Sorry to disappoint those who visited this blog for having a look at some yet another Sindhi Recipe. But trust me,you wont regret coming here after reading first half of this post(Though you will surely regret reading the later half)

Well , today i am here to share some good things with you.

Firstly, many of you had requested me for the recipe of Tahiri(tairi,taihri,sweet rice) , and due to my sheer laziness and my step motherly treatment to the sweet food, i was unable to share with you  the  favorite of so many Sindhis….A sweet rice.Though i had already Emailed many of you , its recipe ,today i am sharing a link with you,where you can find the recipe of this traditional Sweet rice

Dear Medhaa of Cook with love ,a sweet friend and a lovely lady,who happen to share my work (won’t call it load or burden) of blogging about Sindhi recipes,finally came up with this most awaited recipe of Taihri. So all of you ,who were waiting to feast your eyes ,on a lovely looking Taihri, just hop on to the following link


Now coming to other good things ,

Vidhas of Appetizing Recipes and Nithya of  A Culinary Odyssey , showered so many awards on me and my blog , that i no longer craved to play Holi with water lolz…..

Here they go,







Nithya  also tagged me for…  “25 things you have to say about yourself ”. Whooops….Well i don’t know whether i can say 25 things about myself(i have actually too many to say,but i don’t want  to scare away readers by showing my true colours….lolz…..

Lets see how far i can go..Ummm..

