20 Things you should do at work to impress your boss.

My book “Ask Prachi about life” is available on amazon and notion press website.

1- Reach office 5–10 minutes before your boss.This reflects your disciplined routine habits.Set multiple alarms to get up on time everyday.

2- Wear clean and well ironed clothes everyday. Cleanliness shows that you are taking a good care of yourself first.

3- Avoid wearing too many brands or lot many designer clothes. Keep yourself simple and humble. Showing off too many clothes and not repeating same dress for long time creates a kind of insecurity and hype about you. That is why highly fashionable people face criticism and useless stress at workplace.

4- Keep your desk clean and again without keeping expensive things like mug or flask on it. Don’t do that. Stay simple and clean.

5- Always cover your feet. This is a basic problem with multi Asian country people. Especially females. They have dirty feet without pedicure still they wear opem thick grey brown sandals in the name of comfort. Do not do that. Wear sports shoes or ballerinas but cover your feet. All the time.

6- Avoid strong perfumes. But stay fragranced. With pungent dirty smell of armpit and body odor everybody gonna dislike you hard. Same with panty liners. Females can smell it but they don’t pay attention that how much dirty their images goes around with that body smell.

7- Keep yourself updated about whatever is going on or about to come. But stay quite and do try to not to show off. Let your boss inform you.

8- Do not speak aloud, laugh aloud or stay close to opposite sex all the time. Bosses notice that but never mention that. They just make your image likewise.

9- Stay alert, focused with high attention to details.Keeping few empty folders, big envelops, blank papers and tit bits of stationary in a separate drawer makes you high in boss’s eyes.

10- Check twice. Before handing over anything to your boss, just check in one more time. Same with emails. My husband taught me this. Spelling errors or grammatical mistakes. You can improve yourself this way.

11- Never go too close to Boss’s Boss. He might get insecure. Envy you.

12- Avoid getting too personal. No discussions of personal issues. At all. Just stay reserve and mysterious. Open books have no charm.

13- No interest. Smile and tight lipped. This is the best way to react to any personal, political or office secret discussions in between you n boss. Let him speak and you just act like a puppet. No opinions. Stay quite.

14- Less weight in hand. Try to take smaller bags and lunch boxes or visible transparent bags to the office. It shows that you have to interest in taking things like office stationaries to home.

15- Last and most important thing. Less use of mobile or calls at workplace. This really matters. Do not get lured by what others are doing. Stay focused and avoid too much use of internet/technology in front of your Boss.

16- Treat everybody with great respect and never ever indulge in a fight or gossip crowds. Avoid insulting anybody.

17- Be on time. Projects, emails, correspondence just show your best and on time. Honesty reflects and same with commitments. Late work creates issues for your Boss’s performances as well. Let him be cooperated with your finest performances.

18- Ask questions and get full information about the work given by boss. They will feel proud and satisfied. Just do what they asked you to do. I remember that one of my boss was very much hyped about a presentation. So I asked him about the font size even. He guided me for more things like colors and backgrounds. This really matters. Be open and ask him about every thing in details. Lot many times even bosses need help.

19- Make an imaginary team. Check and keep in the mind that who can do what best at his potential. Suggest that if boss is in hurry or confusion. Speak softest way and check if he agrees to it or not. Boss will get the idea and may not that time but later he will use that tip.

20- Researches and drafts. Keep an eye around the upcoming things. Make few drafts and present to your boss so that he can save some time in doing it on time. I had around 30–35 drafts of emails to potential buyers. When my boss came to know, he asked for a copy and started using it a lot. He is still my best friend after so many years I left that company.

All the best.

Mango cheesecake without cheese.

Images are mine. Not so good but trust me, it tastes amazingly awesome.

Made mango cheese cake without cheese. And it turned out to be same to same like one high end restaurant’s Strawberry cheesecake. Thanks to that Chef friend who gave the tips(hidden secret). Recipe coming soon on my blog prachiable.com. #mangocheesecakebyprachi #mangocheesecakeatlrachiabledotcom #mangocheesecakerecipe

Thanks to my FaceBook Chef friend who works in a classic five star hotel, spilled the beans and told me this hidden secret recipe. It took only 10-12 minutes to fix this recipe.

