Dear Kajal,
Thanks for all your efforts and time. I really appreciate it and I'm sure others too! I tried emailing on but it bounces.
At times when I'm out of ideas and think humm... what to cook today, I open your blog and pick a dish. I also like how you make effort to put healthy drinks. I'm also very conscious of giving my kids best nutrition. There are lot of indian food blogs but I grew up eating gujarathi food everyday and I want to pass our culture to my kids, your recipes are great help for me.
