Samaithu Par (Cook & See)

This is the first cook book that i ever got. Just before i left for hostel, an uncle of mine couriered it to me so that i can cook myself and stay healthy at the hostel. It has all traditional recipes… I always take the help of the book while cooking regular preperations or for festivals…

This book is called “Cook & see” (Samaithu Par) from Meenakshi Ammal Publications


This is my entry for the event“Show me your cookbook” organised by Nags cook-book-event.jpg
