Today the day started with my daughter laky waking up at around 4'clock saying mummy today iam going to school get up.Then i and my hubby both got up and saw the time and we said her its only 4clock,you can sleep upto 6clock.we made her ready as today is her first day for school in Uk ofcourse she is going to primary one.we reached the school and we left her in classroom and we moved to parents meeting.But suddenly we have seen laky crying and coming with her madam.Her madam said she is little bit upset and she asked me to come along with laky to her class..and finally she was in class.

As today i was planning to prepare some Fried rice,but i found onions are little,then i searched my fridge and found Cauliflower and i thought what would i make with gobi .Then i searched my recipe book and found gobi masala.Coming to recipe the Gobi masala came really nice and hubby dear liked it very much..
