  1. Your recipes are really awesome! As an anglo indian growing up and living in Alberta, I never had the chance to learn about Indian culture and food. Learning to cook Indian food with my husband is very important to me to be able to teach our future children about their heritage. thank you for making these videos! It makes it so easy to learn!
