Your life does not get better by chance.
It gets better by change.
It is difficult to accept change in life for a person like me, who likes being comfortable, while sitting in its own shell without any modifications in life at all. It is difficult to come out of comfort zone and start again like a new. But the more I detest changing in life, I always welcome and like changes around life. I don’t know if it makes any sense but I like changes in only few things. By now you must have noticed change in the look of my blog. Yes! I got a new look and really excited sharing with you all.
Lot of work behind the scene has gone to make it possible and I could not have done this without the help of my dear hubby Mr. M who is solely and only person who made it happen. I cannot thank him enough and do appreciate his time and interest in my avocation.
Coming to the recipe now, today’s recipe is for the spicy food lovers. If you are bored with your everyday food and wanted to add a spicy kick to it, this recipe is for you. It is a good side dish that gives a food a chutpati spicy kick.
I remember watching my dad in awe with his likeness for green chilli with every food. My mom used to make Karonde hari mirch ki sabji and dad relished his food without any green chilli that day. I never saw karonda here in US but cranberry is the one that comes closest to it.
