Check out

This is the first time my blog is being featured on Foodie Blogroll's weekly Featured Blogs Page.
This is making me so excited and happy and I definitely need to share something with you guys.....

This post is all about sarees...for a change...just sarees...
The story is that three weeks back enroute to Trivandrum, we visited my amma's elder sister....after a 2 year gap.
I noticed lots of sarees neatly printed...and ready to be delivered.
My aunt has designed and printed them right in her home.
I could not help not clicking some shots...wrapped them on Nidhi.
Just wanted to show my friends how artistically and creatively she designed the sarees and transformed a plain saree into beautiful one.
Hope you all will like this.

My Aunt, Lata Simon is amazing when it comes to designing sarees. She has done screen printing on some of my  sarees and salwar dupatta, my ammas, sis-in-laws, cousins ( I will update on this later). Usually when there is a wedding or family gathering coming up, I usually rings her and ask her to do something for me....and so does most of the girls, women of my extended family. The next one I am asking her to do will be on a plain black silk saree; how would that go?? suggestions??

She takes orders and does according to the customers likes and colours they want, ofcourse, if you have a plain saree or duppatta or even salwar; she will print on will come around Rs 500-800 on a full saree.

If you want to do the whole saree and no time to buy the material just leave that to her; she will get the material of your choice, colour, and print them. Oh BTW these prints are hand washable...and safe on the skin too. 

She has hundreds of screens for you to choose from....I am showing her workplace and some of the screens.

Some more screens

No time to shop for saree or not getting that "wow" saree you have longed for.....

Contact Lata Simon on her mobile for more details: 09895016012.

Hope you like this small diversion from food.

  8. When it comes to the fashion taste and dressing styles of Indian women, most of them like to wear a Saree as it is a representation of an enriched Indian culture. Indian Sarees are illustrious among women across the world. The main forte of wearing a Saree is that it accentuates the beauty of a woman.

Puff Pastry Recipe - Homemade Puff Pastry

Puff pastry recipe : Homemade puff pastry in 15 minutes, can you believe that??  Bakery style  Puff pastry is so easy to make at home that you will never buy greasy bakery puffs. The best thing about this puff pastry recipe is that; it does not need any refrigeration (chilling the dough) or any other so called difficult method, you may see when you google for "puff pastry" Easy puff pastry can be made with the most basic ingredients and in under 15 minutes. Back in the 80's amma started making puffs at home; which my two brothers and myself used to enjoy a lot. She mostly used to make this for special occasions; like when a friend dropped in or when we long for something bakery style. Fast-forward to 2014; my daughter, Nidhi loves puffs and I have been asking amma to teach me how to make and somehow things did not work out when I last visited her. Right now she is visiting us here in Calicut and I coaxed and buttered her to show me how to make puffs. The
