Happy New Year

Wish you all a very happy, prosperous and peaceful new year.


Thanks to you all for your kind support here. Aayi and I have tried our best to keep this place going in 2008.

Recently, we have been having many technical problems with the site and we are trying our best to resolve them. I hope we can get around them soon.


Looks like new year is going to be a bit hectic for us, but we will surely try our best to post something here whenever possible.

  8. Hi Shilpa!
    Happy New Year to you and your family too! I made ur eggless fruit cake again for New Years and reduced the spice content. Turned out amazing. My dad for one, who hates cakes because of eggs in them, loves it now. He runs around telling his co-workers about the amazing cakes I make, and they have been pestering him for the recipes. All the credit goes to u!
    Keep up the good work, and have an amazing year ahead!

  13. I’ve been born and brought up in Pune and ‘Sabudana khichdi’ has been one of my all time favorite snacks.
    The tips for soaking the ‘sago’ before preparation sounded a little different from the practicised procedure at our home. I’ shared the information with my wife and now we’ll use the technique suggested and let you know the results. We’re far away from home, in Beijing,China and finding ‘sago’ here was the first challenge, but finally we did find a store. The grains are much finer than the ones we’re used to in India and using our previous soaking technique made the ‘khichdi’ very clumpy and rubbery. We’ll try your technique.

    Happy New Year !!
