I am a big fan of sweet corn or normal corn - Raw, Oven Roasted, Boiled or Grilled, am in it anytime for this wonderful snacker. World's 2nd longest urban beach is in Chennai, India called as Marina beach. This is the most common hangout place in Chennai, leisurely and breezy. What makes it more special is the street food sold there. From the wonderful bajji's or bonda's with chutneys hot from the stove to the savory Indian chat foods - its all available there.

When we were in Chicago I loved to Dine/Takeout from Panda Express. Delicious food chain with American Chinese dishes. They had a lot of varieties and I was a fan for Kung pao and Orange chicken but when I read through books on other varieties of chinese chicken, I read about Tso's chicken. When I had a chance to taste that in Asian Dynasty in Leigh Valley mall it was close to orange chicken. They did use some sweet sauce and have it deep fried. The original recipe in store or books don't call for vegetables along with it. Well I wanted this to be more of a lighter version or I can say a Healthy one, so I've totally avoided the part of deep frying, reduced the amount of using brown sugar and added vegetables in this recipe.

I always wonder the variety of curries from Northern India. One very popular dish from Rajasthan where people love spicy food is a purely vegan curry prepared in fact without vegetables. I got this recipe from my good friend Reetu Upadhyay. She is excellent with Punjabi and Marwadi recipes. She has been my guru for all North Indian Dishes.

4th of July is Independence day celebration in the USA. You see this Red, White and Blue theme everywhere. A day to have loads of outdoor fun and party, with the odor of barbecue and grill hanging in the air and beautiful fireworks ending the day. But the 4th of July is more special for our family that just that because its our WEDDING ANNIVERSARY. Its been 5 years of our Married life, facing the ups and downs of life together and supportin each other and living for one another :).
