Dear Vineetha
Thank you so much for visiting my blog and I am so happy that you are going to follow my blog.!!!
Sometimes back, I had picked up your fish fry recipe and made it. I never used fennel before, in fish fry. Thats why I was attracted. But I forgot to note down your site address. Today I suddenly saw the recipe and remembered. ha ha.Of course later I learnt many dishes from Kerala containing fennel.
I am amazed to see your great skills other than cooking.
Please publish more of your art works.
Let me see what all the great recipes you have for me. I will be visiting often to learn more recipes. This Baigana bharta is very nice especially the spices.
I have few recipes only, but you can try. Try Chicken 65.You certainly will like.
Merry Christmas and happy cooking
