Clam /Tisre Biryani - Karwar Special

Clams are the fresh water seashells which are very popular in Karwar city, South Karnataka. Clams are known as tisre in Karwari language. People over there  make variety of dishes of clams like tisre sukka,  tisre ambta, tisre biryani, tisre fry etc. Today I will be posting the recipe for tisre biryani.
There are two types of clams available. White clams are called as tisre (in Karwari language) and black ones are called as kondi (in Karwari language).  White clams are more tastier than black clams . So the biryani are usually prepared using white clams. 
This biryani is very simple to prepare unlike the other biryanis. Some people make the clam biryani using half shelled clams and some people opt to use only meat from the shells to make the biryani.
This step is left to you, how you want to keep the meat in the biryani. Both will have the same taste, there will be no issue with the taste of the biryani. So lets start the recipe.

The Most Powerful Battle- Capture and Defeat Fear

Did you know? Fear is obnoxious sensation caused by threats of risk. The fear is caused since we live with our life that is controlled by our mind. The mind gets influenced by what it sees and what others say (be it positive or negative). Some years back, I too had a fear of heights. It was to such a extent that I was not able to stand on the chair and clean the fan. I always had to find an excuse from my parents.

Safety must be our priority in our life. When we leave our home in early morning for an office, we never know that we will return back home safely because of unusual road accidents that are happening in day today life. In the everyday news we hear so many accidents that took the life of the people and some accidents will be due to the minor faults but still people have to pay for it by dying or by getting severely injured.

Bombay Malai

Today I would like to share one of my favorite sweet and it is called Bombay Malai. 
This sweet has soft milky texture and very strong flavor of rose essence. I remember in Mumbai these sweet were sold by street hawker and they used to serve this sweet on some kind of edible leaf.
In my summer holidays, I would always like to spend half of my holidays in Mumbai with my cousins and half in my native. So my parents used to plan the trip to Mumbai so that they can meet our cousins and also we can plan to go to Shirdi to take the blessing of Shirdi Sai Baba. 
In this way my love towards this sweet started increasing and still whenever I visit, I crave for this sweet. But unfortunately after long 7 years when I returned back to Mumbai, I did not  find this sweet anymore. I missed it so much and then  thought to have my own recipe . I could experiment with the recipe but did not get that actual taste but was satisfied with the experimented recipe. One thing I found was the texture of the sweet was same as that of actual Malai. My hope are not over, my senses still says that they are available and I will definitely get one day to taste it. This sweet I prepared on Raksha Bandhan for my brother but the post was unnoticed and was left in the draft. So thought to post it today instead of posting it next year he he he he he!!!!
