I have been planning to make a draw string purse from quite some time. After trying out twice with different fabrics and patterns, I finally came up with this simple and easy draw string purse. I have used a stiffener to make it stiff and hence this is ideal for keeping mobiles, i pods or mp3 players. You can make this large or small, with or without a stiffener, using any material of your choice, and use it for keeping anything that you wish - make-up products, accessories, or coins… This needs only basic single stitch hence even beginners can give it a try…

Since we like our burjis to be more flavourful and spicy, mom suggested reducing the quantity of paneer by half. The burji came out wonderful and tasted delicious with rotis.
Layered samosa is a different type of samosa in which layers of dough are rolled separately and arranged on top of each other. As a result the samosa cover is crunchy and crisp with clearly visible layers. This is well complimented with a spicy chicken stuffing inside. If the stuffing is prepared well in advance, then making this samosa becomes all the more easier.
