Muslim style mutton biryani

Muslim style mutton biryani

So long since I shared a recipe here. Truth be told, I began to ask myself some very fundamental questions – who needs one more food blog? No one. Do people even read recipes these days leave alone the story that comes with it? Nah. Hasini taught my mother to search for recipes on youtube and together they tried recipes off the youtube channel. So there you have it makkale. My own daughter and my mother do not look up my blog. Their ragi idlis turned out like ninja blades you can throw to injure people. Not that I’d be as mean as to make fun of their attempt. Of course not. Anyways I had this whole – why to do? Does it matter? kind of existential-mid-life crisis about the blog just like with many other things these days. And Self-doubt. The hallmark of any good writer. And hair-fall. And infinite work. And Writing took a backseat. Isn’t that always the case with women. You give from your own share of ice cream as long as you don’t have to go and make ice cream or quell fights or persuade people. Giving up your share is the easiest. Lazy and pacifist that I am, I am usually ready to give up ice cream and soda and soup if I can just sit un-disturbed. So I didn’t write most of this year. But recently when I read someone’s blog post from long ago, the original text kind with a few pictures, I was drawn in by the blogger’s story, her world, her life. I remembered why I started blogging originally. I’ve always wondered whether my Maths teacher wore the same kondai (bun) at home and if she smiled and if she made rasam everyday, if the pretty north-eastern girl giving me a pedicure fought with her room-mates over what to eat for dinner and how that the loud aunty on the treadmill next to me and who was always on the phone had so many friends. Before you wrongly report me for stalking, I meant that people’s stories are like a window into their different worlds, fascinating and original. It is this that brings me to write and read. I still believe in it. So I decided that I ought to write if for the one person far away somewhere who wants to read a good story. Now that I’ve given...

Lockdown diaries – Finding happiness

I thought hard and came up with a list of things that bring me happiness these days. Necessity is the mother of all invention. Lockdown is the motherf**ker (oh sorry, forgot that this is not a rap song) of all of mankind’s joys - going out, playing a game, being friends, trusting each other, eating pizza. Actually an Eminem style uncensored in-your-face frustration-busting rap feels more natural at this time. Since we need to do the right thing even if it’s harder and also since I cannot rap (not even ‘gully boy’ level, whatever it was) I’ll do what I do best. I’ll write a post. I am trying to keep the faith just like all of you. I believe everything will get better. Hope this helps you reflect on the little joys in your life.
Project 50k - Weekly DIET-MEAL PLAN

Project 50k Weekly Meal Plan 1 – Diet Meal Plan

I was scrolling through my Instagram feed. Really? You’re stuffing ricotta into ravioli and then deep-frying it. And you are sandwiching ice-cream between cake and dunking in melted chocolate and then frosting it. And with the slightest hint of rain, before the radio channels can switch to rain songs, food bloggers are out in action with a flurry of deep fried pakodas and bajjis in their feeds. Really? How do you guys know I am on a diet? Where are the salads and health drinks and smoothies? Deep fried crisp fritters, bubbling oil, melting cheese and dripping chocolate are sexy. They truly are food porn. And you can’t compete with porn. There wasn’t a harder time to be on a diet. The first couple of weeks of a diet can be agonizing and frustrating at times. Hang on though. There’s nothing like seeing the weigh scale show you a smaller number. I don’t think diet meals need not be boring or bland. It is totally possible to have healthy, delicious diet meals. I rounded up six of the diet meals that I’ve been making lately to help provide you some inspiration to make your own tasty diet meals. I love that most of these meals can be served to the entire family or you can pick one or two of the components of the meal for yourself. I am keeping it simple. Most of us don’t have the time, energy or resources to cook separate meals for ourselves. #Project50k is about real people with busy, messy lives pushing themselves to reach their goal weight. Tap the images below to get the recipes to those dishes.   The past week wasn’t too great for me. I ate out twice and missed gym most of the week. I am therefore making an extra effort to eat right the rest of the days. How has the past week been for you? Share your progress, story with me.   I’ve also been busy testing a few theories the past couple of weeks – Kelloggs special K, 30 day AB workout plus a few home remedies. I’ll share the results of those tests in the coming weeks. Stay focused. We can do this. Keep moving and eat well!
