I have bought stuff from www.namaste.com

Its not too bad... The prices are normal and usually they deliver on time.. you could even buy sweets etc. Also, I am not sure if they still do it - but if you are a part of an organization, which is doing some social work in India, you can register your organisation with them, and they will give you a number. If you use the number while buying, they donate a part of that purchase (some 2 %? ) to the designated charity.. Not bad..

There are several other sites too.. Google it up...

A 'Kadai' is.... it will look like this (a much abused one... like if I was the cook!!)


we use to call it vaanali ie வாணலி or vadai -chatti வடை சட்டி

Yenna, nalla useful info-ah??

:D :D
