Hello,

All the graceful short stories and pictures which are part of your every recipe is a true piece of art and there cannot be a better description then this :). There is something very special about this blog(or creative dairy) and like the name "divinetaste" it is truly divine. For the matter of fact I don't even remember how I landed here, all I remember now is that, I'm almost reading all the sections of this creative dairy from past 2 – 3 hours.

I love cooking more then my profession which is writing software code. I have read many many web sites all related to food and have tried many dishes. But honoring to my selfish nature, I rarely ever wrote any comment or a note of thanks to anyone.

Please keep up the great work and always keep it this beautiful.

Regards,
Aalok

Hi,

I accidentally saw your video on rajshri food yesterday. The biriyani preparation was simple so wanted to give it a try.. I have tried doing biriyani earlier by the long process and it always ended up in rice being little over cooked. I tried your version seriously the whole house was smelling. My husband and I enjoyed the biriyani. I took the food to his office as he was very early to office today so his friends also had a hand on it. … I got a comment ¬†from his friend the he never knew vegetable would be this tasty.. Thanks to you.

Regards,
Lakshmi

Dear Anu,

Thank you for this website. You are so beautiful and your food looks so tasty and amazingly appetizing. I will definitely remember to come back to your site again and again. I am a foodie lover living here in the U.S.

hi, i am a hare krishna devotee in london, i made kurmas recipe previously and was in a hurry so it did not turn out, but i made your recipe for a hare krishna program and everyone loved it, it turned out great and i also think you should get a prize, i love it

You are recipes are so accurate. I use at least 5 of your creations weekly!!!!!

Since the last three years, I have been making your cakes for all the birthdays in my family, the basic eggless vanilla cake, the golden yellow cake, the chocolate birthday party cake, the chocolate ganache cake, the pineapple cake Рso happy to let you know that they never let me down!  The best part about your recipes is that they are so perfectly measured and described and I know that if i blindly follow your recipe, I am sure to have a winner.  You never exaggerate taste or texture, you never downplay them either.  Thank you so much for hosting this blog and sharing your cooking and baking expertise with all of us.

Thanks to the confidence inspired by the recipes on your blog, I made a tiered chocolate birthday party cake for my son this year and everybody loved it.  I took up the challenge of baking for 70 odd people based on this specific chocolate birthday recipe of yours.  Thank you again Рeverybody loved the cake.

Dear Anushruti, Absolutely thrilled to read your recipe for Kulfi. Will definitely try it in the USA when I visit my grandsons and give them a taste of Indian delights! Can't imagine Hari all grown up and enjoying Kulfi !!! It seems just yesterday when I delvered him at Lilavati!! Lots of love!! Kiran Coelho

Your recipe came out perfect….this was the first time my cake tasted very good 🙂 Thank you so much 🙂

This biriyani has become my absolute go to. Such a delicate combination of flavours. And yes, no one ever readily believes that this is achieved without any onion or garlic. Thanks!

I came across 'Divine Taste' a few days back and I must confess,I am kind of hooked ever since..

We have a lot of things in common like being elder sister to a bro and a sis to learning cooking from grand moms to love for saatvik cuisine to being Krishna devotees 🙂 I love the way you present the recipes here- neat,clear and easy; not to forget the lovely family tales and photographs. You Rock!!!

I have tried a lot of your recipes- blueberry muffins,rava laddoos,7 cups barfee,baked vegetables,okra and pizza.. Your recipes have always worked and worked wonders!! My husband vouches for it! 🙂

So thank you for all the magic you are spreading through your talent! 🙂 god bless..

Hi Anushruti,

I too started baking recently and came across your site… extremely THRILLED to have found a site that promotes 'SATVIK AAHAR' and 'EGGLESS BAKING', as I too follow a sativk regimen and I completely agree with your thoughts on eating habits (something that not many people in today's world believe). I simply like the way you have presented your site… very neat.. and recipes, of course… just love it!!! Thanks a ton for sharing your knowledge on this subject and these lovely recipes.

