Yes Nalini from "Nalini's kitchen" is here behalf of her sister "Punithavathy Saravanan" . I was getting all the approvals when Nalini said Nalini's sister too wanted to join this event, But she had a problem of not been able to send the pics. As Nalini said my sis lives in a place where there is lot of internet problem i accepted the request and she made her sister's recipe and clicked some pics. As you all know i wanted to give a chance to all non blogger's who are passionate for cooking  and its not the pic but the recipe will be winning at the end of the contest :) So Lets move on and know more about punitha sis :)
