CAPSICUM COTTAGE CHEESE SIDE DISH
I hope you enjoyed your Rakhi Celebration fullest. It was a very hectic day but full of excitement. First to preparation for the guests (my husband's sisters) and then rushing to my mom's home for the celebration. Kids were just roaming around, enjoying sweets, gifts, different kind of rakhis. Nowadays there are also rakhis for Bhabi (Brother's wife/sister-in-law) So my hands are also full. I like it very much, especially hanging rakhis.
Now to my mom's home. There are more kids as we all sisters and brothers celebrate together. So thali prepared there is different from this thali. It was very difficult to handle them as all boys were eager to have a cartoon rakhi tied on their hands, all cute girls were excited for their gifts. You know it took one hours to complete their rakhi session. Even these days we sisters also tie rakhis to each other hands heheheh.

- I have cut and puree half of the onion and tomatoes your can make more puree and cut only one onion and tomato in strips.
- I do not long thin strips of capsicum you can make them more thin as per your choice.
- Choose your own spices. For me these were just perfect.
