SHUCHI- RUCHI kannada ECook Book

Ms. Nanda Ramesh, who left a comment here wanted to share a cook book her grandmother Ms. Seeta Bai had created. Ms. Nanda in her email to me writes as follows:

My granny used to say whatever we do should be to the good of the world. I will be very happy if more and more people make use of it and remember her. Even beginners can cook from her book.

I am truly truly humbled and blessed to see Ms. Nanda share this cook book with me and to share it with you all my extended family. I went through a couple of recipes, it is just awesome. A truly great treasure from a grandmother to her family and to us all.

Again, the cook book is in Kannada, if you know Kannada download the same. Ms. Nanda has mentioned they are working on an English translation.

Download the same and enjoy delicious, Madhwa recipes.

Thanks Nanda and our namaskaras to your Ajji. She will be remembered forever through this blog and the cookbook. Hope to meet you soon, Nanda.

    Thanks a ton for sharing this, thanks to Ms. Nanda also. I had received this copy around 10 years back in an email forward, somehow I lost it after few years. Searched for in Google but couldn’t get it. Very happy to get it back unexpectedly.

    Akka I am a silent reader in your blog from many months. Word “Thank You” is preety small to thank you for what you have been writing in your blog. Learning a lot from you and will be learning more from you as you keep posting.
    One request if you can post some of the recipes in english (as I cannot read kannada), whenever possible.

      Pramila, as and when I try the recipes, will post in English. For now, just hoping to get on my feet, so have not been cooking food at all since the past 6 weeks since the accident..
