A pictographic journal of my tried, tested & appreciated recipes


Thank you. After long time you've visited my journal:) Use red chili powder up to your test. Anupji has given you the right direction

Thank you very much!

Purbasha, thanks for the invite :grin: I will not let go of this opportunity. However, nothing matches the taste of your food and the style of your presentation :)

Here you go... We enjoyed every moment of the four days - rare long-weekend with our home full of aroma of food and flowers for the festival... thanks to your telephonic tech-support :grin: I am sure BSNL would have made a neat sum over these 4 days ;)
