  1. Mama can u please send your email address. I am an Indian living in Malaysia. I need to ask some questions about malaysian cooking. I would be thankful if you could help me. I love your website so much. Can u send some recipes using blended rice flour? I accidentally got a pack of blended rice flour to try an Indian recipe. But it didnt come out well. so if you could please send me some recipes using blended rice flour i would be thankful to you.

    thank you

    Thank you for visiting both my websites. I'm glad you like them. I hope you like Malaysia as well. About my email address, I'm sorry, I do not publish my email address in the webpages. Kindly leave yours and I'll get back to you, insyaAllah. As for the rice flour recipe, as I've replied in my fotopage, there are lots of Malaysian kuih that you can do with it. You'll have to browse in the internet for the recipes in English. But if you can understand Bahasa Malaysia, then the chances of getting the recipe is bigger. Anyway, I will try to help you where ever I can and if time permits ya...Thanks again!
