While on the subject of traditional dishes, I recall way back in my childhood my mother cooking these dishes and some of her friends, even while enjoying the dish, would express their inability to make these dishes because of the effort that goes into preparing them. Inability to make a dish due to the effort or time that goes into it appears to be a common refrain amongst those who are reluctant to spend too much time in the kitchen. When I grew up I wondered whether these traditional dishes and recipes will be lost when my mum and others like her are no longer around. I, therefore, decided on this blog but deep down in my heart there was a doubt, will the younger generation really be interested in the traditional recipes? However, I have noticed - much to my pleasant surprise - that the traditional recipes both in this blog and on my YouTube channel get more hits than the other recipes.
