    My life time ambition of publishing a Cookery Book, consolidating my learning and practicing experience in culinary practices has now been fulfilled by publication of my book: “RECIPIES FROM MACH’S KITCHEN” by the prestigious publishers : M/S Vikatan Books, Chennai.

    The book encompasses 132 recipies , fully illustrated with impress colour photographs. Recipies include sweets, salads, soups, rice dishes, side dishes, gravies , payasam, pachadi, thugayal, chutney, tiffin varieties, pickles and wound up with Deepavali Legium !

    The idea of writing this book dawned in my mind after watching the present generation youngsters who live abroad or <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:place w:st="on"><st1:country-region w:st="on">India</st1:country-region></st1:place>, away from their parents and longing to taste traditional food, prepared by their own efforts.

    Let me have the pleasure of inviting you to peruse this publication, practice the recipies you are not familiar with and offer your valuable comments.

    I am happy to state that this is the FIRST English language book on cookery, published by the reputed M/S Vikatan Books, Chennai.

    Dear Mach,

    How nice to see you back again posting in IL! Still remember the lovely pictures you had drawn. Great to know about your cookery book. Will surely get a copy and wait for the day to get it autographed by you. And all prayers for the book to reach many.
