Myself, Vishnu Priya Chellasamy, a computer science engineering graduate, a passionate healthy home baker and founder of "Zhagaram Bakes", a healthy bakery operating currently as a cloud kitchen. 'Zha' ('ழ') is a special letter in Tamil with its unique sound. I wanted our bakery to be unique and healthy and so the name "Zhagaram" (ழகரம்) .
I focus only on healthy options for our baked goods and use only whole grain flours and natural sweeteners like Jaggery and Panankarkandu, cold pressed oils, ghee. I completely don't use maida, refined sugar, oils and eggs. My vision is to promote healthy baking and help reach its benefits to maximum mothers as much as possible. I also conduct workshops on healthy baking which I feel has been a great platform to promote healthy baking. I have conducted 25 workshops reaching out to 100+ participants.
My mission is to conduct at least 100 workshops on healthy baking benefitting a minimum of 500 people and to set up a cafe which will be a to-go shop for healthy baked goods in Trichy, where any kind of age group people can come and have guilt free baked goods and one of the bests in Tamil Nadu.
I conduct workshops on healthy baking in the following streams.
Bake It Simple - Session for beginners to learn baking cookies, brownies, cakes and pizzas. The whole idea is to ensure people bake these items at home with readily available ingredients at home and have it without any guilt.
Basic Bread Baking - Session for people who have basic ideas in baking and want to master making the bread.
I also take orders on a pre-booking basis and deliver to customers within Trichy and also do shipments to places in Tamilnadu and cities nearby.
I am currently focussing more on workshops so as to enable people to bake goods themselves and I cater to people who cannot afford to bake it themselves.