There are many twists and turns to take this mango cheesecake recipe to another level.

Just remember that very soon many food bloggers and chefs are going to copy this easy peasy recipe and will claim that they invented it.

How to identify that they copy my recipe? Check today’s date 27TH JUNE,2019. Now next any recipe resembling mine is a theft. Clear theft.Haaaa Haaaa Haaaa Haaa

Half bowl already gone.What a yummmm treat. I made it with langda mango. Somehow I got it in Doha.

So here is the recipe ~

Ingredients

1- 1 Pack of Hide n Seeks vanilla cream biscuits

2- 1 Big langda mango’s sieved pulp

3- 1 Tin Puck cream

4- 1 Sachet of gelatin

5- 1 Cup hung curd

6- 1/2 cup water

7- 1 cup powdered sugar

8- 1/4 cup salted Kerrigold butter (any brand)

Method

1- Make a semi fine powder of cream biscuits in a food chopper or processor, mix in butter and again mix very well.

2- Now in a bowl, spread this powdered biscuits and press very hard with fingers and spoon.

3- In the food processor jar, mix in hung curd, half cup of powdered sugar, cream, half cup of mango pulp very well. Let it remain like that.

4- Now boil half cup of water and mix in gelatin sachet very well. Mix it until it dissolves fully.

5- Let it cool for few minutes and mix half it in cream pulp and half in mango pulp.

6- Spread the cream mix over the biscuits layer.

7- Keep it in fridge for 10 minutes.

8- Take out the bowl and carefully mix half cup of powdered sugar in the mango pulp and immediately spread it over the cream mix. Brush it or spoon it very lightly over the cream mix.

9- Either keep the bowl in the down section of the fridge for 6-8 hours or keep it in the freezer for 1-2 hours.

10- Before serving keep this cheese cake out side for 30-50 minutes so that you can slice it smoothly otherwise that biscuit layer won’t come out easily.

9 Points to check red flags in a company before you join.

1- Ask the interviewer that how long is the lunch break? 1 Hour means good, 30 minutes ok and 10–15 minutes means red flag. Visit that company during lunch break to see if people are really enjoying free time? 
2- Pantry facilities.(This matters as weirdo companies give only water but real good companies keep tea coffee milk water and other things in pantry). Just ask if they have equipped pantry)?
3- Do they ever call on weekends. Never means good but sometimes means they are snooty and blood suckers.
4- How they treat an employee if he takes emergency leave two times in a month for genuine reason? Ask it. And check the face of HR interviewer. You will get the answer.
5- If interview is in office itself check the dressing sense of the people walking around. Highly sophisticated means they are happy. Shabby means they are coming for just money, not enjoying work culture and working at lowest encouragement.
6- Check the interviewer’s own face and body language too. If he is crisp, happily smiling often and wearing nice clothes with good shoes, he is with good company. If he is extra strict and very proud and snooty that means he is getting quite good company and feels proud of being there. Commitment comes from good financial situations and less stress.
7- And best part is to check how females are in that office? Females are always happy heart. If they are getting paid on time and get good salaries and comfortable but highly disciplined working they pay for self dressing and looks. If they are looking shabby trust me they are under high stress.
8- Check for the helping staff around, if no-one around that means a lot but if lot many helpers around serving tea and coffee this shows they want their employees to focus and work more.
9- Last but most important thing, when you go for the interview check the cars in the parking lot. Males generally buy good cars if they are getting good salaries that too on time. 

10- Chairs. Last point. Check which kind of chairs they are providing to their staff? If it is very good and comfortable, they care and might be taking lot of work. Interior designers suggest now a days that chair is one of the major point to give a person that feel of not getting up early. But if the chairs are very bad and cheap, no matter what package they are offering to you, your health is going to suffer very badly.

11- Females and males. Well dressed up females means they are giving good packages, extra well dressed males means there is loads of politics and performance/work pressure in the atmosphere.

