Chaas Masala

We use chaas masala made by my mom-in-law on a daily basis. At lunch, Devansh and I have curd with chaas masala added to it. And then for dinner, we have chaas (buttermilk) with this masala added. I sometimes apply it to apples and give it to Devansh, if he's being fussy about eating apples. This masala tastes yummy when added to dahi wada as well. I doubt if I would be using this masala so frequently in Devansh's food if it was readymade. I am glad I can use it bindaas because my MIL makes it for us.

Personalized Gifts by Perfico - Review & Giveaway



Happiness is when your near and dear ones love your gifts.

Selecting gifts is so much fun: looking for options, shortlisting a few, weighing the pros and cons of each before finally zeroing in on that one perfect gift to suit the occasion—birthday, house warming, anniversary, naming ceremonies, Raksha Bandhan to name a few. I like adding a personal touch to my gifts but I am not a very arty/crafty person, good at creating stuff. That’s why I love this whole new wave of personalized gifting. 

I came across Perfico’s name in one of mommy forums where we were discussing personalized gifting options for Raksha Bandhan, which is just around the corner. One mom said she’d shopped with them many-a-times and was really happy with their products. That piqued my interest. I browsed through their products, liked what I saw, and contacted them for a review. They said they would love to giveaway one product of my choice to my readers. You want to know which one? You'll have to read my review first. I won't bore you with unnecessary words I promise, I'll let the products do the talking. :-)

Tadke Wali Roti with a Fruit and Veggie Twist (Phodnichi Poli)

Waking up Devansh at 7:30 in the morning for his school is a huge struggle. Luckily I don't have to send tiffin with him as they serve food at the nursery he goes to. But if I had to give him tiffin, I am sure I'd be packing phodnichi poli in his lunch box pretty often. It's one of the few homemade dry foods Devansh likes. If we're going out someplace and I need to carry his snack, phodnichi poli is one of my top preferences. I don't add veggies or pomegranate at that time of course. This prevents it from getting spoiled for a long time.

Fisher Price Newborn to Toddler Rocker - Review

We bought Fisher Price Newborn to Toddler Rocker for Devansh when he was around 5 months old. I chanced upon it in a store when we had gone shopping for his clothes and some toys. Kalpesh and I immediately fell in love with it; buying this rocker was a unanimous decision. And I must say that it's been an absolutely value-for-money experience.

Sweet Potato Sabzi

This is my mom-in-law's recipe and I love it; it tastes great and a big plus—it's not labor intensive. Devansh loves it too. Luckily, when it comes to veggies, Devansh eats most of them without a fuss. Touch wood. God knows how long that will last but as of now I have no complaints about his eating habits. When we are out traveling however, it's another story. The kiddo is so enthralled with his new surroundings, getting him to sit in one place and concentrate on eating is next to impossible. Now that he's 3+, I am trying to get him to eat outside food but it's a huge task. I have relaxed my constraints about him eating chocolates, biscuits, or chips when he hasn't eaten properly while we're traveling. But I have digressed...let me talk about this nutritious recipe. :-)
