Dear Advay,                                                                                                       17/12/14
Yesterday I was really happy ,had long day at disposal so planned lot to do but when I reached home after dropping you at school and read the news I was shattered ,here I had been cribbing with your papa  that you can go alone to school you are  big enough  but what happened yesterday changed me . I don't think twice about dropping and picking you even the taught that you can go alone to school scares me now ,my hearts goes out to all those parents who lost their children God please give them strength .Ya Advay this incident touched my soul and changed me showed me how wrong I was and how right your father was .Now you won't hear muumy giving justification that you can travel alone in the public bus .Yes Advay  your mother changed after the 16th December Peshawar attack.
Please forgive your mother, you are too precious for me .
With lots of love

of new year resolutions and gazar ka halwa

Thanks to Whats app and Skype I get to see everyday what's being cooked at home in India after hearing umpteen times about Gazar ka Halwa
Gazar halwa

 a delicacy mostly prepared during winters in North India thought of preparing the same in Lyon .It takes some three hours to prepare it but its worth it one spoon of halwa and I felt closer to home such is the magic of food cooked at home with lots of love and patience .Thanks to my sisters for repeatedly telling me we are eating halwa or sending me pics on whtsapp we wouldn't have prepared this .As the halwa can be kept in fridge for days the best way to eat is warm by warming it up in half tap of ghee served garnished with chopped dry fruits .

Recipe blogged here at AsanKhana
Every year I share my resolutions
This year its going to be
And there's wish for you all too
