  1. I loved your recipe website! OMG it was the best I’ve seen around. I love how you have created specific categories for the different food types. You have an excellent website, and I was able to find everything I was looking for.

    The only suggestions I have is:
    1. add a search bar, it would make searches easier.
    2. provide different garam masalas, chat masalas, add haleem, Chicken curry, Keema mattar, and Pakoras and something called Egg Ekuri (Parsi dish). These are only suggestions!

    I love your website! Thank you for such a wonderful website!!!
