Chilli Babycorn

Summer holidays ending in few more weeks and we gathered so much of fun + laughter + jokes + serious discussions + new games +  and of course goodies to eat :)!
I strongly believe that it's a big challenge to keep the kids occupied and interested in what they do during holidays. Hmmm here's few of our tarle buddhi outcome during holiday season and so thought why not share it with you all ;)?

Mama - P hrithik roshan and his wife r divorcing
P - what underwater sea divers wowwww.........

Mama - explaining the significance of Gokalashtami festival. Krishna had 1000+ wives and were called gopikastriyaru
P - did Krishna really have do many wives?
Mama - yep
P - how did he call them or remember them?
Before even I could say something lil boy screams with laughter
Saying he used 'GOOGLE' I think mama

This tongue twister made us :))
1 smart fellow he felt smart
2 smart fellows they felt smart
3 smart fellows they felt smart
And they all felt smart together;)

We went on a laughing riot :)!!!!!

Here's a spicy recipe from me for all those baby corn lovers - Chilli Babycorn!!!!

Serves : 4-6

Babycorn - 3 trays chopped an inch lengthwise
Onions - 2 sliced
Peppers - 2 cubed
Cornflour - about a cup for coating
Ginger grated - 1 tsp
Garlic grated - 1 tsp
Green chillies finely chopped or lengthwise - 6 to 8 ( depends on how spicy they are)
Soya sauce - 2 tbsp
Chilli sauce ( optional) - 1 tbsp
Black pepper ground - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Sugar - 1/2 tsp
Oil for frying and about 2 tbsp
Coriander leaves or spring onion greens chopped for garnishing


  • Mix the cornflour with little water. The consistency should be just to coat the Babycorn.
  • Mix well and deep fry the coated Babycorn until golden brown. Drain and keep aside.
  • In a separate wok - heat Oil and add the green chillies + ginger garlic paste. Fry for few seconds.
  • Then add the Onions and Peppers and stir fry for few seconds.
  • Next reduce the heat to medium and add both the sauces along with Sugar.
  • To this add the fried Baby corn along with some Salt and mix well until well coated.


 Garnish with greens and serve hot!

Eat well and be Happy :)!

All about the scope

Here's few tidbits from my son who's 6 yrs now and it's amazing to see kids come out with original jokes :). So thought why not treasure them to cherish sometime later on :)

Scene was in the kitchen while I was making Parathas and my DH and son waiting with their plates in hand :).
The paratha puffs like a poori and DH cannot resist saying slice it and throw an egg in it to make lovely egg paratha. I was like whattt?? Yes that's how the guys ate somewhere near IIT Delhi during their college days on the road side ;)
So thus the story started..... Hostel days, pocket money etc Remember our lil curious George was right there hearing everything....
P asks his dad so pappa what do u mean by hostel? Pappa geared up cautiously to answer all the questions of our little curious monkey:)

P says so mama and you studied in same college and you both fell in luv with each other and that's how you got married? Didn't you?
DH says nope we were in different college.
P says then howcome you got married?
DH : I am still wondering? Lol
Mom : that's not funny.....
Now comes the gyan guru ;);)
Mom: Nope P ours was an arranged marriage.
P : what's this arranged marriage .... Is it something to do with arranging stuff
Mom: certainly.... Parents meet first and then exchange of  information and then horoscope match which is a must and I went onnnnnn
P : I knew telescope, microscope but what's this horoscope all about??

We were all lol.......
Before he comes up saying horoscope marriage is a marriage filled with horror stories quickly finished the Parathas and slipped them on their plates and we all enjoyed the hot Parathas with some pickle + yogurt and went on a laughing riot :)

Thought I must share this with my friends!!!

Have fun and happy parenting!!!
