A Soccer Mom Gets Clicked with the U-17 FIFA Cup Trophy

There a few things I do every morning, right after I drop the kids for school and before my husband gets up. It’s a narrow window so I only concentrate on the very important. I make a cup of green tea, skim through the headlines and find out what’s happening on GurgaonMoms. Yes, it is that important and you’ll soon understand why. As I go through all the posts on my favorite Mommy group, I notice a post specifically for soccer moms mentioning a contest- Participate in the Coca-Cola & FIFA quiz and “A chance to click with FIFA...

We were introduced to the owner of the restaurant, Ajay Saini, who described dim sums as little parcels of deliciousness and very clearly stated that momos are a far cry from these Chinese delicacies! Momos are the poor cousins, if you will. So do yourself a favour and never call dim sums, momos. Saying “dumplings” is usually an acceptable alternative! Chefs Michael quickly started rolling out the small balls of white flour dough into mini chappattis. They used a rolling pin very similar to a “dhandiya” stick, to roll out tiny, circle-shaped flour sheets. One of the ladies aptly remarked “We could break into a celebratory dance after we learn how to make dim sums” . Needless to say their speed at...
