    This was delicious. Very easy to put together. I chilled it over night and had it for lunch the next day with cold jasmine rice. I will make this often. Thanks for the great recipe Char.

    Oh this was so good. I had this for lunch today. Didnt use the corriander as I had non so used parsley. Needed to cut down on the spices just a tad but otherwise this was amazing.

    Charishma, this was really good and really easy to make (I cheated and used canned chickpeas). It's got yummy flavours, and I found a recipe on 'zaar to make the chat masala (recipe #99). I want the 10 year old girl to come live at MY house!


Hi Everybody! Thanks for stopping by in my little niche of the mighty Zaar world. Here is a quick link to the beauty recipes I've posted (highest rated so far): A few things I've done:- 1. Worked part time as a Telemarketer in Oman in the Crowne Plaza Hotel. 2. Worked as a Certified Professional Tarotist (Tarot Card Reader) and done accurate predicitions for many people from different parts of the world, most memorable of which is the reading I did for my college Law lecturer and it came true. 3. Written nearly 1000 poems several of which have been published in leading newspapers, ezines and magazines both in Oman and India. 4. Worked as a Moderator on - my BEST and FAVOURITE site on the internet. My other interests include: Numerology, Vaastu Shastra, Feng Shui, Face Reading, Reiki and Astrology! I am really very keen on getting well-versed with metaphysical sciences such as Astrology, I-Ching, Feng Shui, Runes, Enneagram, Kabbalah and many more. I love researching on the mythology of ancient Goddesses and then condensing my research into poems. In the mood to gift me something? Here's what I'd love - A Nissan 350Z {my dream car}
