Organizing Madness!!

Organizing is not always about spending $$$$ on storage trays or baskets. Sometimes just with little $ and some creativity one can make drastic difference. 
A huge counter space around basin with drawers sometimes turns to mess by just keeping all stuffs on counter! Not just they are scattered, but leave behind stains, oil marks, etc. 
One fine solution you may find at a Dollar Tree near by you. They have plastic baskets/trays (set of 3 mostly) in $1.00!!! Of course those are not high quality plastic like BPA free, but who needs those for toiletries! Here is a example what you can do with them.

complete mess free happiness :)

Hope I gave you few ideas for mess-free bath organizing.

Punch Wali Chutney!!

Sometimes you just read a recipe and you want to try it ASAP!
Did this happen to you? It happened to me few hours ago.
Just before serving dinner tonight, 
I saw my SIL shared a chutney/achaar recipe on Facebook. 
This recipe looked so simple & tempting, 
I couldn't stop myself from trying it right then! 
It is called 'Roasted Tomato Chutney'. I am sure many of you know this recipe already or tried it earlier, but it was a first time for me and I totally loved it!! Waiting for dinner because of that chutney was worth it!! 
So I thought of sharing with all my lovelies asap! :)

"Roasted Tomato Chutney"

(quantity of ingredients depends on your taste! 
I made just a little to try)
Green Chilly


Roast tomato on flame/coil

Crush green chillies and garlic in a mortar and pestle.
(i used more garlic than chilly)

Remove the burnt skin from tomatoes 
and roughly crush along with the green chillies and garlic.
Mix well and season with salt.

Serve & Enjoy!

This simple chutney can add that 'punch' to any simple food.
The hotness of chilly, strong flavor of garlic, tanginess of tomato and the roasted effect did the magic!

Guacamole Grilled Sandwich!

Healthy+Easy+Quick+Tasty Breakfast!
and of course for my love for Avocados!!!

Recently I shared Avocado Parathas!
Did anyone try those? Like it?

It was a typical lazy sunday for me today and I was thinking about quick but different breakfast. G is ever ready to have Poha (which I never made perfectly yet *sob-sob*) and I never liked it!! So after giving dear G his Poha with cold coffee, I decided to try this new recipe. Took risk though, but one of the yummiest sandwich I made!! **smiles**

Well here goes another quick breakfast recipe!


**For Guacamole:
  • Nice Riped Avocado (roughly mashed) - 1
  • Onion (finely diced) - 1/4th of a medium onion
  • Tomato (finely diced) - 1 little salad tomato
  • Green Chilly or Jalapeño (finely chopped) - to taste
  • Fresh Coriander Leaves (finely chopped) - to taste
  • Lime/Lemon Juice - 1/2 Tbsp
  • Salt - to taste
  • Crushed Black Pepper - to taste
  • note: adding little minced garlic enhance taste

**4 Slice White Bread (you can use brown too for even healthier version)
Little Butter for buttering bread slices

  • To make the guacamole; cut avocados in half. Remove seed. Scoop out avacado from the peel, put in a bowl. Using a fork, mash the avocado. Add rest of the ingredients and mix well.
  • On your sandwich maker/grill/griddle; place buttered bread slices, spread guacamole, cover with another buttered bread slice and cook. note: you may also top your guacamole with grated cheese of your choice, I avoid cheese so didn't use it.
  • Enjoy hot grilled sandwich with tomato ketchup :)

I usually enjoy my Sandwich with either Cold Coffee or Cold Choco Milk!
