Hi I’m Hayley and Welcome to Jagruti’s Cooking Odyssey!


About Me

I am a Junior Doctor balancing work with catching up on reality tv. I was born in London with an Indian heritage. This British Asian background heavily influences my everyday cooking and thus the recipes on the blog. 

I was introduced into cooking, as many are, by my mum. I spent a good portion of my childhood watching my mum cook (whose name not so coincidentally is Jagruti) and I eventually gained an appreciation for the various ingredients that she would use. My mum herself learned a lot about cooking from both my grandmothers, so generations of recipes have landed in my lap. 

With all this enthusiasm for food, JCO was created in 2010 by my mum as her hobby as she was eager to share the recipes and knowledge of food she had gained over the years. Now I have taken the reigns and am forming my own culinary diary. 


About JCO

On this blog, you will find pure vegetarian and vegan recipes from India and around the world. Some recipes are healthy, some are for those special occasions. Recipes range from easy and quick to those requiring a little more love and attention. You will also find product reviews and restaurant reviews.

A smattering of travel is thrown in too from various getaways and outings designed to inspire and guide you on your own vacations.

I hope that by reading the blog, you are also inspired to get into the kitchen and enjoy creating wonderful meals. If you have a specific question about recipes that I have posted or for any other comments, inquiries, feedback or questions, please contact me via email or social media.

  6. Wonderful recipes! Are there any plans to compile these recipes into a cookbook? I would be the first to buy it (and many copies too).

  7. I am having fun on this site! As someone who actually used to enjoy Maru's bhajias (the restaurant was opposite our shop)I really liked your page on this wonderful contribution to global cuisine. The site brings back so many memories - food is like that. Like I started to think about matoki after seeing this page. I haven't had it for years! Anyway, thank you and I wish you the best.
