HI Krishnaveni

I searched Avarekayi curry, why it is not coming ????

Krishnaveni said...

@ Vani,

I think it is not searching as I was renamed it to Avarekalu.
You can also search the recipes in drop-down menus. I have categorized all the recipes and in each drop down menu all the recipes are in alphabetical order.
