This is so so so Awesum, Thanks a  Ton Chitra for sharing this happiness with all of us!  these wonderful photographs of the Majestic Brahma Kamal flowers.What a great Video capture experiencing the moments with the bloom. It has been noted that there are many who pray, respect and wish for while the flower blooms, there is a belief that Brahma Himself appears in this form, a God of Creation, and only when he is pleased does the flower bloom. Thank you so much Chitra!

Healthy Fresh Corn Pakoras Recipe Step by Step and Honey bee Hive in my Terrace Garden

Image
Rainy season and hot pakoras go hand in hand, always in the chilly rains we love too eat fresh fried bhajiyas. No,  I usually prefer healthy food but these are too tempting to not eat in cloudy atmosphere, cold chilly rains! Onions and potato pakoras are traditionally famous but new healthy options can be  made with frying vegetable pakoras. Spinnach, methi, brinjals, lady fingers all can be fried with using batter mixture for fresh pakoras.  I have tried and they taste Awesum. Try different types, slices of gourds, brinjals, lady fingers slit, cucumber slices, bolied egg slices, and enjoy.
1) Step one choose corn, bhutta of soft seeds. dried seeds do not give tasty pakoras.
2) Sharp knife remove the seeds. use batter of besan.
3) Add green chillies corriander, turmeric, salt to taste.
4) keep for some time and then fry in oil for crisp hot pakoras.
5) Green chutney or tomato sauce as accompaniment for this snack in the rains!
Enjoy home made! Be creative, try creative bhajiyas and p…
