I feel vulnerable when I am out of idli maavu (idli/dosa batter). It’s like you’re at a function and nobody seems to notice you and you don’t have your phone, so you can’t act busy. You could have scrolled through your empty whatsapp chat and looked at people’s profile pictures. Now you’re forced to look at people, half-smile because it’s not clear if they’re smiling at you. You end up making conversation with some aunty next to you and realize it’s not so bad after all.

You realized you’re not as anti-social as you thought you were.
Only when I am out of idli maavu do I explore other tiffen possibilities. I quite enjoy the different tiffens that I come up with and I am surprised I didn’t try these more often. One of those days, I made Peas poha upma.

For rest of the story and the recipe to this Peas poha upma, tap the link below:

Day 31 of the 100 days of healthy eating Challenge!

Chappathi, spiced gobi mince and sprouts stir-fry.

To make gobi mince, fry chopped onion and cauliflower crumble (pulse in a mixie till it resembles coarse crumbs) in a hot pan and cook with your choice of spices - chilli, coriander, cumin, salt.

For the sprouts stirfry, fry onion and sprouts for 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. That't it.

I do not believe anyone needs a recipe to make a juice or smoothie. At-least not yet. It is so much easier to sit where we are and scroll through the list of juices and order one than to lift the bum from the seat, walk over to the kitchen, peel that fruit, chop it, dump in the mixie with milk and honey and blend and pour into glasses and then wash that blender. But I urge you to lift the bum from the seat and make the smoothie yourself because you’ll eat more fruit if you make it yourself, you can control the amount of sugar in your smoothie and you would have lifted your bum.

Pardon the delay but I got delayed doing what I don't know. So to make up for it, I am going to bombard you with back-to-back posts, Get ready folks!

Day 26 of the 100 days of healthy eating Challenge!

It's time for a whole roasted chicken. This one is spiced with an aromatic south-indian style masala. Definitely doable in a home oven. Try it. I posted the original recipe long back. Grab the recipe at the link below:

You know how our minds are tuned to think of certain things certain ways but there is usually a simple, kinder explanation.

If the woman in the house is sitting and scrolling on her phone, she must be whiling away time gossiping with friends, ignoring kids & household work.
Or
The woman may be relaxing after finishing her chores.

Vijay movies are a waste of time.
Or
This movie of Vijay is not great, but Vijay is a wonderful actor.

If it is tasty, it can’t really be healthy. If it tastes bad, it must be good for me.
Or
Anything in moderation is fine. And if the body really needs the biryani, it probably knows best.

Corn spinach sandwich may not at first sound like the healthiest option, but it is both tasty and healthy!
