This movie called Selfie, has changed a bit of me. Sometimes you just need to be yourself; the people around can make you feel inferior or superior but you must be YOU. Do what you want, do what you think is right-you cannot please everyone every time. People will judge you, advice you but you don’t have to care. You decide to be or not to be, to wear makeup or not; to be a stay at home mom or a working mom; to wear skirts or cover your body; to be with boys or girls; to have a tattoo or pierce your body.  Simple, right? Who are they to tell you when to have kids, why not to be a house wife, why to go to office? It’s your life and only you know and understand you :-) Just check the video out and I am sure you will love it too :).

After moving to London; I wanted to stay at home, give time to my newly married life, explore the lovely city and just relax. Cooking became my addiction and passion and that is when this blog was born. When people asked me what I did whole day sitting at home? I explained them, I keep myself busy – I read, I cook, I blog, I do food photography, I take care of my house etc etc. Oh so you don’t work, you don’t get a job in London, they would ask me. One day I wrote a post on confessions of food blogger, and now when people ask me, I just give them the link.

I am vegetarian by choice and in fact no one in my family eats meat or fish. My dad eats eggs and so do I. My in laws eat simple food without onion and garlic. That’s their choice, when I was getting married, I was asked to shun eggs. I bluntly refused. Mr. Husband understood and I was allowed to cook eggs at home. He travels a lot for his office purposes, being a vegetarian he sometimes can’t get anything to eat and there are times when he has to survive on canned juices for the whole day. I knew something had to be done.One day, I decided to make Anda Bhurji. I presented anda burji as paneer burji because it is very much like paneer bhurji in texture and color. That is how he began eating eggs and now when he is in some foreign land he atleast can eat an omelet ;-)

Anda bhurji is scrambled eggs but Indian style. In it goes Indian spices, veggies. In Mumbai you get anda burji with pav (pull part roll buns) on streets and some restaurants also sells bhurji parathas- both the combinations are tasty. The roadside vendors in Bombay make it on pav bhaji tava and that is what gives it a unique taste. Garlic, onion and tomato are the must-to-go veggies in Anda Burji and you can also use peas, capsicum as well.
