Aam ka Muzaffar | Celebrating 2nd Blogoversary with my lil princess!

                                     Back with a bang!!?? No.. Back with a Baby.. Yeah! Finally back into my favorite world of blogging after almost an year.. And the catch?? I am a mommy now!! My 3 month old Ashritha (Yes, that’s her name!) is a super cute baby who keeps me super busy.. She loves Arabic music channels ( A true “Gulf baby”) and starts fussing when her dad switches back to news.. Our princess also loves flowers, teddies and her mom’s funny faces (Yes, clown too!).. Here is a glimpse of our “gojju” (as her dad call her!).. This is a pic taken for passport when she was just 4 days old (Yeah! Awwwww…) 🙂

                              Sharing few more clicks of our lil girl.. We are simply amazed at the rate at which she is growing every day..

My Blog is 2 too!!

No matter how busy days have been being pregnant and now with our baby, my dear hubby has always kept my spirits high.. He already has a recipe list ready and says i just need to cook, click and blog.. Easy, right?? (That too with a 3 month old.. Perfect! Lol..) So the first on his list was Aam ka Muzaffar.. This dish has a special memory with us.. When my brother came over last year, we had taken him to a restaurant here named Royal Tandoor… This dessert attracted us with its unique name and did not fail to disappoint us with its amazing taste.. So when we took my dad out for sightseeing Qatar (he had come to help me settle down) , the place to dine was fixed (Also the dessert!).. That day Mr Hubby confirmed my first blog “comeback post”.. Aam ka Muzaffar it was! And which day could be better than my 2nd blog anniversary.. So the date, 24th May was also set…
I dug deep into the dish to find what they had added (while my kiddo played with her grandpa!) and found it was a richer version of phirni.. The health freak in me wanted to avoid condensed milk and food color.. So i decided to add Cashew-Almond paste and saffron..

As you can see, the dish is not as yellow as it should have been but the taste was fabulous.. We found it almost similar to the restaurant one (Yippee!) and gobbled up a huge bowl in a jiffy (Such sweet tooth we have!).. A must must try!!
