Chicken Tikka Naan Pizza 7474_10


It needs no describing that this is pretty much an Indian flavored pizza.  Nothing new or original. Naan pizzas are everywhere. Or are they called “Naanizza”?  I came across that recently!

Shrikhand 7358_5

Hello all and a very Happy New Year! We wish for the best and hope this year brings in the best for everyone.

I have been gone for a while: away from technology, and all social media,  spending the most precious time with my family for the past few weeks. It was indeed the long desired, required and a replenishing break for all of us. We are going to be missing one another now. But life has to move ahead, right? I hope all of you have had a good holiday as well and is ready to start this year.
