Life is back to normal from today onwards.My daughters spring break is finished and she is back to school from today , so the daily routine have started, no more getting up late having breakfast in the irregular time and lunch etc......
Have to admit we had a excelent two weeks. Even though the weather here was really, really bad.
We went to London for four days which was wonderful. One of our friends asked me how was it in London and I replied to her we ate and drank and had a jolly good time :-)
Well we also went to Museums and lot of other touristical places....... also did shopping.
I did window shopping and my daughter did real shopping. I have to admit i bought few baking things from there.
Isn't it crazy i went to one of the most famous places and the main things i bought are for my cooking.
And talking about cooking, I made this kerala chick pea curry thanks to bee of Jugalbandi actually I made this before I went for the break but didn't had time to post it.
The kadal curry was really delicious. My hubby was extremley glad that I made a totally different chick pea dish, for the last 17 years I have been making the same one :-)
Bee had written, Her words......This recipe needs patience. The onions need to be cooked down for a while and caramelised to a deep brown on a medium-low flame. Likewise with the coconut. Don’t try to hurry this dish along.
It did take a bit of time to make it, but it is really woth all the time you spend on making it as it was DELICIOUS. I will be surley making it again soon.
I didn't change anything in the recipe except she used dessicated coconut I used fresh coconut.
Roasting the coconut
I remember when I had tooth pain when i was at home my mom giving cloves to me and asking me to chew on them. Don't ask me if it worked or not as I don't remember, I only remember the severe pain I had :-(
Also when I was in high school one of our sir was trying to stop smoking and he used to chew these cloves always. No idea if it worked.
Only thing I remember is we girls used to give him lots of cloves ( you know to please the teacher) which we used to take from our mom's kitchen.
I am sure all the moms were thinking to themselve are they using so much cloves as it was getting finished so fast.
Little did they know their daughters were taking it for giving to their favourite teacher :-)
