Life is hard


For the past 3 years everything is going wrong in my life. But I’m still optimistic that something amazing is gonna happen soon. I owe a lot to my F.R.I.E.N.D.S. for cheering me up all those times life hasn’t been very kind to me.. Thank you guys, you know who you are!

It’s a Wonderful Life


Hello People!

How are you?!

I’ve been so addicted to Dexter these days.. I watch 3-4 episodes on a good day. There’s something about Dexter that keeps you in the edge of your seats. I seriously wonder if there’s something wrong with me for loving it. I’m a girl, and girls usually don’t like these kind of a show. I’m rooting for a serial killer! For those of you, who don’t know about Dexter, He’s a Psychopath with professional ethics!! A serial killer who kills the bad guys! That’s all you have to know. 😉

Anyways, I’m grateful that I got a new hobby.

IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE!

You must be wondering why I’m just so in love with ‘life’ all of a sudden!
Well, you’ll be too if you watch ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ . Its a 1946 film , Black and White Of Course. (You can get the color version now too, I think.) I usually don’t go for Black and White films. But I’ve been hearing a lot of good reviews lately, and thought I should give it a try. And It was AMAZING!!

When a man named George Bailey is frustrated and decides to end his life, when an Angel shows him how other’s life would have become if he never existed.  Its tells us how our life touches so many other lives. It sure got me thinking, and I feel Great today! 🙂 😀

I leave you with my Favorite Quote of the film. Have a great day.

First day of 2012


At the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve…

In the movies close friends will always be in the middle of a huge party, counting down to welcome the new year. Perfect! But all I was doing was sitting in my room, watching a new years party on TV where they do the countdown. Pathetic?? Well it would’ve been pathetic if I didn’t have any F.R.I.E.N.D.S to call. I did, and I loved every single one of those short and sweet conversations. At around 1am, I should say I slept with a huge grin on my face! 😀

New years is on Sunday this year, so I get to be extra lazy. Facebook +Food +Sleep is the usual equation for a holiday. But it was different this year. I started watching Dexter, it was so bloody brilliant that I couldn’t stop watching! Crime Thriller is not the genre I go for, but after reading a lot about how great this series is, I thought I should give it a try. Finished Season 1 today.

I was a Rom-Com Fanatic last year. Wonder whats happening to me now!

Wishing you a very Happy New Year,

Indu Prakash.

Happy New Year!


“Happy new year, everybody. Congratulations to the human race for surviving another trip around the sun. Way to go everyone. Big round of applause!”

My new year resolution is to write more, and to play less Sims Social. Lets see how that goes!

Once again, Happy New Year !  Let this year bring you all the happiness in the world. 🙂 Enjoy!!

About Making Unnakai, And My New Hobbies


Hi guys.
I wanna apologize to my blog for abandoning it like that. Sorry!! But I’m back.
I’m proud to say that I found LOTS of new hobbies! Yup and I mean LOTS!!

Anyone can and will have countless number of hobbies if you are introduced to Fevicryl Hobby ideas! My love for this product started when I walked into a famoust craft store in town called PKG. I went with my friend because she heard about this stuff from her friend. We were like kids at a toy store. I WANT THAT!

I bought all the stuff needed for Glass Painting(which is VERY easy to do), shilpkar, fabric paint, play dough, and many other stuff.
Shipkar has two dough inside. Mix it in equal quantities and mould it into different shapes, stick it to flower pots, photo frames, literally anywhere. When it dries, paint it using fabric colors. I made flowers and sticked it on the most boring looking pot I saw lying around. Painted the flowers pink and the pot, black. Now it ooks Bold And Beautiful! 😀
Play dough is just for fun 😛
Glass painting turns out good even if you are the messy person with shaky hands!

My other new hobby is cooking. Started out as a hobby, but now its a passion. I make one dish a day, mostly tea-time snacks. 70% of the time, my dish comes out amazing. Lets not talk about the other 30% which turns out to be a complete disaster(even my dogs think twice before eating!)

Yesterday(sunday), I planned to watch three movies. Monte Carlo, Bad Teacher and Crimes of Fashion. I wanted to watch something other than the Guy-movies in the IMDb Top 250 list (which btw is going good.) Monte carlo was very boring. Fast forwarded through most of it. It was like a bad rip off of the Lizzie-Mcguire, the movie. Bad Teacher was hilarious (Jason Segal was super cute!). Crimes of fashion was also good.

The whole family was at home, infront of TV or computer. That’s when my dad asked if I was making any snack (My dad became a fan of my cooking after tasting the Gulab Jamun I made. And I DID NOT make it using Instant Gulab Jamun mix!) I wasn’t really planning too, but the fact that someone asked was more than enough reason for me to run to the kitchen and start scanning the kitchen for ingredients for an awesome snack.

There was everything to make Unnakai. My favorite tea-time (or any-time) snack. It does take a lot of work, but it is all worth it. For making unnakai, First step is to steam ripe banana. After it is cooked, allow it to completely cool down. Then mash it. I was mashing the bananas, and that’s when my mom starts suggesting ‘tips’.
“Don’t mash it. There will be lumps in it. Use the mixer. Then add rice powder to make it crisp”
I ignored. She repeats. I yell!
” I’LL DO IT MYSELF. ”
My mom always does this. She throws suggestions at me. I reject it completely, and then I’ll get second thoughts.
‘CRISP’-That’s the word that catched my attention. I use the mixer and the product turned out to be a sticky paste! So I had to add rice powder (and flour), if I still wanna make the unnakai. Then I made small balls with the dough and stuffed coconot and sugar mixture, and deep fried till it get golden brown color.
It was DELICIOUS( Everyone thought so 🙂 )

I’m posting the recipe here, just in case any of you want to try making it. 🙂

  1. Ripe banana – 2
  2. Grated coconut – 1 cup
  3. Sugar –  6 spoonful
  4. Cardamom – 2
  5. Ghee – 3 tablespoon
  6. Oil

Steam the bananas. Let it cool completely. Mash the bananas & keep it aside.

Heat ghee in a pan & add coconut, sugar & cardamom. Cook it for 4-5 minutes.  Apply a little oil in the hands & make small rolls with mashed bananas. Fill it with coconut mix & roll it  into an oval shape. Fry these rolls in heated oil until it becomes light golden brown.
