I have a few cookery books, most of which were received by me as gifts because my family and friends know how passionate I am about cooking. Though I prefer to follow my own collection of recipes from my family members and friends for my regular cooking, I go through the “health-conscious” recipes in these books from time to time and try them. I plan to post some of them in this thread. Quite a few of the ingredients given there are not easily available in Chennai. So, in a few recipes, I have taken the liberty of introducing a few changes in the ingredients and procedure. As far as possible, I want to give recipes from “good health” point of view. There will be few other interesting recipes also. I hope you will like them. If you like those recipes, the credit goes to the great chefs who have given us those recipes. Let this thread go uninterrupted, only with the recipes. Please continue to post your comments in the following thread only: http://www.indusladies.com/forums/ask-chitvish/776-chitvish-recipes-post-your-comments.html Wish me good luck, my friends - I am starting with great enthusiasm, to serve you better ! Love, Chithra.
