Director Statement

In this Recipe Song Video I show my viewers how to make Thayir Sadam, a soothing vegetarian Curd Rice recipe popular all over South India - through a song written, composed, produced and performed by me. In keeping with the origins of the recipe, the song uses Carnatic music from South India as a musical base, with melodic and percussion instruments from this region. The attire too is borrowed from how women in this part of India typically dress.
