Introverts have a lot of the chemical that makes them feel stimulated; extroverts don’t have so much. This is why introverts tend to avoid crowded places or deadlines — things that are likely to put extra pressure on them — because they already have pressure within themselves.

5. What’s special about the country you live in?

Punjab is a state in northwest region of India and is one of the most prosperous states.
The name Punjab is made of two words Punj (Five) + Aab (Water) i.e. land of five rivers. These five rivers of Punjab are Sutlej, Beas, Ravi, Chenab, and Jhelum. Only Sutlej, Ravi and Beas rivers flow in today’s Punjab. The other two rivers are now in the state of Punjab, situated in Pakistan. The Punjab State is divided into three regions: Majha, Doaba and Malwa.
Agriculture is the mainstay of Punjab’s economy. Other major industries include manufacturing of scientific instruments, electrical goods, financial services, machine tools, textiles, sewing machines etc..Punjab is considered to have the best infrastructure in India; this includes road, rail, air and river transport links that are extensive throughout the region. Punjab also has the lowest poverty rate in India and has won the best state performance award, based on statistical data compiled by the Indian Government.
According to 2011 Census of India, the total Population of Punjab is 2,77,43,338. The decadal change i.e. increase in population from 2001 to 2011 is 13.89%.Geographical area
The total area of the state is 50,362 square kilometers (19,445 square miles), with the cultivable area being under assured irrigation. Its average elevation is 300 meters (980 ft) above sea level, with a range from 180 meters (590 ft) in the southwest to more than 500 meters (1,600 ft) around the northeast border.
Location
Punjab extends from the latitudes 29.30° North to 32.32° North and longitudes 73.55° East to 76.50° East.
Punjab is bounded on the west by Pakistan, on the north by Jammu and Kashmir, on the northeast by Himachal Pradesh and on the south by Haryana and Rajasthan.

Climate:
The state has a balanced amalgamation of heat in summer, rain in monsoon and cold in winter. The three seasons are so distinctly distributed that you can enjoy each of them individually. Punjab experiences both summer and winter to its extreme. It even receives abundant rainfall, which makes the state a very fertile land. The region lying near the foot hills of Himalayas receive heavy rainfall whereas the region lying at a distant from the hills, the rainfall is scanty and the temperature is high.
The summer months span from mid April to the end of June. The rainy season in Punjab is from early July to end of September. October marks the beginning of the winter season. From December onwards, the winter becomes chilly. Most of the major festivals of Punjab, like Lohri, Holla Mohalla, Diwali, and Dussehra, fall during this period. The best time to visit Punjab is from October to the end of March.
Language:
Punjabi, the official language of the state, is the tenth most widely spoken language in the world. It is also the fourth most spoken language in Asia. It is the only living language among the Indo-European languages which is a fully tonal language. Punjabi is written in the Gurmukhi Script. Besides Punjabi, Hindi, Urdu and the universally acclaimed English are the languages that are spoken in Punjab.
State Capital
Chandigarh is a union territory and serves as the capital of the states of Punjab and Haryana. It is one of the early planned cities in the post-independence India. Picturesquely located at the foothills of Shivaliks, it is known as one of the best experiments in urban planning and modern architecture in the twentieth century in India. The dream city of India’s first Prime Minister, Sh. Jawahar Lal Nehru, Chandigarh was planned by the famous French architect Le Corbusier.
The foundation stone of the city was laid in 1952. In March, 1948, the Government of Punjab, in consultation with the Government of India, approved the area of the foothills of the Shivaliks as the site for the new capital. The location of the city site was a part of the erstwhile Ambala district as per the 1892-93 gazetteer of District Ambala. Subsequently, at the time of reorganization of the state on 01.11.1966 into Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pardesh, the city assumed the unique distinction of being the capital city of both, Punjab and Haryana while it itself was declared as a Union Territory and under the direct control of the Central Government.
City / state
There are 22 Districts and total of 168 statutary towns and 69 census towns in Punjab. Thus there are total 237 towns (or say cities) in Punjab. Major cities of Punjab include Mohali, Ludhiana, Amritsar, Patiala and Jalandhar.
One of the world’s first and oldest civilizations, the Indus Valley Civilization spanned much of the Punjab region, with cities such as Harappa and Mohenjodaro now located in the modern-day Pakistani province of Punjab.

