There are lots of things happening these days and I am really busy for the last few days in the preparation of the Birthday of my lil daughter Anakshi aka Pari aka Papai , tomorrow is the day I am eagerly waiting to celebrate to its fullest and this time her friends are also coming to celebrate the B-day. It is her 4th and I am so surprise how she also exited to celebrate the day, she repeatedly asking me when my friends will come? When I am going to cut the B-Day Cake? Etc. etc….I was just thinking of the last 2 birthdays when she was not at all realising the day, It is really a good feeling. With all such thing I am back with the on-going event “Know your bloggers -2” and this time Manjari Chowdhury is the star of the week. Her blog “For the Love of the Food” is full of the versatility, she has a real collection of recipes from different cuisines and each one shows in depth knowledge of the food and cuisine. A good collection of baked items and cakes is so attractive in her blog. She also has a long list of restaurant reviews on Zomato.
I have chosen the recipe “Lakori Murgh Chole” form her blog, it was came out so good that it is now on the list of my favourite recipes, a must for try.
