  1. Dear Mugdha
    How are you? Thanks for your nice comment at my blog. I was travelling a lot to Bangalore, Gujarat and to ..guess where? to Athgarh, Cuttack and Bhubaneswar. It was a trip to Orissa after many decades. Ate only Pitha , chakuli, santula, dalma for b-fast, lunch and dinner. My friends and their husbands/wives got bored feeding me only pitha all the time. I got some Haldi patra, but the enduri here was a great disaster. I know where I did the mistake,,will do it correctly next time.
    I like this dahi baigana recipe. Never tried garlic and onion, will try. In fact I made Dahi Vendi yesterday. But nothing to match dahi baigana
    So you have shifted out of Gurgaon , I can see in your profile. :-)
    Let me see what all the great dishes I have missed here .
