Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Even though I registered my blog in December 2007 only, I started posting in it from March. March 12th was my first post published! So I thought, this day should be the birth day of my blog. I started to blog with lot of doubts, confusions and questions in my mind. But within no time, this one year went off!! I have 192 posts in my blog today which includes, recipes, my thoughts and few things from my daughter.
When I revisited the posts, I was happy to see that, my most of the recipes have been participated in one or the other event. I need some one to push me to do some good work!!! I laugh, when I read my first few posts, as the language is so bad, with lot of grammar mistakes. Now also, I am not so good in writing, but improved a bit!
I want to thank all my friends here, who always took time to visit my blog, and came up with their sweet comments and suggestions and requests and support.
"WISHING A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BLOG"
I would like to recall my first post, which was an introduction about why I came in to blogging,
Its almost more than a year I thought of entering the blog world. But!!!!!!!! this "but" is the mother of laziness!!!
Having 2 kids, managing alone everything, it was impossible for me to sit and share my world with others.
From past one month I am regularly following few blogs and surprised and really amazed about the knowledge, these girls have. Keep up the work. Jai Ho Blogging.
Learning words from blogworld also.
Started to learn now, just laugh and forget at my mistakes. Mistakes makes man not perfect but takes him to perfection. (No one is perfect in this world!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
I will try to share my recipes in next few days and will try to share my views also.
Bye for now.
And PJ was the first to comment on my post! I was so happy to see my first comment!!! Thanks PJ for giving me that happiness.
Coming to the recipe for birthday!!! Are you wondering, why am I posting the recipe for Tea!!!
Actually, I wanted to start my blog with tea! Again I thought, it is very basic thing, and I wanted to start with something different. So the tea recipe went on postponing.
I thought today is the best time for this recipe as it is a birthday of my blog.
Last week, I took photos of making tea! And believe me, I enjoyed making and taking pictures as if first time I was making tea!!!
Here goes the recipe with pictures,
After water, the tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world...(Read more here ).
Each country, and in each country,each region or state, the method of preparing tea is different. There are many types in tea, white tea, green tea, black tea(my daughter's favorite), herbal tea and KT! It is very interesting and vast subject to study.
So, without much introduction, I am coming to a very normal and regular way of making tea, (as it is the post has become very long!!)
To make two cup of tea,
Water - 1 cup
Hot or warm Milk - 1 cup(do not add cold milk)
(or if you do not like more milk, adjust the qty by adding more water and less milk)
Sugar - 3 tea spoon
Tea powder - 2 tsp
You can add, a pinch of Cardamom powder or dry ginger powder or crushed fresh ginger! OR, some times add half a piece of Parle G biscuit in that and check the taste! It really tastes great!
Keep the water to boil and add tea powder and wait till it starts boiling. Add sugar and wait for 30 seconds. Now add hot milk and allow it to boil for a minute. Remove it from the fire and strain in to cups.
Enjoy it with biscuit or any favorite snack.
A game played in our ladies club;
There was a "One Minute" competition in our ladies club for sports day. Every body was given a question to write in one minute, the things we need to make tea! Ladies started laughing, thinking that how much time we need to write the things to make a cup of tea!!
What do you think what all you need to make a cuppa tea?????
My mother was the only one to write all the things needed. And here is the list,
2.Lighter or match box to lit the fire
3.Lifter or Pakkad to hold the vessel
4.Vessel to make tea
5.Tea spoon to put tea powder and sugar
Any thing else we need to make a cup of tea???
Need the best wishes and support for my blog to come up with more recipes and other things also.
