About us

Hi there, and Welcome to CheenaChatti :

If this is your first visit to CheenaChatti, please allow us to take a moment to introduce you to the site. CheenaChatti is a team effort of few like minded people who loves cooking and wish to experiment with tastes in their leisure times. Its all about cooking and nothing else. The word “CheenaChatti” is the malayalam (mother tongue of Kerala, popularly known as God’s own Country) name of the frying pan which takes center stage in any kitchen and thus we named our website so!.

Unlike most of the big recipe sites that you might find on the Internet with thousands of recipes, CheenaChatti is a simple website, with only a few hundred recipes, all tested by our chefs, our families or our friends. We welcome all of you to try our recipes, and if you would like, leave constructive feedback in the comments or through the feedback section of the site.

Our Chefs 


I'm Renoos, officially called as Dr Regina M, a doctor at profession, good wife at home and a budding cook in Kitchen. I'm completely in love with food and you'll most likely find me covered in flour, chocolate or both if I am not at the hospital 🙂

Hi... I'm SJ! Not a professional chef or anything even related to that... It's just my passion to learn more n more in the kitchen!!! Love adapting recipes, mixing 'SJ Element' into it and taking it to a new level I'm a big-time food lover, but a break in professional career made me dig into culinary world much more than before! And I enjoyed this process of self-migration from being "Food Lover" to "Food Blogger"

      Regina M Zamzam its my pleasure. and I really appreciate all the efforts you doing to bring the naadan recipes.
      unfortunately I don’t havve that opportunity to have naadan food for almost 20 yrs.. But I really missed my mom’s cooking. I really amazed how healthy is our food, comparing with western food, but still our people do not appreciate it.
      Thanks.. You all deserve he best.
