Priya : What’s your family’s most favorite recipe which you cook. Pls share with the link if you had posted in blog.
Sangeetha : Ven Pongal + Methu Vadai (http://recipeexcavator.blogspot.in/2011/10/urad-dhall-vadai-or-ulunthu-vadai.html)
Priya : Can you share us about your first cooking experience and the recipe which you tried first?
Sangeetha : You can check this link for my elaborate experience note.
Priya : Please share some kitchen tips or secrets of yours..
a. If your pressure cooker gives any trouble like water/pressure leakage after closing it place ur gasket in freezer for the whole day and use, u can find the difference.
b. Whenever we buy some steel plates or any steel cookwares, you find a brand label, when we try to remove it surely it will have gum stain or we couldn’t peel the label properly. To overcome that problem, show it in the flame (Bottom of the label) for a while, it will automatically get peeled off ! Interesting is it !! This applies only for STEEL OR BRASS product…
I have many but once these two got flashed immediately Priya :)
Priya : What do you like in my blog and please share your suggestions to improve mine.
Sangeetha : Priya, I like your blog completely. The way you presented and aligned the posts. Its looks neat and If am in need of any recipes, I can easily indentify the section and I can grab it.
