chicken do pyaza curry for cold winter nights

How you feel when the temperature is too low its snowing and food is still to be cooked in the kitchen I was caught in a similar situation few days back

then I was filled with memories of this simple curry which would be prepared at home sometime that time I was too young to ask the recipe or be curious what all is being added to the curry so this one is my own interpretation of how to prepare Chicken do pyaza
Chicken do pyaza

Recipe name Chicken Do Pyaza

Garlic clove three chopped
Ginger grated one tbsp.
Bay leaves crushed two

Followed by bay leaves ,clove,cardamom,cinnamon
Pepper,kababchini after a minute add chopped garlic & ginger

Till the onion is brown & tender

on being Global Citizen - Letter 10 for Advay

Dear Advay,
Few weeks back you got your journal from school.I liked the way you had expressed yourself in  your class assignments but when I saw the GLOBAL CITIZEN passport in your folder I was awestruck because this was something really beautiful I wanted to read it again & again .I wish everyone could understand this simple thing that we all are GLOBAL CITIZEN

.There were some beautiful quotes there in the passport all meaning the same that we don't belong to a single country but to the whole world

.I know what I am trying to share is big for you maybe you will understand when you grow up.
That's all for now
Lots love
