Vidhya, two things. Firstly, for every recipe, at the end, mention with which item the food goes the best. For example, 'this dish goes well with rice' or 'this dish is best taken with roti' - something like this. We Indians have some idea but then, the non-Indians need guidance.
Secondly, (it is just my thought), at the end of each recipe, why don't you give a tip of the day (related to kitchen). For example, go to www.indiarasoi.blogspot.com and you will know what I mean.
