Quilled family frame :)

Hi friends, sharing a quilled project after a long time. This one is quiet close to me. Loved these pictures of ours from malaysia tour (actually sydney-singapore-malaysia-thailand tour ). So decided to make a proper display for them. I started with altering an old quilled frame.But ultimately landed up making something entirely new :)

Btw did you notice the little birdie perched on the photo?  Actually I was planning to make only one bird at the top left corner. But that bird became too big , so I made another smaller bird. Then thought the same bird will look good in the middle too..hence the second bird. No points in guessing on who suggestion I made the third one :) yes kiddo wanted a company for herself. .she is deeply in love with birds currently. .hence the little birdie. 

This was suppose to be hubby's birthday gift which was in aug start. I did show him the preview that time, but the completed one only a little quilling does take a bit of time. My little one was super excited for this gift for her dad and used to be behind me for completing it as soon as I come from office !

Framed up!

Close up

Do let me know how you iked it, thanks for stopping by!

Healthy masala oats |Kids Breakfast recipe| Weight loss and Diabetic friendly recipe

Are you on a perpetual  weight loss mission like me? Do you wanna feed healthy breakfast to kids (and everyone)? Having high Cholesterol and Diabetes running in the family?

If you said yes to any of the above, then Masala oats is your go to recipe . Oats is low in GI (Glycemic Index) which means it is great for those who have diabetes. A great filling breakfast/ dinner with oats is said to reduce bad cholesterol  improve digestion and control blood pressure. It keeps you feeling fuller for long and reduces craving to eat more, helping in the weight loss plan.

We are not a big fan of sweet and hence the sweet oats porridge does not score well in our family. But I love preparing this masala oats which satisfies the spice parameter, healthy parameter and taste too J

I am hosting a event at my blog for sharing the healthy breakfast recipes that you would be making for kids. This is one my contribution for the event.

Here we go to the recipe without much ado..



Oats (quick oats, I used quaker oats) - 4 tbsp
Water - 1 cup
Vegetables - 1/2 cup (carrots, beans, peas)
Curd - 1 tbsp (Optional)
Onion - 1 medium, chopped
Sambar powder/garam masala - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Salt - to taste
oil - 2 tsp


In a non stick pan dry roast oats for a minute until you get a fragrant smell. Remove the oats. In the same pan heat oil add onions and sauté until transparent  Add the chopped vegetables and salt sauté until it gets half cooked in medium to low flame.

you can also add other veggies like chopped beetroot, potatoes, peas or cabbage. You can also add few mint leaves to add some extra punch.

Add turmeric powder, sambar powder and curd, mix well. Now add boiling water let it simmer for a minute. Add the oats and mix well. Garnish with chopped cilantro and Serve hot.
