About me and mywaytocook

Who am I?

Hello! I’m Ila, the passionate cook, recipe tester, and photographer behind MyWayToCook. I hail from the vibrant culture of India, where food is not just sustenance—it’s a way of life. My childhood was filled with the aroma of street food, which was a part of our daily activities. I developed a deep love for culinary adventures early on, spending long summer days creating snacks like [Samosas] and [Gulab Jamun] with my cousins. These moments of joy were shared with our family, making the food taste even better.

My Journey to Malaysia

My culinary journey took an exhilarating turn when I relocated to Malaysia, a vibrant melting pot of ASEAN cuisines and a haven for food enthusiasts. Here, I immersed myself in the sheer delight of simplicity, often discovered in a local eatery over a cup of Teh Tarik and Roti Canai at 1 AM, surrounded by cherished friends. The sheer diversity in Malaysian food, from Chapathi to noodles, each with its unique twist, has been a playground for my culinary curiosities, and I can’t wait to share these exciting and unique discoveries with you on MyWayToCook.

My Food Philosophy

When it comes to cooking, I am always up for a challenge. Whether it’s a new recipe or an old favorite, I approach every dish with a passion for learning and growth. My kitchen is a place of endless experimentation and exploration, where I can push myself to new heights and try new things.

One of my favorite challenges is perfecting the art of the Dosa, a traditional Indian pancake made from a fermented batter of rice and lentils. I love the crisp texture and unique flavor of this dish, and I am always looking for ways to improve my technique and achieve the perfect golden-brown color. I use a traditional cast iron pan to cook my Dosas, as it provides the perfect amount of heat and allows me to achieve that crispy texture that I love.

Another challenge that I enjoy is experimenting with Chinese hand-pulled noodles. This dish requires a lot of skill and practice, as the dough must be stretched and twisted in a specific way to achieve the desired texture and flavor. I love the way that hand-pulled noodles soak up the rich flavors of the sauce and add a unique texture to the dish.

For me, authenticity is a key value in my cooking philosophy. I believe that traditional recipes should be honored and respected, and I am committed to preparing dishes in the way that they were originally intended. At the same time, I also enjoy exploring the rich histories and traditions behind these recipes, as it gives me a deeper appreciation for the food that I am preparing.
