Newly married and away from India this book is her experiences and experiments well compiled.

The book began with my favorite sabudana Wada and batata Wada. All the recipes are simple to make and with awesome images. Simple to follow steps in all the recipes, along with some nice tempting pictures its a great read. Each and every recipe is a treat for eyes as well as taste.
