  15. You are a star....

    this is a dialogue my client pass on me when he see his work completed in time and according to his expectations.

    You know why I called you a star... thats because you made the ladoos that I was expecting from long...

    And that from moongdal is new to me and my taste buds.

    I have tried to prepare moongdal payasam tomorrow so will keep this for next weekend.
