Tell me what can one do in USA without electricity. But thank God one of my hubby's classmate living in Dallas-Weatherford gave us a helping hand. His wife Sharmila was really very kind and helpful and gave a some space in their home for a week desipte being pregnant. She welcomed us with this wonderful spicy cauliflower rice f with Shallot Sambar( will share the recipe soon) when we reach there and it was really very good. It tasted heavenly and really felt being at my home with our loved ones:) After a very long time I have prepare the recipe of hers and wanted to share them with you guys...I have understood the value of good friendship from their hospitality :)
