Her Instagram feed is full of drool-worthy food images, most of which have a descriptive caption, speaking of how you can recreate the dish at home by visiting her blog, Sin-a-mon Tales (link in bio). We're talking about dishes from Gooseberry Rice, Strawberry Cake, Croquettes, to the humble Idli and Sambar
