Colourful lids

PERSONALIZED YOUR LIDS
WITH A LITTLE 
CREATIVITY

Hello Dear Friends
Sure mostly of you busy with your 
Christmas preparations and enjoying cold weather too

I don't know "What" but I am busy with some
unknown reasons...
I think you understand that
look busy and do nothing...
Sometime it happens, I think mentally I am in planning
of going Karachi to attend the wedding ceremony of 
my youngest brother... In fact waiting eagerly for that...

I love to collect empty jams and different glass jars for some other uses...
My son always said Mama is more interested 
in the bottles rather than what is in it...
And really it is true ...

So my today's post is about to personalized
the lids of your empty jars

Dahi Barey

TRADITIONAL FRIED LENTIL 
DUMPLINGS IN YOGURT



Today I am here with a typical traditional dish named
Dahi Barey

Dahi means Yogurt and 
Barey are the fried dumplings of two lentils ...
They are Tea Time treat and
you can freeze them after frying for around a month ...
Very easy to serve if you have some unexpected guests at any time
Just put them in hot water for 5 minutes and 
press a little that excess water drain out  and dip them in yogurt ...

Hello dear friends....

I was bit busy from last month or so and that's why 
my weekly posts are also bit delayed as per normal routine..

Eid ul Fitar is the gift from God for all those 
who fast the whole month only on the name of God...
Its a religious festival and continues three days...

On this Eid I want to make some changes in my dining room...
like I stitched a new table cloth and a runner for my buffet table..
