Birthday Week 😀 with Food

I finally succeeded in making layered parathas. Here’s, Masala Laccha Paratha with Cardamom Tea.
My signature dish, Paneer Butter Masala, Salad, Naan and homemade Shikhand (made by my Mom)
We recently encountered a cyclone. It was windy and raining heavily. The best weather to have Aloo, Pyaaz and Paneer Pakoras with Kadak Masala Tea.
Rawa Dosa in the making
Cauliflower Manchurian
Junk food – Samosa Pav 😍
Junior shares his birthday with his elder brother Brad and Pitt. They live in Kolkata and I made this as a gift for them in Soft Pastels.

Lockdown Food

My plate has Bhindi Sabzi, Kadhi, Aachar, Salad and Roti along with Strawberry Milkshake and Buttermilk.
No, this is not black tea. This is Sulemani Tea. When I lived in Dubai, and since I didn’t like the milk taste there, I had switched to having this tea. These days when I am painting, I make this tea.
Healthy lunch – Focaccia and Vegetable Soup
I painted this for someone. She wanted a cartoon happy painting, and I tried making it as happy as possible.

Honey Chilli Cottage Cheese
Batter preparation for Chillas (Spicy Pancakes)
Wheat Flour Chillas (Pancakes)
This I bought from a store. Chocolate and Regular Paan. It helps in digestion.