Let us improve our demands to Indian politicians.

🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

१- क्या आपने पूरे इंडिया में किसी राजयपाल को मुख्यमंत्री के काम में हस्तक्षेप करते देखा है जितना की दिल्ली में दिल्ली के उपराजयपाल टांग अड़ाते रहते हैं.

२- क्यों पूरे इंडिया में सरकारी स्कूलों में दिल्ली के सरकारी स्कूलों की तरह बायोमेट्रिक सिस्टम नहीं लगाए जा रहे हैं? ताकि शिक्षक सही समय पर आके पूरा समय बच्चो के विकास पर व्यतीत करें?

३- नेताओं के ऊपर सवाल उठाये जाते हैं, उनकी शिक्षा की डिग्रीयों पर आवाज क्यों नहीं उठायी जा रही है?

४- चुनाव आयोग को चाहिए की जिस तरह हर सरकारी नौकरी करने वाले की डिग्रीयों की जांच करवाई जाती है उसी तरह इन नेताओं की डिग्रीयों और आपराधिक रिकार्ड्स की भी जांच होनी चाहिए.

५- जिस नेता के ऊपर २ से ज्यादा गंभीर आपराधिक व् वित्तये अनियमितता मामले दर्ज हों उनको चुनाव न लड़ने दिया जाये.

६- मोदी सरकार की बुराई करने वालों से एक सवाल है. क्या आपने हाल के वर्षों में असमी हिन्दुओं के ऊपर कोई अत्याचार की घटना सुनी है? क्या आपने मुजफ्फरनगर के दंगे क्यों हुए थे उसकी सच्चाई जानने की जरुरत महसूस की है?

७- उत्तर प्रदेश में योगी जी बहुत बुरे लग रहे होंगे सबको. यादव परिवार के अरबों के बालू खनन के बारे में गूगल करके देखिये. आपको कई दिनों तक नींद नहीं आएगी.

८- अम्बानी परिवार की बेटी व् बेटे की शादी के विडिओ देखे होंगे आपने. जेवर साफ़ दिख रहा है. कभी लालू यादव, मुलायम सिंह, अमित शाह के परिवार के शादी के समारोहों इतने साफ़ फोटो दिखाए हैं मीडिया वालों ने?

९- मीडिया बिकी हुयी है, इनकी मदद से ही आम आदमी को बेवकूफ बनाके कोई न कोई फिर से कुर्सी पे बैठेगा.

१०- इन नेताओं से अब सरकारी कूड़ादान मांगो, अपने घर के आगे मांगो, उसको समय पे उठवाने और उस कूड़े का सही निस्तारण मांगो.

११ इन नेताओं को मजबूर करो की केवल पढ़े लिखे व् ईमानदार कैंडिडेट्स को चुनाव में उतारें.

१२- अगर किसी नेता का बच्चा चुनाव के मैदान में है पार्टी के टिकट से उसको वोट मत दो. भगा दो और जमानत तक जब्त करवा दो.

१३- आम आदमी पार्टी अगर प्राइवेट स्कूल्ज को फीस न बढ़ाने और बढ़ी हुयी फीस वापस करने पर बाध्ये कर सकती है तो मुंबई सरकार ये क्यों नहीं कर सकती जहाँ कई नामचीन प्राइवेट स्कूल्ज अरबों रुपए कमा रहे हैं. क्यूंकि सारे फ़िल्मी सितारे और उद्योगपति अपने बच्चे उन्ही दो तीन स्कूलों में पढ़ाते हैं.

१४- अगर गोवा की सरकार पेट्रोल पे सब्सिडी दे सकती है तो बाकी सरकारें क्यों नहीं दे सकती?

१५- इन सारे नेताओं से कहो की अगर अपने परिवार के लोगों को बढ़ावा देना बंद करोगे तभी बात आगे बढ़ेगी. वरना जाओ भाड़ में.

