Myvegfare said...

hi, chitra, I Love youuuuu.....hahahaha don't get scared, do u know why I said like that, I always read ur Kitchen clinic because I wanted to write things like that in my blog but, I haven't had time to do so...I feel it is very important what u r cooking & how good it is to u as u said I have only heard from my circle that MSG is no good, some of them had after effects, I never buy anything which has MSG, without it also food tastes good as u said, & as u said sometimes like going to chinese resturant once in a while definitely is not going to kill us, I loved the whole block their. of course coming to the recipe it looks so delicious...will try sometime of course without MSG!!, & Thank u for remembering me, my first one was from rajee & now u, thank u again...well.

Congratulations on your awards! This paratha looks delicious and thank you so much for all the excellent information about MSG/Ajinomoto. It is commonly used in Asian cuisine and yet so vilified here in the US.
