  1. Hi Dassana,
    Thank you so much for adding Thaleepeeth receipe.I always thought why you never added this receipe, Trust me even yesterday I thought the same.

    • Welcome Vaishali. It was in my mind also for a long time. But you know Indian cuisine is so big to cover, So some good recipes are still not on the blog.
