  27. Happy birthday, Mahanandi! (what did you get for a birthday treat? ;) ) I’m glad I stumbled upon this blog two years ago, while searching for an aadai recipe. I still come here nearly every day! I like the community that has grown around Mahanandi, through events like Jihva, guest posts, occasional cat photos, the occasional political or cultural commentary, the “artisan food” charitable project, and visitors’ comments. Congratulations, Indira, for your wonderful achievement, and thanks for sharing this delightful journey with us. God bless, and many happy returns.

Thank you for posting innovative recipes, with healthy fresh ingredients. Thanks to you, I now try to shop for vegetables other than the usual potatoes/carrots/eggplants/green beans.

  64. Hi Indira,

    I have been a silent observer and student for the past 2 years. Your thoughtful writing and deep respect for our homeland and amazing recipes are what keep me coming everyday. I can always count on Mahanandi everytime I need a recipe. (Even my mom was blown away when we tried your ubbattu/poli recipe and the proportion to dough and filling was perfect and your quantities were so meticulously perfect that we didnt end up with any extra dough or filling.)I admire the thought and dedication that goes into every post, and reading it makes me realize how much you enjoy typing up each word. I don’t know the English word for it, but in tamil it’s called “rasanai” - and nobody comes close to you. I have noticed you’ve had your share of trials and troubles. You’d think what problems can come to someone who does nothing but spread goodness around. But I guess that’s how the world is. You have taken it all in stride and kept going. That makes me admire you more!! Love you girl, keep your passionate writing and recipes coming. And Vijay, what an adorable supportive husband. Congratulations to both of you on the milestone. Don’t ever stop this!!

    Comment by Suha — March 26, 2008 @ 9:47 pm

  92. Hi Indira,

    Your blog is superb no other words for it, I really appreciate the work you put into all your recipes. The downside is I have almost stopped buying recipe books and I have to be careful when I view your blog as it always makes me feel hungry! :)
    I long for the day when I might live somewhere that I can purchase all the listed ingredients, meanwhile I substitute local products (Fruit and Veg.) and look longingly at your beautiful photographs.

    Many thanks

Wishing Mahanandi many more glorious anniversary to come….
    Now please don’t block the comments on all other posts to come, and let us show how do you help us for planning a healthy meal. More over that I miss having conversations with you through comments here, I am sure many more must be feeling the same .

  110. Indira, Congratulations on the third year. You are a great inspiration. It is wonderful that talented people like you share every bit of the joy of cooking to all. I love the nostalgic remarks about our homeland. Every dish of yours brings back a lot of happy childhood memories when I read them. What a treat to have stumbled upon your website. Good luck to you, and thanks a million for sharing.

  113. Congrats! Indira. I thoroughly enjoy your site..the food, great photography and the way you articulate it. Pleases all my senses. Did I mention already, my cravings for amma’s food during pregnancy would be satisfied by looking at the pics and reading though your stories.

  114. Hi Indira, Happy third anniversary with ur blog! U really require a lot of kudos for really putting andhra meals on the world map!Im proud of you.

    Im an andhrite born and brought up in maharahtra. im intrigued that u do blend in the best dishes from other states. that is the greatness of andhra people. we easily accept other people and culture in a way that people from other states dont.

    Im happy that u have kept the andhra tradition and dishes alive. Keep up the good work!

    In the coming year, im expecting some nice traditional andhra recipes from you(i know only u can do it)…and im not hoping, im expecting it.

    Cheers!!
