Badami Murg Mattar – Taste Of Home

Badami Murg Mattar – Taste Of Home

I admit it I have been lazy. While I have been in the kitchen all the time experimenting, peeking into the computer, texting friends…but, stayed away from posting any new recipe on Kitchen Tantras. I blame it on the season. 

 I am wonder struck by nature’s partiality to this nation, when it comes to performing her greatest show. In Carolinas, she uses all her passion coloring the leaves. She enthralls and entices and uses the mountains as her infinite canvas. I was done for, infatuated and giddy…exclaiming in sheer glee at every tree, gasping for breath at every bend. The lush greenery from the previous season…just perks up and kisses goodbye to the earth. 

Alright, alright…this is essentially a food blog and I will stick to it. So, without much adieu.
