The cook in me has suddenly woken up !!!
Yesterday while chatting to one of my very sweet friend, zinggy mum, she is a parsee lady and a very dear friend now, (we met each other on a scrabble board online and now are friends for life) I spoke about my Biryani… eventually I talked her into giving me some parsee recipe to make..
Now most parsi recipe are made with non-veg (eggs are not veg i assume) , and I am a jain !! Although I eat non veg, at my house only my wife eats only eggs. My bro and his wife are Jains by actions !!! lol…. however I dont qualify for any religion …
p.s. : This egg eating and all is a secret fella’s, all this happens only at my indore house. If at headquarters, in Bharuch my mom comes to know about this I am gone for good !!!!
Zinggy Mum gave me the recipe for a dish called “Papeta par eedu”….
How to make it ? Well, here we go :
Ingredients : 1 onion finely chopped, 1 potato peeled and sliced with very thin round slices of potato, 1 green chilli, 1 egg, salt, garlic, ginger
Need to fry onions in oil on a slow flame and then we add garlic, green chilli and ginger paste to it as per our taste also add a lil salt as per taste. (You can experiment here and also add Pavbhaji Masala, Sambhar Masala, Chole Masala, Garam Masala, red chillies etc … but I didnt add any of those yesterday as my sunday’s Biryani was a little difficult on Monday morning !!!! lolz….)
Once the onion are slightly cooked, add the potato slices and mix them, then cover the pan and allow the potatoes to cook. Add water on the lid of the pan so that the onions and potato do not burn. Once the potatoes are cooked, take an egg and and beat it well and then spread it well on the potatoes and cover the pan again and let it cook till the egg becomes fluffy. You can garnish it with coriander leaves and your “papeta par eedu is ready”
I made it yesterday and its yummy and different. I loved it enough to post about it today morning !!!!
After making the dish I moved to the hall to watch TV and eat and I surfed news channel after news channel to find every one was telecasting live the American President coming to take his oath !!!
I mean fine its important for America, but is it so important for us ?? Does it concern us that much that about 10-12 news channels show his oath taking ceremony live !!!
However I must confess I am amazed by the amount of optimism this man has generated, there is a euphoria about everything he does. He announces “we have chosen hope over fear” and the people go delirious. The one thing I do appreciate is how much people follow him, he is a leader and he can actually influence a lot of people. In India we sorely miss such a leader who can influence so many people.
No I am not talking about getting thousands of people to listen a speech of our politicians where most have been promised money or liquor for attending the gathering. Actually people took leaves from offices, schools, colleges and gathered to see this man speak and take oath !!!!
Unreal, Overweight expectations from this one individual. Not just Americans, the whole world is looking towards him, every one hopes he will change everything.
One thing I have learnt in my 31 years of life is whenever the expectations run high, they are met with disappointment. For once I hope I am wrong !!!
