    sure priya....i"ll help you...tell what you to learn....actually before marriage i do't know how to make sambar rasam....but after marriage i bstarted cooking but no one helped....i'm blessed with a one thing that is if i smell or taste a particular item i can tell what r the items added in that dish.i started by trial and error method now i learned almost all the items ....including continental items...
    and i'm the recipe book for my friends and relatives....if you want to do master in cooking you need
    1. interest in learning items
    2.creativity
    3.trial

    hello priya,

    its good to know that you are very much interested in cooking. Before marriage, even i dont know how to cook, being a only girl i am never allowed to cook. but after marriage i started cooking simple dishs and later on i became expert in traditional cooking. My mother never believed that i cooked for 15 members at a time.

    I believe that every women have some basic knowledge about cooking, as we meant for it. there are so many websites (like sulekha), which teaches you, from basic cooking to regional wise and continental wise. Also if you happened to taste any delicious food, never forget to ask recipe from your friends, that way i learned some cooking.

    i am sure that you are going tobe a good chef:cheers

    kanmani.

    there are 2,3 ways to make more kullambu....i'm also a tamilian..i do both tamil and kerela style...

    more kulambu 1:( for 2)

    grind coconut grated for about 1/4 to 1/2 cup
    little jeera
    garlic 1 or 2 clove or little ginger (what ever you want u can add)
    green chilli to taste
    turmeric (optional)

    method:
    add little water and boil it well.switch off the stove.allow to cool.add thick more(butter milk).salt.
    pour seasoning over it

    for seasoning:
    oil
