My grandmother left me all of her recipes when she passed on recently and I've been having a blast going through them. Most date from the 50's and '60s time period and she was fond of international cuisine when international cuisine was not really invogue. As I find recipes I think people would be interested in, I will post for all to use like this one from a newspaper clipping from Bombay (Mumbai), India.
