This one is about life lessons and Curried Ground Chicken

I guess everyday we learn something from life ,this is what i learnt since past three days
I learnt day before yesterday thats parents are always correct,after all they are parents,
I learnt yesterday that sometimes advice should be given a thought no matter from where its coming from
and specially when the same advice is given by three different people
and today i learnt how to brew cardamom and ginger flavour  tea with tea bag ,this came out of neccessity as i am out of tea powder  and have a box full of tea bags,plain tea is something which i can never have
so this is wht i did
How to brew cardamom and ginger flavour tea with Tea Bag
boil water in sauce pan
add sugar,crushed half tsp ginger,crushed cardamom pod
let it simmer for 5 mins
strain in a cup and add tea bag
followed by one fourth cup of warm milk
enjoy hot .
But this post is just not about brewing tea and life lessons ,,,its about something else,.
yesterday night prepared this simple chicken keema for dinner paired it with plain rice and fried egg.
