From my childhood I have a habit of collecting the interesting articles from the news papers. Now when I look back to those articles, they seem to be nothing in this fastly growing internet age ( as everything is available in the net), but definetly interesting and important at that point of time. And one of the important things which I used to collect without fail was Cooking articles from Eenadu sunday magazine. I have been collecting cooking articles from almost 12 years. Even other magazines also used to feature the cooking articles, but I used to like eenadu`s. The thing which attracted me was, the presentation. I tried them only after my marriage, infact I started cooking after marriage. My mom always used to crack jokes on me about my recipe collection, since I never ever did anything in my mom` kitchen. Even now, whenever I go to my mom`s house, I don`t help her in kitchen. Neither I help her nor she asks me some help. Parents are so kind right, they don`t want their kids to work and get tired even for couple of minutes. Ahh,,,,where am I going… now coming to this potato noodles in veg gravy recipe, the idea of doing potato noodles is based on one of the Eenadu`s recipes. I don`t remember recipe properly since I did not get my heavy recipe file here :( becoz of the weight reasons. The airlines to Tokyo do not allow more than 33 kg per person. I know I know, I am deviating from the main point. Now seriously to the recipe…… So here comes my recipe for JFI-Potato.
