She is Special

Hope you folks had a great Valentine's.

Last week has been fun filled with all the shopping I did for Sapna. I like to give surprises but since I am buying stuff for her for the first time am anxious to know if she likes the stuff. So I thought I'd show it to her on the blog while my readers get to comment on the choice too.

She is 25, slim, working woman and someone ;) thinks she is the most beautiful lady!

I feel she is special too !!


Patti collar with front slit neckline on the Batik kurta and the bright pink kurta with a deep V.

Both are cotton, 40 length and can be worn with pants as well as salwar.

A straight wrap-around skirt having paisley print and contrast patchwork top

AND

Sarees from Nalli, you have to experience shopping there even non saree wearers like me get motivated. Humm...to buy...She too is not into sarees but then some occassion are meant to be...

Cotton sarees with thread work

A Pochampalli silk saree, Maroon and Yellow, it is the Haldi Kumkum combo with designs on the body.

A Kancheepuram silk saree, tassels on the pallu, bright green border with zari and threadwork. Dhup-chaav (double shades) body of lavender and gold. This one just glitters.


My friend Deepa gave me this pouch. I am going through a motherly phase right now so I requested permission from Deepa to let me keep it for Sapna. She said it was for me but I know she understands because she too keeps away the best for Ahana! :)

This much till Sapna gets to see the actual stuff. Till then I will still be anxious...

Hi Anjali,
I follow/read ur blog regularly,I think your blog is very very interesting and informative too.I need one information and I will be very glad if you could tell the name of this Maharastrian dish I've been cooking and having since quite some time its made from methi leaves, grinded green chillies & garlic and roasted & granded gound nut. I learned it when I was in Tuljapur for sometime and till date this dish is one of my all time fav dish.

Hi it is not clear from your description. But am guessing it could be a greens stir fry or a coarse chutney what we call Thecha in Marathi. I have never seen methi in thecha though. So the closest answer seems like methichi bhaaji with the ingredients you mention.

Lovely choice of Sarees. And really sweet of you to make a collection.
