Today was really a busy day for me…I woke up at 6.00 in the morning,Yes that is really a unusual one,because I have never done this any day..My usual wakeup time is 7 or 7.30..Please don’t think bad about me..Somehow I couldn’t sacrifice nap’ng for anything..He He..”Everything will change after marriage”-This is the famous quote of Mum all day…
The first thing which I did is uploaded my blog..Then I logged out from my system and started my busy day..
Today my mum was little bit tired,so breakfast was upto me..I thought to make a special breakfast …So I made Venpongal,Quick Sambar and some Tomato Coriander Chutney..It was totally southindian and delicious..I will post recipes soon..
After having a quick breakfast..I just refreshed myself and got ready for visiting my college friends after a year or so.We arranged for this plan a month before and today was the day..
You know how the feeling would be meeting your dearest friends after a long time..I was really excited about this and we went to a near by Icecream parlour..We really had a good time..We spend a hour or so together and finally came home by 2 in the afternoon..
Then me,mum and my two sister were having a good chat for so many hours…Still mum din talk anything about dinner so I think i should do it now…
And Tomorrow is my sisters’s birthday..She really want me to do something special for her birthday..So plans are going on..Will let you know about the meal tomorrow..
Now back to today’s recipe…Somehow I love the smell of pineapple just wafting through your house whenever you use them…The smell is so sweet and gorgeous..And you can never hide them because the aroma of this lovely fruit will show itself..
I love cooking with this,especially this pachadi recipe…Whenever I think about this my mouth will start watering..This pachadi taste sweet,sour and spicy at the same time..Thats what makes this dish unique..
