BLUEBERRY AND STRAWBERRY PARFAIT
3RD BLOG ANNIVERSARY
Three years have passed, time is flying. I am glad that I have reached this milestone, and I am looking forward to sharing and learning more with the help of this blog. When I started this blog, I never thought that blogging is so much fun. For me, the more I share recipes on my blog, the more I enjoy this journey of blogging.
This journey of blogging was really beautiful and I have enjoyed each and every moment of these three years, thoroughly. This joyful journey was not possible without the support of my family members, a big hug and big thanks to all my family members. Here I would like to give special thanks to my son-in-law for his time and patience in taking enormous and awesome photos for my blog. Check his website.
I would also like to thank all my friends, readers, followers and my blogger friends who always visited, checked my recipes and read my stories and commented on it. A big thank you for your continuous support not only on the blog but also on different social medias. Your support is my greatest treasure, which I want to keep with me forever, and looking forward to this enormous support in future too.
These three years have been more enjoyable also because of the three main publishers who have supported, trusted me and gave me the chance to publish about myself and my recipes. I really felt honored and would like to thank them once again.
On 26th February 2015, my story and two recipes were published in the “Airdrie Life” magazine of Airdrie Alberta. Later I shared those recipes on my blog. In April 2016, six of my recipes and my story were published in Vancouver-based “Darpan” magazine. Later I shared all those recipes on my blog as well. The third one is “Here's the Scoop” a local weekly, Airdrie newspaper of Alberta, who continuously supported me in these three years, where my recipes were published many times under the heading- “Recipe of the week”. Check all those recipes and my story under publications on my blog's main page.
I love all my recipes which I shared so far on my blog, and it is difficult to choose the best three recipes amongst them. But for me, it is more important to know the recipes that my readers liked the most. So here I want to mention my three most viewed recipes so far, which my readers really liked. My first most viewed recipe is “Savoury baked cake”, in which I have used fresh fenugreek leaves, which is a very healthy herb; this recipe seems to have originated amongst the Indians of South Africa. One of my friends in Botswana introduced me to this recipe a long time ago.
My second most viewed recipe is Dry black chickpeas, a side dish and a post on a famous Indian blend of spices called “Garam masala”. This masala is used in many Indian and Asian cuisines in snacks, stews, dry and wet vegetables preparations and curry recipes.
My third most viewed recipe is “Instant Naan”, which is the famous Indian baked flat bread, available throughout the world in almost all Indian restaurants. This is a very popular dish throughout Europe. North America and in many other countries. In my blog, I have shared many types of Indian flat breads but this one is the most popular one.
Coming to the recipe, this is a very simple but elegant recipe for a healthy breakfast, which is mainly just assembling the healthy ingredients together. I only made the compote with strawberries and sugar, which took only 5 minutes.
- 1/2 cup granola
- 1 and 1/2 cup greek yoghurt
- 2 tbs chia seeds and 2 tbs milk
- 1/2 cup strawberries
- 2 tbs sugar
- 2 tbs water
- Soak Chia seeds in 2 tbs milk.
- Chop strawberries finely.
- Add 2tbs sugar, 2tbs water and heat in a saucepan; when mixed, add strawberries to make compote, cook for five to six minutes and leave it to cool.
- Arrange in tall serving glasses; start with yogurt then strawberry compote followed by chia seeds, few blueberries and two tbs granola.
- Repeat the same order again, this is served cold.
