Chicken Kurma for a Special friend..

IMG_1441

Living far away from my home country was so aweful for me in the beginning.I was feeling so lonely and miserable especially when the weather outside is so gloomy and chilly.Family, friends,homely foods,festivals ..list goes on...I missed all of these :( But like any other person I too adjusted soon, made lot of friends and they are like a family to me now.

Today when my typing this I m little bit sad because one of my friend 'N' is going back home (Japan) after living more than half of her life here. I m happy for her as she can be with her family and friends but its soo sad when our friends say goodbye to us.One day she had lunch with us and she loved the chicken curry I prepared for her, since her birthday is coming soon I thought I should share my chicken Kurma for her as a birthday gift. I guess it will be a little surprise for her as she doesnt know about my blog.
