A Small Plate Of Miracle

chef-clip-artYou know something really interesting happened to me the other day. I came home hungry as usual and as I was about to think about eating, this lady that I have never talked to but lives on my floor brought me a dish of chicken Biryani! How many times does that happen in life? That you’re hungry and someone knocks on your door and hands you a free plate of food! It’s a miracle people! I mean it’s different if you know them but for it to come from a complete stranger, that’s crazy! I know what you’re thinking, be careful. Yeah I know, what if they drug me or something? Don’t worry, I ignored her husband’s dinner invitation for a special holiday during our elevator travel few days ago. As my cousin and I discussed, they could totally drug me and make my body disappear and no one will ever know! Ah then for many years everyone will wonder as to what happened to my body. By the way just so you know, this was a South Asian rice dish that I just love! I particularly love the Sindhi Biryani that my mom makes, it’s just yummy! There are many different kinds but this one is from province of Sindh in Pakistan. I don’t have my mom’s recipe but you can look at the image and get an idea of the recipe at this link http://www.ehow.com/how_4547771_cook-delicious-pakistani-food.html

My tea for the momentTapal Danedar black tea, my family’s favorite!  It’s a very popular brand of Pakistan. Try it with some milk and sugar like the Pakistani way.  If you have never heard of this brand,  you can check out a couple of their interesting ads here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3fDSB-my2U, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2qXS7eYbuX8
