I’m Sabitha’s brother, VASU. Just wanted to share some of my recipes on my sister’s food blog. Hope you enjoy them.

These yummy vegetable puffs stuffed with fresh vegetables are my wife’s favorite afternoon snack. We had some fresh veggies in the pantry today so it’s time to get cooking some lovely puffs.
