The best cook in the world for everyone is their Mother. Both my mother and her sister are excellent cooks. This Blog was created to keep a record of the traditional family recipes for the future generation. However now it also features my own creations and recipes requested from my readers.
If I am a Good cook today, all the credit goes to my mom who is a super cook and my mom’s sister, who i fondly call "Periamma", is an excellent cook too, Even the simplest of dishes they make is mouth watering and irresistible. Their caustic comments has shaped me into a good cook.
