Thanks Priya for hosting such a wonderful event and for the award. I feel very happy and it motivates to bake frequently. You guys have made my day:-)



My Dad asked me to prepare Dhokla since the time he came here, I somehow couldnot do. Today prepared for evening snack as they are leaving back to India. This time it came out perfect.
