The Tastes of India Christmas and New Year Giveaway 2016

Another year is on the verge of bidding adieu and a new year is dawning upon us in a few hours from now. There will be a lot of things that you would have achieved in the last year and there would be a few goals that you would have missed.

But this is the point where, you should rejoice about every small achievement of yours in the last year and at the same time it is also the right time to revise your goals for the next year.

No goal is difficult. It is just a matter of deciding; deciding to have a go at it and not give up until you have achieved it. And that, you will achieve all of those goals.

One of my mentors had once talking about a dream of his and I asked, “what value does a dream have?”.

And he responded, “Dreams are what drives you. If you don’t dream, you will never have a goal in life. So dream and translate those dreams into goals”.

He was very particular about putting a date to his dreams. He had a huge drawing sheet stuck on one of the walls in his bedroom. He had a picture of a huge house, a dream car, a dream vacation and many more such things on it. And he had a date written on each of them.

He had many of these drawing sheets all around his house at places where he could constantly see it.

And in all the years that I saw him, I could see him achieving most of those dreams. Some of them a little later than he had thought he would. But, he did achieve those.

Something that I learnt from him is about putting a date to your dreams. This works and it really does.

Why?

Because you are committing to yourself to achieve it by that date. And as days pass, you tend to push yourself to achieving it. So, if you haven’t already then put up your dream sheet at a place where you will see it always and don’t forget to put a date to it.

So here’s wishing you all a Very Happy New Year from the Tastes of India Family. We pray that all your dreams and wishes come true in the New Year.

As a tradition that we started the last year, we are running a New Year Giveaway this year as well. This is just as a token of happiness that we want to share with you. This is not sponsored by anyone other than we @ The Tastes of India (lol).

This Giveaway runs for 7 days and the winner will be announced on the 8th day. Come and Participate!!

Soya Chunks Cutlet Recipe – Step by Step Video

Soyachunks Cutlets

Soya Chunks Cutlet Recipe is a nice tea time snack, which is easy to make and tasty as well. You can sandwich it between two slices of bread with some mayonnaise spread in between.

Once again she is left with a lot of questions about Santa and his visit – Who is he, where does he come from etc…This year again she was waiting eagerly for Santa to come and every one of the nights until Christmas eve, before sleeping she would pray to god about everything that she would want Santa to bring for her, this year.

She got everything that she wished for.

Soyachunks Patties

For the last two year, the Santa was none other than her dad. Yes, on Christmas eve my hubby would dress up like Santa and bring gifts for her. But this time it was not him. Do you know why?????

The last two Christmas when he became Santa, my daughter had a doubt on where her father goes, whenever Santa comes to meet her. Though we tried to reason it out by giving some or, the other excuse, she was never convinced. Kids are smarter than us, you see.The last year, she noticed the ring in his hand and told her Dad that Santa was wearing the same kind of ring that he wears. And we had to cook up another story for her. Her dad explained to her that Santa takes the looks of people that she loves and that is why he was wearing a ring similar to that of her dad’s.

She took it, but again with some element of doubt.

Hence, this time we had to ensure that we do it a little different and that we do not repeat the mistakes from the last year. After all she is growing and fooling her was becoming all the more difficult. But we wanted to keep the surprise, at least for another year.

So this time we told her uncle to play the role of Santa for her. And we ensured that he is covered from top to bottom with the mask and gloves on. So that she does not have any doubt again. I played the Jingle bell song on our sound system and the whole mood was real good.

I felt really good, it was like a fairy tale moment for every one of us. 🙂

And finally Santa came and she stood there at the door, stunned and awed with her hands spread out, waiting for Santa to shower her with all the gifts and chocolates he had got for her. She was happier this time round because her dad was just beside her witnessing all that was happening. That was what she had wanted always.I just can’t forget her expression at that moment. I missed taking a videos of that moment. 🙁 Somehow I was able to click a few pictures which didn’t come out that good due to the darkness in the room. We had to deliberately darken the room so that she is unable to recognize the man behind the Santa.

Another Christmas with loads of fun and love.

How was your holidays? Did you go out somewhere or, enjoyed the holiday at home itself?

Soya Chunks Cutlet Recipe

I have long been planning to make this recipe. I had tried it out some time back and since then I have been planning this video.

I have used Soya Chunks kheema in this recipe. In fact, all that I did was soak the soya chunks for some time and then grind it in a mixer grinder. I don’t prefer buying Soya kheema from the stores because of the possibility of it being adulterated.

It took less than 15 minutes to make this soya chunks cutlet recipe excluding the time it took to boil the potatoes and soaking the soya chunks.

This is a nice recipe that kids will like. My daughter wouldn’t otherwise eat soya chunks, but this recipe was a nice way to make her eat soya. You can serve it along with tomato sauce or, if you prefer, with green chutney.
