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 ?

    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!
