  1. Hi Hetal & Anuja:
    Sahib Jee

    Just a comment (Constructive)

    You might want to make an exclusive section for Recipes submitted by members / whoever

    It is a tad disconcerting when calling up a recipe only to be told that it was submitted by someone and no Video to boot…..Frankly I did not find any NICE recipes submitted by WANNA.BEES

    Preserving your recipes in sections BELONGING to “HETAL & ANUJA” would be much more desirable

    But then “Who am I to say anything….Hamari Baat to Waisay bhi koi suntaa nahin”

    Keep up the good work


    1. Hi Jagmohan,

      Thank you for your constructive comment :). The user submitted recipes are from years ago when we were trying something new. We have not had those for years now. Unfortunately, they have been indexed by the search engines and if we delete them now, the users will get an error. Its better if they find our site and see all the great recipes and videos that we do have :).

  2. i would like to see different types of prawn curry and prawn pulao.
    being a vegetarian while cooking prawn how do i make out if the prawns are done.

    1. Let me take this opportunity to shed some light

      1. Why are you cooking Prawns if you are a vegetarian?
      2. If Mian-jee wants to eat prawns, LET him TAKE YOU OUT TO A Chinese Resturant
      – Dharam Kuun BHRUSHT KARNA HAI?

      Jokes aside…Prawns are averse to HEAT…Notice they turn PINK / RED almost as soon as they are put in PAN

      I think you mean SHRIMPS (Out here, one rarely gets PRAWNS)

      Shrimps CURL UP while they are being fried.

      Shrimps CAN BE EATEN RAW….So why bother cooking them

      IF you must cook them, Saute’ them for a COUPLE OF MINUTES

      Sorry HETAL and ANUJA
      Did I steal your thunder?

      Pardonne Moi Mon Cheri
