The well-known jocular, jovial and jolly chef – Harpal Singh Sokhi, has given cooking a fun and delightful statement with his style of cooking and hosting the popular cookery show ‘Turban Tadka.’ His show is broadcast on India’s only 24 hours cookery channel – Food Food. For Sokhi, cooking is no less than worship; as he says, “Cooking is like God to me.”
Coming from North India, Sokhi says he spent his initial years learning various forms of cuisines, however, soon realized “my heart was in home style cooking, which could be replicated by everyone.”
His devotedness for cooking is evident from the fact that he spent quite some time researching Indian cuisine and its implications on health. Sokhi further strived to go ahead in his quest and create a link between Ayurveda and food.
This was of significant importance to him, as he strongly believes that the world is becoming more and more health conscious and for a society like India it is imperative to strike a balance between food and health keeping Ayurveda beliefs in mind.
He regularly organizes food festivals across the nation and has received a praiseworthy letter of appreciation from the Australian High Commission.
This buoyant chef desires to popularize the skill and talent of Indian recipes across the globe and strives to learn more each day, “There so much in cooking that each day I wake up, I find there is still something missing which I have to learn and this keeps me moving.”
