International Chef in the making...

A child coming into your life turns it into an overdrive, that you hardly tend to find time for yourself. So I have been off the blog for quite a while now. My toddler is still a handful, but 2 years of being a parent has given me enough experience to juggle around my various roles and still find time to keep in touch. But yes, my social life has taken a back seat and I do not keep in touch with people as I used to. We are back in the US again, in the East Coast in a laid-back seashore town named Groton in Connecticut state.

Now that I am a full-time home maker and have more time to kill than I would have had if I were working, I decided to try something different atleast as far as the food goes and was pretty impressed with its outcome.

There is a saying that the best way to a man's heart is through his stomach.... But as I had already won my man's heart and only then married him, there was never a need for me to go in the way suggested by the saying. Still there is nothing wrong in surprising him once in a while with my culnery skills. I tried out 4 new dishes last week:

Broiled Tomato Parmasean

Tomato Pasta

Vegetable Manchurian

Baby Corn Manchurian

Unfortunately, I did not take a picture of the first two dishes... But I did take a picture of the Manchurian dishes, that we had with Egg Fried Rice prepared by my husband.

The first dish was courtsey Food Network (one of the TV channels in USA) while the remaining three were from a website called Indobase. I enjoyed cooking all these dishes and my family equally enjoyed eating them.

We plan to try out more dishes in the coming months... Will keep you posted.
