Wish you a happy Eid.


At the critical moment when my flat bread (roti) was underneath the grill, the Chapli Kababs were getting nicely browned in the frying pan, the smoke alarm started screeching. Startled I jumped a mile high — no that wouldn’t be correct to say, a few inches from the floor won’t be far from truth.

The sound was deafening. I’m always taken aback by the noise, and for a few seconds I remained immobilized with shock from the ringing sound. The trouble is there are five of them in our small apartment. When one starts ringing, all five join in. Smoke was billowing out from the roti. It was getting more burnt, as I stared at it in actively for a few moments. I rescued it from further burning from the grill, pushed the exhaust button before I rushed to the balcony doors to throw them open.

It would have been a perfect picture of me,  if someone was there to take a picture.

  1. Just reading about your flat bread and grilling is making my mouth water for this meal. I finally had eaten Indian food last week and this week, so my tummy is finally content. I shall have to visit the Mom and Son halal grill that I used to go to with my sister before. That place tasted good. I think their dishes will make me think of the ones you post about here.

    1. Thanks In. I don’t know where you live. If you were close by, I would have invited you to come. Today was hectic.
      It was Eid for us, and before going for Eid Prayers Son asked for Samosas and Chat. I had shop bought Samosas in the freezer, so I took some out. Then I made Chat for him, and Chapli Kababs, and a sweet dish.
      I try to cheer up Son with food, cause I’m a mother.

      1. I live in Los Angeles, California. There’s a good selection of Middle Eastern and Asian food in the Trader Joe’s stores, so I might stop by there this weekend. Enjoy your weekend and happy cooking, Sheen!
