  1. Dear Chitra I really love your Blogg and look forward to recieving your recipes.

    I would like to offer a little advise given to me many years ago by a food editor. It was when writing recipes to list the ingredients in the order which they are used as it makes it much easier when preparing the recipe. I found it really useful advise and of course logical.

    Looking forward to your next recipe blogg.

    Keep up the great work, warmest regards Jayasri
