#mummerydays

I’m always surprised at myself, how, despite having an overloaded kitchen, never having any room for anything anymore, (and complaining about it too),  yet I manage to find a spot right on top of my largest cake tray to dry my baby girl’s painted figurines ! I think it’s not really a question of how?…

Mum used to cut them…

Simply a celebrative excuse…

Gol Gappa for Elevenses

Pani Puri or fondly known as Gol gappa… Filled crispy mini puris dipped in sweet spicy tamarind water…    I remember asking my husband about them after watching ‘Gol gappi’ session in one of my all time favi Hindi movie Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi.. But it stopped there. Recent times, I was fortunate to have had…

Onam Celebrations

We were invited to Onam celebrations recently, an event organised close to our village. Onam is a major celebration celebrated in one of the southern states of India, Kerala. A brief introduction, from my perspective that is… Historically during the British Empire period, the Indians who migrated to Malaysia were mostly from the Southern states…

Hot and Spicy Chicken curry

It’s raining and predicted to rain all day where I am.. The next village is now just partly visible from my kitchen window, covered in thick mist. And it does feel quite wintery…a feel I get almost 350 days in the year! 🙂 Here’s a recipe to warm up the day. Hot and spicy Chicken…

Cookery Bakery and Mummyry

With creativity comes reckless hours for experimentation. With a young family comes the unaccountable hours spent for my babies.
