  5. I’ve just discovered your blog and am getting very, very hungry and more than a little inspired. Thanks for all the great ideas.

    Comment by annulla — September 3, 2006 @ 12:46 am

  6. Hi Indira

    I came across your website when I was searching for Murukulu Reciepe. I must tell you from that time I have become a fan of your website. Your writing style and the way you present the food is absolutely wonderful. I was not a great fan of cooking but when I look at the way your reciepes are presented, I feel like trying out all the receipes and of course also eating them.
    I wish you all the best.

  7. Hi Indira

    I’m learning Indian cooking as I’m forced to – staying so far from home makes me yearn for all things South Indian like never before.

    If someday, someone asks me how I learnt to cook – all I will say is Nandyala.

    Thanks! You’re an inspiration & a treasure-house!

  8. This blog is mind-boggling (hope I am correct with spelling-;), how you are able to spend so much time and effort (with career you must hv been following) stuns me. I have become your fan and wish I could do all the mouth-watering recipes, you have brought out. Wish me luck-:).
    Wishing you happy Dasara and Deepavali.

  12. Hi Indira,
    I stubled across this site quite accidentally last evening when I was browsing through the usual sites .. I was hooked on to the site within minute.I just love the way you have taken pictures & presented the recipes. I have already made 4.. yes, yes 4 dishes in one day!!! :-)& the final product looked exactly like the ones in your pics. I am going to try making the egg pakodas over the weekend.
    I just loved your site.Keep up the good work.
    Good luck!!!!

    Comment by Mini — October 24, 2006 @ 6:49 pm

  13. Indiraji,

    I am so glad to have found your blog. I am from Hyderabad and your recipes remind me of my mom’s cooking – so much nostalgia. The recipes are great (some I am delightfully familiar with) and there are some tips that can be really useful to me. Also – I live in Seattle too so that makes me feel a strange kinship with you!

    Keep blogging!

    Comment by Neel — December 2, 2006 @ 10:19 pm

  14. Greatest!! Mind boggling effort! You surely deserve an award!

    Comment by Prutha — December 5, 2006 @ 2:21 am

  15. Hi Indiraji,
    I just come acroos your site and it is really wonderful. Now I am looking for some after child birth or what we call “Pathiya samayal”. My friend is pregnant now and she is expecting the baby around Christmas day.
    I have promised her to cook for her.Please help. I am new to cook these stuffs, ofcourse it is a bit hard for people like us far from our home land.
    Thanks for all your receipes and excellent photos.

    Indira replies:
    Hi Hema, congratulations on your freind’s baby and it’s very nice of you to take care of her. Nice to know a good person like you.
    I am not sure about pathiya samayal menu. I think ‘Legiyam’ is one of the pathiya food. You can find the recipe for it at Menu Today’s blog. Click here for the link.
    Also the food blogger at Menu Today is more experienced in such recipes than me. I am sure she will assist you readily about pathiya samayal. Her blog link is here.
    Usually methi/fenugreek (for milk)- foods are fed to the new mother along with jaggery and dates/kharjuram(for Iron). Hope this helps.
    – Indira

    Comment by Hema — December 17, 2006 @ 7:48 pm

  16. Hi Indraji,
    Tons of thanks for the links and your appreciation.
    What friends are for? :-))
    And happy to tell you the good news ” my friend is blessed with a baby boy ”

    “Wish you and your family A Very Happy New Year 2007”

    Hema from Melbourne, Australia.

    Indira replies:
    Congratulations Hema. Do convey my wishes to your friend.
    Happy New Year!

    Comment by Hema — January 1, 2007 @ 3:11 pm

  17. Hi Indira,
    Here’s wishing you and your family a very happy & prosperous 2007.
    Thank you for everything you do . I cannot thank you enough for getting me interested in cooking!I visit your blog at least once a day & when I do visit other blogs, for some reason, I have to go through yours first!!
    Your recipe today using Choyate is really good & simple. I have seen this vegetable in the Indian store here but never quite knew what to do with it (just like your brussel sprouts veggie recipe… never even knew that one could use it the way you have mentioned)
    Keep up the good work!
    Happy 2007!

