 Now watermelon season is everywhere. I often make juice or  lemonade with this. This time i tried to infuse the basil leaves to my regular watermelon lemonade recipe. I simply loved the delicate flavour of basil in the watermelon lemonade. Try this, you will enjoy!!.

Pomegranate, Orange and Basil Salad | Simple and Quick Salad recipe

Some days back in Bangalore there was heavy rain. It had rained heavily in the night and had stopped by morning. As usual i got up and opened my door to take the milk packets. It has just stopped raining. When i came near the gate to take the milk packets, i looked out and everything around me  looked so fresh and clean.  The trees, small garden in front of my house, my terrace garden looked even more green and sparkling. Then i took out my little gadget (camera ) and shot some pictures. When i was   coming down from my terrace i saw some little boys playing and enjoying in their own way. They saw me clicking photos of them, they invited their other little friends and wanted me to click the photos of all.

Mad Over Donuts - M.O.D {Food Tasting and Review}

  When i got an invite from Mad Over Donuts, i thought whether i should go or not. Because i never tasted donuts in my life and never thought of buying it even if i pass the outlet/store. I always thought it would be more sugary, rubbery, hard and very sweet. Then i had asked my friends +Lubna Karim  and +Satrupa dash , they said it will be soft and yummy and has less sweet. They also said try once you will love it.Finally i decided i will try donuts atleast once in my lifetime. And you know what, when i tasted it i completely gone mad over donuts.

Pan Roasted Chicken Strips

Roasted Chicken Strips
When ever i don't feel like cooking, it is my hubby who cooks for me. Mostly he cooks non vegetarian and Chinese food. This is one of his signature recipe which i like most. This is easy to make, very quick and if you have barbecue then this is the perfect recipe. As i don't have barbecue grill, i used dosa tawa and cooked it. It hardly took 8 min's to cook. Try this, you will surely love it.

Aloo Stuffed Bajra Paratha

I always try to incorporate millets in my diet. They are healthy and nutritious  So in today's recipe i have used bajra flour (pearl millet flour/ Kambu maavu in tamil) along with whole wheat flour and made stuffed parathas. I have used potatoes for the stuffing, instead you can use radish, broccoli etc.  as you wish. Serve this paratha with onion raitha or with your favorite gravy.
