Honey Chilli garlic prawns

Winter in Delhi is really chilling and and that is the time when I really love to cook. The fire gives me all the warmth and also with my little daughter growing and her love for cooking makes it all the more exciting.She is one talkative kid I have seen and has a answer for everything.

Nowadays , kids are really smart the other day I was watching Naisha (my daughter) playing on the  slide with some big kids. In 5-10 mins the big kids got bored sliding so they decided to tease the small ones by going on the slid first and calling the younger ones looser. Naisha observed the elder kids for some time and then went and stood near the steps of the slide .As soon as  she saw the big kids sliding down and coming towards the step .Naishastarted climbing the steps and shouting ,”I am the winner” .The mother’s and the elder kids just laughed their heart out.

Now to get back to our taste buds:-)