    Comment by Mini — January 3, 2007 @ 3:10 pm

  18. Hi Indira,

    This is good website I have ever seen for cooking. My brother told me about this website and he said he luv to cook receipes from this website as they look traditional and he said he will buy your pedatha book surely for which I was making fun of. But honestly even I liked this website after browsing for sometime. Your presentation of recipes look good. Really traditional. Feel as if my grandmother’s recipes are written here which I love to prepare and eat. Thanks a lot to you.

    Comment by Uma — January 23, 2007 @ 10:46 am

  19. Hi Indiraji,

    My friend gave me 2 Zukinis yesterday from her garden. Farm fresh… But for me ….

    Can’t hurt her by saying no (an Ausie friend)

    Bit confused as it’s a new vegie for me…
    Then found the solution from your Zukini Receipe.

    Can you please suggest some diet samayal (with less/no oil).
    Scratching my head and running out of receipes now…. Trying to be fit and healthy.
    Hope you can be of help.

    Hema from Melbourne

  20. I stumbled upon your website while looking for a recipe for Egg Kurma, and the rest is history …. I am Singaporean Chinese, hence am familiar with Indian cuisines. Your website has definitely broadened my horizons with regards to vegetarian indian food from different regions. The thumbnail gallery is fantastic, a picture truly speaks a thousand words. You have just found yourself a Chinese fan !!!

    Comment by roopa — March 3, 2007 @ 9:14 am

  22. You have created a very gorgeous web-site offering tons off educational and practical advice. I was also pleased to see that there were no meat recipes, which prmotes suffering of both the animal who is butchered, and to the person who is doing the killing or preparation. To keep things more on the sattvic side of goodness, I would eliminate the use of the chicken’s menstruation (eggs), unless you want to promote tamasic things, as well as mushrooms, which ayurveda says deranges vata in the mind, and onions and garlic. Hing is a much better replacement. I was looking for recipes with Kalonji seed or oil, but I could not find any.

  23. Great Indian Cooking Site…

  24. Hi Indira,

    When its festival time, like today (tommorow is ugadi, btw Happy ugadi!), i have to go to your site for recipes.

    My only disappointment though is that you dont post any non vegeterian recipes (unless i have missed a link somewhere).cooking is my passion and my husband loves his non veg so i keep pestering my ma and grandma for recipes. it will be good if we could have a section for age old non veg recipes from andhra pradesh. i am happy to help and contribute if you need.

    Thanks heaps for all those lovely recipes/ naivedyams. You are my best friend during navratri!!!

    This was one of the best website I have been to, especially for Indian food. Thanks to one of my friend(Rohit) who forward this url. I have enjoyed & tried couple of dishes & they were great.
    One more thing to add is your presentation is excellent with pictures. Keep it up.

  32. Hi,
    This is an awesome cooking recipe site. I love to cook ur recipes. But i think you are using some thelugu words, i couldn’t understand some of them. If you use that words in English , it will be very helpful for beginners like me.
    Thanks & congratulation for your work.

  37. Hi Indira garu,
    I liked the way you wrote about mahanadi, its rich and perfect. I felt like visiting Mahanadi and become a Mahanadian.
    Great Site, Rich Information ,Clear and Perfect.
    We need more rich sites like Mahanadi.

    Comment by Nikhil — September 26, 2007 @ 1:45 am

  38. Hi Indira Garu,

    I really envy you, reason: I’m very good cook myself and know/do many of the dishes that you have wrote, and I always wanted to present it in writing for public which I couldn’t…I have always imagined my writings in the same similar way that I see here.
    But I’m glad that someone came up doing the good work, I really like your work and you have crossed my imaginations. Keep up the good work. I will never miss to see for new recipies.

    Good luck.

    Appreciate your comments/help.

    By the way, I have seen so many websites indian/otherwise of similar subject… But this one is great & clean… Kudos to you & your web designer/team.


