Cooking, photography, work ,shopping, daily chores, my daughters school and her activities, packing for a month long trip to india and more are all activities i’ve been entangled in. I have had no time to sit and breathe. Now finally when i am flying, i get the time to sit , and ponder over my last few days. This happens with me every time i am travelling.

Does this happen with you as well? Last few days before my travel are always so so very crazy!

Amidst all this wild mayhem ( going on in my mind) in the last few days i had received these amazing blend of spices from Spiceway UK, which i used in a few of my very interesting recipes, butttt i wasn’t getting any time to post these recipes.

Scoop the balls of melon , watermelon  and mango and keep in the refrigerator to be chilled till you cut and prepare the rest of the ingredients. When you scoop out the balls, a lot of fruit goes waste, so do not throw it away. Just peel and keep that separately and I will tell you later how I used that fruit.

 Cut chunks of cucumber, crumble a little feta cheese, and tear a few fresh mint leaves.
