    Are you moving to Seattle for good? If yes, Welcome to west coast!!!

  12. When I glanced first, I read the title as ‘Moving to New York City’ and I was so excited! I thought that now I can meet the master cook and take some lessons live! My excitement died when I read that you are moving to a new city and that new city is Seattle. Oh well….. good luck with the move! 🙂

    Comment by JD — August 17, 2006 @ 5:20 pm

    Comment by Kerala Girl — August 17, 2006 @ 5:30 pm

  16. Hi Indira gaaru,
    I have been regularly visting your site since almost 6 months, since I came to know of food blogs – believe me – every day.but, First time i wrote any comment. The way you cook reminds me of my mom. maadi kooda raayalaseema and chinnapudu mahanandi ki chaaaaala sarlu vellam.nice place.And, the step-by-step instructions with snaps is amazing. Hats of to your patience and skill. Is that you in the picture – ‘calm,confident and content’ on top of website?? I think I know the person in picture. was wondering it if was you, though Indira is not name of person I know.

    Comment by Arjuna — August 17, 2006 @ 6:30 pm

  22. Hi Indira, we’ll sure miss your recipes till you settle down. I hope the move goes okay with you guys. I personally hate moving, packing, unpacking….but Seattle is one of the most livable city in the west coast, so you should enjoy it once you settle down.

    Comment by Nabeela — August 17, 2006 @ 6:48 pm

  23. Btw, I loved that song.

    Comment by Nabeela — August 17, 2006 @ 6:51 pm

  24. Hello Indira! My first comment here. I only discovered your blog last week and finished reading it end to end in a single sitting. Great work!

    Welcome to Seattle! Contrary to what anyone might have told you, Seattle is a great city and not a rainy city. I have lived here for the last 8 years and I have never felt that Seattle is a rainy city. It does rain – but I think the climate is very comfortable during anytime of the year when compared to places like new york, washington dc etc.. No extreme heat or cold weather.

    I hope you love it here. Please feel free to contact me if you need any help in the new place.

    Comment by SUbha — August 17, 2006 @ 7:12 pm

  25. All the best Indira.I will be moving to a new place in one or two months time, but donno where :(, if at all I move to seatle I would be more than happy to meet you. Take care

    Comment by shilpa — August 17, 2006 @ 7:24 pm

  27. Indira, I hope we can meet when next I’m in Seattle – my sister lives there! 🙂 Have a safe move!

    Comment by shammi — August 17, 2006 @ 7:38 pm

    Do keep us posted once you land on how it went…

    Comment by Diane — August 17, 2006 @ 11:51 pm

  38. Hi Indira,

    I read your blog almost every day because I love to try out all your yummy recipes (the red bell pepper chutney is my favorite so far). I have never commented but just couldn’t resist when I saw that you are moving to Seattle, the place that I was born and raised! Seattle is a very comfortable and pretty city. Be sure to take a day trip on the ferry boat to Bainbridge island or if you have more time go north (by the border) to the San Juan Islands (SO beautiful!!)… now I’m getting homesick. 🙁


    Comment by Kate — August 17, 2006 @ 11:55 pm

  39. Wishing you all the very best with your move and new home. Look forward to seeing you back when you’re settled in.

    My 14 yo daughter just *loves* that song, btw 😉

  49. Indira– congratulations and good luck! Seattle’s my hometown, and it’s a fantastic city for food (& life in general). And just head over the bridges to the East Side to find some very good S. Indian food indeed.

    Comment by elizabeth — August 18, 2006 @ 11:12 am

  50. Best of luck, Indira! Sorry we didn’t get to meet while you were close to Pittsburgh! You’ll be closer to much more variety in your food options now – I look forward to reading about them! 🙂

  54. hi indira –

    Good luck with the move. Share with us your experiences related to the move and also Seattle. Seattle is one place my husband and I want to visit for sure, or possibly move…Maybe your blogs can help us understand the place, its culture, people, and food scene better.

    have a great move!

    Comment by desimom — August 18, 2006 @ 12:39 pm

I am looking forward to some healthy trail mix recipes from your blog…:-)You will fall in love with the healthy lifestyle of the people, and the environmental consciousness on the social side. The food scene must be vibrant as well – coffee, chocolate, etc..Good luck!!

    Comment by SP — August 18, 2006 @ 12:49 pm

  56. Have been a silent reader of your blog. Wonderful recipes, but as someone said why wont you be posting till october??We would love to move to seattle too but didn’t know much about the place except that its really pretty. So if you could write about your move and how you selected this place, is it through job and how you settled in and liked it that would be wonderful. Thanks..Tanu

  60. Hi Indira –

    Moving is never fun as it truly takes months to get moved in completely. Hope you have a not-so-stressful move in, and looking forward to having you back !!

    Comment by Monisha — August 18, 2006 @ 2:02 pm

  61. Seattle is one of the pretteist cities I had been to. Though I think, over period of time rain tires you out.

    I never really left any comments, But am regular visitor to this site. I will miss your blogs.

    Enjoy the west and good luck.

    Comment by Soujanya — August 18, 2006 @ 2:52 pm

  62. Welcome to the beautiful Evergreen State Indira, I lived here for 5 years, believe me the rain never bothers you once you call this your home 🙂 I started looking at your website a few weeks back, realized that you are pretty popular with my friends too, who forgot to mention your site to me.

