How you enlightened me about speed dating - open letter for Advay 15

Dear Advay,
Wanted to write this letter long back but couldn't because since past few days life has been very busy you know this .

Today thought of putting down in words what was in my mind since long. This letter is about the day when you enlightened me about speed dating in the bus .Conversation started like this I asked you about your study log submission and you said that it was not done the normal way but by speed dating . On hearing this I was shocked then to bring back my composure you told me that its not that speed dating its a different one I was more shocked because I never imagined that you would know the meaning of dating maybe your teacher told you while explaining you tried to explain me but still I couldn't understand then I asked your classmates mom if she knew and the she told that its a term given to a different kind of presentation .Then you told me that's wnt you were trying to explain me .This was different experience for me so wanted to trap it in my memories so can read  this sweet letter again & again thanks for enlightening me with the term Speed Dating.
Wish you lots of happiness

Alloo Tikiya Burger for picnic at Lake Annecy

This post is about those days when there was no Mc Donalds in India ya being born in eighties had its own advantages and disadvantages but for me when I look back I feel more advantages because Advay will never know what kind of childhood we had, those colourful days wont come back I know but still I try to relive those bygone days by doing things which remind me of the time gone.
Last weekend we had gone to lake Annecy for day trip ,thought of packing small picnic which we could carry and the first one on my mind was Potato patties Burger.

When we were kids street food was delicacy for us apart from dosa and chaat items which were the normal one for us we were introduced to burger ,noodles and pizza in the later years and that's how I got to know my first lesson in food that apart from Indian Cuisine there are other cuisine too you guys can imagine as there was no internet that time anyways coming back to the post
Sharing with you all recipe for Potato Patties Burger or Alloo Tikiya Burger

Instead of alloo tikiya chicken shami kebab can be used as filling too.

sorry for weighing you down with my expectations - open letter 14 for Advay

Dear Advay ,
Last week I attended the class assembly in your school. One day before I had asked you whether you doing something or not and you told me its going to be a surprise .When the assembly started I saw you running around managing the stage ,helping your friends and moving chair and other things you were quiet involved in everything .I was amazed because at home if I ask you to help me just to make you a bit responsible your answer is very rare yes so yes I really felt good that at school you are a responsible boy . You know what I used to wonder why your teachers praise you so much whenever there's a parents teachers meet know after seeing your behaviour in school I know what they were trying to convey me .I feel maybe I am too hard on you maybe later you wont be the same and I should just let you be the kid which you are as your fathers says "you are just a kid." So sorry for putting the weight of my expectation on you this wont happen again ,

Sharing a pic of the books which you reading now & ya now I know from where you learn all such weird expressions ,keep reading son
Lots of love

Weekend Cooking Makhmali Lamb Curry

I don't know whether you remember the chicken curry which I had cooked a month back to please my son well this recipe is the same the only difference is that I have cooked the curry with lamb meat.and so the name Makhmali Lamb Curry

Cook this one for family or for guests this one tastes yum with chapathi or rice.
We prefer to eat this kind of meal on weekends as we all slow down those two days no rushing out for class, no pick up drop enough time to sit back and enjoy the day .
That's all friends wish you all happy week ahead