Thanks again,
Neha 🙂

I love your blog!, Discovered a couple of months ago, have tried out a lot of your recipes and they've all turned out pretty good! I got my first un-pasty un-break cakes following your recipes. I even made a meal for my friends based on your recipes, and it turned out pretty good.

And the photos are awesome too.

Hi Anu, i tried your pizza dough recipe and it was great! everyone at home assumed i bought the dough and were truly surprised that i had made it from scratch. keep up your wonderful magical ways around the kitchen!

Hi Anushruti,

A silent follower of your blog. I just wanted to let you know that I have tried every single recipe of yours with great success. I made this cake today and as usual it was greAt. I can't thank you enough. I just had one query. The frosting was a lil grainy.and I thought there was a strong sugar taste or feel to the frosting. Any fixes for the next time? Cuz am gonna make it again for sure. Nd my cake color was more on the brown side. Yours looks yellow. Do u think it's the ingredients?

Waiting to hear from you.

Thanks
Divya

Dear Anushruti,

Thank you for this fantastic recipe. I made this cake following the instructions precisely for my 16th birthday yesterday, and i can say without doubt that this was the best homemade cake my family and I have ever tasted. It came out so perfect, with light, fluffy texture and a tangy center from the strawberry jam. Even my friends were super impressed! I would like to congratulate you for spreading good food recipes all across the world and i hope you post many more!

Hi Anushruti,

hello anushruthi, Рas i just came home from south india ( i visited india for the first time  ) and loved being there very much  - actually fell in love with the countryside, felt a lot of good spirit among the people and of course loved the food Рi just surfed for some good recipes Рyour site is much more than that, and now i will be trying your huli Рthanks and be well, yours, iris from haifa, israel

Hello Anushruti! I love your website!! I love Indian food but sometimes, I want to eat some western treats, and it is so difficult to find these recipes without eggs, onion and garlic. So your website fills a huge void- and beautifully! I have made several of the recipes (strawberry cheesecake, fried rice, macaroni and cheese) and they have all turned out wonderfully! I hope that you may one day be able to publish a cookbook, particularly a cookbook with eggless western desserts! In the future, I hope that you might publish more pie recipes, particularly the ones with custard filling that usually contain eggs. Best wishes for all of your future endeavours!

Hi Anushruti,

Now I know why am addicted to your site!!! Its because of your fail proof recipes..I made this cake today and it turned out perfect..

Hey! Your recipe of dal tadka was fantastic ! My mom made it today and it was so awesome that ive no words! A simple Dal has never tasted so gud. Thanks alot and do keep posting many more. 🙂

Hi Anushruthi,

I have been a silent follower of your blog till now. I thought it was high time that i broke my silence to thank you for giving such a wonderful recipe. I tried this out last week and followed the recipe just the way you have given. It turned to be really great !! 🙂 I didn't have a loaf tin, so i made these into cupcakes.. I am new to baking, your blog really has helped me understand a lot of things about baking !! Keep Writing 🙂 Thanks again !!

Hi Anushruthi…I love cooking since my childhood and I keep trying something or the other in the kitchen along with my wife. I came across your site while browsing for a desert recipe for our son's birthday who is turning 4 tomorrow. In his school, they don't allow chocolates to be distributed on kids birthday, so we have been searching for some unique recipes which can be easily made at home in a hygenic way and at the same time which is healthy for kids. I am so glad that I found your recipe…Dry fruits burfi….which is so simple to make and yet a healthy desert treat, for kids especially.

All your recipes are simply great and the photography is excellent and fantastic and enticing to try out all of them ! Thank you for sharing all your creations ! 🙂

Thanks,
Vish

Hi Anushriti,

I am Santhi from Sydney.  Thank you for your wonderful satvic recipes.  I was over the moon when I came across your website with recipes meeting my requirements without onion, garlic, eggs etc.  They are so simple and healthy. I cant thank you enough for your efforts in spite of the new born.

