Since the mid-2010s, the internet has become more accessible to Indians, thanks to the sharp decline in prices. More and more people flocked to websites like YouTube which they earlier couldn’t because of limited data given by network providers. However, now with almost unlimited data in their hands, people can watch whatever they want to. And thus YouTube has become an integral part of our daily lives. We basically use YouTube for everything now – be it cooking, learning a new instrument, or just partying the night away. And because we’re so addicted to watching videos on YouTube at this point, more and more content creators are choosing to work on YouTube full-time, making it a workplace rather than a hobby – which is why there is absolutely no dearth of good content on YouTube.
With that, we bring you our list of the 20 best Indian YouTubers across various categories who are doing a tremendous job at making great content for our benefit.
1. Chef Ranveer
Even though we have several other cooking channels on the list, probably no other chef on YouTube can come close to the charming personality of Ranveer Brar. While the content he makes is pretty standard for a YouTube cooking channel, his way of talking makes his videos way more enjoyable than a regular recipe video. Ranveer also takes the time to brief the viewer about the background and history of the dishes he makes, which can be such an educational moment for those of us who are hungry for knowledge. Ranveer Brar is one of the best Indian Youtubers currently making content.

Do you ever find yourself wondering what happens inside your food while it’s cooking? Or have you ever felt like your culinary adventures feel a little like science experiments? Well, Bharatz Kitchen on YouTube has some answers for you. Even though Bharat’s cooking videos follow the same style as any other cooking channel, what’s unique about Bharatz Kitchen is Bharat’s scientific attitude towards cooking. Not only does he know which ingredient will make your dish better, he knows exactly why it will make your dish better, making most of his recipes pretty foolproof.

As much as we care about content, aesthetics matter too. And in that department, Bake With Shivesh wins big time. Not only are his recipes a dream to make, but Shivesh’s videos are also enchanting to watch as well. If you’re just beginning to bake, this channel can help you out with the basics. Not only that, Shivesh also has plenty of product recommendations for new bakers who want to stock up their kitchens.

Even though there is nothing out of the ordinary with Skinny Recipes by Nisa Homey, it is the only cooking channel I have so far come across that only post healthy recipes. If you’ve ever looked up a diet, you probably already know that Indian meals are loaded with carbs, and it can be tricky to lose weight while eating traditional Indian meals all day. Skinny Recipes provide a healthy twist to Indian dishes you know and love, making it easier to follow a diet without missing out on flavourful food.

5. Geeky Ranjit
When it comes to tech in India, Geeky Ranjit is OG. While many tech YouTubers may have come and gone so far, Ranjit has remained an active part of the YouTube tech community through all these years. The credit goes to the quality of the content he makes. Unlike other YouTubers who waste your precious minutes talking about random things you do not care about, Ranjit comes to the point faster than you can say his name. His videos are no-nonsense and straightforward, and above all, his opinion is trustworthy.

Like Ranjit, Ash from C4ETech is another OG when it comes to the Indian tech YouTube community. However, Ash doesn’t shy away from sharing his opinions in his videos, and his playful jibes at tech giants can be rather fun to watch. But more than anything, you can trust that he won’t recommend products that aren’t worth your money, and he will be blunt about things he doesn’t like in a product.

When it comes to make-up and beauty, Jovita George’s YouTube channel is something you must subscribe to if you want honest reviews and recommendations. Jovita doesn’t sugarcoat her words when it comes to critiquing a product, and her content is fairly entertaining to watch. Moreover, unlike many other people on the internet, Jovita, from her own experience, has recommendations for girls with darker skin tones – which is most Indian girls out there.

8. Shreya Jain
Like Jovita, Shreya also posts plenty of product recommendations and reviews on her YouTube channel. She also regularly posts make-up tutorials that are rather entertaining to watch. Additionally, Shreya’s girl-next-door personality and amicable way of talking will familiarise you with her in minutes.

9. Slayy Point
Remember the whole Binod episode on the internet? Well, it started here. Unlike many other YouTube channels known for comedic content, Slayy Point keeps its content clean and SFW. YouTube as a space (and the internet in general) can make you feel inadequate about how you look, but both Gautami and Abhyudaya look like any of us, making their content way more relatable. Moreover, their videos are crisp and their comedy is smart. When it comes to comedy, Abhyudaya, and Gautami are two of the best Indian YouTubers to watch out for.

10. Vedant Rusty
While commentary channels aren’t as popular in India as they are in other YouTube communities, we found Vedant Rusty’s videos binge-able and worth a recommendation. Vedant makes videos about other YouTubers – something not many are doing in India. His videos are well-paced and cleanly divided into different segments, and he analyses and comments on things that happen on the internet.

11. Only Desi
Even though Ankit doesn’t post as frequently as we wish he would, when he does, his videos are an absolute treat to watch. To put it as simply as possible, Only Desi on YouTube posts videos that analyze various memes-worthy Bollywood movies in the funniest way possible. The only way to get what we mean, and why we are so obsessed with Only Desi, you must head over to the YouTube channel right away!

While there are tonnes of YouTube channels that post reviews of movies and web shows, none of them come close to the well-informed and educated videos Anmol makes on his channel, Tried and Refused Productions. You’d find yourself watching Anmol’s videos even when you don’t care what movie it is about because his content is just that enjoyable. Anmol is easily one of the best Indian YouTubers when it comes to film reviews.

13. Lisa Mishra
Good music is hard to find these days. And what’s harder is finding artists who do not plaster autotune all over their songs to smoothen out their inadequacies. This is why Lisa Mishra’s plain, unedited videos of her singing with a guitar are a treat to watch. It transports you into a simpler, old-tiny world where you can be yourself. Moreover, Lisa has some serious vocal skills to boast of.
