    What is cooking tonight?

    Share with us what you yourself have (or planning to) cooked/prepared for tonight!


    And if you can share your recipes briefly, that would be great too!

    I am making pasta salad with yoghurt:

    Mix boiled pasta shapes with diced pickled gherkins and diced steamed carrots and serve topped with (garlic) yoghurt. You can also add dried mint and crushed chillies depending on your preferences.

    2 pieces of italian bread
    regular yellow mustard to taste

    Sheesh, I'm in a rut.

    Does it taste really sweet? I had some pasta mixed with yoghurt the other day I think and it's so sweet!

    We have a different dish, something we have unique in the world. Daal, Bhat and tarkari.

    Of course this is our typical food habit that we want it every where. Even we are abroad we like.

    And that is cooking!

    “Those who seek to satisfy the mind of man by hampering it with ceremonies and music and affecting charity and devotion have lost their original nature””

    “If water derives lucidity from stillness, how much more the faculties of the mind! The mind of the sage, being in repose, becomes the mirror of the universe, the speculum of all creation.

    No, not sweet at all! The garlic and gherkin make it a rather savoury dish actually. Ideal for summer days.

    Translation, my good man, translation!

    Guessing daal is lentils and tarkari is vegetables (from my feeble Persian) but...?

    I am cooking Pizza Hut...

    1. Find Menu

    2. Pick pizza base

    3. Pick flavour / topping combo

    4. Ring the 11 digit number on the menu and order

    5. (Sit and) simmer 20 - 30 mins (which will turn into 45 at least)

    6. Pay the spotty teen who is delivering that night (tip optional - recommended to the satisfaction of service)

    7. ENJOY!!



    No really, I'm an awesome cook. Just extremely lazy today TGIF and all that!!
    -Even losing you (the joking voice, a gesture
    I love) I shan't have lied. It's evident
    the art of losing's not too hard to master
    though it may look like (Write it!) disaster.

    Silence is golden. But in the absence of silence, classical music is the avenue which chaos is turned into harmonious order.

    Pasta, butter, grated parmesan cheese. Nothing more, nothing less. I eat simply sometimes.

    Another alternative to cook if you do not have the ability to cook is in your knowledge.

    Dal -- Pulses
    tarkari -- vegetables (cooked or raw). It is aslo called as sabzi
    bhat -- rice

    I will be cooking Rajma (kidney beans) curry and rice, one of my favourite dish.

    To make Rajma curry

    Ingredients : Rajma, onions, tomato, green chillies, ginger, garlic

    -- Soak rajma overnight in water
    -- boil it in the pressure cooker, until it becomes soft.

    Step1 - make a paste of onions
    step 2 -- make a paste of tomato, green chillies, ginger, garlic, all mixed in one.
    Step3 -- heat some cooking oil in the pressure cooker
    step4 -- cook the onion paste until golden brown
    step5 -- add the tomato paste in it and cook some more until the paste starts sticking to the cooker bottom.
    step6 -- add salt as required
    step7 -- add turmeric, for colour (it is optional)
    step8 -- add the boiled rajma
    step9 -- add some water

    cook for say 15 mins until everything is mixed and becomes a curry.

    eat it with rice.
    Charms strike the sight, but merit wins the soul.

    Be the change you wish to see
