Thank you Anasooya Aunty!

Had to take a little longer sabattical from usual food blogging. I could not cook anything at home worth to be posted here at My Dhaba after being relocated to Nagpur, the Orange City, in India.

Most recently we had been to Nandyal, Indira's home town, to witness the FAHC's new unit's inaugural event. The above picture is of Mahanandi temple at Nandyal. FAHC-Nandyal unit began to support 10 children wef February 2008. FAHC now supports a total of 24 children with this addition. More news and details of the event will be posted here on a later date and also at

Let me also share with you a few food pictures taken at Nandyal. Mrs. S Anasooya Devi aunty, the mother-in-law of Indira of Mahanandi food blog, cooked several Andhra delicacies for my family. Thank you dear Anasooya Aunty for such a sumptuous spread of homely food treat and also for all other kind hospitalities during our stay at Nandyal.

Clockwise: the poori platter, thick mutton curry, jeera rice, sambhar, spicy chicken curry, and cabbage palya. Then there were sweets, fruits, rasam, mor kolumbu, etc. You get heavenly foods only at traditional homes! We used to have a similar family meal every day no matter what activities we had on the go. All were dutybound to come home for simple dinner together.

FAHC's first anniversary falls on April 17. A host of events are planned to participate the children and their families. FAHC is making really good progress. Clearly there's a lot more to come. Thanks for your prayers and support. More later.

I think I am going to love your blog. I love Indian food and I enjoy cooking it. I just don't have enough instruction even though I have good cookbooks. It just isn't the same as info coming straight from the heart. I found your makhani chicken recipe and that brought me here. I am planning on making it very soon.
