kung pao mushroom soup

I have been having this urge to eat chinese food for sometime now, and on thursday evening I was like I want to have something chinese. Wanted to try my hand at making my favourite "Manchow Soup" something I have never made before, and i always have without fail when I go to any restaurant in India. Maybe the reason I have not made it is, I am afraid I will not be able to re-create the restaurant style flavor. Anyways this time I didnt have all the ingredients for manchow too, (manchow has many veggies) but I knew the taste I desired and after a  quick look in my kitchen I decided I had enough ingredients to get to that taste. I have named this soup "Kung Pao Mushroom Soup", purely Rhythm's recipe :) I call it Kung Pao as I used Kung Pao sauce I had at home. If you have a different stir fry sauce that you like or use, you may use that, as long as you like the sauce flavor you ll like the soup, as that is the flavor of the soup.

Ingredients: (serves 2)

Happy Father's Day :)

As I sit to pen few words for my dad...I wonder where to begin..
A man of few words, my dad is the silent types. we (me and my sister) have always known how much he loves us.he always calls us his "dhingli" which means dolls...his presence always a silent strength..
but since I have been in USA and married, I have felt his presence in my life even more...
after the wedding, my dad told my husband privately "take care of my daughter"
when my husband told me this, i was like seriously??? I cant believe my dad said it, if my mom would have said it, i would not be surprised (those knowing my parents will understand why I am saying this)...
I mean, of course my husband is a good guy and he will take care of me, it is understood...
but the fact that, my dad said that meant the world to me....
there have been times, when I have not been sure of anything...
when doubts creep in, but I know one thing.
There is one man who wont let anything go wrong in my life...
who i can …

lessons learned from Yeh Jawaani Hai Diwani

Saw Yeh Jawani Hai Diwani last weekend.....this is not a movie review though...this is about some important life lessons conveyed in the movie in a very simple, easy going way....didnt make it preachy or too senti (well little senti but not an overdose) and very importantly without saying only THAT ONE WAY is right and other is wrong...

it is story of 4 friends...bunny, aditi, avi, and naina....story revolves mainly around Bunny (ranbir kapoor) who is a free spirited youngster wanting to explore the world...he doesnt want to be tied to a place or person...naina is exact opposite, she wants to be rooted in the place she has grown up in...wants to live in the city close to her parents and friends...the beauty of the story is in the second part when the friends meet for aditi's wedding after 8 years....Bunny has achieved his dream, has a job with travelling show...seen numerous cities in world...naina has lived her dream, owns a clinic....

i liked the bunny VS naina sequence, the yo…
