Of winter rains...

Just as I had begun to think that the scorching summers are coming back earlier than expected, the rain Gods showered mercy. And with the showers came back the winter delights; they can be savoured for a few more days now. Also came a reminder that Skeeter must cook all the pending winter delicacies that she had thought of while the winter lasts. Writing this post with the hot water bottle on me and a steaming cup of Kashmiri Kahwa by my side is pure pleasure... Nothing could've been better... Cheers to the winters!

Ankur: Obviously wot u had was nt made by u sleepyhead :P
===================================
Asha: Hey howdy? Well I cook as well as eat out.. Its not that I 'only' eat out :( Just that I blog less about what I make... :D
The tea I was talking about is Kashmiri Kahwa. It is made of special tea leaves(green tea) and is spiced with a spice powder which is a mix of cardamom,cinnamon,saffron etc. The spices used are the ones that help u keep warm(sply cinnamon). And lastly few crushed almonds are added to it.... :) And ur onion pakodas recipe was excellent.. thx again!
