Hello Madhura, I am an English guy living in Oxford England UK with Costa Rican wife and a grown up daughter , we all love Indian food ,but never seem to be able to make genuine Indian food, I have just come across your YouTube vids: and find your recipes absolutely beautiful and brilliant, I love your presentation by the way, you make everything seem so simple , at last I have found someone who's recipes I can trust to make real Indian food, you really should be writing books as I am sure they would sell very well, I realise that would require a lot of your time especially as you have devoted most of your time to raising your daughter which I think is fantastic , it was what my wife done with our daughter, it really is quite unique these days, you have inspired me to go out and buy all the ingredients and follow your recipes and make some wonderful Indian food that I'm sure will astound everyone, I will be following your videos with great interest, Many thanks and keep up the good work your absolutely brilliant and a very lovely person your husband is very lucky to have such a lovely caring wife, Good luck and keep safe and healthy as I am sure you are being a vegetarian as is my daughter, Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and please start publishing books they will sell well, thankyou so much for the inspiration, John
