In my kitchen I am the cook. Infact that is the only place where I could be accepted as someone close to a cook!! Where I make the rules, I create the recipes, I decide the ingredients and I sometimes put my legs up and simply say "I am not cooking today!!" I never cooked when staying with mom and the idea of cooking never interested me till I started cooking :) so now when i stir up something and it turns out good, i feel like framing that moment forever in memory. Choosing what to cook for the day doesnt come easy to me, and that is the reason I thought of recording some of the stuff up here. My cooking starts with looking up in google and then checking into my kitchen and doing my own version of the both. This pretty much also applies to the husband who loves to cook as well as eat. Thank you for stopping by.. Pls cheer me up with your kind words in the comment space!!
This is the write up I was to put for another blog which if i started would record recipes randomly.. for my own reference more than anothing else, because deciding what to cook really doesnt come to me naturally. I need ideas.
So sunday afternoon i was all set to start another blog. The blog name, the title and i even collected matter for the first post too.. Some interesting quotes about cooking. But then something happened and the technically not too sound me dropped the idea. I think i will continue to write them here with the tag "hungry?" as i did so far.
mushroom malai matar
veg dum biryani & aloo fry(by amit) with raita & green chutney
capsicum potato with soya nuggets(small ones)
salad without readymade dressing (cucumber,onion,tomato,lettuce or napa cabbage, corn & beans sautéed in olive oil)
different daal combo for lunch or dinner
omlette by amit in breakfast
This is what i remember having dished out in our kitchen last wk.. I have ample of time at hand these days(which i guess is evident from this blog) and I am actually enjoying cooking. The only thing I dont like much is I end up repeating some stuff. Last time I told mom that its kaddu(pumpkin) for dinner, dad jumped in the conversation and asked me 'if there is excess of pumpkin available in dubai'. its one of the veggie he cannot eat at all but i recently have developed a taste for it. We even make soup out of it often. & Maybe the dinner tonight is also going to be kaddu, though i should not tell mom about it..
When I go out buying vegetables next time, I will try to pickup things other than listed above. subject to availability/their freshness/prices etc.. Lets see.. but like what?? wait, lemme write some..okra, couliflower, eggplant, beans, carrot, radish, turai, karela, methi leaves, broccoli(i dont like), asparagus (we have never tried).. wow! i didn't realize but there are many options...
anyways, pls be kind and tell me what did YOU have in the last night meal, pls?
