Plain Puri

"Carol had requested for these. Puri is something every Indian loves, no matter from which part of India he/she comes. Generally, we make these on festival times, such as on Diwali which was on 14th Nov. this year. Puri-Bhagi is an excellent combination to have puris. The day puris are to be made, I skip eating even a biscuit in the morning after exercise, puris are really tasty"

<p>Hi Everybody! Thanks for stopping by in my little niche of the mighty Zaar world. <br />Here is a quick link to the beauty recipes I've posted (highest rated so far): <br /> <br />A few things I've done:- <br /> <br />1. Worked part time as a Telemarketer in Oman in the Crowne Plaza Hotel. <br /> <br />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. <br /> <br />3. Written nearly 1000 poems several of which have been published in leading newspapers, ezines and magazines both in Oman and India. <br /> <br />4. Worked as a Moderator on - my BEST and FAVOURITE site on the internet. <br /> <br />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. <br /> <br />I love researching on the mythology of ancient Goddesses and then condensing my research into poems. <br /> <br />In the mood to gift me something? Here's what I'd love - A Nissan 350Z {my dream car}</p>
