Chole Masala Recipe/Chickpeas Gravy

When I get my Pc,sitting alone in my room writing about my blogs and browsing and hop over to other blogs while sipping a coffee gives me worlds.I say Alhumdulilllah,what else do I need in life.Do not disturb me for next 6 to 7 hours.;)wow what a life!I just loved it. :-*.Wish I could get it more often.
Hmm I will tell you what I did today.I was exploring my favorites fellow blogger’s site and my expression went from OMG to AWWW ;)Each blog is unique in its own ways.I liked reading Rafeeda’s Post,she was talking about change that she wants to bring in her personality.Introspection is good for all of us it makes us better human.Agreed?

Later I move on to Sharmiss site and she is one of my inspirations,her simplicity attracts me.I’m going to try her Baby Corn Masala recipe that looks delicious.

Lastly,I watched Pakistani drama‘Ishq mein Tere’,Where I get the inspiration of the day.These lines said by starring female character

“Zindagi har haal mein jeene ka naam h.
Andheron mein raushni dhundna wo hunar h jisse aap khushiyon ko mustaqil kar sakte h.
Zindagi kabhi bhi ek nuqte p a k nahi rukti,
Koi khwahish akhri nahi hoti,
Koi baat akhri nahi hoti
Koi mohabbat akhri nahi hoti"
(Which means live your life to fullest; finding a light in the darkness is an art so you can reserve happiness to yourself.
Life never end up at one point,
No wish is the last wish
No talk last forever
No love is the last love)
Now,head over to recipe,follow the simple procedure.
