Dear Rajani,
I visited your blog first time yesterday but I could not leave a comment as I was in a hurry. I just bookmarked your blog and left. Today I was so happy to see you in my blog. You have a good collection of recipes. I read that you are a student...It's really great. When I was a student I never entered the kitchen. You are too good.

Madhavi said...

I tried the pachadi. But 5 tsp dhania made it very bitter, and I had to add lots of tamarind to reduce the bitterness.

Rajani Rayudu said...

Hi Madhavi,

Are you sure you tried with coriander not with the Italian parsley some time they look the same.

Any how in the end trail and error makes wonders.

cheers
