Sooji ka Halwa and some updates

Suji Ka Halwa

Hello everyone…Happy Diwali! I know it’s been quite a while since I have said a Hellooo:) Well, life is just passing through at a very fast pace and I am just caught in the middle. Lots and lots of important events are happening. Our elder son, Aarav started school a month back. The younger one, Vedya just turned 1. We had a birthday party to plan. We celebrated her birthday on 15th, and it was so much fun.

My recipes got published in Vanitha Pachakam magazine during September. I didn’t get the time to update that.Here are the pics …

And another big news which some of you might have already noticed, I have now started a YouTube channel for Yummy O Yummy – please do subscribe and share if you find them helpful. My husband had been asking me to start making videos since a long time but my time schedule didn’t allow it. I still find it time-consuming but I have been noticing that videos are very helpful for the beginners in cooking and even I have started watching cookery videos whenever I can. As of now, I am unable to do more than 1 – 2 videos per week as I have an infant to take care.

Hope you enjoy my videos and do share your valuable suggestions and opinions. I will keep trying to make it even better!