१६- हमारा सवा सौ करोड़ लोगों का देश है, हमको सिर्फ १०००० ईमानदार व् बेहद वादे लिखे लोगों को चुनना है जो हमारे देश को तरक्की के रस्ते पर आगे ले जाएँ. चाहें वो गरीब हों, किसी भी जाति के हों और किसी भी धरम के हों.

१७- अगर आज १०० मुस्लिम एक्सपोर्टर्स मिलके तय कर लें की गरीब मुस्लिमों के बच्चो के लिए फ्री टेक्निकल यूनिवर्सिटी बनानी है तो मुस्लिम गरीब तबके के बच्चे भी आगे बढ़ सकते हैं. पर न तो ये बड़े बड़े फ़िल्मी स्टार्स कुछ करते हैं न ये अमीर नेता न उद्योगपति. क्यूंकि गरीबो के बच्चों ने ही तो इनके मुरादाबादी कारखानों में लोटे घिसने हैं और भदोही में कालीन बनाने हैं. वोही हाल इन हिन्दू नेताओं का है जो बड़े बड़े उद्योगपति हैं और अब नेता बन गए हैं.

१८- अमरीका के लोग प्राकृतिक संसाधनों के बचाव के लिए लड़ाई लड़ रहे हैं, हमसे अपनी गंगा नदी के उत्थान के लिए नहीं लड़ा जाता. एक जुट होके इन नेताओं से सवाल जवाब होना चाहिए. इनको बढ़ए करना चाहिए की खुली प्रेस कॉन्फ्रेंस में गांव के लोगों को आदिवासिओं को उनकी शिकायतों को सुनें.

१९- जो लोग कहते हैं की गैस पहुंचाई, बिजली पहुंचाई उनसे ये पूछो की जो रह गए उनको पहुंचाई हैं न. उनसे पहले २०१४ तक जिनके पास गैस और बिजली थी उनको किसने पहुंचाई थी?

२०- भारत एक परमाणु शक्ति है, ये अभी चार साल में नहीं हुआ है, केरल में सौ प्रतिशत साक्षरता है, ये भी अभी चार साल में नहीं हुआ है, हरित क्रांति, संचार क्रांति, श्वेत क्रांति अभी चार साल में नहीं हुई थीं.भारत में कितने इंजीनियरिंग और मेडिकल कॉलेजेस हैं अगर उनको गिनने बैठोगे तो जो देश भर में आई टी आई और राज्ये स्तर के पॉलिटेक्निक्स का विशद जाल बिछा हुआ उनको भी भूल जाओगे. पॉलिटेक्निक के डिप्लोमा होल्डर इंजिनीयर्स भी बाद में खुद को डिग्री होल्डर बनाने के कई एक्साम्स दे सकते हैं. हमारे देश में शिक्षा विभाग कितना उच्च स्तर का है सब पढ़े लिखे जानते हैं. सं १९५१ में सबसे पहला आई आई टी खुल गया था हमारे यहाँ.

२१- हमारे पास कांग्रेस शासन में बना सेटेलाइट केंद्र इसरो है तो हमारे पास आरअसअस संचालित सरस्वती शिशु मंदिरों जैसे संसथान भी हैं जहाँ मुस्लिम बच्चे भी पढ़ते हैं.

२२- नेताओं को गालियां देने से कुछ नहीं होगा. इनको बाध्ये करना होगा की हमको समय पर कूड़ा उठाने वाला चाहिए, सडकों पर गड्ढे नहीं चाहिए, हर दस हजार के लोगों की आबादी के लिए एक एम्बुलेंस चाहिए, बड़ी कम्पनिओं को जोर देके ये करवाना होगा की अपने मुनाफे का ५ प्रतिशत देश के विकास में लगाए. महिलाओं के लिए सुरक्षा सुनिश्चित करें. बलात्कार के केसों में १५ दिन के अंदर केस निपटा कर १६वें दिन बलात्कारी को फांसी दे दी जाये.

Dry plums and Afghani sabziwala bhaiya.

It was a lovely evening and finally Kutkut cane out with me to buy groceries and vegetables.

