Hey, guys how are you all? Hope you all had a lovely Christmas with your loved ones and started the new year with a bang! We had a fantastic time together over the Christmas period. We indulged and enjoyed so much yummy and tasty food, movies, games and shopping, and in the beginning, of a new year, did get away for a 5 day trip to Austria and Hungary. A great way to start a new year, right!? :)

I just mentioned above that over the Christmas we had rich, tasty and calorie loaded food, especially we went crazy on potatoes and gobbled so many Roasted Potatoes, Aloo and Onion Paratha, Aloo Tikki, Aloo Matar, and Dry Aloo Bhaji with Methi Thepla just because our local supermarket was selling 2.5kg Potato bag for only for 29p! Crazy right? Not only potatoes but carrots, parsnips, Brussels sprouts and so fresh cauliflower too.

I got so greedy and bought almost a half a trolly full all these veggies. Whatever we could use for the recipes I used and all the leftover vegetables I used in making soups and froze them as I knew after coming back from the holiday we will need some food where I don't have to cook much ( oh yes, I do not easily switch off from the holiday mood) also we wanted to start a new year with the healthy note and of course wanted to beat cold and gloomy winter days with these type of piping hot soups.