Keep going and include my support along with other viewers across the globe

Hi

My name is Mamatha and I am from Bangalore. I chanced upon your website this summer when I was searching for a mango cheesecake recipe. I tried out yours and it was a hit:) And needless to say I was hooked! Since then I have tried a few of your recipes (I must confess I am not really a good cook. I manage as long as I follow the recipes to a t!) This year I also baked my first cake ever….eggless almond cake with chocolate buttercream icing…for my daughter's 4th birthday. Now here's the interesting part…one of the people who tasted the cake was my niece Chaitra. I told her I got the recipe from your website and it turns out that she is a friend of your brother! In fact she even sent him an sms right away. What a wonderful coincidence:) I have been meaning to write to you ever since but finally got around to it now. I really want to thank you for the great recipes you post:) And your superb photographs too!

cheers
Mamatha

Hi Anushruthi

Thanks for putting up a Biryani recipe sans Onion and Garlic. I have made this a number of times while entertaining guests and none of them can believe that it does not contain Onion and garlic. Also, Im glad I can cater to my nonagenerian grandma's palatte with your recipe!

Hi Anushruti, I was directed to this site by my sister and the first thing I saw was one of my favourite dishes 🙂 I tried palak paneer yesterday nite and it turned out to be absolutely scrumptious. Everyone loved it, even my dad who does not like paneer much as a rule could not stop himself from second helpings. I am not a very good cook as such and I cannot tell you how happy it made me when things came together just like you described and it started looking like actual palak paneer :). Thank you for your wonderful work and the lovely pictures. Your son's hands are poster cards for innocence 🙂

Thank you for all the food inspiration! Across the world, there is a vegan trend and especially people who turn to yoga are looking for Sattvic and Ayurvedic recipes! So your recipes and videos have really helped me so much to learn cooking! Thank you very much

Hey I had followed you a few years ago on Rajshri Food's channel although I had no interest in cooking or even had any experience with it ~I was still in school! But I must Thank You from the bottom of my heart for spreading knowledge and receipes of saatvik diet! I gave up on Onions and Garlic when I was probably 15 ( it's been 4 years and still people ask me bizzare questions on how can I survive w/o onions) and later on I discovered your segment! Absolutely loved it!

Dear Anushruthi,

I stumbled into your website today while searching for eggless fruit cake recipe and since then have got addicted to reading your recipes 🙂 You really do a great job not just in cooking, in also presenting the recipe, photographing and narrating short stories of your day-to-day life! Sharing healthy, Saatvik, vegetarian recipes with people and bringing about an awareness about this ayurvedic lifestyle is truly a great contribution from your end to the society!! Please keep up the good work Anu! Just know that another fan got added to your fanlist 🙂

Best Regards, love and wishes
Ashwini

I have been reading your blog for sometime now and am extremely happy that among the younger set there are people like you who are modern and yet respect the really wise old traditions of our ageless samskriti.

Very well put about our mothers and grandmothers and their wisdom in keeping families together by following customs and rituals that were handed down to us!!!

We are mere 'vessels' who have the responsibility of passing on what we receive to our future generations. Bharat is living in varied time scales with different mind-sets and varying  economic levels.The truth is that there is indeed a phenomenal change taking place.But many things are going amiss just as what you have stated.

The INDIAN WOMAN – bharateey naari till now kept up our eternal traditions and needs to be saluted for upholding her stree-dharma(like the PANCHA-KANYAAS) But now even people young as you can see the 'boat being rocked'!

From all the responses sent to you surprisingly there is not a single reference to the very profound observation you have made regarding traditions!!!

I do hope and pray that 'thoughts and thinking' of the likes of you will inspire others to ponder and ruminate over the causes and reasons of societal upheavals metamorphosing the very nature of our Bharat today. Such losses and changes will change the face of MOTHER INDIA- VANDE MAATARAM!!!

PS;Your blog is beautiful and the food is indeed DIVINE – just as the title suggests!!! My very best to you.

Hi Anushruti!

