I am a greedy girl and I want all of my favourite food regularly.Especially the comfort food made by my mom(READ fried snacks).

Yes my MA makes the most delicious,ravishing,mouth watering comfort food.
Since last one week ,I am feeling a little lost and missing my mom a lot.Although we stay in same city,but my busy schedule(as a doctor) doesnt allow me to visit my mom very often.By the way a city like MUMBAI makes me travel for 2.5 hours to reach my moms place.And we call it same city...phew((((

So whenever I miss my mom I make her fuss free comfort food.And this time it is Stuffed cottage cheese fritters.

My stomach is churning,heart is craving and mouth is watering for this yummy snacks.Lets start cooking.
