It took Kajal, a quarter-life crisis to awaken her true calling – cooking! When marriage took her to different parts of Africa and Hong Kong, she finally had the time at her hands to explore this talent. She also discovered photography at the same time. She combined the two passions by starting a highly successful, award winning cookery blog named Aapplemint. Now settled full time in Mumbai, Kajal splits her time between taking care of her baby boy, cooking up gourmet delicacies for her family and friends, writing food columns for the New Indian Express and putting to use her photography skills and moonlighting as a wedding movie maker.
