The Sweet is Never as Sweet without the Sour - #FoodVentures

Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory. We all are in an invisible race today, running towards money, fame and for our career goals. When we look back at our life, we will remember the time spent with our loved one. Some moments were bitter, some were sweet and some were funny too. But all these memories bring a huge smile on our face with zeal to relive that moment one more time.

I remember when 2 years back I had visited my native city Hyderabad to meet my sister; she was 8 months pregnant that time. We all know how close bonding two sisters have. A sister shares childhood memories and grown-up dreams. I was so happy to meet her & be with her during the most important phase of her life. The pregnancy is the period when an individual has cravings of all type & she can ask for any flavour especially the “Khattah-Meetha” which is the popular one. One day she was craving for “Khattah-Meetha” and our mother was not at home. She started looking at me with a hope, and I was not prepared for that look. Actually, she was telling me to take the honour and start experimenting in the kitchen. To make her happy, I checked into the kitchen where I found Curd, Sugar and Rava. That was all guys, I decided to take charge and start my food adventure. It was exciting & my first attempt but trust me friends this food adventure of mine was successful and my sister loved my new innovative dish of Sweet and Sour Upma.    



I am sharing my food adventure with all my readers.
