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 .

  • Vegan Mushroom Masala

    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 ?

    4 Stages of Life

    Today’s post idea came from a cousin who has his own tailoring business and today was 28th anniversary. I was telling him to start teaching once a week at a community place and earn good karma.

    Vedas has laid down 4 stages also know as ashrams of life which is relevant even in today’s world and tells us how to live life .

    • Brahamcharyashram – 0 to 24 age. This time is the student life where you learn and learn and learn.
    • Grihsthashram – 24 to 48 . This time you start earning , start family , raise kids.
    • Vanaprasthashram – 48 to 72. This time you start second career in today’s term. Like you can start teaching what you worked on in 2nd stage . If you were housewife then you start showing , advising like cooking to next generation. Or something that was your dream, start working on it. Slowly let go of 2nd stage work.
    • Sannyasa- 72 to end – continue 3rd stage and live simple life .

    As ppl reach near to 50, start questioning what’s next ? Start planning your next career , inning that you can count on for another 20-30 years . You may make less money but something you enjoy and have fun with it . I have been thinking too.

    Hope this helps !

    Moth Sprouts Usal

    Moth Sprouts have a unique test and so if you are open minded with food and like to try new things , you would like it. Sprouts are good to eat. Soak beans for 8-9 hrs and then let it sprout for 12 -24 hrs. In a hot climate they will sprout fast and also depends on quality of beans. I left for 24 hrs.

    Made this Maharashtrian style usal with it . I didn’t had goda masala so not authentic but it still makes a nice fun meal.

    Enjoy!
