Dear Rajul,
I want to immensely thank you for the wonderful cooking that you have taught us. I had a dinner at my place yesterday and for the starters I made the Makhana Kebab, Katori chaat and Tostadas that you have taught us. With your perfect recipe booket and your precious tips, they seriously took quite less time and tasted great. Your classes have really added a new spice in life!
Thanks Again,
