A few days back I received the opportunity to contribute a recipe for Nuts.com's virtual summer snack contest. I have no idea what kind of snack people normally eat at barbecues , we usually just have sausages and grilled fish and chicken on out barbecues and sides of roast potatoes and salads, but I decided to give it a try.

My mind has gone blank these days. And now with Ramadhan month over, its back to normal which means the school runs and swimming lessons for the boys. So by the end of the day I can hardly keep my eyes open ,let alone think on what to write. Anyways , I did a recipe of Curtis Stone recently, and since its Curtis Stone theme these days at the IHCC, I am posting it here.

This is a traditional drink. I love sago pearls and this sugary drink is not for the health freaks but hey its Ramadhan and it could be Eid tomorrow or Wednesday, you need a nice drink to finish off a meal or to give to a guest who visits your home.Some people even add condensed milk while finishing it but then it becomes more like sago bondibai to me .

No Eid lunch is complete without a chicken dish. This is a recipe I learnt from one of my paternal Aunts, who also taught me another delicious chicken curry. She is a great cook and one with a sweet motherly personalty. Its a pretty hot and spicy curry, I toned it down with a bit more tomato paste. How much you add the chilli paste is up to you. Here in Maldives most people use frozen chicken, something which I learnt tastes a lot different from the fresh one,
