  15. All that I have and all that I need...

    I said these words about Priyas Jeera Aloo recipe. :)

    This is really a simple to prepare and easily consumable dish. I can imagine the taste and the usage as I have tried it before, but yours look different and better.

    See you should not be on 7th heavens after my opinion, I meant they appear delicious, still the question is... have I tasted it?

    I was discussing with different people and also think should discuss this with you.

    Why don't we give a request to the former microsoft chef... sorry chief Bill gates for developing a software that could enable computer users to smell and taste dishes prepared in the internet.

    What do you think?

    Isnt this a creative suggestion...?

    What to do... you see I am always creative...
