    well done, I and my family enjoy most of them and am going to try making some of them. Like bhang ki chutney, but you have mentioned cumin as saunf , both have distinctive strong flavours which would change the taste. I think one should be adding jeera to the chutney if I m not mistaken! Otherwise a commendable effort for compiling the recipes??
