A smile filled day :):):):):):))


Hiya Fellas  J
What!!!! Yeah yeah I do have a stupid grin plastered across my face coz I just ate my all time favorite  meal, Butterchicken with tandooor roti….



 PAPI!!!! I heard that vegetarians…. Am sorry if that has offended you guys in any way but it’s my all time fav meal, nothere reason for this Smile is just got a cal from my school buddy after 14 years, ok don’t beat me up, I know I always have these drastic n many years of separation before I meet my friends…. Na it’s not like that it’s just we at times get so carried away or go our separate paths that r quite demanding…..niways I don’t wana get all nostalgic but it’ a gr8 day to reunite wid friends who have seen me as I am, or rather was…. A girl wid two ponys, chubby, dancing in school shows, loosing temper during debates, panicking when the homework was not done…the stupid excuses to avoid that " Homework not done" remark in my calendar….that fastest run n longest sprint to reach before the school bell…that wada-pav n donuts in the canteen….. ironing the uniform n polishing shoes …my daily ritual…. The hard time waking up lil sis for school n the lost temper till she was finally ready….the every single day giggling n the every single night wishing I’d grow up n go to college where there would be no homework n no uniform…. That preparation for examz… long sleepless nights n sleepy afternoons…. Chowing down one chocolate after nother without bothering bout calories….being spoilt rotten by my grandpa n aunts by giving me anything n everything I asked for…which mostly was chocolate or colours J….. the meaning of world was….grandpa chocolates….games…puzzles…stickers….colours n my best friends…..:P those who share their chocolates wid me, that was a definition of a true friend :P….


…..I can go on n on but u fellas get the picture don’t ya J …. So all u reading this post, relive all the happy memories when u were in school n go do something crazy today… something exciting…..something fun…. You treat all ur loved ones it’s time you treated urself to ur favorite childhood delight…have fun!



Lotsa Love
Priya J

Heartfelt Feelings

Hi All,
Was just lying on my bed n feeling bad for hurting a special person and in just 5 mins composed these lines... felt like sharing 'em wid you coz they're straight from the heart.

A careless moment, a thoughtless action, a hurtful word or simply a silent treatment.....leaves us scarred, our beliefs charred, hope shaken, faith broken...Don't act in a way that will bring a tear, avoid hurting the one you call " My Dear"




Love,
Priya

Happy B'day Baba

Today is my Dad's B'day. Hez been my strength n my rock of gibralter. He has turned me into a very strong, independent woman n yes a good cook as well coz I've learned how to cook from my Baba :)

I came home late yesterday n was a lil upset since both my owens were unavailable and I bake a cake for everyone's b'day in the family. Also Dad hates cream cakes so I also didn't have an option to get a pretty cake from a nearby cake shop :( I came home quite late n thought of making one in the microvewave ( I don't like to cook in a microwave) I looked around for eggs n was dismayed since there were non, eggless keliye bhi na condence milk tha aur na ni cola drink, worst of worst I didn't even have butter :( but as the saying goes, fortune favors the brave, inspite of Dad telling me to chill n just rest after a hectic day I just so badly waned to bake atleast a tiny dryfruit cake for him.

When dad thought me to cook he said always understand the ingredients, how they will react with eachother. A good cook is the one who can understand how a dish will taste by understand the ingredients, once u understand that u'll never need a cook book ; ) so I decided to put his advice into practice n baked a cake in the following manner...

Wet Mixture

  1. 2cups Milk
  2. 1+1/4rh cup regular Sugar
  3. 2 Tsp Suji aka Rawa
I mixed all the above ingrediets in a Non-stickpan n gently let it cook n reduce on a very low flame.
Then after I achieved a mild cream colour n a thick mixture I added 2Tsp Ghee n 2 Tsp regular cooking Oil + half tsp Mixed Fruit essence n again mixed it throughly till the Oil was compleatly mixed with the batter.


Dry Mixture
  1. 1 cup Maida
  2. 2 Pinch Soda Bicarb
  3. 2 Tbs Cocoa Powder
Shift all the above ingredients with a strainer n then add Cashew n Rasins as per taste.Grease a microwave proof container, preferably glass one.
Mix the Dry n Wet ingredients together n pour into the greased bowl. Here I did not wait for the wet mixture to cool down, it was almost 12 na :)

Grill + Convection for 12 mins n walla! Your cake is ready :)



The best part was Dad loved the cake, did I mention hez a food critic, totally! so he needs every dish to be just perfect n my happiness knew no bonds when he said It is one of my best cakes :D



The cross section looked superb, cake was moist n cocoa n nuts tasted lovely together, due to Suji it was a bit granular n tasted like there was Khoya in it ;)


Happy Birthday Baba, Love U!

Your 
Sonu :) aka Priyanka
