Loved it! As simple as that! Even my wife, who is not overly fond of Karela was surprised how good it was. Thank you!

Hi Sanjay,

I love your recipies and especially I love watching your videos. I have tried quite a few recipies that I wouldn't dare to cook on my own (for ex: Fish Curry, Chicken Biryani etc. ), they turned out to be absolutely yummy & mouth watering.

Just one more thing, I really enjoy it when you taste your dish towards the end of the video and say 'ummmm'..... and that really inspires me to cook.

ThanX a ton ;-)