    Comment by SRI — January 13, 2008 @ 8:43 am

  44. Hello Indira from the Pacific island of Vanuatu. I love your website – it is very well put together and is so user-friendly. I’ve visited India on many occasions, often for extended periods, and have always tried to cook authentic indian food using authentic recipes. That’s not quite so easy here as a lot of the ingredients are not in supply, however I’m adapting what is available. As an example, I’ve used a local version of spinach called island cabbage for use in palak paneer and it was a success. I had to make my paneer using UHT milk which was a reasonable substitute.
    Again, thank you for a wonderful site – it really is a pleasure to have found you!
    Kind regards, Kerry.

    Comment by Kerry Burgess — January 18, 2008 @ 9:26 pm

    This site is fantastic. Especially ur photos are mouth watering. Keep up the good work.


    Comment by Kiran — February 1, 2008 @ 2:27 am

  46. Hi Indira, It is heartwarming to see the effort and detail that goes into your recipes. I have already shared this website with my sister and friends.
    Keep up the good work!

    Comment by sujaya — February 8, 2008 @ 11:46 am

  47. Could you please include recipes for chapatis (rotis). We used to order these from a Punjabi lady who used to make them for an Indian grocery store, but she has moved so I want to learn how to make them. They were the best chapatis I’ve ever had. They were soft even after days in the fridge or freezer and not hard, dry or chewy. She told me once that she used atta, and water that’s it, but most recipes I found use salt and oil. Please comment. Thank you!

    Comment by Jaan — February 11, 2008 @ 3:10 pm

  48. Indira!
    I LOVE your website!! I have learned more here than any of the cookbooks I have or other recipe sites I have used. I am not Indian (Hungarian, actually) but I have come to really love Indian (and Lebanese) food and am slowly but surely building my pantry and widening my cooking horizons. Today I am off to the store to get what I need to make Paneer Navratan Khorma (starting with the paneer). I know it will be wonderful. Next step — Naan. Thank you for all that you have done!

    Comment by Judi Nyerges-Beaudoin — February 16, 2008 @ 9:45 am

  49. Hi Indira,

    I came across your website by accident and I must say that it was a very pleasant one at that! The website has tremendous visual appeal and it is an entire world that you have created with your recipes. Please keep the good work going!
    PS: I ventured into the world of cooking just 4 weeks ago and intend to use your website to enhance my skills 🙂


    Comment by Sahana Rangarajan — February 22, 2008 @ 4:48 am

  50. Hi Indira

    Thanks for such a wonderful site. Surfing this site has become an addiction to me in my lunch time. I simply look at the delicious photographs and feel more hungry just before lunch. Even the receipes are also so novel. But please include some new receipes which can be prepared in a short time specially for working women. I hope you have a solution for that.

    Any idea about Oriya receipes ! Try some.

    Thanks again for a wonderful site.

  52. Namaste and Good Morning !!

    I emailed you yesterday about diffculties with reception of your website…. I don’t know if you received the email or not…. or if it was instrumental in the *great* improvement we have this morning, but ‘Mahanandi’ is bright and chirpy this morning…with all sorts of *immediate* responses to requests all over the entire site…..!!!

    Regardless of what happened, I am a grateful reader of your work and happy to see it all in such good working order on my computer !!…so: thank you !!


    Comment by Lakshmi Primala — September 2, 2008 @ 11:39 am

  53. Excellent work by Indira! No words!
    Believe me I am in Sydney-Australia and referring all recipes on this website.
    Sent this link to all my friends including (Australians) they loved it as the presentation is best.
    I have not seen such a gr8 presentation on any recipe site.
    You are amazing.. Just keep up the good work For US please!

    Comment by Varada — August 25, 2009 @ 8:57 pm

  54. Hi Indira & Vijay,

    I was running a search for “Nandi Sonamasoori rice” and guess what, I landed on your webpage. Then I went on surfing for one page to the other for an hour for two reasons.

    The first, Mahanandi being so close to my heart. I love the place for its serenity, sanctity, and the clear water ponds. I love swimming there for hours and hours.

    The second, amazing content of this website. Each one of you is outdoing the other in the chosen art, the culinary art and the photographic art.

    And, by the way, I have a purpose too in writing these comments. I am from the same district of AP from where you are, and currenlty living in Fremont, CA. For that very reason, I want to connect with you if you have reciprocative feeling.

    I am sure, the School you started would be doing great and is well on its path to achieve the purpose.

    warm regards,
