When wrapping the things at my Ammi’s place in January , I came across  pages and notes along with real old urdu recipe book. With torn pages & ink marks were the reminders of the time it had been written.  Ammi had a habit of writing different recipes. It may be her own or  from Radio, TV and also from  friends with little notes of her additions. I don’t know what is the source of her recipes but now it has become a precious thing for me to keep in my diary. These are the memoirs for me to keep. I have her old letters written to me when I came to Dubai. They are simply papers and things written for anyone, but for me these are my valued possessions.
