Hi Kanchana,

Good to know that you are following traditional things like Karadaya Noombu etc, you recipes and food reminds me of home and mom's cooking, yummy i am feeling hungry now...

One thing that I find sheer amazing.. how indians flaunt they are canadians, americans, etc when they know they are brown skin not allowed to mix up with elite white people.
Moreover, how these indian women who wear attire in a gawdy manner like huge nose rings not pins, etc. and then claim they are canadians rather than indians.
My brother is a director in a Swiss bank in NY and he always lives in Manhattan and never mixed with brown people. But still he says there is this rift when you come across elite white native people.

food for thought, right !

Hi Kanchana,
Excellent attempt at sharing your cooking experience on the world wide web. even though the recipes are ones learnt from mom and mom-in-law your presentation makes them so interesting. I am getting inspired looking at all your recipes. going to definitely try all of them, esp the cabbage kofta that you have recently posted. I have only heard and had raddish kotfa or malai kotfa. this one will sure be equally mouth-watering :). Great Job!!!

Wonderful site.

Your wedding pics reminded me of mine - I had the same temple jewelry - nothing to beat it. I'm taking a wild guess you are iyengar..your husband's wedding pic dhristi pottu kinds of gives it away. I'm iyengar too - and hence guessing!

Keep up the great blogging!
