  • Hi Maya,

    I made this yesterday.. I was delicious.. Great recipe. Thank you very much. I actually made it for 2 meals, but finished it in one meal itself 😛

  • Maya, I have been following your blog & trying out your recipes, that are almost as good as my mom’s…. I was hoping to get some of her recipes from her cook book; unfortunately, I could not find her book of recipes after her death. Please post recipes from Kerala, especially the authentic recipes from Central Kerala, which I miss terribly. Please post great fish & mutton recipes along with vegetable recipes, too; simple yet with accurate measurements, for amateur chefs like myself.

    Thanks again, Maya! All the BEST to you and your family!
