  8. Wow! You are so creative! I want to give a try… But, it’s almost a year we bought noodles 😦 We stopped having noodles as we read over internet about the wax coating. What’s your opinion about this Chitra? Do we get any superior quality noodles in the market? I think, I am the one who troubles you very much 😀

    eager to know your opinion…


    • Sindhu – even I heard about noodles…but this may be true for local manfuctures..However started using Spaghetti these days as an alternative…Check if you get them at your place where there is a brown Spaghetti for a healthy option. I am working on steamed cake and will be posted shortly…..I am glad you enable me to think..Look forward to your interactive feedback
