  1. hi Manjula,
    I love your recipes! Thank you so much for taking the time to post. I cook for a Buddhist retreat center in Berkeley CA. I cook lunch for 30-40 people on Fridays and mostly use your recipes, I have to multiply by a lot which can be tricky. I would love to make this kale salad, but am not familiar with making ginger juice. I read in other comments that you simply shred and squeeze. My question is how much, in lbs, ginger will i need to make a 1/4 cup of ginger juice? I never did this before, do you think shredding with a food processor will work?
    thanks for all of your love!

  2. Dear Manjula
    may I ask you, make fresh or Raw Jack fruit curry.
    recently I have been in Sri lanka, I ate jack fruit curry.
    I never like jack fruit but curry was beautiful, and your cooking recipes are excellent.

    many thnks sholeh
