Meet Shobhana Chetty, also known as Shobha by friends and family. We have known each other for many decades and our husbands are first cousins. We are now grandparents as well.
Shobha is a school teacher and has been living in New South Wales, Australia, for several years, having emigrated from South Africa. She has always had excellent taste in home decor and her skills as a cook are well known.
When I was just a fledgling cook, Shobha turned out the the most delicious & impressive looking food, be it the main meal, desserts or cookies. That is why I was so glad that Shobha submitted some of her recipes for publication.
We feature a few of Shobha's recipes. Some of them are for large amounts, so adjust the recipes to suit the quantities that work best for you. A few of the the measures are in kilograms, a kilo is equal to 2.2 pounds. Here is a link where you can easily convert kilograms to pounds and vice-versa. Convert Kilograms and Pounds
The recipe for Pumpkin Soup has many rich ingredients like cream, butter and full cream milk. I am sure it will be okay to indulge in this soup occasionally or make it for a special event. Here is Shobha's recipe for Spicy Pumpkin Soup.
