I have away from cooking past few weeks, whatever is happening in my kitchen its totally made by my maid.
But my inner ghost keeps me dragging into the kitchen at least once in a week to ensure I don't forget cooking 🙂 and it again won battle against me.
I know, I have been on and off from this space but I ensure to get the best from my kitchen to you all 🙂
Achari flavoured delicacies are my hubby’s favorite, so I mostly stock my kitchen pantry with some home made Achari Masala too...
You can serve this delicious Achari Bharwa baingan with paratha, phulkas and puris.
