Fresh Meat over Frozen Meat

Hello guys, how is the week so far? I am having a great week and a great stay in India. Really like everyone says there is no place like home and the perks of being a food blogger is that you can work from any where in the world. So today while my kiddo is enjoying her day with "Naani", I would like to pour my thoughts and information on " Why we should prefer Fresh Meat over Frozen Meat" and later, in the article I have mentioned about "Licious", a new Online Meat Delivery Portal that I have discovered.

Grand Snacks Pickles & Thokku

by Mahalakshmi (Mahi)

The Grand Snacks and Sweets is a very famous sweets and savory shop in Chennai. They specialize in South-Indian Sweet and Snack items. It is based in Adyar, Chennai and now, they have few franchises too!

The food prepared there is very fresh and hygienic and they taste yummy!  People used to buy this when they travel abroad as it is very convenient to mix with rice and eat. It gives a comfort feeling of having a home cooked meal. I bought it too, when I traveled here :)  I was so excited to find it in grocery stores in USA.
