Zinnias

Just threw some seeds and 2 months later , this is what I get to see . Seeds are from dollar tree 25cents for a package and it produces plenty.

What seeds you have thrown ? Sometimes ppl wait for fruits , flowers in life and don’t realize they never threw any seeds for it.

Sautéed Vegetables – Maangchi Inspired

Do you know abt Maangchi ? She has YouTube channel and shares Korean recipes . Her videos are so much fun. There are few vegetarian recipes there.

Most of the recipes I watched has onion, green onion , garlic, soy sauce, Korean chili powder, roasted sesame oil. Besides Korean chili powder I went and bought other things and sautéed vegetables. Simple recipe and takes few minutes only. No left over.

Enjoy!

Recipe Feedback

Apparently I had written few recipes for my coworker in 2011 and he had kept them. Now since he is eating just home and so started making few dishes from those recipes. He orders everything online and he is finding ingredients like beans , legumes on amazon.

Very few ppl bother to give feedback and that too honest, unbiased. Isn’t it? Coworker even gave me a tip to take these dishes to 1 notch up and that is throw some Parmesan cheese on the top. Ha .. Ha

What’s the new fun thing you are doing?

Eggplant With Onion

Eggplant with onion makes a quick, simple side dish. Eggplant is everywhere in summer so try it out. I make it with Indian spices but you can make with spices you like.

  • Use olive oil and add some chopped garlic.
    Add sliced onion and sauté for a minute.
    Add sliced egg plant and add spices, salt. Cover and cook.
    It cooks quickly in few minutes.
    You can use cumin powder , crushed pepper.
    If you like potato , add thinly sliced potato and cook until potato is done. Add little water if needed.
    You can top with roasted peanuts too.
    Eat as a side dish or find your own way.
  • Here’s recent observation through social media. When we praise anything or anyone , it’s more abt glorifying ourselves only. Isn’t it ? Next time observe yourself and think abt it. We need to learn to take backstage when needed and let others shine. Things , ppl whatever it is .

    Over Qunuoa

    Easy breezy. Just like any Indian gravy with onion and tomatoes . Just add cashew paste at the add. How to make cashew paste ? Soak raw cashews in a water for 15 mins and blend it. It will make gravy creamy and little sweet.

    This nonsense guru I know always says when it comes to right and wrong there are 3 options . Right , wrong or be happy.

    Which option do you pick ?

    Enjoy!
