Simple Indian Meal :-)

i know i have been away from blogosphere since past once month ,there were so many things which kept me busy ,but today i stole some minutes to write this post,
last month was preety hectic ,after reviving from viral fever  it was time to pack bags for the Hongkong

and Macau trip,

it was surprise for Advay as i had not told him anything about Disneyland .
Once we were back house chores and Advay kept me busy as his summer break was on,then planned some play dates for him,worked with him on summer break project which is scrap book on family members

thus you guys can imagine how busy i have  been and in midst of all this i felt homesick too as  i missed the  wedding ceremony which was held in June when i was travelling to Hongkong.
Now since Advay's summer break is over ,life is  back to normal ,but then i gonna miss all this ,
coming back to today's post sharing with you all this simple Indian Thali .This simple thali has

Lauki sabzi
