Out of order!!

Machines going out of order is acceptable. Toilets under maintenance, as well, is bearable.
The potentiality of eliminating of clogs, blocks and all kinds of chunks, be it from a human heart or a pipeline of any kind is feasible.
Ousting of substantial disorders is relatively attainable than impalpable.
But, what if, the impediment is nowhere but mentally.

YES! a mental block, struggling to survive through this post anticipating losing it all.

Never have I ever faced this before. Is it for never being a writer or tedious previous months? (I always wanted to use the ‘never have I ever’ phrase, I get to use it at last. YAYY!!)

Or, is my creativity being crushed by my angst and stress?
Or, is it the change I am going through in my life?
Instead of relaxing and relishing the mini-uninvited break, being all jittery is the only task I have accomplished with perfection.
Months have gone by, staying motivated initially meant smooth sailing through the silent sea oblivion of the intramural storm rising with each passing day.

The mental block is piling up, so, today, deciding to go against the flow and write all about it. Since 11:00 am, struggling and yet, here I am, at 5:00 pm still battling for words and focus.

Sharing experiences:
Recently, at a local centre, I happen to meet an individual who invested his savings from his job in setting up three shops in the marketplace.
Only to find them turn to ashes one morning from the night’s blaze. Around AED half a million trickling down to just AED 500 in the pocket.
However, Love and tragedy, both, as unpredictable as our future with no fixed time, place or scenario.
Overnight bankruptcy, lifelong savings down the drain, not to mention his breakup at the time, yet, the man is content and grateful as his employees or himself remained unharmed. Helping him filter the right kind of people worth sticking around while emphasizing the value of life over the love of objects.

Positivity floods through when we meet such experienced people elevating appreciation for our situation.
Nonetheless, it is all right to go through dejection and lowliness. However, to stay dejected and miserable is not alright.

This post is my attempt to get back to what I love doing, ‘blogging’.

Let us know in the comments below, have you suffered from a mental block ever or have risen stronger from your previous fall?? Would love to hear your story.

Sizzling Fried Ice Cream

Yes, you read it right. glittercut.com, in its Ramadan Special segment, brings to you your very own recipe of ice cream which is fried: fried ice cream :-p

This enticing recipe, I had first tried it at a sea side restaurant in the city of Athens, Greece. The hot and cold jolt of the dish was as hypnotizing as I found its name to be attractive on the menu card. And, the dish was beyond our intrigue and expectations, it was just outstanding.

However, over the years after the trip, I have now mastered the knack of fried ice cream.

So, here’s the trick..

Vanilla ice cream trickling out of its shell.

Ingredients (3 servings):

Vanilla ice cream 3 scoops (chilled)

Cornflakes 1/2 cup

Bread crumbs 1/2 cup

Cookie of your choice (optional) 4 – 5

Egg 1

Oil for deep frying

For garnishing:

Chocolate syrup / whipped cream

Method:

In a blender, blend cornflakes and bread crumbs or any cookie of your choice until a fine powder is formed.

In a plate, empty the cornflakes / cookie powder mix. In another dish, take a well beaten egg.

Take a scoop of ice cream at a time, roll it in the cornflakes plate, then roll it in egg and then again roll it in the cornflakes mix plate.

Place the coated scoops on a tray and place the tray in the freezer for overnight.

“Ready-to-eat” day, In a deep frying pan, heat oil until more than ready for deep frying.

Take one coated scoop at a time from the freezer and place it the heating oil for a few seconds, or until the coating becomes golden brown. Remove promptly.

Place it on the serving dish drizzle it with chocolate sauce or whipped cream or both and serve immediately.

Tips:

Fried ice Cream is best served immediately.

Ice cream needs to be well frozen.

If you want to make it egg free, then the egg can be replaced by the ‘cornflour-milk’ mix.

For cornflour milk mix, add 2-3 Tbsp of cornflour to 1 cup of milk and mix well until no lumps appear.

This special recipe is to mark the celebration of the 50th post on glittercut.com.. Cheers!!

Thanks and love you all 🙂
