Twice lovely

Celebration times!! I have been conferred the ‘One Lovely Blog’ and that too two times! Thank you so much Scribby and Ashreya’s Mom. This is my first award and I get to receive it twice! Can it get any cooler than this 😉


According to the rules, I have to tell 7 random facts about myself. Since this blog is all about me and my better half, there is nothing new that you dont know 😉

Now, since I got an award, I need to celebrate it.

kuch meetha ho jaye?

🙂

I had a can of milkmaid unused for 2 weeks and was looking for ways to use it. Also, when I closed the fridge after looking at the milkmaid ka dabba this Saturday, my eyes fell on the coconut sitting on the kitchen counter. Why not use both of them I thought. Due to prior experiences of disasters in mixing this and that, I wanted to be sure if you could use coconut scrapping’s with milkmaid. I was not disappointed as Google Baba showed me a way. Here’s in celebration of the award, how to make yummy coconut laddoos

This measurement makes 15 small sized laddoos.

Ingredients:

2 cups of shredded coconut ( 3/4th of a normal sized coconut)
1 cup of sweetened milkmaid
1/2 spoon of cardamom powder

Method:

(1) Either shred the coconut pieces using your mixie jar or use the scrapper to get 2 cups of shredded coconut. For me I got this quantity with 3/4 of a coconut
(2) Put on some music( optional, but recommended)
(3) Heat a non-stick or a thick bottomed pan and stir the coconut. Make sure the coconut does not burn
(4) Wait until all the water evaporates (this happens quickly) and it turns brown in color.
(5) Enjoy the rich aroma wafting around you.
(6) In one hand, pour the milkmaid on the coconut, with the other hand keep stirring the mixture.
(7) Keep stirring for about 10 minutes, it will get thick and the quantity will also reduce.
(8) Turn off the heat and add cardamom powder and mix well
(9) Let it rest for some 10 minutes, while it is warm enough, make small laddoos using the mixture.
(10) I made small discs too, actually you can mould it into any shape you want.

Enjoy 🙂

P.S Before you think if I have turned into a chef ( ME are you listening? ) with last time’s sizzler and this sweet, please note that I burnt the day before yesterdays vegetable pulao and this mornings vermicelli upma looked so bad that Zack did not even taste it 😛

Of a reward and an award

The official finder/ keeper / saviour of the ViZa land gives you a warm welcome.

Lost your house keys? Unable to find the perfect dress for the wedding? Forgot where you kept the train tickets or the passport? Finding it difficult to fill a form online?

Worry not, when Visha is in your line-of-sight. Even a phone call to her would do actually.

Both, my family as well as the in-laws feel mighty proud of the fact that there daughter/ daughter-in-law is the one-stop solution to their daily worries and needs. Even after marriage, I provide distance-support to where my brother’s board exam certificates rest or where my mummy’s sky blue saree sleeps in her wardrobe. As far as my in-laws are concerned, they are happy to bring in more and more people who can benefit from their daughter-in-law’s expertise, unable to read her face which says – ” Why me Lord, why me? 

And the reward for anything and everything after this poor soul finds/ solves/ finishes –

A statement :

” You are super Visha 

Well, I could go on and on on the ‘joys’ of being super, but a much more important event occurred.

Yours truly GOT AN AWARD

Versatile blogger award

Which wonderful soul could read my musings on a beautiful sunny morning and shower me with affection and praises along with giving me this award?

The vibrant, lively and fully paagal CD of Pagal Hain Kya !!

Here’s few nuggets about Miss CD :

( a ) She has numerous names. Since she is perennially confused about what her name is, hence she calls herself Confused D.

( b ) Every single post of hers will induce you with madness and laughter. You might think she is telling you a love story. Or a horror story. Whatever. But when the seemingly innocent love/ horror  will take a howlarious turn you never know.

( c ) She absolutely loves balloons.

Dear CD, thank you so much for conferring me my first ever award. I am so happy with you conferring this award to me, that only one thing comes to my mind now. Here, this bunch is ALL for you.

This award comes with some attachments. Apparently, CD wants to know 7 random facts about me OR answer 7 questions which she has asked.

Since the former is already done, I will attempt the later.

Have you stopped getting those mental attacks you used to get earlier?

It started the day I started reading you. Will stop the day I stop reading you. While we are at it, why don’t you help me in dealing it, coz sharing your experience will help affected souls like me.

My name is “I” and Your name is “You”. Tell me who is mad?

‘Who’ is mad. What? You say – Tell me who is mad? So I tell  😛

What means kya?

Yes

If you had ‘Alladin’s lamp’ , what would you ask for me?

Dear Genie-inside-the-lamp, please fulfil all the wishes of CD, keep her mad and bubbly like this always. If her quota does not get over and you get tired, bring her to me, both of us will give you a rest while we bring the house down.

Tell me the name of the persons who shake their hands on Nokia instruments?

Rolly and Polly

When is your birthday?

Fifth day of Leo

I am hungry! What will you cook for me? I am a vegetarian.

If you come unannounced, you will get dosa with coconut chutney. Knowing your luck, your train is definitely gonna be late. So I will serve you these, in the mentioned order – tomato soup, masala vada, aloo paratha, onion and cucumber raita, mango pickle, Visha’s special pulao, dry manchurian, carrot halwa, vermicelli pudding and at last jeera water.

Now that I have answered the questions, let me bask in the glory of getting awarded 🙂

P.S In order to bring more insaneness in an already insane world, without worrying about which level of insaneness you will achieve, kindly enjoy the insanity at  CD’s
