  1. Hi Dassana and Amit ,

    I am a food lover . I appreciate good food more than anything and I have to say that this is the best food blog i ve ever come across . i tend to browse a lot of food sites everyday but the idea of showing clear pictures for each step in your blog is simply amazing and even more helpful than the videos . i really hope that you guys open a restaurant near my city ( kolkata) . I am eager to taste your recipes that look so delicious.

    • thanks jasneet for this sweet feedback. glad to know that you loved the blog. keep visiting and make restaurant style food at home. cheaper, hygienic and healthy.

  2. Hi Dassana,

    I am your fan and a regular visitor of your blog. But from last one month(since you changed your blog)I could not comment on the specific dishes. Why it is happen ?? It’s quite irritating as if I want to ask something about that recipe and I could not ask or comment on that. I have raised this point couple of weeks before with my recipe question but I don’t know why ,my comment is no where

    • hi swati, i think i had replied. due to technical reasons we have closed the comments on most of the recipes, except the new ones. once the issue is solved, we will open the comments again.

    • Just discovered yor blog and love the practical, no nonsense way you set out your recipes and instructions .thank you from the desert of Oz. Kind regards and Om Shanti

      • welcome shosh

  3. Thanks for doing this site. I had 4 liters milk go bad and used the paneer from it to make your Malai Kofta recipe. My family (4 people) ate it up in one sitting, it was so good! The cornstarch held the koftas together – they usually break when I fry it.

    • thanks uttara for the feedback.

  4. Hi,
    I saw your post in which you posted the dal bhukhara recipe and I saw you mentioned that there were more recipes in a femina issue . Can you please share what year and month was the issue?
    Thank you

    • shivali, i don’t remember which month and which year issue it was. i had just taken the cut outs.

  5. Hi just browsing through your Maharashtrian vegetarian recipes brought back nostalgic memories of the wonderful food my mother used to cook back in Mumbai. I am not a great cook, but have been inspired by your website to try a few. Thank you.

    • welcome shubhi. nice to know that the recipes made you remember your mom’s cooking.

  6. hi there!
    i was just looking for some websites for easy recipes and i came across your’s,and its absolutely perfect. 😀 the details are amazing and so easy that even an amateur like me can be pro at cooking. 🙂 thanks and keep up the good work dude 🙂

    • welcome shruti and thanks for motivating me. nice to know that you liked the website.

  7. Your recipes and website get better & better – my husband does most of the curry making and has made me such wonderful meals, thank you. Will you ever or have you produced a book?

    • welcome lesley. thanks for motivating us with this positive feedback. not sure how to make a book…. so can’t say.

  8. Hi Dassani,

    Love your website. Frequent here very often – read, every day 🙂

    Just a request, the new look makes the website look very busy and distracting. It might be nice to have colors to distinguish content or should I say, get the readers focus to the content.

    Hope you don’t mind my comment.


    • thanks bhanu for your feedback. nice to have a feedback from a regular visitor. i guess its the first time you are commenting.
      even we don’t like the new look. its a new platform for us and we are learning things. probably by this week we will make the blog look better and pleasing to eyes. till then please bear with us.

      • Looks good!

  9. Thank you for the time and care you have put into this wonderful blog. I love food and am so happy to have found so many wonderful recipes, thoughtfully and clearly explained! I only cook vegetarian or vegan food and this is a great resource:)
    Kind regards Frances

    • welcome frances and thanks for writing these encouraging words.

  10. Hallo,
