The first time I walked into a Walmart store here in Orlando, I was just amazed at the size of the store! Never before had I seen any store this size in Oman or Dubai or India. I was just speechless as I walked through the whole store. I have a habit of picking up a momento of a place I go to for the first time and which I like. I picked up this recipe from the store:-) Those were the days when I missed Zaar like a fish without water!!! Hop you enjoy this!
