Merey Ghar Aayee Ek Nanhee Pari

We are writing this to share
A moment so unique, a feeling so rare
A little cute angle has flown down to earth
From our prayers womb she has taken birth
Who would of thought, to our surprise?
The day we looked in our daughter's eyes,
That we would find our sunshine, our star, our pearl,
All the thoughts in our head, of this little girl.
You came to us early on the twenty eighth of February,
She was supposed to come later, but she was in a little hurry .
We did not realize the moment, 'till the moment she was placed inside of our hands.
And it was at that split moment,
When she opened her eyes,
her true identity was no longer disguised.
As the lights glistened, in her beautiful eyes,
Inside we slowly started to cry.
We were given an angel, from heavens' above, the final test as a man and wife,
A little girl to love and cherish for life.

This is the first time am thinking of taking part in any blogsphere event. It's not that I never got to know any but am so lazy to take part but this time I found rules were easy and I have almost half of the things in draft mode so thought of putting in for the Game Night Party Recipes on Manasi Desai's blog.So here I go with Dabeli a snack which is tummy full and nutritious too. So guys make a note of it how to prepare .... not so difficult, infact too easy

Boiled and mashed potatoes 3-4
Fresh Pomegranates(anaar) seeds - 1 small bowl
Onion chopped - 1 small bowl
Fresh corriander leaves - 1 bunch
Chick peas (soaked overnight and boiled in salted water) - 1/2 bowl(optional)
Green chillies finely chopped as per your taste
Chopped tomatoes - 1 small bowl
paneer/cottage cheese cubes - 1 small bowl(optional)
Salt to taste
Red chilly powder - 1 tsp
Amchoor powder/dry mango powder - 1 tsp
Chat masala - 1 tsp
Pita bread or Pav or Bun - 5-6
Butter to roast
Pre- prepration:
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl except pita bread and butter.

Add little butter to this and Micro the contents of bowl for one minute on high. Although this is totally optional but it gives good taste.
Now take a pita bread/pav/bun and slit it open from middle. Make a pocket out of it as shown

Pocket should be large enough to stuff the bowl contents. Stuff each Pita Bread with 2 - 3 spoon full of stuffing and keep aside.
This can be prepared in advance, say 2-3 hours before the games and as soon as the serving time is near all you have to do is roast with butter on both sides on griddle/tawa for 5 mins or till the time upper crust of bread becomes crispy.
This is quite handy to make as most of it can be prepared in advance and rest roasting can be done before serving time and this is quite filling too.
Serve Dabeli with green coriander chuttney or with tomato ketchup.
