  15. Dear Shanthi Madam,

    I found your blog only recently. And, am so glad I did. My thaligai doesn't have the true iyengar flavor and sometimes I miss my Amma's thaligai a lot. Now, hopefully, I can try out some traditional iyengar recipes and get a taste of home (away from home).

    Thank you! Eagerly awaiting more....
