Most of the dishes that is prepared at home was learnt by merely watching my mom and aunt doing the home tasks. Actually about two decades back there was less opportunity to watch cooking shows on Television. Now with the zoom of technology and several channels emerging on television you get to see several chefs and in case you missed the schedule, you can watch the same recipe thru’ a video or blog.

This opportunity was not there then. However we made use of our memory or at the most write down the recipe for future reference. I still continue that practice of jotting down in the Recipes diary.

Let’s move on to the recipe and understand the requirements.
