As lots of Desi families, parathas have been in our breakfast ritual too. There are so many types and flavors of parathas as you all know (if you belong to brown family) but everyone’s choice varies when it comes to the filling of these crispy parathas, So does mine. Despite of my eternal love for ‘Aalu ka Paratha’, Meetha Paratha has its roots in my life since I was a kid. Every other day Mama made this for us in breakfasts or sometimes if we’ve insisted enough then in evening snacks too. I was a complete desi bacha, though there were always, french fries, spring rolls, cakes and kind of stuff served on our table but when it came to ‘Meetha Paratha’ i compromised every other thing. Well, not now, I am talking about my Childhood’s era. But yeah, i still like them a lot. Yesterday I made these crispy and tempting parathas due to my sweet tooth. And i thought i should share this with you people. I don’t know about the recipes out there, or if there is any recipe of this yummy treat and I can not even bother to Google this one because I am happy with my mother’s recipe. Let me share with you the very homely recipe of Meetha Paratha.
You know, Whenever there is a mango season, I am like, OHH Yeahhh!!! This time I am not gonna let you goo BABY! And the season started just a month or two ago and it’s already about to end. I mean why? I wait the whole year for mangoes to hit the market and right when I put my hands on it, They’re like “Few Days Left” to enjoy these pulpy mangoes. OKAY OKAY! I get it! Just like all other ‘Pyaar and Mohabbat’ this Zaalim society don’t want me to get my happily ever after with the only love of my life (mango) too. Anyhoo! I am sorry I got a bit overly dramatic as the mango season is about to end and there is still too much that we can do and talk about. Shall we begin? Today my only advice to you all is just this one thing, LIFE IS TOO SHORT, EAT DESSERT FIRST! And what can be a best dessert in this Mango-ey season? Of course something made of mango. So Let me share with you two yummiesttt mango recipes I have tried so far
Biryani has a great influence in our Friday rituals since I opened my eyes in this world. Every Friday, like a lot of other Pakistani Desi mothers, My Mother also sets to cook biryani as a compulsion. It’s like, it is not Friday if there is no Biryani. As I was born in KSA ( Kingdom of Saudi Arabia) and here, Friday is what we call our weekend, our weekly holiday and it has also been my father’s only WHOLE day at home, so, My mother just like a good wife knows that the path to my father’s heart is through his stomach and his stomach is addicted to friday Biryanis since forever. So, there is no leave for us (women) on weekends or holidays in typical desi families. What our mothers do and teach us to do as well is, on friday, when everyone else is enjoying their friday SUPER LOOONG sleeps ( that we can only envy), after your daily religious ritual (wudhu, 2 raka’a of nafal and some azkaar) she steps inside the kitchen. From there on she makes breakfast, washes dishes, help my family’s men get ready to go for Jummuah Prayers and then the Weekly Biryani Tradition starts with all the aroma of fried onion, garlic, spices and all that Tarka(frying), Bhunna (roasting) and Dum. And this rich, delicious and spicy rice and chicken’s dish is ready by the time, The Males of Home get back to home and then they’re served the lunch, that is, this so very tempting BIRYANI (believe me, I’m drooling even with the thought of it). And this biryani ritual goes on and on. This was about my Friday, what’s your Friday’s lunch ritual. Share with me by commenting below.

“Keep Calm and Eat Aam”. Mango a.k.a Aam, a fruit so juicy and scrumptious that I can’t keep my hands away from it, it’s like we share such a strong bond that whenever there is mango, there is definitely me. I ate mangoes to satisfy my taste bud craving its juiciest pulp but now when I know that its in my good interest to eat them, I’ve increased my consumption with 2x. You know it’s rich with vitamins
When life gives you lemons, throw them back and say, “I said I wanted a Mango!” I mean, of course who wants lemon when it’s the season of the king of fruits, MANGO!

And may be they’re everyone’s favorite and if there is someone alien out there who doesn’t love them, Oh dear, I am sorry to say but you need a thorough checkup. Just Kidin’ . Anyhoo!
