Birthday special!!!!

16th July was a special day to all of us coz it was DH’s birthday!! This year I really wanted to make it special for him because after his traumatic heart related issues I wanted to cheer him up by preparing healthy low carb dishes so that he doesn’t miss the ” real food” by his lingo, Β that is loochi ( a kind of mouth melting fluffy bread ) and payesh, ( delicious rice pudding) the quintessential bong food for birthdays. Instead the healthy birthday special menu was veg meat kebabs for appetizers, crispy lentil dosas for dinner and for desserts purple cabbage payesh and light almond muffins!!! Whew too tired to post the recipes right away!!!! so posting the pictures for today……the recipes of this birthday special menu will follow soon one at a time… πŸ˜‰

      Hey mo thanks!!!! Ya this one you didn’t know by virtue of the distance( literally) between us!!!! I always loved cooking and having a great cook in my mom during my growing up years really helped I guess! The ideas these days are just coming to me, all thanks to the focused way of lookin at low carb food and also like all new cooks I have only experimented with my food all these years in my kitchen, only sharing them now! Really appreciate the appreciation πŸ™‚
