    Ho so kind of you.

    Dear Ms. Prasanna,

    Where are you? I am in chennai. I am very very happy that I can share my recipes with other people. For that I will thank Ms. Malathy who is the Founder of this web site. After my marriage I left Chennai and settled with my husband and 6 months old son, with out anybody's help in Secondrabad. From that I am roamming India and now I am shuttleing between India and Saudi Arabia. So I know the pain of living far away from our people.

    So as soon as I came to know about this site, I registered immediately and my husband also registered in this, to see my progress. I am also having one own web site for cooking because of my son. He opened one site for me. That is helping my husband, my son, my in laws and my in laws sons who are alone in Australia and Bahrain.

    Dont worry I will keep posting.
    Bye,
    Krishna amma

    hi,

    Hi Rosy,

    I saw your mail. For Rasam powder and Sambar powder we are using raw ingredients. For all other powders we have to fry. I think I mentioned in my recipe it self. Is it not?:-D
