2nd Day of Dubai Shopping Festival and the customery fireworks lights up the night sky as I like an excited child watch without baiting an eyelid. Dubai is decked with fairy lights everywhere and looks like a fairyland. It's a wonderful time to visit the city to cater to any kind of adventure you have in your mind. The weather is so good and you can shop till you drop with alluring bargains everywhere. Loving every bit of #mydubailife.

Kadai Paneer. Mine is cooked with 1 tbsp of oil, no butter or cream has been used in the making of this dish. This dish blossoms with the sprinkle of the Kadai masala and the creaminess of the cottage cheese and light church of the capsicum / bell pepper and onion.

My kitchen is resplendent with the aroma of Kadai Masala. There are many recipes for kadai masala. As you can see I have dry roasted whole red chillies, cumin seeds, coriander seeds, fennel seeds and black peppercorns together till fragrant and crisp. Finally I added dry fenugreek leaves right at the end to prevent the delicate leaves from burning. Then hand pounded the roasted spices after cooling them and Voila homemade kadai masala is ready. Cool it and store it in an airtight container in a cool place. No need to refrigerate. Next time you make your kadai paneer or kadai chicken, you have your aromatic kadai masala ready.

Prawn Malai Curry.... Fragrant with a little pungent aroma infused by the mustard seeds and oil, creamy, vibrant with the colour imparted by the turmeric powder, what a gastronomic delight this dish from the rich Bengali repertoire is. Learnt all the nuances that goes into making of this dish from Ma and will soon share with you all on the Blog. Loving the festive atmosphere at home.

Loving the festive atmosphere at home. Pre #Christmas celebrations with Ma's recipe of grilled fish cooked by me with lots of love. The aroma in the house is overpowering my ability to control my hunger pangs. Why have my friends not arrived ? Is it not lunch time yet ?

Making Doodh Puli under Ma's vigilant eyes today.
Detailed Pictorial Recipe ~ http://mytrystwithfoodandtravel.blogspot.ae/2015/08/doodh-pulisemolina-and-coconut.html
Ma is here at my Dubai home and therefore this winter has totally blossomed with her Payesh ( Milk Pudding ) & Pitha ( sweet snacks made primarily with rice flour, coconut, jaggery etc.). Every other day I am summoned to the kitchen as she perches herself on a comfortable chair and gives instructions with precision which I execute just as she wants so as not to incur her wrath. She thinks that my knowledge of the above is very limited and that is not acceptable and total injustice to my Bengali genes.

This morning even before the rest of the house showed any sign of activity, one could hear Ma's voice clearly from the kitchen giving me instructions. Semolina, powdered sugar, coconut paste, she carefully mixes in a large plate, before it goes into the pan for cooking. I have thickened the milk last night and added saffron to it which has made Ma unhappy as the original Dood Puli (which you can see in my Blog post by clicking the recipe link above) is pristine white and the saffron has painted the milk with a yellow tinge. Ma frowns at me and says " you this generation always have your own way. We used to follow the instructions of our mother or grandmother to the tee". Wary of not further making her unhappy I carefully cook the semolina and coconut for the dumplings so that they do not change colour as they are to be bright white too. I finally manage to get them white as per Ma's desire and she is happy. Gives me a hug and walks out of the kitchen as I feel emotional and stop the tears welling up at the corner of my eyes. These are priceless moments and I am treasuring them zealously. The last picture is that of Ma in front of the Seikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi on 11th December which was her birthday. Mother's are the bestest gift in the world, which any one can have, no matter what age you are, right ?

Do try the Doodh Puli recipe and let me know how it turned out for you. Wishing my dear readers a very Happy Holiday Season.
