Sharad Purnima 2019

Technically today is Sharad Purnima and it’s been raining all day . Of course no moon darshan today but last night it was beautiful and I even took picture.

Today since it’s already cold , skipped dudh poha but pakora, Bhajia is perfect on rainy day , isn’t it ?

As we practice our beliefs , whatever we enjoy it’s important to be practical and ponder over the real meaning of it. Blindly doing something years and years won’t get you anywhere, will it ?


Pineapple Salsa

Everyone loves pineapple I think. Last week I went to get burrito for lunch and they had sign of pineapple salsa but it was all gone. So I decided to just make it at home . It’s so simple to make, fun to eat and sounds exotic. Pineapple is not difficult to cut and available easily everywhere.

All the ingredients are available everywhere I believe so stop making excuses. If you don’t want to make it, that’s ok. Why waste energy trying to find excuses ?

Chopped pineapple , red onion, colored peppers , tomatoes ,cilantro and lemon juice . And yes salt . That’s it .

You know you can add all these into Chana dal or Chana Chor Garam too and it will taste good. I am gonna try that . These 2 are Indian snack so not everyone will know . Chips are obvious choice though.

Update: Here’s with Chana Chor Garam. Nice spicy snack to enjoy sitting outside on a beautiful fall day.

While we are at this, enjoy this Bollywood song on Chana Chor Garam.


Dahi Vada

If you never tried Indian chat , this sweet sour spicy dahi Vada, you got to give it a shot once in life and that should be now.

And if you already love it , try to make this at home . It’s not hard. Here’s the secret and don’t tell anyone. Buy gits dahi Vada pack. It comes with recipe and like those cake mixes where you just add water and bake but here you deep fry.

Tamarind ,date sauce that goes with this is easy to make or while at Indian store just buy it if you are too lazy. I do recommend to make it at home though. It will taste better .

Basically this dish is fried balls topped with plain yogurt , tamarind sauce, sprinkle some red chili powder , garnish with cilantro. But it taste so good and 1 of my favorite easy thing to make .

Try it out and expand your food dictionary. One life to live .


Gossip , Time pass Food

Have you ever had fresh cooked Artichoke? Most of us probably had at restaurant or bought canned one. Last weekend it grabbed my attention at Walmart and so I bought it . Checked some videos and then I boiled mine .

Fun part was how to eat it . You basically scrape , suck the leaves as the meat is on the leaves and it’s so little. You can spend some good fun time with friends picking leaves and sucking meat from them . At the end , you get artichoke heart which is very little too .

If you are bored and want to eat something that will make you feel good afterwards too , try it . There are videos on how to clean , cook so watch them first. Just skip sauces ppl show you with it. It taste fine without extra loaded fat. And you will get some nutrition too on top of fun time .

Enjoy !
