How do I make kadak pao like Crown Bakery in Mahim used to make, plus kheema that Regal Bakery in Byculla would prepare and Bread Pudding like the one I used to eat in town (either Churchgate or Fort not sure which).

Vividh Vani available in India? Are there English translations?


May 5, 2020, 6:51 am

No Keki. Reprint volumes are printed only in US. I have some recipes translated on this site. See vividh Vani category.

Thank you for the prompt reply. I have the pdf with me but would have been happier with a print copy. Request Amazon India to list it for purchase.

Hi Keki,

At the moment Amazon prints it only in USA, who knows India maybe next! Will keep requesting Amazon.IN

In the meantime, if you have friends in US, UK, DE, FR, ES, IT, JP, and CA. (USA, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Japan and Canada)
they can get the paperbacks for you.

Have you seen the volumes on our website ? Direct Link is

Keep in mind they are very large and thick and take up some space in the suitcase 🙂

Best regards and stay safe and stay healthy,

Hi Rita, in the first place – THANKS A MILLION for the great job that you are doing. Just a suggestion, if you have a section for “Gluten free”, how about another tab for “Sugar free” for partial Type B diabetics like me?


Jul 7, 2020, 9:13 am

Hi Rami,
The recipes/categories for “Gluten free” and “Sugar free” were already there, got hidden. It is a HUGE website!
I have placed them in the drop-down menu. Hope you can see them now.
Best regards,