6. Favorite destination outside your country?

My favourite destination outside e Golden Temple, also known as Harmandir Sahib, meaning “abode of God” or Darbār Sahib, meaning “exalted court”, is a Gurdwara located in the city of Amritsar, Punjab, India. It is the preeminent spiritual site of Sikhism

Groundbreaking: December 1581
Completed: 1589 (Temple), 1604 (with Adi Granth)
Founders: Guru Ram Das, Guru Arjan

The Gurdwara is built around a man-made pool (sarovar) that was completed by the fourth Sikh Guru, Guru Ram Das in 1577.[5][6] Guru Arjan, the fifth Guru of Sikhism, requested Sai Mir Mian Mohammed, a Muslim Pir of Lahore, to lay its foundation stone in 1589.[7] In 1604, Guru Arjan placed a copy of the Adi Granth in Harmandir Sahib, calling the site Ath Sath Tirath (lit. “shrine of 68 pilgrimages”).[2][8] The Gurdwara was repeatedly rebuilt by the Sikhs after it became a target of persecution and was destroyed several times by the Mughal and invading Afghan armies. [2][4][9] Maharaja Ranjit Singh after founding the Sikh Empire, rebuilt it in marble and copper in 1809, overlaid the sanctum with gold foil in 1830. This has led to the name the Golden Temple.[10][11][12]

The Harmandir Sahib is an open house of worship for all men and women, from all walks of life and faith.[2] It has a square plan with four entrances, has a circumambulation path around the pool. The complex is a collection of buildings around the sanctum and the pool.[2] One of these is Akal Takht, the chief center of religious authority of Sikhism.[4] Additional buildings include a clock tower, the offices of Gurdwara Committee, a Museum and a langar – a free Sikh community run kitchen that serves a simple vegetarian meal to all visitors without discrimination.[4] Over 100,000 people visit the holy shrine daily for worship.[14] The Gurdwara complex has been nominated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and its application is pending on the tentative list of UNESCO.[5]

Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the vanilla extract and lemon zest and beat until combined. With the mixer on low speed, alternately add the flour mixture and milk, in three additions, beginning and ending with flour.
Spread the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top with an offset spatula. Bake in preheated oven for about 15 – 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.

Alternatively, you can bake it in a square or spring pan…. For the cake base you are free to use store bought sponge cake, eggless cake or ready to make cake mix…. For cream cheese I used Kiri cream cheese but you can use any brand you prefer…. Substitute mango with fresh strawberry jelly and pulp and you will get a beautiful pink cheese cake…. Do try this easy Mango Cheese Cake .

How to completely Blend the cream cheese !


For best results, make sure the cream cheese and sugar are completely blended, free of lumps and smooth, before adding any other ingredients. If the cream cheese is too cold, it will not blend easily. To easily soften the cream cheese, place completely unwrapped packages of cream cheese in a microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 30 sec. or just until softened.

😛(Recipes)💎Indian Tradition Madras chicken curry Recipes .🍗😊😊

🤗Welcome back in my recipe Madras chicken curry.😛😋

It’s an extraordinary combination of flavors with a subtle kick from peppercorns & chilies.

This curry can be made as hot as you like. We’re using madras hot curry powder for the heat, but you can add in more heat with fresh chillies, or less heat by swapping out the madras powder for regular medium or mild curry powder.

Spicy hot madras chicken curry 🍗😊😊

What is a Madras chicken curry ?🍗🍗😝

Madras sauce or Madras curry originates from the south of India, named after the city of Madras (now Chennai)Madras (now Chennai). Always red in color, Madras is typically a hot curryThis is a fairly spicy madras curry. If you like it spicer, add an extra hot red chili powder to taste.

