I am so excited to have found your website. There are so many recipes I cannot wait to try. Perhaps I have overlooked, but is there a way to print more than a single recipe at a time?


dassana amit March 7, 2014 2

thanks. there is no way to print more than one recipe at a time. its difficult to implement such features on a blog and needs lot of techie stuff to be managed and done.

Hi Dassana,
I would first like to thank you for all the effort taken by you to maintain this informative site and to guide us for any cooking related queries.I have tried a few recipes from your site and they came out to be really well.
It would be of great help if you could post the recipe of the South Indian sweet ‘ mysurpa/ mysorepak’ ( Sri Krishna sweet shop style).
Thanks in advance!!



dassana amit February 25, 2014 4

thanks neha. i did try mysore pak but both times they did not come out well. i want to make a hassle free version and yet one that is soft. the recipe is in my to do list. i will have to know about the sri krishna shop style. since i have had mysore pak from mysore itself, will be making that version which is soft and melt in mouth version.

Hi Dassana!
How are you? I am seeing your blog for a few days. and I am sure this is the first blog of this type. I mean each recipe are so much taken care of by you as if somebody takes care of a child. Such a great blog! Step by step explanations plus so many nice photographs. Even those, who don’t like to cook, they will also love to cook by seeing your recipes. Really good job.. Keep it up. A good work pays off.

The Pinterest link for European-Style Potato Salad With Sour Cream Dill Dressing lead to this page but I can’t find the recipe, any suggestions on how to find it?


dassana December 1, 2013 8

i don’t have this recipe on the blog. i guess the pinterest is wrongly linking to the blog.

PADMAVATHI August 25, 2013 19

Hi Dasanna,
Thanks for a wonderful website. I keep trying to make wholewheat bread , but my bread becomes dense or not so properly cooked in the centre though there is good enough browning on the top side. Shoul I use some specific ratio of maida with whole wheat atta to get a perfect bread?
Can’t I make a good bread only using whole wheat without maida(white flour)?
Pls guide me…


dassana August 30, 2013 20

padmavathi, the temperature must be very high in your oven therefore the bread is becoming brown but not cooking from the center. regarding denseness whole wheat bread are usually dense. a few things you can try to make it less dense… either add half cup of maida (all purpose flour) to the wheat flour (approx 1.5 to 2 cups). another thing is make the dough moist and sticky. even adding a little extra amount of water to the dough makes the bread soft.


gabriele August 20, 2013 21

you should have a search button within the site. I couldn’t find a jaipur vegetables recipe, although I am sure you have one on the site.
thanks, gabriele


dassana August 20, 2013 22

the search button is already there. its on right hand side bar on the top. jaipuri vegetable recipe is not posted on the blog yet.

How should i make tandoori mushroom? I have electric tandoor. I wish to make mushrooms as starters. I want it to be spicy
Thank you.


dassana June 10, 2013 26

marinate the mushrooms with the tandoori marinade and then cook them in the tandoor. you can use these recipes as a base for the making the marinade. use in approximation with the quantity of mushrooms you have. use thick curd or drain the whey of the curd by straining it in a muslin cloth for some hours or overnight.

1: tandoori gobi –
2: tandoori aloo –

How can we make fresh cream at home dassana. Wanted the recipe for the Eggless
pineapple cake. This recipe is available at many sites but the thing is when it some recipe comes from you, it will sure be trial n tested well. So, good results are for sure.


dassana April 30, 2012 53

this is what i would do to make fresh cream at home.

collect the top layer of the malai from the milk once the milk is boiled in a bowl. keep in the freezer. keep on collecting the malai for say 6-7 days or more till you get a good quantity of cream. remember always to keep in the freezer once you have added the malai.

when you want to make cream for icings, remove the bowl of the frozen cream. let it be for 15 minutes or more at room temperature. with a hand blender or in a blender jar blend the malai. when it comes to a stage when you see peaks of thick soft cream, stop the blender. you can now use this cream for your icings. don’t overdo the blending as this may result in butter formation from the cream.

you can also keep the bowl beneath a larger bowl or pan full of ice cubes and beat the cream with a hand blender.

thanks for the positive comments also shipra. i too love pineapple cake.


shipra pande April 10, 2012 54
