One more great weekend with the family which left me relaxed, comforting, happy, satisfied and much more ..... well let's just say that it made me feel so good and so thankful to Allah for a wonderful family that I have!!!! I hope and pray that this kind of happiness stays with us and everyone else, as well... Amen...
At times, I always wonder what is the purpose of this life... and its weekends like this that makes me realize that we are not in this world just to live, work, have family, and then die... we are here to make others happy, help others out, love each other, make everyone laugh, share our happiness and sorrows with others and much more... as they say, "Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live"....
Ok... enough of philosophy now... let's get back to real life... :)
My Dad came back from India last week and brought a lot of goodies with him... My Dad is big on giving gifts to others and I think this is one of his best qualities... resulting in him buying 12 Kgs of Mithais (Indian Sweet) from India for everyone at work and his close friends... He also bought some mouth watering savory snacks for us... Here are some snaps of what he brought from India...
Mansuri Halwa House - Pineapple Halwa
BansiLal Pedawala - Burfi
Refrigerator filled with Mithai Boxes
Coming to the today's recipe... The very first time I went on a date with my fiance (now husband - AG)... I had this Masala Papad as a starter... I instantly fell in love with it and it always reminds me of our good old days :)
- A quarter of Onion - finely chopped.
- A quarter of tomato - finely chopped
- 1/2 tsp chaat masala
- Two strings of fresh coriander - finely chopped.
Microwave the papad for about one minute (varies depending on microwave); Sprinkle onions, tomatoes, coriander and chaat masala; serve immediately!
I also put on some mehendi (my other passion besides food) over the weekend... Here are some snaps for you...
