    Thank you so much for putting this up! I am a Sindhi Pushkarna Brahmin and our culture, traditions, rituals and eating habits are very similar to Thathai Bhatias. This website is a blessing in disguise for those of us who wish to know more about our way of life.
    A Maharashtrian friend wanted to know the recipe of Saayi Bhaji aka Palak jo mitho saag, which I have shared with her from this website.
    Thanks again! :-)
