Hello world!

Macroli Patata~A guest Recipe

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

 

It all started when I tried to call my mom in India and wanted to talk to her.I could not(due to some reasons) so the whole day passed thinking of the good old days I had with my parents when I was living with them. Days ,months , years,and even decades have passed that I have moved away from India and now I live here with my husband and 2 children.Each  day I come home from work I try to prepare a meal that we all have a liking for.Somehow never have been able to convince my son who says Bhaji should not exist.So I always have something special for him just like the way my mother did when I was younger.
My daughter on the other hand has learnt to eat anything and everything and a HUGE THANKS goes to INDIA,and our India trips.Then, there is my husband who was so picky when we got married but times change and anything that I put on the table nowadays is always appreciated.
Now back to myself,I remember When we went out with Mom and Dad and come home late we asked her to make this wonderful slurpy  soupy MACROLI PATATA, thats what we called it back then in India.So soon as I got home, I went straight to the pantry, got out the Elbow Macaroni and started to cook this dish.Its so simple and yet Indian but very Sindhi recipe.
