Sauted Onion Raita....

I was introduced to this wonderful raita by my very good friend Shalu. She is a gem of a person. Everytime we go to her home, she makes sure that we have atleast one meal before we meal. Love her hospitality and sweetness :)

One day as usual when she made dinner for us.... she cooked an awesome biryani with this sidedish. It was very new to me. Me and my hubby loved it so much that we almost finished the entire bowl. I know my friend wont mind at all :) Its so simple to make and is liked by everyone too

Aamla di Paani...

Landed in my country after a long time and after very long jetlag days we started going out to meet friends and relatives. We went to my sisters place last week. When we reached there I was really exhausted. The heat and noise of traffic had made me really tired. 

The moment I was in her house , I was looking in the fridge for something refreshing to drink when my eyes caught a glimpse of a tupperware bottle filled with something. I asked my akka what was it and she said "Dont ask me but do try it". She served me a chilled glass which i gulped in secs. So refreshing, so light and so yummy that i could not resist asking for another glass to which she smiled ans said "Now that means its yummy???" I was so impressed that my tastebuds hit my brain buttons which in turn made my mouth utter "Recipe plsssssssssssssssss....."

 So here you go for a very very simple way to refresh yourself.
