Anyways, the tag comes with 17 questions in Malay. Afraid I don't have the time to translate, I carried on answering them. Generally it's about my likes and dislikes...

♥...My Birthday Gift & An Award...♥

Image
No food post for today as I was little busy the whole yesterday doing nothing...Hahaha!

Well, I cooked for both lunch and dinner...that's a lot of work already right!

I recently celebrated my 31st Birthday, on 7th Nov. A prezzie from beloved Hubby is a must...owh, I'm so mean!!!

Panasonic Lumix FH20, a pocket digital camera this time. A gift which I can keep in my bag and walk around, get some candid shots. I'm beginning to like the camera, pics are good especially outdoor ones.

Can't be carrying our Canon dslr bag everywhere. That's mainly to shoot food pics and hubby's marine aquarium. Also for vacations and functions. Newayz, I love both the cameras!!!

Thanks my dear Hubby, in Cape Town right now...missed U Chelo!!!


Next, I received an award! Ms. Biren@RotinRice and Ms.Ruby@punjabifooddiary passed me One Lovely Blog Award. I should first apologize for posting the award little late here. I'm suffering from a short term memory loss lately...hehehe! Lucki…

♥...Easy Baba's Murukku...♥

Image
Hello friends, how U all been??? We are doing very good here but started to get bored since my Hubby left for Cape Town last night. We had a real blast this month, super fun!!! Hehe...

Making murukku, a popular and a must-have snack during Diwali has become pretty easy with ready made flours. You may find several brand in stores, but I used Baba's Murukku Flour Mix. I was actually influenced by my Mum. She's been using Baba's all these while, thus I followed suit.

Though its a packed flour, I'd still need to prepare additional spices to mix with the flour. The recipe at reverse side of their pack does not include those spices. It would taste very plain without them. So, let's have a look at this easy-to-do murukku recipe. Anyone can make this and don't forget the murukku mould!

Baba's Murukku Flour Mix is made of rice, black gram, gram dhal and salt.
