Thannisaar - Guest Post by Sharmila

Guest Posting @ Love2cook Malaysia is back after a hiatus! This time, it's not from a blogger but a fellow reader of mine, Ms Sharmila . We got to know on FB after she tried one of my recipes. I've always welcomed non-bloggers to send me their signature recipes and it's an honour for me to feature my readers and their recipes in my little space here. Without them, I'm no one in the blogosphere. Few weeks back, Sharmila tried my Spicy Caramel Chicken recipe and sent me the pics together with her Thannisaar and many readers asked for the recipe. I wanted to ask my Mom as I never made it on my own before. When Sharmila offered to share her recipe with my readers, I couldn't say no! And I will never say no! I really admire her kind heart and willingness to share the recipe with us, thus I invited her to make a guest post in my space, which she readily accepted. That's the spirit!!! For the very first time, a non-blogger is sharing her recipe on Love2cook Ma
