Jodhpuri Murg/ Chicken

Yesterday, I was seriously thinking about going on a blog break. After having crossed 100 posts, I feel I need to slow down a bit on this running around. Unfortunately, me being the person I am, I will actually not go for a break now. Why? Because I know that I am in for a break next month due to Ramadan. Yes, our month of fasting is fast arriving and that time, I know that I will have no time for the blog – at all. So when I have time for it, let me post as there are loads in my drafts literally staring at me! ๐Ÿ™‚ This is the same situation that I have got to do with my leave at work – I have it pending since last October and I have to take it before it expires… really don’t know where to schedule it… hmm…


I guess I will go on an overload of chicken on my blog. Yesterday,ย it was the sumptuous Badami Chicken offered by Shibi, and without realizingย much, I put up Jodhpuri Chicken on my “Coming up Next” position. Onceย Shibi’s post went live, did I realize that I had lined up another chicken post.ย Hmm… I should have put in a sweet or if not, a snack at-least. Khair, koiย baath nahi, I will go as per my schedule as set by my subconscious mind. I saw this recipe on Vidhya’s page (who is a fellow UAE-ian!) and immediately put it into preparation. We devoured it down along with chapathis and it was really yummy…. A definite to try…
