Relishing on season’s best produce, I made Sem ki Phalli-Tamatar ki Sabzi, a very nutritious recipe that goes with rice or roti…..Then a magical moment of my life….got a chance to e-mail interview ‘Kate Bracks’, winner of 2011 Master Chef Australia…

‘30 days-30 bloggers-30 posts’….in which I posted Dahi Vada, Tandoori Fried Chicken & Fruit and Cream Trifle. Homemade Garam Masala was added attraction of this month. The sudden dismissal of my dear grand mom made me soulless; she was my friend, my guardian, my strength beneath the wings…. May Allah SWT grant her Jannah tul Fidrous Ameen.