What I love about this Quick and Easy Chicken Madras is that it has a rich, depth of flavor that tastes like it cooked for hours. The garam masala that is the spice base and main flavor for the dish is mild and slightly sweet.

usually make this chicken madras curry in my instant pot (mainly for the convenience of pressure cooking), but if the pot is otherwise engaged, I use a deep, heavy-bottomed pan on the stovetop. Both methods are discussed below.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup ghee or oil
1 cup chopped red onion about half a large onion
½ cup chopped cilantro
5-6 cloves garlic minced
3 tablespoons fresh grated ginger
30 ounces diced tomatoes 2 – 15 ounce cans
15 ounces unsweetened coconut milk
2 tablespoons Madras curry powder
1 tablespoon garam masala .


1 teaspoon salt.
¼ – ½ teaspoon Kashmiri chili powder or cayenne .
1 ½ – 2 pounds boneless chicken thighs .
1 tablespoon lemon juice.

Spicy &hot madras chicken curry 🍗🍗😛

How to make:

Step 1 – Turn on the instant pot to sauté (normal) and add the oil to the steel insert. Wait for the display to show HOT, then add the dry red chillies, cardamom pods and cloves.

Step 2 – When the spices start sizzling (a few seconds), add the onions and fry until they the just begin to brown. There is no need to caramelize them completely. Do stir them now and then to prevent uneven browning. This should take about 5 minutes.

Step 3 – Add the powdered spices and salt and stir rapidly for a few seconds. Add a couple tablespoons water immediately if you find the spices sticking to the bottom. You can even turn off the pot for a few seconds at this point and turn it on again when you are adding the rest of the ingredients. The heat that is built up already is enough to roast the spices.

Step 4 – Stir in the minced ginger and garlic and sauté for 2 minutes. As before, if the masala is sticking to the pan, loosen it with a few splashes of water.

Step 5 – Add the tomato puree, lemon juice and sugar. Mix everything well.

Step 6 – Slide in the chicken pieces and 1.5 to 2 cups water. Deglaze the pot and close the lid. Pressure cook for 7 minutes on high. Once the timer beeps, do a pressure release after 10 minutes.

Step 7 – Open the pot and sprinkle the kasuri methi (fenugreek leaves). Serve hot with naan or rice.

Served with rice and salads 😋

SPICES
Spices are the life and soul of any self-respecting curry and are responsible for the deep flavor profile of most Indian food. The right spices added in the right proportions (less is more) can really elevate a dish beyond ‘good’ to ‘freaking awesome’! Here’s what goes into this chicken madras recipe:

How is Madras curry powder different from another curry powder ?🤔

Some say that this, along with regular curry powder is a British invention and has nothing to do with authentic Indian food. This is not completely true as the whole spices used to make curry powder are distinctly Indian. So, how is Madras curry powder different from curry powder? Both have the same ingredients except that Madras curry powder is hotter with the addition of chilli peppers. Madras curry powder is a star spice in this recipe, so don’tthat this, along with regular curry powder is a British invention and has nothing to do with authentic Indian food. This is not completely true as the whole spices used to make curry powder are distinctly Indian. So, how is Madras curry powder different from curry powder? Both have the same ingredients except that Madras curry powder is hotter with the addition of chilli peppers. Madras curry powder is a star spice in this recipe, so don’t skip it.
1) Coriander powder – store-bought works fine, but if you really want your curry to vibrate with fresh flavors, use fresh coriander powder. How to make fresh coriander powder? Toast a tablespoon of coriander seeds in a small frypan over medium heat until the seeds start changing color and you can actually smell them. Turn off the heat, cool for a bit, then grind them in a dry spice grinder to a semi-fine powder. Of course, it all depends on the time you have. If you don’t have a lot, use pre-packaged coriander powder.
2) Cumin powder– just a little bit of cumin works wonders. Don’t go overboard with it as it can make the curry dark and taste overwhelming. Again, fresh is best (same method as the coriander above) but store-bought cumin powder works well too.
3) Chilli powder– if you don’t mind the heat, use cayenne but if too much spice is not your thing, use Kashmiri chilli powder. It adds a mild heat but lots of natural red color.
4) Turmeric powder – Indian food can’t really do without turmeric! Again, add a little bit only for warmth and color since there is some in the curry powder too.

