And I cook :)

The ample free time I have got has led me to discover A new love – Cooking !

My mom says that I am a very good cook but I think she is bias..

Anyways, this a random amateur attempt and I hope you guys try this out, if not already done that :

(P.S : I think it is a known recipe and I did not discover this.. but it is too yummy.. so I just had to share :p)

Instant Rava Uttapam.. 

(Since I was hungry and I couldn’t find anything else to eat)

Ingredients (I feel like the cookery show lady- iske liye humein chahiye.. )

1 cup semolina (rava)
1 tbsp ginger (adrak) – grate it
1 cup curd (dahi)
1/2 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
2 tbsp chopped green chillies
Add any veggies you like….
I added grated beetroot and carrots, made it look colorful and also made it healthy 🙂
salt to taste – Namak, swadanusaar 😀
oil

Method (Ise banane ki vidhi )

  1. Heat a pan and roast the rava for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Combine the roasted semolina, ginger and curd in a bowl and mix well, adding water if required. make sure the paste is like semi-solid..
  3. Cover and keep aside to ferment for 40-60 minutes. This will also make the paste thicker , so keep it mind 🙂
  4. Add the salt and mix gently. you can add little chat masala, if you like chatpata food 🙂
  5. Heat the oil in a non-stick pan, pour a ladle-full of batter and spread it in circular motion to make a thin uttappa..
  6. Top it with little onions, tomatoes , veggies and the chillies
  7. Cook from one side, using little oil, turn over and cook from the other side. Be careful.. but remember, it is not as difficult as it looks..
  8. Make some more
  9. Serve hot with coconut/chana-dal chutney.
  10. Enjoy ! Relish !
  11. Try this and let me know how it turned out :)Sorry I forgot to click a picture 😦

    Hunger took over 😦

    But I am adding this image from google.. It looked more or less like this ..just that mine was more colorful 🙂

P.P.S : This idea of food blog originated in my head thanks to my new pen-pal.. Midnight Shadow.. Thank you buddy 🙂

Be her Escape…..

Be her escape. Let her wake up to your ‘good morninggg.’ Tell her what you are upto. Call her when she refuses to. Listen to her ramble. Tell her she is crazy. Tell her you are addicted to her insanity. Tell her she makes no sense. Let her get mad at you. You love it. That’s when she is yours. Let her talk about the weirdest places and the cute guys. Fall in love with her randomness. Ask her why she doesn’t dress up like others. Call her cute. Be possessive. Don’t keep your promises. Disagree. Tell her to shut up. Apologize. Tell her never to shut up. Tell her how you hate goodbyes. How people never mattered. How much you missed her. How life sucked. She will cry. Tell her only idiots do that. She knows she is one. She doesn’t mind. Tell her its okay to be messy. Tell her you need her to make you smile. She loves to see you smile. Call her bro. Ask her for a walk. Give her a reason to keep believing in you. She hates surprises and loves gifts. She hates lovestories and loves fairytales. Gift her a fairytale. Let her be the drama queen. Be her escape once again.

A to Z Challenge.. D – Demons

When the days are cold
And the cards all fold
And the saints we see
Are all made of gold

When your dreams all fail
And the ones we hail
Are the worst of all
And the blood’s run stale

I wanna hide the truth
I wanna shelter you
But with the beast inside
There’s nowhere we can hide

No matter what we breed
We still are made of greed
This is my kingdom come
This is my kingdom come

When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide

Don’t get too close
It’s dark inside
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide

At the curtains call
It’s the last of all
When the lights fade out
All the sinners crawl

So they dug your grave
And the masquerade
Will come calling out
At the mess you’ve made

Don’t wanna let you down
But I am, hell bound
Though this is all for you
Don’t wanna hide the truth

No matter what we breed
We still are made of greed
This is my kingdom come
This is my kingdom come

When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide

Don’t get too close
It’s dark inside
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide

They say it’s what you make
I say it’s up to fate
It’s woven in my soul
I need to let you go

Your eyes, they shine so bright
I wanna save that light
I can’t escape this now
Unless you show me how

When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide

Don’t get too close
It’s dark inside
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide

A to Z Challenge.. C – Coffeeeeeee

Ah, C. An open circle. A hug in the making. Representing so many influences in my life. Should I talk about my CAT, trying to trip me if I take too long a step? Or maybe CHOCOLATE, that nirvana of food.. I ‘ll stick to Coffee.. My sober Addiction 🙂

Coffee smells like freshly ground heaven.
Coffee Quotes – Jessi Lane Adams

So, is coffee good for you?

Coffee tastes great and motivates you to start the day on a happy now, but what about its health benefits?  A growing body of research shows that coffee drinkers, compared to nondrinkers, are:

  •     less likely to have type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, and dementia
  •     have fewer cases of certain cancers, heart rhythm problems, and strokes

However, they are not saying that coffee can prevent those conditions. As with anything, moderation is key.

And now…

Everybody should believe in something. I believe I’ll have another coffee.
