 Hello...Today my blog turned 1 . I am totally surprise , I remember writing my first post and how fast days passed without notice and now here I am a year later. My blog is very special to me.Foody Delight is the catalogue for my simple and exotic pleasure in food. The recipe may come from any part of the world, but the basic principle of the cooking remains the same. As you all know I am beyond joyful to have you all on this journey with me and supported me.And I also want to thank you so very much for encouraging me last 1 year by your precious comments. Thank you so much again..

Today recipe is sheer korma… Sheer korma is know to everyone. It is prepared with fried vermicelli, milk and loads of dryfruits. It is loved by everyone ad also easy to cook. To make it flavour the sheer korma, you can  also add rose syrup.
