my experiences in cooking.

A long standing desire of mine is to start a mess and give good food to people. But my wish is still in the dream section.

I have lot of ideas as how to prepare food, how to give it neatly and healthily. So I have decided to start a web page to deliver my long standing menu items.

Most of the items may not be new to you. But it definitely tastes better.

The dishes are not invented by me, but noted down by me from many cook books magazines, from elders etc.

Hope you have a wonderful time in preparing the best dishes.

The dishes are simple, vegetarian and surely it will earn everyone's appreciation.
