  2. Hi arthi. .wonderful Bolg. Excellent work.keep going.step by step photos makes this site excellent.

  3. Looks delicious Aarthi! I love beets so I can't wait to try this one. :-) Please don't ever feel bad about posting the simple recipes. For myself, and for others who live in other countries, sometimes we have never seen or tried these preparations, so even a simple recipe is new and interesting to us! I also have a request... can you please keep posting a photo of all your ingredients together? This is very helpful for me cooking in America, because sometimes our foods (like onions and tomatoes, for instance) are much larger than they are in India. When I prepare your recipes, I always look at your ingredient photo first, to make sure I am using the correct amount of each vegetable. Thank you so much for all your wonderful recipes and your step-by-step instructions and photos! My husband is from Tamil Nadu, and you help me to put delicious meals on the table that he loves :-)

  4. I second what ktsue said up there. Don't hesitate to post the basic recipes. I'm always interested to see what other people have for their meals every day, it gives me inspiration.

  5. Thanks for posting! Can I feed this to my 13 month old if I go easy on the chilli powder?
