I taking advantage of hubby not beeing home, didn't cook any kind of special food, most of the lunch it was very normal really super easy food and I guess my daughter was fed up of me feeding the same dishes everyday or same simple dishes, anyway the week was almost over and then we were having our lunch and suddenly my daughter asked me Mamma why are you not making any special food when we are alone, why do you only make when papa is here.
I think my jaw just dropped hearing the question.
I felt so guilty about my daughter's question and when hubby came home I told him the whole story and he was like yeah you must have been really feeding her the same food then.
And from that time onwards I made sure when hubby is out of the country that I don't get lazy as I didn't want her to have the feeling I only make special food when her father is there.
I didn't make that much changes, I did my own chicken mince so i could use breast and legs. I added really less corriander powder as I am not that wild abou the corriander powder taste.
I would take care of the amount of dry chillies as they are really spicy.
As i found out in my chicken balls ( even though Sandeepa had written use chillies accordinly to your taste which i didn't listen, i used as much as she told , which almost blew my daughter's brain which she needs for preparing for her exams ).
Also i just fried the ball in few tablespoon of oil just to seal them aorund.
I also added a bit cream too. ( Coudn't resist )
This is one yummy delicous Kofta balls which I am going to make.
As it was daughter and I we had a lot of left overs, so i put in a tupperware in the freezer for a day when I am lazy to cook :-)
Now I will have to Share with you few of the things ,what my dear hubby brought from UK.
Isn't he so sweet. He bought loads and loads of mangoes. One box was alphonsa.
When i saw the heap of mangoes I asked him was he in a mango mood to buy so much. And he was like you don't get them here so I thought I will buy a lot.
Then the surprise of the bunch was the Dosa Podi. Each time I went to the Kitchen today i had to smile thinking about the sweetness of hubby buying them especially because it was written in malayalam.
We all like Dosa just that I don't like to make the dosa mix from scratch.
And the drumsticks well that is something hubby and daughter loves.
When we go back home my sister make sambar for them with dosa. I There will be so much drumsticks in them and my daughter and hubby will be sitting and eating them atleast for a hour.
When my sis goes to the shop next to her house to buy the drumsticks , and when she is back home she will tell me, the shop fellow must have thought there is a huge party going on here as she bought so muchy drumsticks, and she will remark does the poor fellow knows that it is just for two people.
