  4. I love lemon grass. In addition to the many dishes it can be added to, I love it in tea. Lemon grass tea. Soothing and refreshing.

  5. Indira,
    Are we going to find you dish up some Thai dish? Wondering what you are going to dish up with this yummy spice… i love its flavor in the stocks/soups
    btw, where do you got this fresh ones? i was never fortunate to find the fresh ones :( but only the dried bottled ones from McCormick’s, even that sucks sometimes..
    will come back for the post tomm :)

    Thank u for the link. My father got a bunch from Chennai when he visited me -
    Revathi

    Indira replies:
    I loved the root photo Revathi. Thanks for sharing your fathers gift with us all.
    We prepare similar type of drink but with another root called “Nannari”. Tastes super great and a must have drink in many household during summer times at Nandyala.

  11. I was just searching for different gongura pachadi recipes on the net I found this one among them http://www.whereincity.com/recipes/iron-rich-recipes/gongura-chutney-2515.htm

    In which, the whole text was exactly copied from yours. Just check it! I just wanted to let you know.This is really unfair.Have a look at it! (Iam just posting here again as i did in your gongura chutney post to be noticed by you)

    Indira replies:
    Hi Meena, thanks for taking time to inform me. The recipe is mine and they didn’t have permission to republish it. I will contact them.
    Thanks Meena.
