Independence Lunch

Posted by admin | Just Food Articles - writers invited,Recipes,Salads | Tuesday 15 August 2006 4:32 am

Happy Independence Day.
60 years of freedom for India, and I’m proud to be an Indian, in the India of today. Inspite of everything; all the problems, corruption, bad roads!

What would have been nice would have been to have complete freedom from fear. Freedom from having to wake up in the morning and pray, dear God don’t let anything bad happen today. No bombs, no assasination, no violence. Ever since the bomb blasts in Bombay of 11th July, it seems like not just India but the whole world is escalating, speeding towards threats and violence.

Anyhow, being home means planning lunch for myself. And it’s going to be light. An interesting combo of odd recipes that no one at home is usually adventurous enough to try, check this…

Yoghurt Fruit Salad
Cottage Cheese Stuffed Pancakes

It’s dry today, but chilly. Maybe I should add a soup. Hmmm.

Skin and chop the potatoes into 1 inch chunks. Boil them with 1 teaspoon salt. Don’t let them get too soft.

Meanwhile, chop the apples into chunks, slightly smaller than 1 inch. Sprinkle the lime juice over them so they don’t change color.

Cut the peppers into thin strips.

Check for salt. Add pepper to taste.

Dinner for Dad

Posted by admin | Just Food Articles - writers invited,Recipes,Salads | Monday 7 August 2006 4:35 am

Dad’s birthday was yesterday and we had all the extended family over to dinner. The menu wasn’t exactly the most imaginative in the world, but everyone enjoyed it thoroughly. We served the colas of course, despite the new round of anti-cola propaganda; “the mutinationals are out to poison us!news-demics. I didn’t notice anyone refusing.
It had been pouring all weekend and been pretty chilly all day and so right at the last minute we decided that we just had to have a soup.

Here’s the menu…
Vegetable and Mushroom Soup
Potato and Apple Salad
Chatpatta Chicken( a very interesting recipe, spicy, sweet and sour! )
and we closed on Biryani, though this time it wasn’t home made but bought from famous Dorabjees with home made Banana Raita.
For dessert we took the short-cut and served Vanilla icecream with chocolate sauce.

South African Sojourn

Posted by admin | Just Food Articles - writers invited,Recipes,Salads | Saturday 17 June 2006 4:53 am

There’s a reason for my long silence. I had a quick, and very unexpected visit to South Africa. Everyone wants to know, – where did you go, what did you do there, fact is I only zipped in and out of Jo’burg on a very tight schedule, saw no lions and did all my shopping in the duty-free. But yes, I ate!

For someone who isn’t usually big on breakfast, you should have seen me start the day. The usual breakfast spread visible at most big hotels, and then some more… Eggs, exotic omelets, scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, fried eggs, sunny side up or down. Fresh juices, – from orange and litchis to grapefruit and pineapple. Sausages, salami, ham, hash browns, oats, tomatoes, olives, capers, cheeses. Cereals, yoghurt and any fruit you can think of. Breads, croissants, pies and cakes. Fish, – herring, salmon, and others that I don’t even know the names of. Topped of with tea or coffee.

Seven days wasn’t enough to try it all. And then I discovered a waffle maker! And that was it for me! Plain waffles, sweet waffles, banana waffles, topped with strawberries and maple syrup. Yum. And all this before our 8.30 am pick-up for someone who always says ‘I don’t feel like eating that early’.
