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 ?


Shakarpara – Indian Travel Snack

India is a hot country in general and so there are snacks , food ppl invented that will stay good for weeks to eat during travel. Deep fried, fermented food generally stays good for a longer time and even today you will see ppl carrying it when they travel. Shakarpara is 1 of those good snacks and it doesn’t have any preservatives. It’s loved by all age group, very simple to make and needs few ingredients that most of the ppl will have it home.

This holiday season , try and make this sweet treat of India. It goes well with tea, coffee. You don’t need to travel to India to enjoy this. There’s a joy when you make it at home and you know what went in. So it needs wheat flour and/or all purpose flour , sugar , milk and oil. I know you have these ingredients at home. I skipped cardamom powder and followed this recipe:


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.