  1. I am very very outspoken and many times speak at the places and situations where i am actually supposed to shut up
  2. I hate hate hate hate politics and people who plays it
  3. I  am very impulsive,though had mellowed down to much extent after my kid was born,but still…..
  4. I am very lazy when it comes to cleaning closets, or in that case even those mundane chores like dusting and  keeping things at proper place….after i started blogging i am getting more and more clumsy
  5. I love spicy food,the food that brings  tears to my eyes( khushi aur spice ke aansoon) is stamped GOOD food by me and no,i cannot consider cornflakes and sandwiches as meals
  6. I cannot live without my Hubby(though at times i feel like running away from him….Talk about hypocrites dear…) , my adorable kid, good food, sound sleep and gallons of water
  7. I am a person who likes to rejoice thinking about pleasant memories of past and squeeze out some feelings of satisfaction and joy from the little things around me…could be as simple as drizzling rains , kids playing in park, my family eating like gluttons when i make something special for them, or even when i chanced upon some nice old favourite song of mine on Radio
  8. I like the flattering comments of the people on my blog,though many of them are not apt,i still love to live in wonderland where everything you do,is liked by people
  9. I really miss my college friends,wish i do meet them, bridging the gap ,and continuing from where we left
  10. I am a crazy fan of Paanipuri and i wish it was declared the Best Food Of the world and i hope silly that someday some scientists miraculously find something really healthy about these tangy thingieesssss
  11. I wish to learn baking, driving, Working Out,eating healthy, and grooming myself ( All these ,just in my thoughts….lolz)
  12. I like to watch movies in the cosy room of my home, with no one to disturb, no interruptions and no intermissions, some munchies(No popcorns plsss), and no kind of other botherations.But Alas,this haven’t been possible since last 11 years…..phew…
  13. Love listening to some cool songs (The New songs doesnt classify as cool songs,except ofcourse the rare few ).Again i like to listen those when there is no body around,coz i have this irritating habit of hummmming along loudly with every song,and poor souls around me( read Hubby ) have to move away or else take a painkiller to overcome the side effects (generally a headache) of listening to my songs…lolz
  14. I cannot stand Egoistic, rude , immodest , cruel, shrewd, Wealth exhibitionist,alcoholics  and those who spank kids or  abuse them
  15. I love to stare at the setting Sun or blinking stars, at some quiet place , where there aren’t any distractions like  Honking cars, smoking chimneys,chattering people, electronic gadgets around (i hate my cell beeping when i am at such places)
  16. I wish to go for a long vacation with my family, especially to a place with stunning greenery,  open fields, mesmerizing waterfalls, where my kid can run and hop around without fearing any corners to stop him,and where i am make to feel like a queen with all the great food,cooked and served,without me moving an inch towards Kitchen(And come to think of it,i am a food blogger…what a contrast !!).What about Hubby?? Well he can keep himself occupied with anything else but Laptop,ipod,or Cell phone(Hard life for him tsk tsk tsk)
  17. I wish i get my Inbox filled with loads of emails everyday, obviously with some kind comments, flattering praises,Nice blessings and casual chats from Fellow bloggers
  18. My biggest Need for the Day(or in that case for months to come) is learning HTML, java,php. etc. Coz it get frustrating to rely on my Hubby for all the mundane changes i need in the layout of my blog, and i hate hogging up his valuable time ,for getting the problems fixed.But to tell you all the truth is ,that no matter how hard i tried to follow the tutorials, all that i was able to learn is HOW TO WASTE YOUR TIME IN LEARNING AND STILL NOT LEARN ANYTHING…
  19. I love everything my mother cooks (i know that hold true for maximum of you), and i crave for so many foods that she used to make before my marriage
  20. I wish people could be more expressive, more tolerant, more approachable,without any airs around them, more sensitive,more Human
  21. I was almost Dead with shock when my hubby SMSed(grrrrrrr..) me that he likes the tea i make than what a Famous Restaurant served him.Alas that was the only praise i got from him(Now dear readers please don’t doubt my culinary abilities,i do cook decent enough, atleast it is more edible than what office canteens generally pass on as lunch/snacks)
  22. I am grateful to many bloggers around me,who had helped me a lot,inspired me a ton and had been around consoling me,cheering me and boosting my morale and confidence.Though  the list  could go on and on,still to name the few….Shilpa of Aayis recipes (she was the first blogger i interacted with,who also happen to enlighten me about wordpress etc),Srivalli,who had  been a great mediator to clear up some misunderstandings with fellow blogger,and who also was generous enough to provide her Blog space to a novice cook ..My BIL .Pooja ,at whose place i participated for the first time for an event,and even Won it.That was my first and the Only victory .Medhaa,who not only told me about TOI,but also created my Feed ,on my behalf. Sunshinemom...well the lady had went out of the way,umpteen number of times to help me out,and i can only say ….dear I owe you a lot….Then there are Soma and Sia,two wonderful ladies i love to interact with.Sia is probably the only one who tried and tasted a recipe from my blog and blogged about it,while chatting with soma is such a great fun
  23. I wish i never lose interest in food blogging and that this hobby of mine should get addictive day by day,year by year
  24. I love to interact with many many people, and it always feel great when somebody leaves feeling happy after interacting with me
  25. Finally i Thank all of you ,who actually read the above 24 ramblings and are still here ,reading 25th one.I appreciate your patience and kindness,and now kindly do me yet another favor and write something in comment box…a thing which most of you escape after reading my posts….lolz

Thanks Nithya, it was fun talking about myself, coz i hardly meet people who would like to know about me.So i seldom get any chance to babble about myself 😉

And i pass on these awards to the bloggers i mentioned above(Sia,Soma,srivalli,Medhaa,Shilpa,Sunshinemom,Pooja).Hope they will be kind enough to accept these

Ps:I am sorry,i forgot to tag you all also for 25 Things About yourself,so kindly if you can,do share at least few things about you,if not 25 🙂

  9. Dear Alka
    Well it was fun reading your post. You are a good writer too besides being a good cook.
    Baking is something I learnt from an early age so feel comfortable baking things. There are a few methods that you need to master and then basically you can bake anything. You can have fun with baking by changing the ingredients just like you change/substitute cooking ingredients… The earlier one learns something the more confident one gets in it over time.

    You will be surprised, its the making of a maani or more specically kneading the dough that I am not good at. Making Maani is the first thing that you used to learn in the past lols…

    take care
