Shri N Narayana Swamy Esq. started his career with the Government of Mysore as a Sanitary Inspector in May 1921 at Chitraldroog District Treasury and his work took him to Bhadravathi, Sosale in T.Narsipur Taluk and then to Kalkunte Agrahara, Hosakote Taluk. During his Government service he interacted with several Mysore Government officials, British Officials and got an opportunity to meet with  H.H. Nalwadi Krishnaraja Wadiyar, the Maharaja of Mysore during his work at the Bhadravathi Steel Plant in Bhadravati Taluk Shivamogga.

He later was appointed as Esquire(ESQ.) Before 1947, the term esquire was used by senior officers of the Indian Civil Service and other members of the government.

Esquire abbreviated Esq in the United Kingdom, historically was a title of respect accorded to men of higher social rank, particularly members of the landed gentry. This title was limited to those only who bear an office of trust under the Crown and who are styled esquires by the king in their commissions and appointments.

After these assignments he dedicated the later Years of his Life till he lived in the Service of Lord Prasanna Krishnaswamy in Tulasivanam, Balepet, Bangalore to follow his calling & passion.

Some of his most loved preparations were Chiroti, Sweet Pongal, Kadale Mithai (Peanut Ladoo) Puliogare and Curd Rice . Hence he was also invited by many Rao Bahadur’s & Diwan’s to cook for their Pooja Functions. Hearing from his Diwans and R.B’s H.H Jayachamaraja Wadiyar, The Maharaja of Mysore invited him to cook Chiroti at the Palace and thus became famous as Chiroti Narayana Iyengar.
