Refreshing Cup of Balinese Coffee

Hey lovely #CFOTers!! Hope you got a chance to go read our Bali Experience and hoping that it gave you some insight about Bali if you have it in your wanderlust. Adding an addendum with this article about our visit to Kedai Amertha Coffee & Meals, a humble coffee shop at Tanah Lot.

We Indians very fond of our cutting Chai (Tea) & Coffee at street side stalls especially in the evenings. So after a beautiful sunset at Tanah Lot, on our way back, we ended up asking our driver : 'Don't you have a street side stall for Coffee or Tea'. Driver might have  not understood that we were looking out for a  Chai Tappri 😀 but he judged that we craved for a hot beverage. After awhile he asked "Need a coffee?" and we beamed with a loud Yes!, he immediately took an U turn in the middle of the road, drove about 100 feet and parked the car and informed "You get Good local coffee here !"
And we were happy souls!! We were in front of a small shack structure named Am…

Ghar Ki Murgi Dal Barabar

A famed proverb, Ghar Ki Murgi Daal Barabar,  when literally decoded means that even a dish as delish as chicken if cooked at home is an equivalent to the homemade dal (lentil soup) which is blaah in taste.  
On the contrary, We love our homemade Dal Rice or Varan Bhat (वरण भात ). Nothing is as soothing a steam Rice, bubbly hot वरण (daal), with तूप (Ghee or clarified butter), accompanied with mango pickle & fried papad. Ohhh .... my my.... Food Heaven. 

Dal is highly undermined dish. Being the easiest source of plant protein , dals must be incorporated into our food plans often to have a wholesome balanced diet. Plus these pulses are so versatile with few value additions of spices and veggies they are a healthy comfort food by themselves.
They are so many variations of dal recipes available on the internet that even if we plan to make one new recipe in a week then in an year we would oddly be trying out 50 new variants of dal. Howz that???  😆
Dal is an ideal way to camouflage va…

Our Top 5 Shopping Sites or Apps

There was a time when AmHi would spend time gazing through the aisles of a grocery store, checking out different products, plan meals and then stand in the long queue without any annoyance  at the billing counter gossiping about life in general.

But since #crazyfoodieonliltoes came into our lives, Physical Shopping has a been a big NO! The little man just cannot handle stores. We have tried taking him to different stores,big small, but take him in inside a shop and he just loses his cool and we lose our patience.

That's how we first turned to online shopping and then of course the array of offers available do leverage this choice. So bringing to you our top 5 apps/ sites where we love shopping.

Am-ch-Hi .... Engagement Story :)

No, it is not an extraordinary tale. No, it is not very bollywood-y either.
And no we did not elope in order to conquer our love😆 [ ......Ok,we did talk about running away couple of times when our parents were still in the phase of analyzing if this was "THERISHTA"😀 ]

But, it is worth sharing with our readers. So here it is.....

Rewinding two months back from the engagement, we met via Loksatta Matrimonial Ad. Yep, as cliche as it gets my parents had "advertised" me (my profile) in a very popular marathi newspaper to which my father-in-law (FIL) had reverted and my mother had acted upon by enforcing "the  स्थळ evaluation process".

Those who are not aware about this process let me give you a quick summary from start-to-finish.
