Bcos iam away again and i didn’t keep up my promise to do the blog posts everyday…

But believe me i have a genuine reason for that lol…N number of assignments, presentations, quiz and term tests in between even now its still there…but i need a break atleast today and thats the reason i came here to get some solace…

i promise to do a whole blogothon after my exams and will also finish it fully :)

So how are you all out there? i read all of your posts but i reserve my comments for now…

Sometimes i think of getting a break after exams but in other ways i wish to take up a interesting job my kiddo now is growing and by the end of the course iam sure she can be independent and if at all i get a nice maid i can leave her for few hrs a day..previously i used to have nightmares thinking abt this..

My dh has suggested me to take up his freelance business which on and off he focus bcos he is busy travelling officially so he wants me to take over and run the business so that i will get my flexibility as well some challenging time for my brain…so i can also be at home when my kid comes home from school..after all thats what i want..but iam not sure whether i can successfully run his business as iam not from a background of business..iam doing info and communication majors which is a bit different from what he expects bu he has full trust on me as i can handle that single handedly..there will not be much stress but decision making is important and critical especially when he is away and even if he is in station, he cant spend much time in this but he loves it when someone can take the responsibility and run it as it gives very good returns

so he now jokes even before i finish my masters i ve a good managerial position for you..and you are out looking for other positions in the market in my lets see whats in store…i ve not decided anything as of now..

Thanks Bingo mom I was wondering what to write…but now im taking up this tag from you :) And will pass it on to others happily

What is the first dish that you cooked?


What is the first dish that you cooked for your better half? (If you are not married, you can tell us what you are planning to cook for him/her)?

Potato fry and it was a hit

Which food were you reserved to try first but then liked later it since you acquired the taste?

karela Punjabi style

What is your comfort food?

Always crispy dosa chutney

Which dish of yours you like the best?

Chai all time

Which dish of yours your family likes the best?

Pasta indian style

What is your favorite street food?

got a long list though…pani puri tops the list

pav bhaji, vada pav, aalo tikka chat, bread channa samosa chat, sev, dahi, bhel puris etc etc

Tell us about any of your kitchen disaster story?

Nothing serious maybe baking a cake

Any one or two food confessions ;-)

I love pani puri…if I go to restaurant I cant come without eating parathas..whoever thinks whatever I just don’t care..

Apart from basic stuff, like milk, yogurt, veggies what you have in your fridge or in pantry? (Name any 3 items)

Chilli paste, tamarind powder new addition

Any food related or cooking resolutions for this year?

need to be organised and make healthy cooking a routine

In our custom when you goto Kasi, you need to give up one of your favorite veggie and fruit. So you cannot eat that veggie or fruit from then on. Which one you would you give up? (It should be your favorite one)

Nope I would not prefer that idea

You need to prepare a 3 course meal for a party? What dishes will be there in your menu?

Jeera pulav, panner masala and pakodas with stuffed parathas

Im passing it to them whoever wants to take it :)

We went to shopping and after that we were damn hungry.. so we went to this place which was our first time visit called swad restaurant

OMG it was awesome and sooo good…that made us finger licking..

we gobbled up masala puris, aloo tikki chat, pani puri, paneer butter masala, pav bhaji in few time..

the waiter would have thought we never had all this before in our life..he he

me and my husband was seeing each other like we wasted all this while in spore without coming here

For all this menu we paid much less than normal

so we planned to go there regularly to have pani puris for sure lol

so next time go to swad and enjoy..

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 730 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 12 trips to carry that many people.
