Dear Vah Chef,
I want to thank you for helping me and million other people in learning how to cook tasty and healthy food. I had not been keeping well lately, I met with major accidents and now I am suffering from various Health problems like obesity, Kidney stones, Blood pressure, etc. to name a few. Sounds strange that why am I telling you all this?!!...............Well during all these depressing days, I was surfing net and I found your website.........I truly loved it and tried making some light food for me. Now I need your help, as I have kidney stones I cant eat tomatoes.......and I am very fond of them. I dont know how to cook north indian food (vegtables and rice) without tomatoes. I sometimes get depressed that I wont be able to eat good and tasty food ever in life now, as I am very fond of veg.food...........It might sound wierd but its real for me.........I dont know what to do and where to find help............If you can help me with some reciepes without tomatoes, I'll be very greatful to you.
Thanks & Regards
Madhu Gandhi
