    Sailu, your stomach is happy and I am as well. I am not a big fan of idlis and prefer to spice them up. Thanks for the recipe.

    Big fan of your work!! Can you (some time in future) please post a photo tutorial on making Rasgullas. I live in the US and hate store bought Rasgullas. I know there are like a million recipes on the web, but somehow I’d rather do it your way :) I’ve never cooked all my life, and now, thanks to you and a couple of other blogs, I’m branded a ‘natural cook’. Keep up the amazing work.

    Lots of love,
    Sapna.
