Imitation is the best form of Flattery

        Please see the photo below from Kumudam Snehidi's supplementary dated Jan 16-31,2012. See my recipe and photo of Pepper Rice. It seems that Kumudham Snehidhi has taken my recipe, made a few changes and published it with my photo. I would have been more happier if I have been credited as well.

       The original recipe is here.
