Pyaz ki sabzi

  Another week gone in a wink. Not much done though. Most of the time has been spent on winding up unfinished projects. Like completing painting the balcony swing, finally sewing up the sweater I had been making for B, finishing off the border for m...

Gobhi ke Parathe / Fresh Cauliflower stuffed flatbreads

 I am just back from a whirlwind tour of Calcutta ... or Kolkata, if you insist. This trip was not sudden. I was desperate to get away from everything and go on a break for a long time now but B was too caught up with work. I seriously browsed the w...

Sabut or Chilkewali Masoor ki dal / Tempered brown lentils

  This post has been on the making for the last three days. But could not be posted for lack of anything to write. I could not write. Not only because of a block but also because I could not type. Because I was petrified. Literally. My mind was numb...

Mirchi ka Achar / Green chilli pickle - 2

In every moment, hour or day, in our life, there is a lesson hidden. Every person, every animal, every change in nature teaches you something. You are vigilant enough, quiet enough inside .... you get to learn. Like I am doing these days. I am learni...
