A successful remake and a MEME


Long long back I heard that Pulihora can be made out of a readymade mix in a jiffy....and recently I've come across the recipe for pulihora powder in Sirisha's blog (U need to scroll down till the end passing all the mouthwatering pictures to reach the pulihora recipe)...From that day I have been procastinating and finally tried it out on the day of Vijayadasami for Neivedyam and it was a huge success....it was almost like the Pulihora we get in temples as prasadam (in a very lil quantity)....There are some occassions during which I used to visit the temple only for the delicious prasadam..Now that I understood how to make it at home, I can now concentrate on my prayers to the God at the temples....Thanks for sharing this wonderful idea Sirisha....
And then the fantastic four MEME....I was tagged by this wonderful girl Sirisha, initially I knew that she was into scientific research in ISRO, lately realised that she is a fantastic kicthen scientist too through her blog "Ambrosia Flavours". I love this idea of tagging the co-bloggers to share their tidbits, I have no idea who has initiated this concept, but I appreciate them for coming up with such a nice concept..and here goes my MEME,


4 Places I have lived

1. Swansea (United Kingdom) - after marriage

2. Salt Lake City, Utah (USA) - During my Masters

3. Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh (India) - During my Engineering

4. Nellore, Andhra Pradesh (India) - I was brought up here.


4 Jobs I have had

1. Product Engineer - This's my present job...At our company, we design and make light engines for architectural lighting, medical equipment (UVA,NIR exposers to infants) using semiconductor based LEDs....it's all about electrons, diodes and light...:D

2. NPI (New Product Introduction) Engineer @ LG Electronics, UK - This was my first job in UK. It's a huge LCD monitor and TV manufacturing unit where my job was to deal with the introduction of a new model into the huge scale manufacturing...

3. Design Engineer - Moschip Semiconductors, India...Verification and validation of Digital and Analog VLSI circuit designs using Cadence...

4. Research Assistant - University of Utah, USA..This was my very first job....I worked with a Cosmic Ray detection group known as HiRes in the dept of Physics...The most interesting part of this job was our onsite visits in the Utah desert. We (our team) had to spend a whole night in the desert to detect the cosmic rays (they are most powerful only during nights) for ou data analysis...very much exciting experience....


4 Favorite places I have holidayed

1. Switzerland, Europe (2007) - A must see to everyone...Heaven on Earth

2. London, United Kingdom (2006) - loved the mixed culture here and the historic places all around.

3. Los Angeles and Las Vegas, USA (2003) - Out of all the places I visited in USA, I loved these most.

4. Karatampadu, Nellore Dt, India - Ammamma's place where I spent all my summer holidays during my childhood....No matter how many places I visited outside India, ammamma's place is the best.


4 Favorite foods

1. Omelet

2. Pineapple pastry

3. Mom's Chilli Chicken

4. Ammamma's gulab Jamoon

Can I add few(????) more :D


4 Favorite places I would rather be

1. Nellore - close to my parents.

2. Zurich - Switzerland, I fell in love head over heels with this City...Very advanced technically and beautiful too.

3. Dallas, TX, USA - loved the desi junta and India like weather here.

4. Swansea,UK - the place where we live now...can be called as UK's Goa....our house is by the sea-coast and I love the view of the waterfront from our living room, pleasure being here away from the busy busy cities...
