    Hi Dassana, I am glad I accidental stumbled on to your website, while looking for different veg recipes. I have tried many and must say they come out the way you present it. I am getting very addictive to vegetarian cooking (having been a non vegetarian all my life). I thank you for sharing your recipes and look forward to trying many more. You have inspired me towards eating more veg. my favourite one is Three Dal Dosa, & Dal Makhani. Continue your inspired cooking.

    Hai dassanna,
    I like yr website. Next month is my daughter`s 5th birth day. I planned to prepare around 50 eggless cupcakes and garlic rolls. Cupcakes using oil and butter frosting. Party will be evening 6o clock. Pls. Tell me whether I can prepare these items a day before. It will stay good or not.

    • says

      thanks suja. cupcakes will stay good in the refrigerator. garlic rolls have to be had fresh. if you refrigerate the garlic rolls then the butter soldifies and you have to again microwave it for few seconds. my suggestion is to have garlic rolls fresh to have the best taste. microwaving the dish can also ruin the texture.

    Hi Dassana,
    I love your website – “”.
    I have learnt a lot from you. You recipes are simple and all the ingredients are readily available.
    The best part about you is the way you educate the science of cooking! The pictures give a clear indication of when to add spices etc.

    I am fond of cooking. Whenever I find time during my work hours, I take a sneak peak into veg recipes and end up learning something new instantaneously.

    I can share some good Sindhi recipes with you if you wish to try.

    Thank you,
    Jaya Vanjani

    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?

    • says

      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!!


    • says

      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.

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.

    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…

    • says

      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.

  16. gabriele says

    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

    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.

    • says

      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.
