    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -APRIL 2018 #87TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 25 I cannot believe that the mega blogging marathon is nearly getting over. However, that does not mean we can relax and breathe. I know already some of my fellow members have already started preparing for the September Mega Blogging Marathon. I still have to begin my search for the theme. For Day 25 the letter is Y. Not many options with Y.  I had youtiao from China in mind. It looks like churros but is not sweet and is served with congee or milk. As I didn’t want to repeat the country I had to cancel youtiao as I made xiao mi zhou  from China. After much thought…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -APRIL 2018 #87 BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 24 “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper” Finally it’s the day when I’ve come to the most difficult letter and that is X. Till 10 days ago I was still searching for a traditional breakfast recipe. Googling for foods beginning with X was not fruitful. Then I decided to try the other way round, googling for foods from each country. The only logic I used to google China was that is perhaps one of the few languages where X is used extensively. And hey presto like magic Xiao Mi Zhou appeared. Xiao Mi Zhou is a millet porridge that is common in…

      MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -APRIL 2018 #87TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 23 “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like Prince and Dine like a Pauper” When I was doing my research for W, waffles kept on popping in my head. I love waffles but surprisingly I still don’t own a waffle machine. A note to self “next buy a waffle machine”. I do come across various gadgets being sold on the local online sites but have been a bit skeptical to purchase anything online in Kenya. Whenever I’m in India I just love shopping online, Amazon and Big Basket mainly. When we were setting up our Bangalore home, most of the light fittings and furniture was bought online by my…

My first post at the new place and keeping my fingers crossed that all goes well. The team from CodeUnderscore, Bangalore has been very helpful in this transition. Thank you so much. Would like to thank my son Nikil for encouraging me to migrate. I was scared as I heard stories that content gets lost, connections fail, redirections don’t happen. But he encouraged me to take the leap. My biggest supporter, advisor and…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -APRIL 2018 #87TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 21 “Breakfast Like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper”    All who are following this Mega Marathon, did you even once question as to why I’ve not featured a breakfast dish from my own country Kenya? Go on admit you must have. You must be wondering that if she can feature an unheard of country like Tatarstan then why not Kenya. Well, I was waiting for the right moment. Letter U got filled in first when I was compiling my list. I have already got the recipe of Mamri (mahamri). on my blog which a very popular breakfast dish in the coastal area of…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -APRIL 2018 #87TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 20 “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper”    Do any of you have days when you just can’t get any good ideas for food styling? Do you look at the photos after a few days and think ‘what sort of picture have I taken?’ Or sometimes are you so pressed for time that you take pictures in a hurry and then later on realize they are so bad but now the food has gone down everyones tummy? That recently happened to me and now when I look at the picture, its so so bad. I have two options, either just use that…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON – APRIL 2018 #87 BLOGGING MARATHON THEME:EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 19 “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper” When Srivalli first suggested the themes for this Mega Blogging Marathon my mind was set on the breakfast theme. Little did I know that I would truly be exploring flavors from other countries and some from countries I’d not heard of like Tatarstan. At that time the only breakfast dishes that I could see were French Toast, different bakes, oatmeals, you know the usual Sunday brunch items.  When I decided to take on the challenge of making breakfast dishes from A-Z, that’s when a whole world of different breakfast dishes opened up. Today’s breakfast is…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON – APRIL 2018 #87 BLOGGING MARATHON  THEME: EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 18 “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper” Meeting old classmates after many many years can be either exciting and you just pick up where you left or it can be a disheartening experience. I’ve met a few of my classmates after a long time. With a couple after catching up with what’s transpired from the time we left school to the present, we remain friends but not best friends. With a few I’ve just chosen to not keep in touch as our opinions and lives are so different.  Today hubby met up with an old class mate of his after a…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON – APRIL 2018 #87 BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: EXPLORE THE FLAVORS  – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 17 “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper” If you’ve read my yesterday’s post, I had mentioned that I have to make idli sambhar for my Lions Club meeting. All went well, everyone enjoyed it. However, last night when I was grinding the rice and dal to make the batter, my blender jug broke. Literally the bottom bit crumbled into pieces, thanks to the salty water we get in our taps that over time the metal parts got rusted. I shouted to my hubby to get ready immediately so that we can make it to the only supermarket in town before it…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON – APRIL 2018 #87 BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: EXPLORE THE FLAVORS  – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 16 “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper”   As we’re fast approaching towards the end, a few of my recipes are not ready and am fighting for time to make them. I had an idea what I wanted to make but some got left undone as I went away on a family holiday. Now with daily routine, water issues, inviting guests over for dinners and tomorrow have to make idli sambhar for my Lions Club dinner (nearly 20 people), I’m yet to make my breakfast dish with Q.  The only way I can see myself making that tomorrow in between steaming idlis and simmering…
