The only butterfly in this sandwich is the shape J A hot grilled sandwich is an all time favourite in our house. I usually dress up some left over stir fries with white sauce- stuff it in between two slices of bread and grill it till crisp and you get Irresistible, yummy crisp sandwiches. The stir fries which get this L look in the morning (usually for lunch) suddenly get this J look with the grilled sandwich. Enjoy this hot grilled Butterfly sandwich with a cup of tea in the wet cozy rainy weather!
The last 2-3 days have been really very busy, with my little one having a severe bout of Flu. Life comes to a standstill when he is unwell.So cooking had to take a backseat. For a quick breakfast yesterday I had Oats and puffed Rajgirawith buttermilk. Puffed Rajgira (top) and Oat Bran I could find a packet of Oat Bran (Bagrry’s) thanks to the Reliance Fresh outlet here.
From incessant torrential downpour the Monsoon has shifted gear and we now have light showers. That must be sounding like a weather update to you J The wet rainy weather is just perfect for a hot piping Coriander soup, which we had for dinner last night. Photographing soups is quite challenging for me Jand you can see that the result doesn’t make justice to the Coriander soup…It is much more tempting and tastier than it looks in the photo!__________________________________________________________Coriander Soup recipe _____________________________________________________
Winter is almost here and the temperature is gradually dropping down. I love this season since we get a variety of very fresh vegetables and fruits here. Veggies like carrot sport their actual pink -red color, instead of the orange-red color found during the rest of the year.Preserving fruits and veggies is also easier during this season. I stock on veggies and fruits for the whole week in this season without bothering about them rotting. These are few simple salad recipes I usually make. These are some contemporary mix-n-match type of salads, made with the available ingredients, not the typical…
Still no respite from the incessant rains here! After a break of exactly 1 & ½days, Mr.Monsoon has reported back to work. I follow a food routine during this season: 1.This is the season, when I indulge in my favourite fries, bhajjis, samosas etc.. to brighten(???) these wet ,gloomy, lazy days( that’s my excuse). 2.Then Guilt visits me and I am suddenly reminded of words such as nutrition, fat,health etc… 3.Then I follow a strict diet of nutritious healthy foods like veggies, soups etc…to cancel out the not so healthy munchies.
