And how big line and waiting it can be but still we all frnz use to wait for our turn to come and use to chit chat there till then. Thats really very amazing moments in my life.

I generally do this by adding it to veggies like bottle gourd, ridge gourd, with any leafy curry, brinjal and so on.

  • Heat oil in a pan, add the marinated prawns and keep the lid. Water comes out from it and let it cook till all the water coming out of it evaporates and taske aside into a bowl.

Tandoori Aalo

I always wonder why am i doing so many specials with non veg as a main ingredient. But what happens to people who is purely a vegetarian. What does they do??? I wonder what all specials can we make with veggies same as non veg. Then when im discussing this with my hubby he said that, he dont what is the recipe but he once ate some aloo curry looked like a whole aloo made into some fry and its very spicy and tasty. These are the things he said that day and told me to try it. I once tried it like normal fry when i got the baby potatoes one day. But when he ate that he said that its not matching the taste that he had it that day. So then again my thinking process started of how to make it??? One day when i got the idea of making veggie dish as non veg recipe process then i thought of doing it with Aloo again. Then i tried this recipe and its a big hit and he said that this is the one he had long back and this is the taste he is expecting for.....At last im so happy for the successful dish by me which he is asking me from long time. And being a pure veggie item with a non veg touch i gave it a name "Tandoori Aloo".

Ingredients :-

Aloo - 8 (as small as possible)
Onions - 2 (small)
Chillis - 4 to 5
Chilli powder - 1tsp
Turmeric - 1/2 tsp
Red Color - pinch (optional)
Coriander - few leaves finely chopped
Curd - 1/2 small cup
Oil - 3to4 tsp
Garam Masala - 2tsp
Salt to taste

Procedure :-

  • Potatoes boiled and peel the skin and keep them aside.
  • In a blender add onions and grind it little bit (not to a paste but have to see the some flakes too) and then add the green chillis, salt and grind it again and add this paste to the boiled aloo and keep it aside.
  • Add all the other ingredients to the potatoes except coriander and curd and mix well.
  • Heat oil in a pan and add these potatoes to it and saute it frequently at regular intervals to avoid blackening.
  • When it is turning its color to dark brown color add the curd and fry it till all the curd evaporates from it.
  • Finish it off with coriander and serve it with rice. (not only with rice but can have it as an appetizer too).

Answer of a CEO and a video which is really Inspiring...

Hello friends.... I always love to hear some inspiring stories from my frnz and will try to memorize when i feel like. May be all the stories will not effect us but at least knowing is always better i feel. So that may be in future in circumstances when we are in some critical situations these stories may help us to be bold enough and take some decisions. So when Yesterday i got a mail and i liked it a lot and inspired me a lot so would love to share with u all.... This is really very inspiring and a gr8 message conveyed at the end which is not just true but the fact with everyone...Frankly telling its true for me at times when i give excuses for the things that im not that successful... :)
So Here it goes....

Last year an occasion where a very successful company's CEO was speaking in a seminar…
he was repeatedly trying to convey a message to all the students of prestigious college…
"What you do is not an important thing… How well you do your work is more important… that is what defines your success"

Many of the students raised queries regarding the same statement… as some of these students were not convinced with this statement.

The students said… only some professions are chosen ones.
Some students said… they only wanted to chose what they think is a great career ahead.
Some… wanted to say… only if it is a good company… they will join it… because that is what will give them a better tomorrow.

CEO was not able to understand how to convince the students that… it is their hard work that counts and not any other factor… that can take to fame.

He wanted to tell them… some people land up in the place they want to be… some people have to accept what they are doing…

But… no matter what you are doing… it is only how well you do the task… matters in the end.

He thought for a while… and immediately…
… told all the students… that he has a picture to mail them…
That will explain to them… what exactly he wanted to convey in his message…
he took all the emails… and then immediately that night…
emailed them this photograph… which tell every one what was in his mind.

TRUE… you give your best to whatever you do…
You will get the best out of it.

See the picture for yourself if I was mistaken, this is a photo of a name that no one forgets (atleast no one among the one's who know this game)

You should deserve… Before you desire
...Jonty Rhodes
He was a national hockey player and hockey was his passion
He was the hockey goal keeper for south african team.
He had to chose cricket because he was forced to do so…

Will that stop him from reaching to fame???NEVER!

He is the best… and people only know him as the best.

Moral : Dont ruin your career giving your self excuses that perhaps this is not where you wanted to land up.Try to focuss and enhance your capabilities in whatever you have in front of yourself.

And We give so many excuses about ourselves for such small things too. But after seeing this video that really made me think of myself once. If we are really not able to do by having evrythng in life then what about ppl who has something lagging in thier life and still they are successful. I hope it will touch ur hearts too and make u all to think for a while... Truly Inspiring and Heart Touching video... Also watch the video "To all of you who feel like giving up".

When it comes to cooking, my hubby is not that much passionate about it as many others. But frankly to say about him he really helps me a lot while cooking. When his frnz come home they alwaz say abt Raj that he is a very good cook and does very well when they use to stay as bachelors. They always ask me have i ever tasted his superb dishes.

There are many surprises on that day and one among them is this breakfast in the mrng. May be its such a small thing to say but i felt so happy for that as its for the first time he is cooking for me without my interest or forcing. It's the little things in life, That brings the greatest happiness. One among such is this.
He does it so many times but may be its like helping me or like when i say the procedure he does it. But this time its all came from his care affection and love. That touched me a lot and im very glad to say that it came out really good.
