A famous chef and author, Julia Child once said that ‘no one is born a great cook, one learns by doing’. Kabita Singh seems to have followed this as she left her job to nurture her cooking skills full-time. In 2014, when her son started going to school, Kabita decided to utilize her free time by starting her own YouTube channel and giving her passion for cooking a name that we now know as ‘Kabita’s Kitchen’. Today she has a massive subscriber count of 11.1 million and is one of the few people to have received a Diamond Play Button by YouTube in India. Read on to know more about Kabita’s journey as a creator.

Here’s what Kabita Singh has to say about her content,
Primary aim to start YouTube channel was to follow my passion. When I started, I gave some thought to what type of recipe I should create. When I was in the UK, I had watched many recipes, in doing so I had identified a niche within the food category on YouTube in which I can post videos. The idea was to make recipe videos that show every minor detail of cooking and at the same time can be cooked with the ingredients which are easily available at the home/grocery store next door. The motto of the channel is that recipes should be so simple that viewers should believe that ‘everyone can cook’.
Considering this, production quality and setup is intentionally kept at a level which is relatable to viewers. When I started this channel, my primary focus was to create recipes for the audiences who don’t know much about cooking (hostelers, young working professionals, newly-weds, people staying away from home/homeland). As I went along, content evolved keeping in mind trends and demand of viewers, now the channel has recipes for everyone(people of all ages and all cooking expertise levels). Also, to keep up with time, I have upgraded my production quality. I primarily focus on Indian cuisine, I also make some recipes that are Indian adoption of international cuisines. I also create videos on YouTube shorts primarily to showcase kitchen and cooking tips and occasionally a shorter version of visually appealing recipes.
We absolutely love how Kabita decided to follow her passion and become one of the leading recipe channels in India. We can’t wait for her to reach newer heights and achieve many more milestones on the way. On a side note, we hope that everyone is taking care of all the precautions while stepping out.
