a cookbook - so she did. Her cookbook, Lip Smacking Dishes of Kerala, won many awards including 'Best Local Cuisine Book Of India!'
