Colorful lunch!

Today's lunch was Akki Rotti (bread made with rice flour). My mom had also put spinach into it. On the side, there was Rajma (red kidney beans) and a simple tomato-carrot salad. Look at the colorful plate. Simple and loaded with deliciousness!

Perfect evening snack

I think that I should resume my blogging; even if I don't write anything, I must at least put up pictures--of food, of course! So here goes:

My mom made some aloo pakoras (potato fritters) the other day for an evening snack. And they were simply delicious. Very simple to make. Just cut the potatoes into discs, dip in a batter of chickpea flour (with added salt & spices of choice) and fry! Even though I can make this pretty easily myself, there is something about mom's cooking. Automatically tastes par excellent, however simple it may be........

I had my share of the pakoras with some green chilli sauce & tomato ketchup on the side. Oh and I had a cup of beautiful adhrakh ki chaay (ginger tea) to sip on, while enjoying the pakoras. It was pouring outside too--- aah! what a perfect evening snack that was!

Yummy aloo pakoras! Did I eat all of those?? I dunno....... maybe.......!!