Dried Fenugreek leaves( kasuri methi) – I can’t tell you how much depth a pinch or two of this herb adds to Indian curries. Restaurants use this in almost all their dishes and it adds a wonderful kick to gravy-based dishes. The trick is to add a little only as too much kasuri methi can ruin a perfectly good curry and make it bitter. Another thing to remember is to add it towards the end of the cooking cycle. This again prevents the food from turning bitter.

A hot & vibrant spicy Madras chicken curry 🍗😝

Chicken Madras is a hot and vibrant chicken curry that tastes so good with either naan or rice. Deeply flavoured with spices, this is one Indian curry you can’t miss!😊😊😄

Note
1) You can make madras chicken with boneless breast or thigh as well. Reduce the cooking time to 5 minutes for boneless chicken.
2) Don’t put more than 1/2 tsp kasuri methi and make sure to add it at the end, or the curry will turn bitter.

✨Onion Pakora (Spicy onion fritters)😋😋 Tea time snack.

When it’s rainy & cold, best thing to do 🤗☺☺

Onion pakora is a popular tea time snack made by deep-frying onion slices in a gluten-free and vegan chickpea flour batter.

Onion pakora 😋😋

When it is rainy or cold, the best thing to do is to warm up with a cup of chai and a plate of piping hot pakora. Pakora (also called pakoda, pakodi or bhajji) can be made with almost anything. Potatoes, onions, most vegetables, paneer, chicken and even bread pakoras are very popular. The binding agent is chickpea flour or besan which makes these onion pakora naturally gluten-free and vegan.



There are a couple of ways to make pakora.There is no dearth of tea time snacks in Indian cuisine. These snacks can be an entire cuisine category on their own. From the bhajjis and vadas of South India to pakore and chaat from North India, the sheer variety of Indian tea time snacks will astound you. Most of these snacks are easy to make with just a few pantry staples.

ONION PAKORA {SPICED ONION FRITTERS – VEGAN, GF} – HAPPY&HARRIEDThe process of making onion pakora starts by slicing and salting the onions and letting them sit for a while. This makes the onions let out water and makes it softer and more pliable. Then when you add the flour, you will need very little water and the pakora turns out super crunchy on the outside and perfectly cooked inside.

Sliced onions 😁

I have been experimenting with cooking pakoras in an air fryer too and it works. It tastes slightly different from the deep-fried version of course, but if you are watching your calories, it is a good option. Just remember to spread out the onion fritters thinly when placing the batter in the air fryer bowl.

Ingredients :

Red onions – 2, medium-large
Salt – ½ tsp
Turmeric powder – ¼ tsp
Red chili powder – ½ – 1 tsp (as per taste)
Garam masala powder – ½ tsp
Green chilies – 2, finely chopped
Cilantro leaves – 1 tbsp, finely chopped
Chickpea flour – 1 cup, sifted
Rice flour – 2 tbsp, sifted
Water – as needed
Oil – for deep-frying

How to make :

Using your hands, mix them together, separating the onion slices with your fingers. Rest for at least 15 minutes to let the onions soften.
Add chickpea flour and rice flour to the onions and mix well. Add water, a little at a time, to make a thick batter. Taste and adjust seasoning.
Heat oil in a large, deep pan. Drop spoonfuls of batter into the hot oil. Fry pakora in medium heat, flipping them over to cook on all sides. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on paper towels to absorb excess oil.

Onion pakora (spicy onion fritter) served with hot chutney 😋😘

A good pakora needs a good condiment to go with it. Ketchup is always a crowd favorite, but I also like to make a tangy green chutney to go with it.

Onion pakora are also great as a side for a traditional Indian meal, I especially love pakora with rice and dal curry. If you have never tried it, you definitely should.
