Deepavali Shubhakankshalu (Happy Diwali)

Here's wishing everyone a very happy and prosperous Deepavali!

With the experience of making Ganesha with clay under my belt, I decided to make diyas with clay too! Here are some pics!

Happy Deepavali to you!

I love reading your blog and I was wondering if you have a T&T recipe for Chicken Tikka Masala and Bryiani. We love Indian Food but there is not even one good place around here where we live!

Thank you so much!
