  1. Hi Manjula Ji,

    I checked the site Bed, bath and beyond, however, could not find those cutting sheets that you use. What you call them exactly. Pls reply, so that I can buy from there.

    Thanks and regards,

    Rashmi

  2. Hi Manjula Ji,

    From where do you buy the cutting sheets. Its a good replacement for cutting board. I would love to use these sheets instead. Please let me know, where from I can get them?

    Regds,

    Rashmi

  3. Hello Manjula,
    Thanks for all of these lovely recipes. I have been following your website for 2 years now. I request you to publish some quick and small recipes that I have craving for these days as I am expecting a baby. Please help me out 🙂

  4. I am sure you have spent a lot of time to provide this hight quality article to us. I do not know how to thank you.:)

  5. Reading this i finally took a break from my work. I run a hardware store, and i get kinda stress throughout the day =) your post just gave me a few minutes of relax =] I managed to find a rss feed on your site, so that i could subscribe for some more. Ill be sure to come here more often from now on =)

  6. i tried this …it’s very tasty. I don’t use store bought dressing being onion and garlic. Can you post some more salad and soup recipe with homemade dressing and without onion garlic too.

  7. This is one of my favourites! I’d never thought I would like something which contains both spinach and apples… and actually I loved it and I prepare it often. The walnut dressing is exquisite. Thanks a lot!

  8. Aunty !!

    I loved the recipe and i am definitely gonna try this. Can i substitute Balsamic Vinegar with anything else?

    Thanks

  9. This was an absolutely delicious salad! I wasn’t too sure how the apple would blend with the salad, but it provided the right amount of sweetness and offset the tanginess of the dressing so nicely. Will definitely be making this again!

  10. I am going to have so much fun trying your recipes. I found your website awhile back, but am just now getting to use it again. I really love Panak Paneer (sp?). Is that the same thing as spinach dal?

    1. I am sure you figured out by now…but I just came across your question. Spinach daal is not the same as Palak paneer (creamed spinach dish with Indian cheese cubes). Enjoy!

  11. Hi Aunty, I made this salad and it was an instant hit. My husband doesn’t like lettuce, so I do not make salads that require lettuce, but this spinach salad, he relished. Thank you so much for taking so much effort and sharing your recipes with us. You look cool with the new hair-cut and glasses.
