  7. these are not your original recipe and so you can not claim copy right,right?

  8. @Dr.K.G.Bhat,
    I am not claiming copyrights for the recipes but for the photos, write-ups and the contents in my blog. Most of the recipes posted here are the ones I learnt from my amma, who in turn learnt from her amma and ajji. I know recipes can't be copyrighted but at the same time it can't be reproduced (copied and pasted from my blog and simply pasted in other blog) word-by-word.

  9. Thanks for taking the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love learning more on this topic. If possible, as you gain expertise, would you mind updating your blog with more information? It is extremely helpful for me.
