It’s been a while since I penned down something…
But that doesn’t mean that I wasn’t cooking… I was just taking time off to myself, cooking great food and totally backing off from the internet.
But, here I am again!!
Anyway, while I was wondering on what to be prepared for dinner, this recipe caught my eye. Being a Sunday, my husband also joined me “cooking”.. And all the grinding and frying stuffs were done by him!! And I guess, I needn’t explain more..