Basically going with him is quite an easy task but by the half way he starts realizing that while coming back how much weight he is going to carry due to my hyper active nature of shopping.

So we were inside a small vegetables shop owned by an happy heart Afghani vendor. After buying vegetables and fruits, I was about to step out and here it is a small carton of super black plums over ripen. Due to my heavy interest n passion I knew they are something good. I picked up one and rubbed it on my Zara leather jacket arm lightly and chomped. Voila it was super sweet.

And the moment I looked at Kutkut with proud eyes that I found such great plums he gave me flying sign on my backside. Half plum in my mouth I reverted to see both heavy weight Afghanis on my head with rolled eyes.

“Vo purana ho gaya hai!” First one said. “Main fenkne ja raha tha”. Second one admitted. And I was shocked. Third brother yelled from cash counter “bada dil dukhta hai cheezain barbad dekhte huye”. (1st Brother told me those plums are old, second one echoed that he was about to throw them and third one admitted that it is painful to threw them).

So basically it was ultra sweet and ultra soft plums heavy bag which we carried back to home. Kutkut kept giving me all bad looks for buying two kgs of those plums.

Washed and dried, now in a big tray I put those in drying mode of my oven. After two three days when they were ready I gave a big packet to Afghani brothers too. And we had something great to snack upon as well.

Let us make Simit(Turkish bread).

We had been to Istanbul(Turkey) this July 2018. Still we are missing the high quality fruits and street food along-with super clean city.

Made this local popular bread in Turkey, Simit several times on kids demand. It is an eggless bread, quite easy to make and very fluffy. Ingredients are also easily available in our own Indian kitchens.

So here is the recipe with few tricks –

Ingredients (For making 8-9 medium small Simits)

1- 3 Cups of all purpose flour

2- 1/4 Cup of semolina

3- 1 Tbsp dry yeast

4- 1 Tsp salt

5- 1/4 Cup vegetable oil.

6- 1 Tbsp desi ghee or butter

7- 2-4 Tbsp grated gur/jaggery or brown sugar

8- 1 Cup water for kneading the dough

9- 1/2 cup water for garnishing

10- 1/4 Cup sesame seeds

Method –

1- Mix refined oil and 1 cup water very well.

2- In a big bowl mix 3 cups of maida(all purpose flour), dry yeast, salt. Whisk it.

3- Pour in water n oil mix. Knead the dough for 5-8 minutes.

4- Keep aside covered for 2-3 hours.

5- Uncover and sprinkle little all purpose flour to knead again for a while.

6- Now divide the dough in 8 equal parts.

7- Make a long strong of dough ball. Double it, make a circle of it and close both ends to make a perfect circle. Make all and keep in a baking tray layered with wax paper.

8- Now boil 1/2 cup water and mix in jaggery. Take the sesame seeds in a plate too.

9- Start dipping each dough circle in the water from both sides and dab on the sesame seeds. Keep back in the baking tray. Make sure to keep all the simits little far away from each other.

10- Do not cover and let them be like that for 40-50 minutes to get proofed again.

11- Bake on middle tray for 25-35 minutes.

12- If they are golden brown. Take them out.

13- Tastes great with unsalted butter.

**The original recipe calls for molasses but I used gur/jaggery. It turned out great.

11 Tips to enjoy MIA Park bazar(every Friday & Saturday).

1- MIA park Bazar is upto April end each Friday & Saturday.Timings are around 12 pm to 8-9 pm. They are specific about opening and closing timings so please keep that in mind before stepping out. They rarely allow visitors in the cars as that time vendors downloading n uploading times are pre fixed. But you can park outside somewhere and walk in, maximum vendors setup their tables in before 12 Pm noon.So that way you might face bit of parking chaos there.

2- Wear flat shoes/sandals. Flipflops or sport shoes are best. It is a huge park with amazingly big parks and amazing scened ocean front.

