An Easy and Quick Recipe | Madras Fish Curry

I happened to attend a cooking session at Doha Gymkhana where the Executive Chef, Aditya Raj gave us a demo of a very quick, and delicious dish. The recipe was passed out to the attendees in hand outs, and in this day and age, handouts are quick to be lost. I thought to myself maybe I should have this up on the digital world, and what better place than my blog to save it on. Not only myself, but any of you could use it too whenever you'd like.A photo posted by Qatar Blog by Khansa &

One of the most scenic spots we went to in Macedonia and one I would love to go back again to.
The water was so chilly, the colors around so beautiful. What I love about nature is that it does not judge. It shows the same beauty to everyone around. Everyone gets the same service regardless of who they are.
Come rain or wind, it passes through everywhere with no exception. Isn't nature such a wonderful teacher?
Only if we took lessons from it! Whats the favorite lesson you have learnt from nature?

No matter how narrow minded we think a person can be, they can still see beauty if they really want to look for it. Beauty and Goodness is there in everyone just like faults. Why is it so easy to point out faults and not the good?
Can you go to sleep with a clean conscience having pointed out someone's fault? Or is the happiness through saying the right words that makes your day happy?
If so, before you write from behind the screen, before anger, jealousy or negative feelings take over your words, try and pause and choose the good words 💟 .

I sat down with the ENT specialist Dr. Agish Mathew at Aster Hospital and one of the things I learnt was more on the problem of snoring in sleep. More than 75% of people who snore have obstructive sleep apnea (when breathing is disrupted during sleep for short periods), which increases the risk of developing heart disease.😲😲
At Aster Hospital they can provide the service of observing you and analysing your sleep patterns . More often than not a person who snores struggles to get enough oxygen into the brain while asleep and the person wakes up tired because the body works so hard while asleep😌 to get enough oxygen into the brain.
For this reason, if anyone around you has a snoring problem, dont take it lightly.
The Aster Hospital in Qatar offers the service of studying sleeping disorders overnight and making sure to diagnose the cause of it and how to rectify it.
Did you know about this before?
Share it with everyone you know!

Life is not meant to be a race. Time flies by so fast. And, then you realize you have passed over your prime years not having done anything.
A reminder to myself in this race against time chasing I do not know what 😭
Do you think about these things?

On a side note, clicked that in the middle of grocery shopping at Spinneys because instagrammable tiles & shoes just coincided in the moment. 😂

Growing up in the desert, I underestimated what could grow in a desert until I visited @edenfarmqatar
I also learnt much more on how research and hardwork goes a long way.
It's always about making the best of what you have that leaves you with a sense of accomplishment.
