    Thanks, Lakshmi.
    I was offline for just 2 days!
    The S by S thread recipe for gulab jamun is my latest & follow it verbatim.
    The other is an old recipe.
    Wish you gulab jamun success! :)
    Love,
    Chithra.

    Dear Chitvish,

    Very nice to read that Thanu's wedding went on well. Please pass on my wishes to Thanu.

    This message is to appreciate Varloo for preparing bun which was really nice and professional too....Varloo told that she made bun and it is good, but I was really surprised when I saw the bun which had a very good look as well as taste. Let me thank you too for the recipe. Excellent...

    Regards,
    Archana.

    Dear Shyamala,
    First, I received your PM. I still have not found time to reply you!. Sorry.
    It was a very pleasant surprise to meet you in Nuts n Spices! You look very sweet & pleasant!
    Suraabi must be suffering with measles, all the more because the weather is so hot:-(
    Look after yourself & the child. You can have a "postponed" celebration when you get back to normal.
    My regards to Shiva.
    Love,
    Chithra.

    Hello Mami,
    Glad to know the wedding went off very well. You were sorely missed in the forum :) Loved your description of the wedding in detail, and the menu was yum!

    Made several items over the last few days. I tried your technique for the perfect rava upma and it was super. I have never tried it before, as I get uthir uthir upma normally following the usual technique. This time though, I had bought a pack of rava here and the quality of rava was horrible. Too fine and was not taking even 1.5 cups water! So hunted down your technique and tried it and the result was much better. Usually I boil water first and then add rava, so roasting rava even though it is pre-roasted was new and produced great results :)

    Made pineapple-ginger-orange-grapes juice couple of times, then watermelon delite, mango lassi etc.

    Made veg kurma with jeera rice couple of days back, and for the remaining kurma, made puris the next day. It turned out awesome as usual.

    This morning breakfast was makkai ka dhokla. It was terrific. Absolutely delicious recipe, even better than peas dhokla. Adding corn kernels gave such a nice feel to the recipe. We gorged on it!

    My lil one turns three on Monday, and I am planning to make some sweet apart from payasam etc. Will let you know how it goes :)

    Cheers,
    Nithya

    Mathashri,
    Thank you so much for replying to all my posts.

    Well i made a small uthappam only, but couldnt have more than 1.

    No it was not my anniversary... The think is I come back from office at 9:30 pm and after that have to cook dinner. So these kind of things are the only things to motivate me to cook at that hour when most would be deep in slumber! If I were just doing routine stuff, I guess I will loose interest and hence food will be horrible. But these simple but interesting things make both of us have a smile on the face after a long hard day. But ofcourse, ideas from all your photos and forums, nothing less!

    Yesterday I made vegeterian omelete. The colour, texture was exactly like an egg omelet and taste was superb too. We enjoyed it, along with extra spicy tomato rasam and rice.
