    An Arty City – Montreal Street Art or Graffiti though mostly not legal in many countries, is art that is much appreciated by all. Its visual art created in public locations or places. Usually found on walls of buildings, sides of the highways, streets etc, usually in places where passers by can see it. It started as a form or way of expressing views on different matters to the public in general. Initially most artists used spray cans but today other medias are used like mosaic, stencil art, LED art, stickers, Lock ons (sculptures are attached to public furniture), wheat pasting used to make collages and papier mache. When you walk around Montreal City you will notice some sort of creativity be it paintings on…

    Happy Mother’s Day— Everyday should be Mother’s Day Poğaça are cheese and herb filled Turkish savoury bread or pastries. Bread if you’ve used yeast to make the dough and pastry if you’ve used baking powder or baking soda as the leavening agent. I wasn’t exactly planning on making this famous Turkish breakfast bread/pastry as my hunt on the wide web world was for flower shaped breads. Found quite a few, some simple and some complicated. It was during my search that my eyes fell on this beautiful shaped bread. It was a potato filled poğaça (pronounced as poh-ah-cha). This led to my research for this delicious Turkish breakfast or tea treat and got to know that the original usually has a cheese and herb filling.…

    GUEST NO.7 ON THE BLOG         My 7th guest is my dear little sister Sapna.  Sapna is one of those type of people who does not like to take sides when two people fight. She never sided with either of us when my brother and I used to fight. She is a very dependable person and can juggle a series of chores in a jiffy. I have not spent that much time with my sister but whatever time I have spent with her is memorable. I’m so lucky to have a sister with whom I can share all my joys and sadness, distance makes no difference. She immediately will know how I will feel and I will get a comforting message from…

    A satisfying beginning to the day    Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Breakfast is breaking a fast; a fast you undergo from the time you had dinner to the time you have breakfast. Importance of breakfast has been stressed by athletes, dietician, doctors, physical trainers. Breakfast provides the necessary fuel required for the brains and body after the overnight fast.

    Nutan Varsh Abhinandan ( Happy New Year) Today it’s New Year for the Gujarati community. Its also Govardhan Puja day. Back in Mombasa its the day when we dress up in new clothes and go temple hopping… yes you read right not bar hopping but temple hopping. We visit all the Hindu temples in Mombasa, meet friends, relatives and acquaintances. After that it’s lunch at Ajay’s foi’s house.

Its also the day when I prepare some prasadam for the ISKCON temple in Mombasa. Its the…

  • 523. Baked breaded mushrooms

    October 6, 2015mayurisjikoni

    Just too expensive We all understand that food prices are rising all the time. Sometimes its the scarcity or the petrol price. Whatever the reason may be we all are paying more for basic food. Last weekend My hubby and I went to one of our favourite restaurant to have lunch. Hubby usually orders fish and I stick to pasta(not many vegetarian options). For starters,we share the usual plate of breaded mushrooms. However, this time round we got only 6 button mushrooms on the plate. Previously we would get at least 10 – 12. On top of that the price had increased so basically for every breaded mushroom that went into out mouth,we had paid nearly 85c for it. All those living in the developed…

    Going all the way to Mexico Well not really, am at the moment sitting in London writing about a Mexican bread. Cemita originates from city and region of Puebla in Mexico. It refers to the bread as well as the sandwich itself. The bread bun or roll is made with flour, fat and egg and has sesame seeds on top. It has a brioche like texture, crispy on the outside and soft and spongy inside and slightly sweet. Found as street food in many cities and towns of  Mexico, as well as the streets of  New York and Los Angeles. The sandwich typically contains a white cheese, avocado,meat, onions, salsa and papalo herb. Papalo is very much similar to coriander. Some bakers added the herb…
