Hey like the way you put pictures in between preparation steps. Makes it much easier to understand.

The first thing I tried to cook in life was halwa and it came out awfully bad. Funny thing is I started to cook with my little sister without having any recipe. I was 14 and she was 11 then. :)

Kajal said...

Hi Priya,
Thank you for lovely words.
Bye for now.:)

Kajal said...

Hi Mumbai guy,
Thanks for appreciating me with your nice words. I start blog for feed a hungry child campaign of mydhaba; I think that if any teenagers want to cook what an easier way to cook? So I start take each photo to make any recipe so that even if anyone have basic knowledge of cooking than they can cook any item from my blog. Thanks for reply. You start to learn cooking with delicious dish. I like it.
Have a good day.
