Dear Blog Friends,
All is well with me except that I have Gestational Diabetes now. Since then, I just stayed away from food and food related things. It was very tough for me initially in choosing food but I got the hang of it now. I know what to eat, how much to eat and how to eat. In a way, this has helped me a lot in choosing the right kind and healthy food. I lost about 7 pounds so far and haven't gained a pound since Feb. My doctor was little concerned and ordered me to eat little extra food.
Now, I have everything under control and certain recipes I eat, don' t need any exercise too. I will compose a detailed post and add some recipes, hopefully soon to help others around with Gestational Diabetes.
My mom is coming tomorrow to help me with the baby and all and so, I started looking into blog and added a new magazine layout which I was dying for from long. I made this new, so that I can start posting mom's recipes from now until Aug.
See you all soon, thanks for leaving valuable comments, I have read them all and will contact you all one by one.

Dear Blog Friends,
This is my version of the dish (and not the authentic one). I have seen various different versions of preparing this dish and I picked up few points from each and made this. And I LOVED it so much that I ate that whole brinjal/eggplant piece at one go. Ravi couldn't eat so he took half for the lunch today. After eating this I felt that I should make this often, atleast twice a month.
Pasta and Noodles
My friend's mom (in Hyderabad) used to make this often whenever we went to her place for combined studies. I tried contacting her to get the Recipe and tried many times to get this kind of taste. Finally I found the recipe today and made this with a lot of enthusiasm. The food got ready in 15 mins; I was surprised at how fast this was done. I cooked noodles and the seasoning separately and that saved a lot of time.
I always loved this fruit in my school days. Vendors used to sell these in the colony and my mom used to buy these for us. She used to buy the ripe ones thinking that they would be sweet. But, I have eaten only small sized ones in Hyderabad and now I see large ones in the US and I heard that these are mostly imported from Mexico.
This recipe is the outcome of a failure. Initially I started making this with the idea of making Chekkalu (I know Andhra guys would laugh at this). I read somewhere sometime back the instructions to make this but I never tried this before and out of blue I felt the urge to eat this right away. I tried the ready made ones from the Indian store but didn’t like any brand so I started making mine.
