Pepper Chicken

Hi !!!

This is a very simple recipe which I learnt from one of my friends. The best thing about this recipe is its quick and doesn't require elaborate preparation.


Boneless chicken : 400 gms
Curd : enough to do the marination
Pepper - 2-3 tbl spoon
Salt : according to taste
Coconut milk : little more than 1/2 cup
Bay leaf  : 1-2
Cinnamon stick -1-2
Garlic : 2-3 teaspoon (finely chopped)
Green chillies : 2-3 finely chopped


Marinate the chicken with curd, pepper and salt and keep aside for 30-40 mins. Heat oil in a pan and add little bit of butter in it. Now add bay leaves, cinnamon sticks, green chillies and garlic. Saute for a while and add the marinated chicken. Mix well and let it simmer until the chicken is cooked completely. Now add the coconut milk and cook for few more minutes. Garnish with coriander leaves. This dish goes well with lacha/plain paranthas.

Do try out this recipe and let me know. I would love to get your feedback on the same.

Till then happy cooking !!!!!!

Papermache Painting

Hi !!!!!

I just hope that all my blogger friends and readers have not forgotten me as I have been out of picture for quite some time now.After coming back from the last rites ceremony I got busy with my kids re- admission for the new session. New books, uniforms, bags ............... the list goes on. Then when I finally, thought O.K now I can relax and do net surfing//blogging ,  wow, just then my son informed me that there is a system failure due to some virus and that I cannot use it until it gets repaired fully . 

Very disappointing, but couldn't help it so I took this time off to learn a new art form. Clay work has   always fascinated me, so I decided to learn the art of papermache clay making. This is a very simple cheap form for clay making whereby you recycle old newspapers and create beautiful artifacts.This is the painting that I learnt. This is basically a poster which I got fixed on the board. then I used the paper mache clay to give it a 3-d effect. The white portion that you can see in the pic below is all clay work.

This is how it looks after painting and decoration.

Today, is our 17th Marriage Anniversary, so I decided to to gift it to my husband. He knew I was going for some classes but had no idea that I had planned to gift him this painting, Thankfully he loved it very much and all my hard work for 10-15 days finally paid off.

And look what he gave me on my anniv.............................

a beautiful gold Ganesha pendent. Its very cute and sweet, but you know what this was not on my wish list. For some time now I have been after him to buy me a light weight sewing machine, and I had found my answer in Usha Janome. But then he said no, he will buy me something better than this, a better machine with more options. But finally, till now no machine has arrived so I think this is my final gift. Its not that I don't like the pendant, but its just that machine would have made my day complete fulfilling.

Still I have full faith in him, he will get it for me either today or tomorrow or maybe day after...............

Till then enjoy and have a nice time!!!!!
