  1. Many of your recipes bring back sweet memories of the three years I spent in Guwahatti, living in Kharguli! My sister is married in Uzan Bazaar and she makes some traditional Assamese food. I have been wanting to do a feature on Assamese food and kitchen. I wonder if you can help me.

  2. I came across your blog while looking for some bengali food recipes and liked a lot. How amazing! I will keep an eye on your post.
