  1. hello,
    Is there a Chaat masala recipe on the website?list a
    I could be mis-remembering. But I thought I recalled one. Regardless, a section that lists all your spice powder/masala recipes would be greatly appreciated.

    Regards,

    Richard

  2. Thanks as always for a great recipe and all your hard work. I am going to try this soon, my wife loves samosa chaat 🙂

    For years I have always come to your website to try new recipes and to try to recreate dishes I remember from my childhood.

    I just have to say though, I don’t know when exactly you made the recent change to your website — it looks beautiful, but it has this very disturbing side effect that I can’t highlight or copy any text unless I use the “Print” button to get a printer-friendly page. And on that page it does not show the pictures or even your beautiful introductions that you write at the beginning of the page.

    The reason this can be a bit annoying is because sometimes I like to copy and paste some names of spices or things that I don’t recognize to search in Google for what they are.

    Also for some reason, the new website breaks the shortcut for searching the text on the page (Ctrl + F) and I have to manually use the mouse and go to the menu to do it.

    At the end of the day, it is not such a big deal, just a bit annoying as I keep forgetting that it doesn’t work and trying to copy something. Just wanted to offer some constructive feedback.

    I love the work you both do, and very grateful that you share your insights and recipes with us! Thank you so much!

    1. Welcome Udi. Thanks for sharing your positive feedback on recipes and also for your constructive feedback. We have disabled copying or selecting the content or right click. We agree that it is troublesome for some readers. However, if we don’t do it then many people copy our content to make websites which are exact replica of this website. Many people have made Apps, Ebooks also. So lot of time gets wasted in contacting these people and asking them to remove our copied content. Sometimes these copied sites even compete with us in google search result. So we decided to disable the content copying and use that time to produce more recipes.
