Started collecting recipes from age 10! .....And Now...To share them, I "quote" .............. Some traditional and quaint recipes on Kerala / Anglo- Indian Cuisine.
Somethings from Portugal, and yet others Malabari, with distinct Arabic leanings. Yes, also authentic South-Indian stuff collected studiously from some very interesting people.
Look forward to contributions of similar genre and comments or reactions.
