#Bharatkazaika Post 2


In wikipedia language, Litti is a staple food of Bihar, and Eastern Uttar Pradesh. It is made of whole wheat flour and stuff with Sattu(Gram flour powder). Best Litties should be cooked in low fire of cow dung cake. The taste of Liiti lies on its stuffed material i.e.: sattu. Dry sattu is mixed with chopped garlic and ginger and some Indian dry species to give a tangy flavour.

First I would like to share a very traditional and popular way of Litti, along with chokha ,It is a dough ball made up of whole wheat flour and stuffed with Sattu (roasted chickpea flour) mixed with herbs and spices and then roasted over coal or cow dung cakes or wood then it is tossed with lots of ghee.Although very often confused with the closely related Baati, it is a completely different dish in terms of taste, texture and preparation. It may be eaten with yogurt, baigan bharta, alu bharta, and papad. The litti are traditionally baked over a cow-dung fire.

Although, for many reasons these days it become almost impossible to get this pure taste of litti chokha in cities or towns and specially when you are thousands of miles away from your own country, but for those who are extremely fond of this dish like me, able to find their way . So here comes my tadka, no, not mine actually my mom’s tadka, by turning litti chokha into sattu poori and chokha. I always been crazy about sattu poori and chokha since before my marriage, and after marriage there are so many changes takes place in one’s life but one thing was there ,that never changed for me Yesss Yess you got it right!!!!!! My all time favorite, my love for sattu poori , which hit the top list there too.

It has all the ingredients as similar to pure Litti with only difference of frying instead of baking in fire, baking can be done in oven also but that recipe i will share some other time. the core taste of sattu poori comes from it filling only so, here I share my recipe of making delicious sattu poori and chokha.

#BlogchatterA2Z TIME


The most precious thing one can gift to other is TIME .If someone gives you his time value it and respect it. The gift of time is often more valuable to the receiver and more satisfying for the giver than the gift of money. We don’t all have the same amount of money, but we all do have time on our hands, and can give some of this time to others when they are in its utmost need.

I strongly believe that if you give your precious time in someone’s need of hour nothing can above than this ,and when you performed your side well you moved a step higher towards happiness and satisfaction.In similar ways, same rule applies for those receivers also, one should respect it and grateful for whole life .Since a person is not given only time in his need but he has gifted him a part of life also like, ,some precious hours/days of his life,which indeed cannot be measured or returned back only and only deserves a huge respect and gratitude.Being honest with your own deeds gives an inner happiness.So spend your time sensibly who deserves to be given importance ,who not in your life,chalk it out wisely do not waste time on the people who doesn’t value you.TIME IS PRICELESS AND LIMITED IN EVERYONE’s STOCK,SO SPEND IT ON THOSE YOU TRULY LOVES YOU AND RESPECT YOU ,VALUE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!

#BlogchatterA2Z Zest For A Happy Life


“If things don’t come easy, there is no premium on effort. There should be joy in the chase, zest in the pursuit”. Branch Rickey.

A word Zest reminds me of a very interesting book I read couple of months ago “ZEST OF HAPPINESS ” by Melina Nardi Story about three different boys,living three different and an awful childhood.
1989 in Chargulli, Pakistan. Sameer loves running after chickens and stealing apples from his neighbors. He has no idea that soon enough his life will change drastically as the Russians leave Afghanistan and the Talibans are slowly taking over the region. 1989 in Naples, Italy. Nicola loves watching Beppe make pizza and hates doing subtractions. He wonders where his mother is taking him as she runs through the peach and olive trees, further and further away from home. 1989 in Santiago, Chile. Juan is a lonely child who has been taught to hide in the shadows. He hears all around him that Pinochet is gone, that democracy has been restored, so why does his father still feel fear in his guts every time he leaves the house? Inspired from real persons, based on true facts, this novel reveals the untold stories of many people around the globe who are struggling to find their own life destinations, despite oppression, humiliation and confusion. They are immigrants, activists, guerrilleros.or simply human beings with a wandering heart, but all of them have an admirable zest for happiness.

Zest is defined as living life with a sense of excitement, anticipation, and energy. Approaching life as an adventure; such that one has “motivation in challenging situations or tasks”. Zest is essentially a concept of courage, and involves acquiring the motivation to complete challenging situations and tasks. Those who have zest exude enthusiam excitement and energy while approaching tasks in life. It is a positive trait reflecting a person’s approach to life with anticipation, energy, enthusiasm and excitement. The most universal and distinctive mark of happy people is zest. With zest one has more interests which bring more opportunities for happiness.

#BlogchatterA2Z Quality Over Quantity


“As Aristotle said, ‘Excellence is a habit.’ I would say furthermore that excellence is made constant through the feeling that comes right after one has completed a work which he himself finds undeniably awe-inspiring. … “Excellence comes when we balance quality with quantity.”

