Hi Preethi! Superb blog you have here, God bless you! What a treat to browse. My mother, my grandmother were both fabulous cooks and spoilt the family silly with great food. I really look forward to visiting often.

Hugs...I am real glad I logged into facebook today! Just yesterday, I was contemplating trying to make "more kali" in the microwave...and it was like seeing a sign when I saw the facebook update :-) Any excuse to make more kali!!
