1- Road conditions for higher tourist places are not good and it seems they did it on purpose.Why? No idea!

2- My friend and her husband got permission because they had a very good SUV. Mahindra or Jeep.

3- Sikkim is best place to travel if you have great SUV. But cooperate with local
authorities. They are also sick of people who take their old cars with rotten old engines and later create traffic chaos or breakdowns for them to help.

4- If they have certain rules, they do have reasons for it.

5- Keep their state clean. Keep your garbage in car, use dustbins and follow local guidelines.

6- Do not click pictures of their females without asking. They might feel offended and curse you high.

7- Do not pressurize their eateries to cook some thing over spicy like ghar ka khana type. What they have enjoy. Their food is one of the best organic one in India.

8- Last and least, avoid discussing politics with vendors. They are not interested.

9- Mobile won’t do much to the real magnificent beauty of Sikkim. Take a very good quality camera with you for sure.

10- Ask each person to click their own photos. (Must). Lot many times they click amazing unexpected pics. Sikkim is amazingly beautiful.

11- Keep your maximum government id’s photocopies in good number. Authorities might ask you for a copy at many places.

12- Take only prescribed medicines with authorized medicine practitioners . So that if you need them, you can get.

Se Sikkim! Good luck!

Did you checked these points before buying a wooden spice box?

Let me clear one point politely that if you have ancestral wooden spice box already, that must be of very good wooden quality. But now a days things has been changed a lot. Even quality of wood. Isn’t it?

So first of all you need to check that if the spice box you are infatuated with, comes from a piece of curated wood or non curated one. That really matters.

Even if your vendor tells you that box’s wood is curated, you need to run some edible neem oil and keep the box in hard sunlight for few days.So that bugs can not enter or mutate further in the spices. This will also prevent from spices to get inedible due to wood’s own smell.

Now a days many online websites are offering wooden spice boxes. They look royal and very elegant indeed. So I was curious and asked my relative to check for one in India (Delhi). She told me very shocking truths. Her known one shop keeper told her that he bought few but he returned them after few days because loads of complaints started bombarding him from the customers. Let me elaborate some points further.

1- Wood quality – If it is actually made with good quality mango or sheesham wood it will cost your more than 5000 Indian rupees. If it is cheap it is going to be damaged very soon.

2- Wood easy place for absorbing & mutating – Yes! If your wooden box is made of cheap quality wood and polish is also bad, it will mutate with germs and tiny bugs very rapidly. Within few months you will see many tiny black ones in your spices. As well as wood keeps absorbing freshness and smell of your spices in it. Very soon turmeric and dhania powder looses its fragrance.

3- Cleaning issues – You can not wash it. If you have intentions to clean it and dry it, you need hard n strong sunlight to do so. If you will try to wash and later dry it in oven, it might get on fire or burn.

4- Company matters – If it comes from a very good company on a good price with quality assurance than only it is worth buying.

5- Extra use – When you buy it a face issues with it later, you keep it in your puja room for storing haldi kumkum rice kapoor etc. or you can keep art and crafts material in it like sequins, tiny pearls etc in it.

Just check yourself other points as well. Like how moist or dry your kitchen is? How you have plans to use it as well.

It is majorly quite expensive online. Try yo buy it from stores or through any relative in India for cheaper value and brand assurance.

*Each 20 spice boxes ordered online will cost a tree his life. Save trees.

How to buy pure desi ghee?

1- Try to buy Kerala’s ghee. There is a reason for it. Kerala government’s adulteration rules are very strict for adulteration.
2- If a ghee is jammed with something white at down it is mixed with dalda.
3- Go to a shelf of desi ghee. Check for Ghadeer or Milma or Nambisan. Quality can be checked in a easy way. Pure and best ghee never jammed on shelf at lower level.
4- The more expensive it is, more quality wise purity.
5- In India best n pure desi ghee is very expensive as they are named GRADE 2 desi ghee. Check on amazon India website.

Panvadi Sharbat’s recipe.

Well! Each year I bring bit of mukhvaas and dry pan etc from India for some munching cravings.

Kids in gulf countries are not much aware of the churans or pan masalas or mukhvaas traditions like we used to munch a lot. They actually, are not even interested too for these trying such things.

But I like pans so much being a UP wala that I continuously miss my childhood days.

So I had this Snowpeek box and it was saved for rainy days(Lols). I knew one recipe from my friends mother in law in Aligarh. She used to call that paan ki thandai. So I made it too. Except fresh green pans every thing else is there in this sharbat. All you need is to ask somebody to get a tin of Snowpeek for you from India.

If you are in India, you can ask any panvadi for this tin. Prices varies.

1- Almonds – 1 Cup

7- 4 Cups of milk

8- 6 Cups of freezing chilled water

9- 2-3 Cups ice cubes
