Instant Khaman

Khaman is Gujarati dish. A famous breakfast which is normally used for trolling Gujarati community but whoever has tasted it, swears by it's tangy and sweet taste.

Though born and brought up in Gujarat, I never tried making Khaman. Hailing from Mathura by ancestral origin we preferred Mathura style breakfast at home. but after I got married , I felt like learning Khaman and other Gujarati breakfast items as my husband loved Khaman. It was not possible for me to get khaman from outside everytime he craved for it so I tightened the belt and decided to learn it.

Khaman is such a thing that needs proper attention and quantity of ingredients. If you miss a thing then it would turn into disaster. Trust me, I have become expert n Khman making but it has coasted me several disastrous experiences. Many times it turned soggy, many times didn't rise at all etc etc.
After many experiments now I can make perfect khaman. So  am sharing my recipe of Khaman here that needs few ingredients.


Rajma Tikki

World's shortest horror story?? DIETING.
Yeah, this would be definitely a horror story for a person who's foodie. Who can't pass a single day without tasty and tastebuds teasing food. Just like me. Due to pregnancy, laziness and lifestyle I gained too much weight in past two years. After realizing that I needed to shed many kilos to get back in former shape and for that I joined gym. After joining gym I realized that only exercise would do nothing, i also needed to go on a diet.
Being a foodie it was impossible for me to stay away from yummilicious and tasty food so I decided to give my diet food a tasty twist and here is one of them. Rajma Tikki.
The moment tikki word appears , the crispy, round, soft, loaded with chutneys, curd and onions and tomatoes, garnished with coriander Tikkis start dancing in front of our eyes.
To stop my craving for those tasty but full of unhealthy calories I made this Rajma Tikkis. So here goes the recipe.

Journey from either wicked OR loving mother-in-law To caring and loving mummyji.

Hey guys, every time I blog for Mommy I feel like I’m breathing again. Breathing again in world of imagination and feelings. This time Bloggers Reviews India and Bigsmall has provided me an opportunity to pay gratitude to my mother-in- law, who is the world’s best Mom-in-law. The activity is about Mother but trust me my mother -in-law is so loving and caring that I actually believe her to be my real mommy. My mother-in-law and my relationship is just like of Karishma Kapoor and her mother-in-law from Dulhan Hum Le Jayenge. Where she believed her mother-in-law to be typical one who would torture her to death but in reality she is loving and caring who loves her just as her own daughter.

 I call her Mummyji. From childhood every girl is hammered with taunts like “ Esi saas milegi ke teri akkal thikane la degi, aagey ja, saas itna kaam karvayegi ke teri sari akad utar jayegi.” I, too was hammered with these words by my mummy and elder sister whenever they lost their temper. I like a commo…

Our Space Adventures with Colgate

Every time I write a blogpost for Blogadda I feel alive. This time Blogadda has brought wonderful activity for bloggers as well as kids in collaboration with Colgate.

After registration and selection I informed my neighbor's children who are 5 and 8 years old about the activity as my own daughter is just one and half. Before I received the packs I already told them that I would be receiving packs of colgate with space adventures characters inside it. Both of them got highly excited when they came to know that they were supposed to write a story based on those characters.

As I received the packs I called them and under my assistance they cut out all the characters and started thinking about the story. Children's names are Shayan and Ashida. Being typical siblings both of them couldn't agree on any of the story as one would simply dislike another's idea. It seemed that soon my house would turn into WWIV's battleground. So I took situation under my control and decid…

Our Wonderful trip to Kerala thanks to Makemytrip

After arrival of our darling daughter Jisha in our life, we rarely got chance to travel and explore new places. Jisha is just 1 year old but due to bed rest I had been house-arrest from last 2 years. But as everyone knows every wife has her own personal Jinny, who’s named as husband in dictionary. :P :P :Pin the same way my husband knew my frustration for being at home all the time, he started planning a trip. Our anniversary is on 10th December. Like every wife I keep bugging dear hubby about anniversary plans throughout year but this time he didn’t let me know anything about the plans.  So I was bit frustrated with him.
But just before 15 days, he took me to mall and told me, hey dear, we are going  to Kerala for a week and obviously you will need new clothes for this trip. So have this card and start shopping. Wohooooo, yeah, this was my reaction and crazily I went on shopping spree. As my husband declared that we are going for trip I was bit worried about the trip organizer. but …
