Hi! I’m Preeti Nayak, mom of 3, the author, photographer & editor of this website. My husband, Rajeev Naik, and I contentedly run this website together.
Here at The Yummy Delights, we share easy family-friendly recipes. Our recipes are tried and tested, taste delicious and you can trust that they actually work.
It’s been 20+ years of experience in practical Indian cooking, I started this blog to share easy family-friendly recipes.
The recipes on this site are posted with step-by-step pictorial guides and videos so that you can make them easily at home.
I am originally a South Indian, from Karnataka, raised in North India. Due to my father’s job, my family relocated to North India. Therefore, I grew up enjoying both North Indian & South Indian cuisines.
Since childhood, I have loved experimenting with new recipes from different recipe books and magazines. I loved watching Chef Sanjeev Kapoor’s Show Khana Khazaana.
I got married to Rajeev Naik and settled in Goa, India. He is my planning partner, the food stylist, & a great motivator to keep going on.
After marriage, I learned a lot about daily South Indian cooking, especially Mangalorean cooking from my mother and mother-in-law. Some popular Mangalorean recipes shared on the website are Chicken Ghee Roast, Chicken Sukka, etc.
How it started
I loved it whenever I was appreciated for my cooking skills during family parties and dinners. But never thought of taking cooking as a profession.
One day, my elder daughter Shreya encouraged me to start a YouTube channel. My hubby and my niece, Vaishnavi, supported me with this decision.
I started making YouTube Videos for The Yummy Delights, with the first video being released on 20 Nov 2017, which marked the beginning of my career as a YouTuber.
With every passing day, my enthusiasm kept on growing, which led to me starting this website in April 2018. That’s how the journey of this website “The Yummy Delights” began.

What you can expect from us
Here, we make difficult recipes seem effortless. You’ll find every little detail about the recipe with step-by-step photos and a recipe video. Besides that, the measurements of ingredients, timings, and the necessary steps to be taken while making the recipe are discussed in detail.
In our posts, we share recipes to prepare homemade seasonings for the dish, to avoid store-bought seasonings, masala, sauces & food colors. But if you prefer a store-bought seasoning, the recipes are posted with that option too.
My experience has taught me one thing-“Practice makes perfect”. Every day, I keep learning and growing, improving myself a little bit more than what I was yesterday.
I hope that my recipes will inspire you to learn something new.
