Chicken Kathi Roll

I was surprised to see that my last post was 20th June!!! My laptop has some issues and the page does not load completely which does not allow me to post a post... :)   The ipad is complicated when it comes to such things.  But honestly my hands have been itching to write and I sit down to do so

So much is pending to share...some good and some sad.

I will start with the sad.  A bustling high end Mall was blatantly attacked by heavily loaded terrorists, who brutally killed all who came their way. 62 people lost their lives, 175 people injured... These are just civilians.  Apart from this 3 security personnel killed and many injured.  Not to mention, that 7 out of those terrorists were killed too, but I feel that the were prepared to die.  4 days people like us who suffered thinking that  we could have been one of those who were directly affected, spent the time in front of television sets waiting for the ordeal to end.  It was sad, just to know how mercilessly the hostages were being treated inside and how even small children were killed heartlessly.  Made me think, what will the world end at???? We can just pray for peace around the world.  

Now for the good news... I have seen blog awards being passed on from one blogger to another and I have longed to have one.  And the lovely Sona of Sona's Quick Pick just made my dream come true.  She gave me not one but two blog awards.  Thank you sooooo much my friend

Secondly,  my move to a new country brought into my life my greatest achievement.  It started with the desire to
do something I have always loved to do - cook.  Getting into the food business has been my dream and get

It saddens to hear about such terrible incidents which has happened. Btw, its a wonderful roll stuffed with equally interesting ingredients.
