Let me share the food I had there with the pictures –

  • Shorba – Makai Aur Badami (veg) and Tomatar Jhinga (non-veg). I had Tomato Prawn soup, prawns are tenderly cooked in tomato were the taste was well balanced being spicy and tangy.
  • Starters – Arni Aur Channa tikki, Subz Tarkari Tikki and Nawabi Paneer Tikka for veg and Pather ki Gosth and Machi Ki Shammi – All the starters were too good, being a non-vegetarian I always like Pather ki Gosth – were the mutton (lamb) pieces are marinated well in a spicy masala and cooked on the stone top.
  • Main course – What do one remember when it’s Nizam food festival? – Yeah Absolutely you are right – there was 3 varieties of Briyani – Chicken Briyani, Mutton Biryani and Kabuli Briyani which was accompanied with gravies – Dakha Gosht, Paneer Pista Korma, Ambada Dal, Tamatar ki salan. Last but not least the king of Nizam food – “HALEEM” – served with roti, nan and paratha. Haleem was too good, being a lover of Haleem I enjoyed it to the core 😊
  • Dessert – Potharaekulu – The first time I got to taste potharaekulu, which was made with too many soft, crispy layers and sprinkled with finely chopped pieces of pistachios, which melts in the mouth. Double Ka Meetha – It has right sugar level, so that one can have more than two. Uroosa – I felt the taste of beetroot, condensed milk similar to beetroot halwa, but unware of what it’s made of . Chum chum was taste to the perfection and finally the Fruit Custard – I like anything made with the combination of fruit and milk.

Worth to give a try – I am sure you would love it. This festival is from 15th of May till 25th of May, never miss it, perfect for this rainy evenings and the timings – 7.00 p.m till 11.00 p.m.

When it comes to color, it’s not only me but every one of us come across many things. Colors represent one’s emotion, feeling, spirit, mood and the list is never ending.

Colors has loads of power in them, as they could change the mood, mind set of people and make everything ease. Colors are endless and limitless with too many shades like light colors, dark colors, metallic, gold, bronze…

So, when it comes to gift, dresses you wear for functions all have some color contractions. I love black color to the core, but my mom and grand ma, shouts like anything when I pick dresses in black 😲. I use to laugh and make fun of them 😝, during my childhood. But now, I could realize how colors play an important role and how it could easily soothe one’s feeling and make them feel more comfortable.

A Timely and A Precious Gift – Madraasi Scribbles

From my experience – recently while going through a problem 😐 (my mind says, but it was just a dust), both my brain and heart started travelling in two different paths. It has been a difficult time and still being, but as I knew that days are passing by and I need to get up to speed and catch up…

When the days were brighter, my eyes found it darker
When the nights were darker, my eyes found it brighter
When there were blooming flowers, my eyes found only the shrunk ones
When there was moist in the air, my body felt only the dryness
When there were supporting words, my ears heard only the blames
When there was true love around me, my heart felt only the hatreds
When the brain felt more active, my heart felt more depressed
And came wonderful colors, made me realize who AM I…

I would say that these colors are not a gift, but it’s the positive vibes, that has flourished my mind with the sweetest, wonderful, beautiful, loveliest things around me.

Thanking the sweetest person, whom I haven’t met, haven’t chat but whom I came across social media. Feeling happy to have such a person who read, understood me through my writings and now means a lot to me.
