To be honest, I planned everything within just a few minutes of having him in my hand. I found him and that way I thought God gave me a gift today, but sadly it became worse.

So this morning, I was all set for the day and it was raining outside. I was running towards my lift arena with my raincoat, which takes me directly to the lady's restroom. I suddenly saw a cute bird sitting on the floor. …

One can find many versions of butter chicken out on the internet, which are far different from the authentic Indian style of cooking chicken at home. Butter chicken is an Indian dish made with chunks of grilled chicken (tandoori chicken) in a smooth buttery and creamy tomato-based gravy.

The presence of smoky flavor in the naan is due to the…

It is the most common sweet dessert made in my home. I know that if something good happens, or if mommy is in good mood then she will surely make kheer. My king of enjoyment is having a Katori full of kheer at the end of the meal. …

Sweet corn. Image by Author.

Sweet corn is a very versatile and staple food for centuries. It is a nice addition to soups, salads and also used as toppings in pizza. It might be one of the most confusing food out there because of few myths. People believe that it is high in sugar.

The truth is just reverse; it has a very low amount of sugar in it.

I am not sure how to classify it as a grain or a vegetable. When it is fresh, it is considered as a…
