Well, the snow is pretty blinding if you continue to stare out the window, and since I’m not in the mood to make any snow-angels outside, I thought of doing the next best thing: being an angel in the kitchen. Yeah, yeah, I know that’s lame, but still, if it conjures up images of me flying around between stove and sink and refrigerator, well, you’ve come up with a half-decent picture, I’d say. And what would all that angelic activity produce? The most angelic dishes, of course. Fit for a heavenly feast. Here’s what:
- A Palak Saag made with spinach and tomatoes, and seasoned with red onions, garlic and dry red chillies.
- A Broccoli Subzi seasoned with cumin, red onions, garlic and coconut-chutney.
- A hearty batch of Lamb Shanks pressure-cooked for starters, and then seasoned in the skillet with fried onions and a secret masala.
I guess I’ll serve this up with fresh hot white Basmati rice and whole-wheat Rotis later tonight. Picture a bunch of devils feasting on all this glorious fare!
