Some random musings and Prawn Curry

Its been so long since i updated this space of mine,
had been to this place  for few days,..-)
now that i am back relaxed and rejuvenated
thought of sharing with you all my ramblings
what went in march -
celebrated 3 yrs of blogging with Cappucino cupcakes with Baileys Frosting
learnt to prepare Ghujia on my own ( when u prepare alone then u know )
tried something from my Nanis Kitchen - Aloo Kachodi
finally i have my own herb garden :-)
tried sewing and this is what i stitched
Whenever i go for break,after coming backs it takes one or two days for me to come back to the normal routine,does this happens with just me or with everyone else i dont know ,yesterday tried to prepare this simple prawn curry,i am very bad with seafood,so i didnt want to add to many ingredients,this curry is very simple and gets prepared in jiffy,i never thought this one would be delicious but when hubby told the curry was really good i thought of sharing with you all,..btw  i prepared this one when i was in no mood to cook,had to cook something to eat thus you guys can understand :-)
