  1. Dear madam,

    I use to follow your methods when I was in NJ and it continued even after in chennai where I get very less time to spend in kitchen one reason my mom doesn’t allow me. I use to make exceptions in the recent months and have made few things for my kids and trust me they loved all those I made. This includes baby corn fry with sambar powder the most liked one for my daughter tejaswini and have tried the same with different soft veg like brinjal and ladies finger all came real we’ll next is this moong soup which our entire family liked including my 2 years old son he had a full bowl of soup and my mom loved it too. On this note i would like to pass on my heart full of thanks and appreciation to you for sharing. Hats off to you and pls keep sending us more recipes.

    By the way I forgot to tell you the moong soup was too too awesome and pretty simple too. I haven’t took any snap but will do in future.
