“…. When I read about Jalapeno pepper’s they have lot of health benefits, they help to fight headache from migraine and sinus, relieve congestion.

“…This is yummy dish made out of rice, lentils and veggies…There is no need for any special side dish for this..a pappad would do…”
“…. Rasam or Chaaru is one of my favorite Indian Soups. Chaaru is usually served with rice and is a perfect comfort food in cold, winter weathers…”

Thank you so much to all of you for sending in your wonderful entries. Sorry again for the delay.
