     Sushma’s Authentic Food Delights is a food blog that I admire and follow since I started blogging. I was supposed to request a guest post for my 50th post, but somehow it was postponed and so I didn’t want to miss a special 75th post. Sushma was one of the first persons who regularly visited my blog. If you are looking for some quick, simple and tasty Indo –Chinese recipes or some authentic Indian recipes, then you should visit her blog, Authentic Food Delights. It is gem of a blog with the best recipes in the blogosphere! So please welcome Sushma to share her wonderful recipe  as a 75th post on my blog !! This is Sush in her own words -
     When SE asked me to do a guest post, I easily accepted to do one. SE is a close friend of mine and love the blog as it has some of the unique dishes that are posted. Here is one of my favorite recipes and celebrating SE’s 75th post with a Vanilla Sponge Cake !!!
