Let’s do something different this time… I have come up with an idea to post a quiz along with a recipe!!! And you gotta reply all these questions in comment section with the 1st answer that comes to your mind :P
I enjoy each silly simple thing… That makes me happy! And so I feel I should ask you the same silly questions… There is no better way to know my foodie-friends… :) Your questions are (unfortunately, I don’t offer 4 options like AB does):
- Last thing you got compliments for?

Now, coming back to recipe of the day! A glass of super refreshing, digestive and delicious appetizer – “Jaljeera“. It helps you stay lively in scorching heat of summer!!!
Back in India, I had it several times at ‘Kankaria Lake’ where the street-vendors are used to keep it in a big clay-pot (matka)! It helps keeping it cool but refrigerator isn’t a bad option to try it at home… It’s really so quick!
