Have you ever wondered how many favorites foods you have that your mom cooks? I often think about them, make and enjoy them with my family. My mom, is a wonderful cook, cooking amazing yummy food every day. She has a lot of magic in her hands. She cooks regular Iyengar cuisine most of the time though she also cooks a little of others too. But, each and every recipe of hers is a keeper, whether it is a simple dal, sambhar, curry, rasam, sweets to the most complicated pickling....she is the best. No wonder I loved her cooking and learned a lot from her. Like for everyone, she is my best teacher.
