The veg-raitha prepared in yougurt gets a dash of "Thousand Island Salad Dressing"..trust me, it tastes different from the ordinary, looks better tooo.
Dates Pickle: Before I was to come to the Gulf, my mom had prepared this pickle (infact, the only pickle I eat..the others are way too hot for me!) and literally forced me to take down its recipie, as dates is one such thing which is Oooh so everywhere in the Middle East. Trust me, she felt that I was joking when I mentioned to her that I had prepared it myself...and wasn't convinced until I showed her a snap of it !!!
It even takes a bit too much of a time for my brother to even digest the fact that "Yeaahh...Sona can also cook"!!!!
