Gulab Jamuns wit a twist

Now traditionally we make gulab jamuns out of a packet or using flour.

This is the invention of a bored mother and daughter who had no idea how to spend a lazy Saturday afternoon.

What you need:

Bread-10 slices

Milk-50 ml (just an estimate-to make the dough)

Salt -a pinch

Oil for deep frying

Cardamom powder- 1-2 tsp

Rose essence-a few drops

Sugar-1 cup + 1 tbsp

Water- 2 cups

What do you do:

Dissolve sugar in the water . Add cardamom powder and boil till it reaches a syrupy consistency. Add the essence and take off the fire.

Make a dough with bread, milk, salt and 1 tbsp sugar. Make little balls and deep fry them in oil till brown and crisp. Drop them while hot into the sugar syrup. Serve hot or cold

The Simple things

This is one of my first poems that I shared with my friends…they loved it so much…now I’m sharing this with you…hope you like it:)

Its not the bigger things that count

You might buy me expensive jewelry

But I would rather

Share a moment with you

Watching the setting sun

It’s the simple things about you

That I count as treasures

A smile as I wake you up

Yawning and stretching

The kisses at odd times

The way you brush away my tears

Your voice with a hint of a laugh

As you see me pout

The mischievous winks and smiles

When nobody’s watching

The way you creep up

and hug me as I cook

The silly little arguments

The silence as we walk by the beach

Just the two of us

In our very own world

Together today and for eternity

I hold you close

N lean upon u

I feel d weight

of ur head on mine

The thump of ur heart

Against my ear

I look into ur eyes

As u whisper In my ear

And I feel myself

Falling in love

all over again

A rainy day…

my hand at photography...

Sitting on the roof top

Pondering my words

Hoping that inspiration would strike

But all that struck

Was the beat of the rain

Still I welcomed the respite

From the heat of the day

The air cools

And the wind whips droplets

onto my face

People scramble

To get away from the rain

As I drag my feet

Reluctant to move away

The wives pull in

The clothes left out to dry

Kids hop down the bus

To splash in the puddles

I take in the earthy wet smell

The sky looks so beautiful

Stormy yet strangely still….

A glimpse of heaven

A week ago:

It was evening and mum and i went upstairs to take the clothes,which had been  hung out to dry on the line. but this is what we spent half an hour admiring

what does it look like????

the light shining down...

Cap on a cloud...

the vibgyor...

the silver lining to being stuck at home with nothing to do is that i’ve started appreciating the finer points of nature…very zen!!!

Steals my breath away

When you put your arms around me

And look deep into my face

My pulse starts to race

Just as the sight of you

Steals  my breath away

I ponder the words you say to me

But I can see

That’s not all you wished to say

Your warm breath

As you whisper in my ear

Takes the chill away

I keep thinking of you

Every moment that you’re away

I’ve opened my heart

And welcomed you to stay

Now all you have to do

Is just be here to make my day

To love and be loved…Dramatic sigh

I know ur colors blue
You love ur muddy shoes
Ice cream on a cold rainy day
Cricket matches in the summer
N piping hot tea in the winter
Night out after a long day at work…
Ur eyes are brown
Like warm honey when you laugh
And a deep amber wen ur angry
I love the way you frown
Wen I turn naughty
The tiny wrinkles on ur forehead
The way ur hair falls into ur eyes
N ur grin as u flick them away
I love the way
U laugh me out of my tears
I love the long rides on ur bike at night
The splashing in the rain
The soft candlelight of our dinners
Ur off key serenades
And ur voice
Is the best music I’ve ever heard
I adore the way ur face lights up
At something new that I do
I cant go a day
Without seeing ur eyes glitter
With a million things u wanna say
I’m incomplete
Without u holding me close
Dancing and swaying
To the song on the radio
I love d lil surprises
The spark of ur anger
The cuddling
And those annoying habits of urs
There’s none I cud love more than u
Ur not perfect…but ur my imperfect
And tats all that matters in the end