    We live on the east side in Redmond, feel free to contact us if you have any Q’s about places to go. I am an organic gardener myself and love cooking, hope to meet you sometime. I knew that you were moving to Seattle from a friend who called me today. Welcome to the most beautiful place in the Northwest area, I am sure you will love it. Have a safe move.

    Comment by Madhu — August 18, 2006 @ 5:52 pm

  63. Dear Indira!

    Wish you good luck with the move! When I came to Houston after my marriage, I knew nothing about cooking and gave hard time to my hubbie who is a big freak of food :). I came to know about you through my friend and started trying the authentic recipes from your website. They not only made me a good cook but also gave me enough confidence to invite friends to party.

    My husband loves almost all the dishes and especially your avocado mantra to make chapaties… this helps make puffy chapaties very fast and with great ease..

    Looking fwd to see more recipes from Seattle.

    Have a safe journey and lots n lots of fun in Seattle.

  70. Indira,
    Good luck with the move. October? No activity on ‘Mahanandi’ until then? I am definitely gonna go crazy then. 🙂 Btw, I just love love love that song. Love it the most when they play it on radio when I’m driving. 🙂
    Anyway, you take care of yourself until we *see* you next.

    Comment by Vaishali — August 19, 2006 @ 4:40 pm

  71. Good Luck Indira! Until you are back in October with many more food goodies, I shall be digging your archives.

    Comment by Lavanya — August 20, 2006 @ 1:38 am

  72. Hi Indira, comment 49 mentioned the SI food on the East Side. Well the dishes are ok, but the cocunut chutney is abysmal. I talked to the cook and he tells me that they made it that way to appease the general clientele.

    I am NOT being a chutney snob, but just cocunut + red chillies + salt do not a cocunut chutney make. I hope you can influence them to make authentic SI cocunut chutney 😀

    Comment by Dangit — August 20, 2006 @ 3:06 am

  73. I started reading your blog just now and you gave me the good news that you are coming to west coast.

  103. Hi Indira,
    First of all let me thank you for all the wonderful recipes and the Mouth-watering pics that you post for each recipe! Never a cooking enthusiast, I totally agree that your site inspired me to do some cooking. And welcome to Seattle, I think its one of the best places to live in, even with Rain! 🙂

  104. Happen to wander in to your site and I am happy that I did. You have recieved so much acclaim that the marginal joy from this post is probably next to nothing (Law of diminishing marginal utility), but I will put in my two words anyways.

    I like (Like a million others here) your presentation style, and infact my first reaction after visiting this site is kind of sense of pride ( A telugu person is using blog as a medium for recepies — emphasis is not on Telugu , but technology) , I did my first blog three years ago and it never occured to me that it can be used this way.

    I think we share a couple of interests here , photography and cooking. I am a part time cook , but I love experimenting. (Hate to measure any thing while cooking and I never taste any thing until it is served)

    Hey , congratulations for the good work and the greate reviews your work is getting. Keep it up. Gotta go, it is 2.20 AM already.

  106. Hi Indira,

    Your blogs and recipes are amazing…..I recently moved to Singapore and your site gives me great ideas to cook…

    This is the first time I have lived all by myself in 25 years and have to cook to eat…

    Your classification of dals really is such an eye opener for me.

    Thank you….

    Maybe am writing these comments in the wrong section….

  112. Hi Indira,

    I hope you are getting emails. I want you to see this issue where an Indian student was killed in Russia for hate. We need to protest against this hate crime . First I thought I would post it on my blog. But if you post it, I think it would get a better exposure than mine.
    This is the blog link – Some of it is in Malayalam.

    This post was posted by that killed guys friend. None of the mainstream Indian media has this news. But Reuters has this news. Indian Embassy is not very supportive it seems.
    How dare they?

    I apologize if you think this comment should not be put here. It is okay if you think it is not a trivial issue also. Was just trying to get this issue a good exposure – thats all.

    I wanted to be the 100th person to comment on this post. But ah! too much rush here by your loyal fans 🙂 Have you started getting letters written in blood? hehehehe..

    Hope you had a good move and got your kitchen items and your laptopn intact..thats all matters:-)

    Indira replies:
    I went through the link you have provided and felt sad after reading what happened. What a loss, I can’t imagine the parents grief. All because of hate.
    I couldn’t understand what was written in Malayalam. If there is a call to campaign or action plan, I would definitely lend my support. Thanks InjiPennu for posting about this here.Loss of precious life is a never a trivial issue in my eyes.

    Move went well. We are slowly settling in Seattle. Thanks for your wishes.

  113. Indira,

    Just saw one of your picture is used in a newspaper article. I will mail you about it.

    Hope the move went well. Looking forward to your posts.

  114. Indira, Great to hear from you. I have posted a page on my blog. If we all could atleast post a page, I think that would get some attention from our media. Can you imagine our print media who would devote pages to Ssalman’s affairs is so mum about it. Especially rediff which is an online media catering to NRI’s mostly! Maybe they dont have readership in Russia!! Grr..

  115. Tick tick tick tick….am waiting for tomorrow…Oct 1st. I am eagerly waiting to see a post from you 🙂

  125. oops Indira, I spoke too fast. Mandira had send me an email yesterday.I only checked it today.

    She says she wants to see some green in cold buffalo during Winter. So she would host the Winter event and you could host the Summer event (which will be more work…hehehe)

    Here is Mandiras blog.

    So you agree on Summer 2007. October ROUNDUP?

    Indira replies:
