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 .

  • Millet Poha + Roasted Asparagus

    Millet Poha is flattened millet. You just wash it with water and mix with your cooked vegetables. I made it Indian way with potatoes and peanuts.

    Roasted Asparagus on the side . Eating some lightly cooked vegetables everyday helps system stay clean.

    You don’t want to be in a state where only input and no output . You know what am taking abt, right?

    Bitter Gourd Subji

    Last time I went to Indian store, bought Bitter gourds. Have been eating every day little bit. Little bitter every day.

    Ppl remove bitterness from bitter gourd but than it’s no good. Don’t add any sweetener either.

    Now I ran out of bitter gourds so finding other things.

    • Methi seeds. Boil in water and make tea.
    • Roast methi seeds and make powder. Take tsp of powder every day.
    • I have dry neem leaves. Can make tea from it.
  • Have fun !
  • Roasted Cauliflower With Hummus

    If you never had home roasted cauliflower, try it. It taste so good. Idea for party appetizers which is healthy and tasty. You can make for yourself too for salad or side dish with Indian meal. It taste great without hummus too.

    Cauliflower I added little olive oil, sprinkled some kosher salt and chili powder . Roasted in toaster oven at 350F for 30 minutes. I started before meeting and so voila, after meeting I had yummy cauliflower waiting for me .

    Enjoy!

    Maggi in Vegetable Stock

    Maggi noodles is very popular in India and I had my share of maggi during college days . Once in a while I still eat it when there’s nothing else to eat. But now I add vegetables to my maggi.

    Today I made maggi in vegetable stock and it tasted good. Good way to use the vegetable stock and good for kids and adults too.

    What’s your quick meal idea and have you modified it to suit today’s need ?

    Enjoy!
