 About Me

My name is Nadia Sultani and I write for Modern Amma, a South Asian mom blog. A simple girl born to Indian immigrants in the USA. I currently live in Los Angeles, California with my husband, and 2 beautiful daughters, ages 4 years and 5 months.

I am not your typical South Asian mom who cooks top notch Indian food. I barely make Indian Chai except for a few rainy days when Chai just seems to taste better.  I love cooking my family QUICK hearty, healthy meals. The meals I cook are influenced by my mother’s delicious Indian food, my husband’s cultural Afghan dishes, and my exposure to diverse cuisines in Los Angeles.

I grew up in an rural American neighborhood with my 2 sisters. My sisters and I had very different experiences growing up as a child with little exposure to my South Asian culture. On school nights, my mom fed me and my sister Mac & Cheese, burritos, hot dogs, hamburgers and pizzas! We were extremely picky eaters when we hit elementary school so this was all we would eat to grow!

I was however, exposed to Urdu, which I can speak very well, thanks to my parents! And eventually I learned to love Indian food once I hit my teenage years.

I started the Modern Amma blog as a creative outlet to share my life experience of navigating motherhood as a first generation Indian in the USA.

Since my firstborn, I have started freelancing in Graphic Design. This allowed me to start working from home to be able to spend more time with my children.