I made this cake yesterday and fed it to my friends and guess what?? They were floored!!! It came out awesome and has been the best cake I've ever made till date. 🙂 Seriously!
I love your precise instructions. If only everything else in life came with such clear instructions 😉 😛
Keep the good stuff coming. And help us amateur cooks/chefs to survive.:) And thanks a tonne again.. 🙂

Hi Anushruti,

Though it is the first time I am writing to you, my mother and I are avid
readers and great fans of your blog. We have tried some of your recipes and they
have come out great! We especially appreciate the interest you take in
presenting the food. In this age of unbalanced living, my mother was admiring
your deep family values. We were simply thrilled to find a blog full of eggless,
oninon-and-garlic-free recipes and my mother felt it is a boon she came across
this! Do continue to cook, photograph, share and inspire! 🙂

On to the subject, we tried to resurrect our old oven (the marking says
"Lifetime Rotomat 3000", although I was not able to find much info on
this online) for some of the recipes and realized we ought to get a new one. Is
it a good option to go in for a microwave-with-OTG? Please would you suggest
brands for a (i) good microwave and (ii) good OTG or (iii) a good combination
oven, if you feel that is all right?

Sincere thanks,
Gowri

Hi, I am a South African Indian, and i have been searching far and wide for
eggless baking receipies. Thankfully i came across your website during one of my
searches an i want to thank you for a wonderful site. Your interesting stories
attributing food to real life experinces is truelly touching and often makes me
think of my childhood when my grandmother would spoil us with wonderfully
prepared meals. Thank you for sharing the stories and the receipies and i look
forward to seeing more on your website. All the best with the site until next
time!

Hey there

I came across your blog on Foodgawker. You are that person Ive been waiting for – also, that cook that I have always strived to be – since we share the same diet!

I really want to congratulate you on this amazing blog – more a piece of art!I really admire you:) Dont know what else to do but praise you over and over!

Anushruti, I think the way you write is almost as magical as your recipes. I have never liked rava laddus all that much but your writing has convinced me to give them another go and I am going to make them this weekend. I originally planned to make them for Ganesha Chaturthi but I am abroad and could not find all the ingredients on time. You really have a way with words and your site is a really feel-good place to be. Wish you a very happy Ganesha Chaturthi.

My mum used to make rava  laddus with sugar syrup.(now she is no more).I came across many recipes using powdered sugar, which i found dry and yearned for mum's recipe. Thank you Anushruti! for sharing this wonderful recipe.

I have grown up eating food without garlic and onion. I have been cooking with garlic and onion since the past few years and sometimes feel at a loss when I have to cook something special and nice without these specially when I have guests who don't eat onion and garlic. Your recipes really are a find!

Rajma and saffron rice look amazing, shall try them sometime soon!

Tried it and loved it. many thanks for this wonderful yet simple recipe. and u r right. 3/4 tsp of hing gives it a that 'extra' special something 🙂

Hiya anushruti,

I read ur recipe yesterday and having been a baking virgin all my life I had an overwhelming desire to bake this pineapple cake right away…and boy was it worth the effort!!!

Thank you so very much for sharing the recipe. I would highly recommend it for all to try.

Hey Anu, words aren't enough to thank you for this recipe!!!!
I have been baking for a while now and getting good feedback from friends n
family on my cakes…so every time sumone comes over i am expected to bake a
nice cake!!! Now a few folks are coming over this weekend and they are
vegetarians….i was in a fix…i have never baked an eggless cake…so had been
busy last couple of days looking for and baking the eggless variety…but with
much disappointment….never liked the taste and the crumb texture….After
tasting the usual one that uses condensed milk my hubby said it tasted like a
baked gulab jamun!!! So i finally decided to give up on this venture…until…i
stumbled upon ur blog!!! Decided to give one last shot at this custard
cake….What an outcome!!! the crumb is as soft as a regular cake…and it
tastes of vanilla :))…The cake has just come out of my oven and I am so
thrilled with the product, i knew i had to thank u first…now me shall enjoy
the cake with a nice cup of oolong tea on this rainy day …thank u once again
😀

Dear Anushruti,

You are an amazing photographer! It's my dream to take a delectable
pictures like that (may be later, when my 17 months old bundle of energy grows
up). I love cooking and enjoy food photography, that's why your site caught
my eye.

Keep up the great work!
