Well well well now that I got some time to sneak in my reasons of sudden disappearance or my blog being silent for a long 2 months...yes I do owe you an explanation because you are the best bunch of people whom I have come across and we share the same love - the love for food! Our lives ( Me + hubbs) took a sharp turn, we had an untimely death in our family..yes suddenly I lost my dad-in-law, we immediately left for India and took time to cope up with the loss and figure things out! Now, that I am back my 5 years old just started his official school life and his very first too, he is a Kindergartener! An excitement that's hard to control and gives immense reasons to celebrate, don't ask me about my routine though I am still trying to cope up with my new routined life that revolves around my son's new school schedule. So that's that, I missed sharing the joy of new or old school recipes, I missed replying back to your wonderful comments, I missed this tiny space and I missed you all. Hope to bring in many new recipes sooner and hope to warm up this tiny place all over again! So let's get cooking eh....
Quick Prawns and Leek Stir Fry under 30 mins! Prawns recipe, easy prawn and leek recipe.

I developed this wonderfully tasty Quick Prawn & Leek stir fry under 30 mins in one such beautiful evening when my prawn crazy soul was deliberately yearning for a super fast prawn recipe that could be churned up at lightenings pace. Of course, I was busy enough to spend a lot of time in my kitchen that day, thanks to that I developed this awesomeness altogether from scratch! 
Quick Prawns and Leek Stir Fry under 30 mins! Prawns recipe, easy prawn and leek recipe.

Well, I truly admit that leeks are not used in my kitchen quite often, we seldom use it and when need be, it's not that we don't like it but in an Indian kitchen I never grew up eating or seeing this vegetable at all! I was very curious to use leeks and to my utter surprise, this broad-leafed green veggie surprised me with its mild flavor, it tastes somewhat similar to a mild onion and completely transforms a recipe and takes it to that extra level of awesomeness! Once you try out this recipe you will completely understand what exactly I mean to say:) The green leafy part of leeks is generally discarded as they are tough and fibrous or sometimes used to prepare and boost the flavor of any vegetable stock. I have used the white portion of leek just above the roots and also the tender light green parts for this recipe.