“Excellence comes when we balance quality with quantity.” 
― Amit Ray,

Shine of quality cannot be compare with shine of quantity.Abundance of anything can bring happiness, if you feel happy with the tag “LOTS OF” somewhere you will comprosing with the term quality whether it is about your friends, clothes, gadgets ,toys,parties etc. It doesn’t matter how much of something you have ,what matters is the quality of what you have. By gripping on what is important for you through choosing quality over quantity proceed to strainless as well as a happy life . You will find more enriched and affluent life by choosing things, relationships, and experiences ,in lieu of choosing more of everything. There is nohard and fast rule of choosing quality over quantity. It is simply a matter of valuing yourself by choosing sophastication.
If we don’t make the decision to value ourselves then we will constantly find ourselves in a place that lacks meaning and depth. Over time, this can destroy our lives.

#BlogchatterA2Z Youthfulness


“Youthfulness is not determined by age. It is determined by one’s life force. One who possesses hope is forever young. One who continually advances is forever beautiful”. Daisaku Ikeda

“To find joy in work is to discover the fountain of youth.” ~Pearl S. Buck

Who else out there just like me ,wants youthfulness till the last breath,Of course, not by the age but by being energetic. No one can control the age but, growing old happily and lively definitely is in our hands. Youthfulness refers to playfulness, enthusiasm, being child-like, energetic, innocent, and hopeful.
It clearly shows you are dwelling in a time of vigor, energy and zeal. Being a youth means happiness and laughter. It is never about your age or your gender or even your marital status, being a youth is more of a mindset rather than a form. Challenge yourself to try new things, learn new ideas, and develop new skills. .Bring your attention repeatedly to the present moment, through formal mindfulness meditation or informal mindfulness practice. It can help you to appreciate this moment, rather than becoming lost in regrets about the past or imagining future deterioration.Develop a sense of meaning in life.

#BlogchatterA2Z Uniqueness


 “Be unique instead of best. Because being best just makes you no. 1, but being unique makes you the only one!”

“Embrace your uniqueness. Time is much too short to be living someone else’s life”.    Kobi Yamada  

Explore your identity which you can say purely owned by you .Have you ever felt the power of being in your own tashan? When you say, “I don’t care. This is how I am and I love it!”, it adds a lot of weight to you and your personality. Owning your own unique character is a prime accelerator of one’s confidence level. Each person has their own unique whim,a special trait , that you may have learned ,but feel like these are not the best qualities you could own, you may want to detach from those skills, but the truth is you should embrace those parts of speciality of yourself. You need to claim and accept them high headed , so you can reach your potential and share those skills with others.

Being different,being unique is always beautiful as well as daring .It is a state of standing out from other common crowd. This could be the personality,course of action, beliefs, morals,values anything. There has been more than forty presidents in America, but; Abraham Lincoln stands out as the one who freed slaves. William Shakespeare’s writings were unique from those time writers and this is the reason we remember him today.

You will meet plenty of people in your life, following the common steps society,struggling to fix their position in the crowd with the baggage of FEAR of being LEFT OUT from the so called circle/society,without thinking for a once about their values,their views; they are happy in proving their false presence, by killing the uniqueness of their personality and thoughts ,but in life we remember only those who hold their unique quality not the crowd. Thats why FOR ME UNIQUENESS IS A COURSE OF ACTION OF DARE WITH SUSTAINABILITY INTO THE CROWD MORE THAN A TRAIT TO EMBRACE. Save your happiness by reconizing your unique quality ,work on it and conquer the world of inner happiness.

#BlogchatterA2Z Patience


” Patience is not simply the ability to wait – it’s how we behave while we’re waiting”. Joyce Meyer

“God has perfect timing; never early, never late. It takes a little patience and it takes a lot of faith but it’s worth the wait.” Anonymous

“Patience is the ability to accept trouble, suffering, and delay without getting angry or upset. I feel like if you can master patience, you can master anything.”-Sean Anderson

“To lose patience is to lose the battle.” Mahatma Gandhi

Patience is all about the self-control that shows you can handle your body,mind,attitude,behavior,words even when times get tough.It helps the person to look outside of himself. In short, exhibiting patience shows that you have a high moral standard in life.It helps you make better decisions in life that can quite literally save your life. When you are not anxious to do something or get something, you take time to think about it and come to the best solution possible. On the other hand, when you are impatient to get your desired goal
quickly you can easily make wrong decisions.

Practising patience is a not lesser than the challenge to a daily life and key to a happy one. Having patience means being ability to perform calmly in even the worst , therefore,wherever there is adversity we have the opportunity to practice it. At home with our kids as a parent or vice versa, at work with our colleagues, at the shopping mall with public around,only patience can make the difference between roughness and gentleness, between worry and calmness. For the peaceful mind and life one need embrace himself with the virtue of patience.