3- Car parking issues make people to avoid this place so try to be early bird or relax yourself for a while. Try Karwa taxis or pool the cars with known ones. Just get down from taxi, enjoy the bazar and ride back in taxi. You are going to save lots of hassles of driving n parking by doing this. Best thing is to get down by the own car, start walking in and meanwhile the driving person can park somewhere and join the family in a while.

4- Take a mat, eatables and drinks with you. Plan a whole day outing as Museum of Islamic Arts is surrounded by sprawling green lawns, water bodies, ocean sides and considered one of the best n most beautiful place (museum) in the world maps. It is serene and magnificent. Kudos to the designers and implementors. It is like a true group meditation for a family. If you live in Qatar, this should be your weekend get away.

5- Keep a close eye on your kids while they go for playing around or to use the washrooms. MIA park got one washroom in the little forest side(interiors of the park) it remains open and another one in the museum itself which closes at 6.30 pm.

6- Keep few bucks extra in your pocket. Museum got only one ATM inside, near the restaurant. It closes at 6.30 pm. So better keep extra cash in wallet. All vendors sell at cash only. Prices are very lucrative and you will find lot many fashion accessories out of this world(trust me). If you are short of cash and really liked something, take the no. of vendor, pay them little advance and ask for home delivery or pick it up later from them or in the next bazar.

7- Suggest your kids to not to touch the tables displaying the stuff. They might cause damages to the small vendors unknowingly. Be particular about this. Lot many times kids keep sticky fingers on clothes etc which cause heavy damages to the vendors.

8- If you are a bachelors, avoid staring at female vendors or standing uselessly near the female buyers as well. If you have no intentions of buying keep walking and avoid clicking pictures or selfies near the females.It might land you in troubles as security people keep a very close eye on such things. If you are female visiting Qatar first time or MIA bazar first time, please respect the local culture and dress modestly.

9- Do not ask vendors to open multiple clothes or things from the wrappers if you have no intentions to buy. And please avoid giving false promises like keep it and I will come back to never return back. If you are honest with your buying, pay them little advance as well. It matters.

10- Take lot of water with you if you have longer stay in the MIA intended. Parks are huge and kids play a lot. They get thirsty as well. Little water bottles means you might end up buying water again n again.

11- Encourage grown up kids to accompany you. Visit the museum as well. Let them relax from the senior studies and get some fresh air. It will help them from reducing the stress too.

12- Any issues, you can reach the security guards for help. They are lot many and very helpful, active and sober. They all are well connected with each other via walkie talkies n mobiles. Always eager to listen and help out all. This makes bazar very safe and happy place for family outings.

Looking forward to welcome you all each weekend at MIA Park bazar at the beautiful n sprawling lush green lawns of Museum of Islamic Arts!

This amazing park bazar is free space for small home based vendors with free table, free two chairs and free electric sockets for lighting etc..

God bless our patrons with immense success and happiness in the life. Our heartiest gratitude to the Royals for being such a big heart and generous. God bless them. Hope they all know that how happy is their public and expats community.

Author sells beautifully handcrafted antique, metal, raisin and wooden handbags (clutches) at the park.

Late evening snacking for kids.

I take home tuitions for kids. Some kids are growing up fast being teenagers and some are on the way to become preteens.

Because I take two subjects in one go so after completing one subject, I give them snack break. Lot many times I serve cold coffee, cold drinks, squashes and mix ins. Same with snacks like biscuits or salties.

But I realized that kids actually want something filling and satisfying all the time. They want big portions and great taste. Which readymade biscuits or cold drinks never able to do.

When I started serving home made snacks, sweets and salties they all became very appreciative as well.

It was a high time for me to return to kitchen more seriously with several thoughts in mind to think about “what all can I make for them?”.

And winners was mathri, laddus and barfis. I agree little hard work but the results are immensely satisfying with jars full of snacks for few days.Kids are also happy.

Having few home made goodies in jars means you can be free from making rounds to the market too. Try it!

 

My favorite snacking list is –

1- Methi mathri

2- Suji laddus

3- Besan ki barfi

4- Kaju barfi

5- Almonds barfi

6- Til laddus

7- Besan ke sev

8- Chivda
