  1. Hi Hetal and Anuja,

    This is a great tip thank you so much.
    I will be glad, if you guys give the tip for “Difference of Daals”….there are so many daals couldn’t find difference

    Thanks and Regards,

  2. Hi Hetal and Anuja, Let me begin by congratulating you for your great blog. You guys are the best!!
    I was recently introduced to the idea of once a month cooking, but could not find any material on it from Indian cooking perspective. Can you tell us, what you think about it?

    1. Hi Sandip,

      hmmm…we have heard of once a week cooking but not once a month. Many Indian curries freeze well, so I am guessing that would work. You would just make a big batch and freeze them in smaller containers so you are not thawing, reheating the whole batch everytime. Be sure to label everything with the contents and the date.

  3. This tip was very useful to us on Ganesh Chathurthi day for making modak! We needed fine sooji, ended up using the coarse one and it didn’t work. At last I remembered your tip and modak came out very well! Thanks

    Happy belated Ganesh Chathurthi to both of you! It would have been nice if you guys had shown some sweet during that time.

  4. Hi Hital and Anuja,

    Though you both havent won the competition, but have indeed won the hearts of many families by sharing tasty recipes. You both are “cream of the crop.”

  5. Hello dear,

    You are have changed so many of your viewers life and we all respect you both a lot….keeping hope for coming year lets move on and we all are with you.


  6. Hi Hetal and Anuja,

    I feel so sorry but may be there is something good behind it who knows?
    But you guys r on rock. thanks for giving good and healthy receipes.

  7. hie hetal and anuja…
    tried out the methi malai mattar and the egg curry…both were great….
    I need a tip from you as to how to store red potatoes…how ever i store them they get spoilt and produce such a foul odour…

    1. Hi Asha,

      That happens to me when I store potatoes in a closed bag. Keep them in the open out from the bag once you get them from the store. They stay much longer that way.

      Hope that helps.

  8. win or no win, We all love u very much and appreciate your work, what matters is that “ye public hai sub janti hai”
    thanks a lot!

  9. Excellent tip! So is this all they do before selling in the shop? Just same source, one ground coarsely and the other one finely? Do they do any extra processing for the fine sooji at the shop?
    I hardly find fine sooji at our place and felt that I always missed it during festivals. If powdering coarse sooji works the same, then great!
    Thanks for the tip.

  10. Hey Hetal and Anuja,

  12. Hey Hetal & Anuja,

    So what, if you did not win the challenge? As everyone said, you’ve already won our hearts!

    And there is still 2011, so better luck next time! Love you both and your work!!

    Wish you all the best for your future endeavors…Neha

  13. Hello,

    I am sorry to hear about the challenge. But let’s look at it this way – ‘Whatever happens, happens for good’. I am sure something even better is waiting for you!

    We all appreciate your work. And you have already won our hearts :-).

  14. When I noticed it was the 24th, I frantically logged into the Food Network site to see if “we” had indeed won, but instead saw John’s name listed (who was pretty good as well). Considering your excellent presentation, I’m sure you all landed at least a second or third place. Congrats on stepping out there and bring South Asia cooking into the spotlight. I’m sure the SMTC community will be expanding from all of the recent attention. Thanks for allowing me to take part!

    So what’s for dinner this week?!

    Sherry, NC
