  4. i had penne pasta with alfredo sauce,followed by soy milk.
    btw,i would love to have the recipe for almond walnut chikki,but didnt find it anywhere,
    appreciate it,if you could post the link.

    Hello Renu, the chikki was a gift from Mandira. Like peanut and sesame chikki, the almonds and walnuts are cooked in jaggery syrup. For exact recipe, you have to contact Mandira at Ahaar food blog.

  6. I had a major burrp yesterday at a friend’s housewarming, food prepared by a Marwari Maharaj - who makes not just marwari / Gujarati food but hold your breath, Italian, Oriental, and even vegetarian Sushi :) Yesterday was a traditional meal though - Lachcha paratha, Paneer butter masala, Methi malai mutter, Achari Aloo, Kadhi, Gatte ka Pulao and baby rasgullas in rabdi with finely chopped mango…i barely managed to taste everything and yet felt like i’d eaten too much :)
    So today I’m keeping it really simple!

  10. Any recipes/ideas for Earth day ? The neem toothpowder recipe last yr was cool.

  11. We had puffed rice cereal (didn’t have poha) with toasted slivered almonds, curry leaves and cashews with a touch of chilly powder (Indian style) with hot ginger, elaichi tea. Burp ! Your radio brings back memories of my teens at a friends terrace under coconut trees listening to songs on the radio and enjoying sliced mangoes with chilly powder on summer nights. Oh that samosa, and the tikki, if only I could reach them. Thanks for sharing.

  12. Boiled Cassava with a sprinkle of lime juice, a drizzle of olive oil and a dash of red chili powder and salt. Downed with a glass of Five alive juice spiked with some jaljeera masala…….a BIG Burp after that one. I kid you not.

    That apple-mint kosambri is refreshing!

  13. Chapatis with Chole and daddojanam (curd rice) garnished with grapes and pomegranate seeds.

  14. Vegetarian chilli made with soy flakes, mixed beans and bell pepper. And a slice of Jugalbandi’s vegan war-time fruit and nut cake for dessert.

  15. Ours was a simple fare. Chayote squash, carrot and spinach in pesarpappu with rice and curd. The main attraction was the view of our sun drenched deck and gongura, tomato, chillies and bachalikura plants enjoying the sun. Definately a soul and stomach satisfying experience. Burp.

  16. Your radio reminds me of the transistor we had and we used to listen to All India Radio.

    Comment by Sapna — April 22, 2008 @ 11:30 am

  20. Well yesterday we had stuffed capsicum and rotis (my husbands favorite food). Lots and lots of it…yeah, enough for a couple of burps :-)

  21. That is a classic still-life for fine art class — makes me wish I could draw. It looks lovely Indira.

    Burping, as my daughter would tell you, is a joyous occasion to celebrate. Every time she burps she makes *such* a big deal, like this is some accomplishment! I just made Sia’s kokum rasam, via ISG. What would we do without bloggers’ recipes :)

  22. I missed commenting yesterday. Wonderful photo Indira. I used to keep my transistor at bed time during my spinster days till I fall sleep. There are usually songs for soul during night times. Today’s meal is kathirikai arachuvita kuzhambu and Chayote kootu with rasam and buttermilk.

  23. We had Aloo Parathas with some Tomato Chutney for the dinner yesterday. Enjoyed it a lot.
    The picture looks so good and serene. Lovely!

  24. Last night we had navdanya adai and avial and strawberry bannana orange smoothie for dessert.
    This is my first comment , but I’ve been following your blog for a few years now. I love your recipes because they are healthy,flavourful and something I could whip up on a weeknight.
    Thanks for sharing all your recipes, they are very inspiring.

    Comment by Vidya — April 23, 2008 @ 7:01 am

  25. We had masala bhindi with roti accompanied by fresh butter milk and papad & pickle. We both are such okra lover that we finish it everytime i make no matter how much is the quantity :D . such that there was no space left for even burp :) ) .

    Comment by Pooja — April 23, 2008 @ 7:13 am

  26. Thank you, I am glad you enjoyed the chikki! I love the picture Indira, especially the radio and the daffodils! Last night we had delicious rasam, cabbage, and homemade yogurt with rice. yummy!

  27. Thanks friends for sharing your bhojanam details in such delightful manner. Let’s hope we haven’t augmented the green house gases with this collective burp blowout. :)

    Nandita: If polar bears disappear, we know whose burp to blame. :)

    Mandira: Thank you for the delicious chikki. We finished it off in minutes. It was that good. Thanks again.
