south Indian recipes
Today, on women's day, I have decided to come up with a page dedicated to our dearest Chitra Balachander. The name itself says the lady is from south India. But there is more to this name than her south Indian identity. CB di is brimming with talent, passion, and commitment. 
She is a strong headed woman, who does what she thinks is right. But she has a heart worth gold, who cares for everyone.

Let's all salute her women spirit and womanhood and take a lesson from her life and passion for food and cooking that keeps her going and kicking.

Travel with me to her south Indian kitchen and see how a homemaker can turn into a real life hero.
