If I were at home at this time of the year, I would sit at the terrace wearing a loose sweater, and a shawl to cover my eyes; winter sun is pleasantly piercing you see. .
.
I would munch on peanuts with green chutney or eat fresh guavas sprinkled with lil rock salt while mom sits there wrapped in her maroon shawl, peeling a big batch of peas to make Nimona later in the evening.
But mostly I would blissful doze off to her stories building up like fluffy yarn of tiny sweaters she knits for new babies.
.
Winter is scarce here in mumbai but I still got saag and makki ka aata the other day. Today we eat mooli and methi partha made with makki ka aata and tangy tomato chutney. .

Some days we need bunch of butter melting away on paratha.

This lunch of methi roti with a dollop of butter ( I like it better this way than paratha), gwar and amla chutney.

This weekend was so much fun because this sweetheart @awryanu came to see me all the way from Bangalore.
There was a lot of eating (out mostly), Mumbai Darshan, street shopping, chatting and drinking (very moderately). Also, my body found ways to tell me that we are not that young anymore.. Sighh πŸ˜ͺπŸ˜ͺ So a simpler breakfast today. Eggs with some vegetables, sprouted green grams and of course cup of tea. Will try to keep it light for next couple of days.
Hope you are having a good day πŸ˜„πŸ˜„.

A not so interesting looking lunch plate. Dal, torai and brown rice.

So I got some greens the other day without any idea what they were. Today a lil taste check while cooking and I kid you now, they were tangy like tamarind..I have not had such green before...didn't know what to do with them so mixed them with arhar dal..came out okish.

Do you guys know what this green is and how to cook them? Please let me know.

#tbt to these absolutely delecious, nostalgic traditional Phare. These are rice flour dumplings with lentil filling.

Mom always used to makes these for Karwachauth and it was one of my favorite part. So now I also make them for Karwachauth every year and binge on them. .

I am not a kheer person but Diwali dinner happened in a hurry so thought of giving it a try.

This three ingredient Makhana kheer was such a delight. Makhana, milk,  condensed milk and it was magic. 
Some things are just as good without being complicated.

A hurried photo of what happened after pledging to husband that there will not be any cooking this Diwali. πŸ₯˜πŸ₯˜πŸ˜ΆπŸ˜Ά .
- Suran or jimikand (sort of yam)
- spicy potato curry
- Makhana kheer
- Aloo parwal
- Poori
- Aloo Kachori
- of course Pulao
- and boondi raita

I am still full and making chicken curry for lunch πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”. I think I can go without food for a week now.

Just when I begin to feel good about being regular here and keeping in touch with all of you something comes up and whacks up all the order.
Work was crazy amidst not feeling well but there were some good times with family and friends. A wonderful evening with friends over chai and coffee.

I did end up making chicken Tikka (pan fried version though). Best part is that this takes minimal effort. Marinated chicken yesterday in yogurt and spices and fried in lil ghee today. Soft, crisp, juicy and spicy. 
I feel better already. Thank you guys for all the love. Muahh 😘😘
