They say the Retail Therapy helps to elate your moods…especially for women… For a long time , I believed in it too. A wee bit of shopping helped me to  cheer up ,especially when I got depressed or frustrated with the hectic  homemaker routine! But after what happened today , I shall say , there  are exceptions in every belief…It all depends on situations and  places! It was my toddlers day off at school and since Diwali is  fast approaching, I decided to start some shopping ,before the shops get overcrowded …. ! Since I wanted something exclusive for myself, I  decided to avoid the mall and try out some designer boutiques in  Nasik…. Normally , I was expected to return home,all excited and cheerfull with my purchases…but  today was  an exception…. I checked out most of the boutiques and patiently  waited for the saleswomen to finally understand what I wanted, and  eventually realising they really dont have it!! Finally after  hours of hunting for my Diwali outfit..I gave up…returned home , all  frustrated with the place and the heat ! Retail therapy had a reverse effect…..! And to add to my agony…my maid informed me her  absence for the weekend!! My milkman forgot to deliver milk …and whatever that could go wrong went wrong…For a moment I doubted  if today was friday the 13th..but it wasnt! After  retail therapy , its the Kitchen or cooking therapy that helps me. So  decided to churn up something interesting for evening meal! I m in the  kitchen and I have something exciting planned.. I m always happy! So  yes….eventually it helped…These Pitas turned yumm…and I eventually indulged into them after a long tiring day!!

Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.
