My husband is from a big joint family, where his granny rules the best kitchen. Their recipes and cooking styles extremely differs from mine. I never got a chance to stay there and learn from them…Whenever i ask for recipes to the granny, she says these all jujupy (silly..heehee) for you…My little mil (his aunt) and granny (his patti) are the best pair in cooking together to make best sweets, vathals and podis which i bag them a lot.
