You’ve started to learn how to make vegan food. You don’t quite need a cooking or baking class, but you could definitely do with some guidance. This is where I come in.
Some sample questions clients ask me during these calls
- How do I make my favourite dish vegan?
- Can I make my plant-based sauces and desserts rich and creamy?
- How do you make vegan food taste like egg or meat?

Who am I?
Hi, I’m Susmitha. I’m a vegan chef, food consultant, teacher, and business coach.
- Been vegan for nearly two decades
- Created one of the oldest vegan recipe blogs in the country
- Taught hundreds of people, including professional chefs, to make plant-based food
- Run India’s first ethical vegan restaurant with in-house bakery and culinary academy for seven years (2014-2021)
As you can imagine, when I went vegan, there were absolutely no vegan alternatives in the Indian market! For years I had to fend for myself. Thanks to this, I got to experiment and develop many recipes.
Plant based mylks, curds, cheese, tofu, tempeh, pizza, pasta, cookies, cakes, chocolate mousse, ice creams, Indian sweets, creamy gravies…I’ve made all of these, and more, from scratch. I’m obsessed with trying several combinations of ingredients to see which ones work well together and elevate the dish to the next level.
My authority in vegan cuisine comes purely from my years of personal experience, filled with successes and disasters. 😄
I also have experience in making WFPB (whole foods plant based), raw, and allergy friendly foods. Though these are not my primary areas of expertise, I have a fair amount of knowledge about them too.
Please note, I’m not a nutritionist/dietitian, so I won’t be able to provide you with health related advice, meal plans, etc.
Why do I offer these vegan food consultations?
Today, we’re spoilt for choice with vegan alternatives. The number of vegan food businesses in India has grown exponentially in the past few years. And non-vegan brands are quickly realising the potential of introducing plant-based options into their menus and product lines.
A lot of people from various backgrounds and age groups are understanding the ethical, health, spiritual and environmental benefits (and need) of veganism.
Though veganism is a complete lifestyle that goes way beyond food choices, food plays a significant part in making the shift. That’s why it’s important that you’re empowered to make your own vegan food. And this is so much easier than you imagine. Not to mention loads of fun!
When you understand plant-based ingredients and cooking techniques better, you can modify your existing dishes to veganise them, and also develop new vegan recipes of your own. And these vegan food consultation calls with me will help you with exactly that.
I want to shorten your learning curve, so you can experience the delights of creating vegan cuisine in a easy and joyful way.
“I first met Chef Susmitha soon after I’d turned vegan – at a Dairy alternatives workshop at Carrots restaurant. I did 2 more workshops with her later – since the first one was so great.
With her guidance – you come to understand that no recipe has to be rigid – you can be flexible with whatever you have at your disposal – and you will still end up creating something yumm. These small workarounds, easy hacks – are golden.
She is someone who teaches the most complex-sounding recipes – in the most easiest way. Not only does she simplify the method, and the ingredients – she also keeps giving you MIND-BLOWING tips, tricks, and easy hacks – that’s just some *golden* ish right there.
She has an amazing eye for flavours and textures – and shares very on-point technical feedback. I always feel so much more confident with a product at A Little Dipsy if I know that it’s Susmitha-approved!
I’ve also attended her raw, whole-food desserts workshop, and a Mastermind workshop. Apart from her technical teachings as a Chef – she’s such a bright person – her contagious smile and infectious positive energies can lighten up any room – even virtual rooms like her Insta Live discussions. Cannot sing enough praises of this amazing woman. I hope to keep learning from her, and pray that her positivity impacts anyone and everyone around!”

“Susmitha is an amazing Vegan Chef! There are good chefs, and then there’s Susmitha. She has an in-depth understanding of flavours and textures that closely parallels her love for good food. She is the first to step forward to support the Vegan Movement, always with a ready smile.
She is one of the first people we send our experiments to. If Susmitha loves it, everyone will. Thanks Susmitha for supporting Sampoorna Ahara in empowering people and animals to live compassionate, healthier lives!”
