Happy Mother’s Day
A few weeks back, I was thinking of my mum and obviously missing her tonnes. I wanted the approaching Mother’s Day to be less painful. Now don’t get me wrong my kids (from 3 now I have 5 🙂 ) all shower me with lots of love. I thought why not get some of my blogger friends to celebrate this day with me. Its amazing how much closer we all have become and most of us poured our hearts out and each ones recipe is somehow, somewhere connected to their mothers. I approached 25 and 19 responded with enthusiasm and sent heartfelt messages. So here’s what each of them shared for Mother’s Day.
My mum loved her Gujarati snacks like handvo, khandvi and her most favourite was matar kachori. Made with simple spices it was the yummiest snack. Patiently, she would make tonnes of these kachoris for our huge family. Missing you so much mum.

Rupal Patel thanks her mum
All mom’s are special and so is mine… My mom is my greatest teacher, a teacher of compassion, love and fearlessness. All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my mom. Children are the anchors that hold a mother to life. God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers. I remember my mom’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life… Thank you Mom to being my Mom:) Happy Mother’s Day to all…

Sujata Roy shares her thoughts on her mum:
‘I lost my mom 4 years ago. She is still with us in our minds and hearts. She was a very simple person and a bookworm. She loved to make different types of sweets.The list is too long. I remember when our house was filled with lovely aroma in the afternoon. My brother and I loved her malpua and gokul pithe the most. These delicacies made our mood festive. Not only do we miss her sweets but also her delicious food prepared without any onions or garlic’.
Amrita Iyer keeping in mind her mum’s favourite, strawberries and pomegranate juice made this swiss roll especially for her.

“The mother child bond is an eternal one; distance, time not even death can shake it’s rock solid existence and essence. My memories of my mother evokes feelings of contentment, safety and warmth.Its been twenty long years that I have been away from her but I always feel her comforting presence by my side. Even years after moving away from home, getting married, having children I always refer to my parents home as my home. My mom’s arms is a place that makes me feel carefree and childlike again. Home is where Mom is!!

“I have never seen someone quite like her. She’s fast, energetic, witty, funny…all in one. When other mums were pampering their kids, my mum was training me to be independent. Whenever I need advice I can go to her for an unbiased opinion.
