10th of the month means it's time for another MFB Challenge.Sometimes I feel my blog runs due to such Challenges,because at least at the the last hour,I manage to do the post.Its not purposely because I am engaged in so many things.Like I have a physiotherapy on alternative days,then the other days I have joined the Quran Tajweed and Grammer classes,where we have to study our portions etc.Sometimes a 7th STD boy comes for tuitons and at the end of the day after my house chores I just need to find my bed...hehe.

Today is the 10th of April - day for the MFB challenge. And the theme is to prepare any Indonesian Cuisine.While checking out on net I came to find out that some dishes were similar to the Kerala food.Like there is a dish called Pisang goreng which is similar to Pazham pori(Banana fritters),Then there is Serabi similar to Ottappam made on clay pans etc.Mostly all dishes whether snacks ,sweets or main cuisine ,there is addition of Coconut milk or grated Coconut.

This is one curry which ummi used to make often for breakfast in India when in a hurry or when there is no vegetable sides.That is when she forgets to soak the chick peas or there is no Potatoes or Paneer to cook something easy.For breakfast always its a vegetable curry or varieties of egg curry because its Appam Poori Puttu...dishes in that line which is mostly accompanied with these sort of curries.

Winter is the season for Persimmons (one of our favorite fruits)and we never miss the chance to get them.Do you know there are two varieties of Persimmon?Actually I came to know about these only recently.I used to eat these fruits when I was very young itself.Not able to pronouns the fruit name well me and my sisters used to call this as 'the tomato type fruit'.When young we used to get the 'Hachiya' type.Now also we get only this type from our nearby veg.shop.This variety can be eaten only when they are liquid ripe that is;when it is real soft and gooey inside(you can see the pulp on top of my milkshake).

I am part of the 'Muslim Food Bloggers' group on Facebook.A group with so many lovely ladies with the same Passion for cooking.To make the group more interesting ,a challenge has been put every month.The challenge started from last month but unfortunately I could not make it up last time,but thought somehow I should make it this time.If you all have read my last post you would know I am going through a low phase now a days.But somehow I didn't want to miss this again,so to be frank I didn't put much effort on this challenge.
This is my first post for this year 2017.Every one had their own ups and downs during the year 2016.And so did we.We have lost some of our dear ones last year.My Mother in law had passed away while we were in India,who was more to me like a mother than a Mother in law.Just after that her brother also left this world.
