I had some ripe Avocados,made Milkshake and with the two left I made this Guacamole.Guacamole is an Avocado dip or spread you can use for your toasts or as a spread in sandwiches or simply as a dip for your chips or snacks.

Another 10th and time for the MFB Challenge.This month I never thought I would participate because the whole month of March till today I have been very busy.Once the school re opened I thought I will have enough time for myself but nothing happened like that.There will be always something or the other.We had guests most of the days and then my exams on Tajweed class I attend.

Again today I am here with a side dish,a non veg curry.If you are a regular reader of this blog,I have already mentioned that our favorite sea food is Prawns.Any thing made out of it,from snacks to side dishes or rice is completely wiped off.I have already prepared snacks like this and this.And gravy types like this.

Days are just flying off.It's just like yesterday the school was closed after the Annual exams for two weeks and now, tomorrow it's re opening.As the climate was moderate children enjoyed playing outdoor games to the maximum.In India, my sister told me the summer vacation has started and it's time of the year when people start Visiting Gulf or other countries.Here in Qatar now a days as the Visa is free we get to see so many families including elderly parents in Malls,parks etc.It's a lovely sight seeing them laughing and playing with their grand children :)

Today's recipe is a simple Chicken curry.The same curry which mostly every one cooks but the twist is the whole sauteed ingredients are pasted and then proceeded,which gives it all the difference.My children love chicken curry compared to fish or any veg.curries,but then too it's like they just dip and flip the rotis in the gravy and eat.

There are 2-3 Mango trees back home but a particular tree yields a lot of Mangoes.Umma says it has given a lot of raw mangoes for curries and pickles and also delicious ripe mangoes.Whenever there is plenty she gives it to our neighbours and relatives,that is every one gets these mangoes to taste every year but hardly I get to taste them.It is really hard to send it through someone because of the weight problems,and only very close relatives might take the trouble,also my Dad doesn't like troubling others with such loads.But as he comes during those six months gap (which now has turned to one year) Ummi sends whatever she could get which would be mostly raw.It's not that we don't get Mangoes here,actually we get a lot of varieties from different countries along with Indian Mangoes but something from our own garden means it elevates the love and taste somehow :)

How fast the time flies,from one challenge we have reached to the next 10th of the month's challenge.That reminds me just after two months its Ramadan Alhamdulillah..This time the theme was to prepare any breakfast.Though we all know how important it is to have breakfast but its the one meal mostly skipped.I always feel there is enough time to have breakfast in India rather than compared to Doha.Specially for the school going children and working people,who have to go very early in the morning here.If children find eating things difficult early in the morning then the best part is to give them something healthy in their tiffin.

Have you tried making Milkshakes or smoothies with Custard Apple.If it's a 'no' just because of the task of separating the seeds from this delicious fruit then no more worries now because the process is so simple which can be done in a jiffy,and you have your other ingredients then bliss...

I have already posted a Paneer recipe earlier and I have mentioned there how my children love eating paneer dishes.Now a days very week once or twice there will be a paneer dish at home.When my parents were here I prepared this chilly paneer and everyone liked it so much,that every thing was mopped up nothing left for packing for the kids tiffin.So this week when I started preparing my little one told me he needed the same for his school too,so I reserved some for the next day.I made chapatis,then I put this Chilly paneer inside and rolled it,that is how my younger one told me to do for his tiffin.

The Challenge for this month was to prepare a dish from Bangladesh...Yes for the monthly challenge of MFB.I had no idea of this country's any dish or the difference from this Country's and West Bengal's dishes.When the challenge for this month was given I started searching and it started with sweets,but not being very sure of it I just dropped it there.Then I came across a spiced yogurt drink and planned to do that for the challenge.In between I was not well for sometime due to the climate changes here.

Getting compliments from anyone (for our cooking)does give a positive energy but if its from someone very dear to us then its something very precious.And when its not just words like 'tasty or yummy' then...

Two weeks with parents just passed away so quickly,just like blinking of the eyes.Also it's already past a week after the new year.My Facebook friends know how the last week turned out with my parents all of a sudden ,my Dad being sick.
