Namaste Gayatri Garu,
Naa peru Sudha. I got married in
2007 october and moved to the US immediately. Before that I never
cooked regularly at home. I used to cook once in a blue moon! After I
came here I started cooking everyday, as me and my husband are both
against frozen or canned food and also against eating out often.
came accross your website, when I was searching for dosakaya mukkala
pachadi recipe and your website rocks!!!!! Awesome!!!. I told my mother
also about your website. I showed her this yesterday when I was
chatting. I just wanted to thank you for such a nice simple recipe.
good thing is all your recipes are so simple, healthy and most
importantly, exactly the way my mother would make them at home. One
more thing is I dont eat garlic myself and I feel your website is just
Thanks a lot for the great website.
