When i sit back and think about my microwave, i feel ashamed. Its simply because i dont make much use of it except when i boil vegetables or reheat something or may be on a rare occasion, thaw something. I know its bad. Under usage. I mean, people do so much with a microwave. And i use it only for reheating. I can almost see some bah s being targeted at me.

A chinese meal always amazes me. I m not talking of the average Chinese or rather Indo Chinese food that we get even on the streets today. When i say Chinese, i mean the real authentic Chinese meal that has plenty of veggies, some nice pungent pepper and lots of rice served with some tongue tickling and piquant sauces. I do agree that the addition of MSG is an issue to many but unfortunately, MSG is not limited to Chinese food alone today. It has spread its wings as far as a slice of pizza or even some golden fries. So, yeah if you say MSG is stopping you from gorging on Chinese, i d say you are missing out on something that s not supposed to be missed.

I am a sucker for one pot meals. Lets just say i love anything that reduces my time in the kitchen. I know this blog doesnt substantiate that statement, but truly, honestly, i hate sweating it out in the kitchen. I prefer cooking quick, easy meals that are delicious, wholesome and to a extent, healthy too. As if God heard my prayers ( which i m sure, he did), he blessed me with a husband who loves his pulao and biryani. Ok, not biryani but pulao. So, once in a week, in an attempt to preserve my sanity and to please his taste buds, i make some kind of pulao. And when ever i make pulao, i also make some kind of raita. If you are wondering what a raita is, its nothing but a yogurt dip usually made with some veggies. This mixed vegetable raita has been my favorite ever since i ate it in a restaurant. Plus, you can make this in advance and store it in the fridge for a small party or a get together.
