Recipe : Kurkuri Arbi

Arbi... one of the humble vegetables, I loved eating it, but never dared to cook it. Reason was simple - the whole exercise of washing them, drying them, peeling them and cutting them like my mom, was too much of a task - it was time consuming and difficult. 
But then, I learnt a new way of cooking this humble vegetable post marriage from my mum-in-law. Not only, it was the easiest recipe but at the same time, it was even more delicious - made using most basic of ingredients.
Here's my mum-in-laws super simple recipe...


Difficulty Level : ☆
Time Required : 
          Preparation - 30 minutes
          Cooking - 30 minutes


INGREDIENTS:
Arbi 500 gms
Oil 2 and 1/2 tbsp
Ajwain 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida (Hing) 1/4 tsp
Salt To Taste (I used 1 and 1/2 tsp)
Red Chili Powder 1/2 tsp
Haldi 1/4 tsp
Dhaniya Powder 1 tsp
Coriander for garnishing

PROCEDURE:

1. Boil arbi. Let it cool and peel the arbi (this is the most easiest way of peeling arbi).
2. Cut it into pieces.
3. Take oil in a wok and let it heat.
4. Add ajwain and let it splutter.
5. Add remaining spices and mix.
6. Add arbi to the wok. Mix it well.
7. Cook on slow heat till its golden brown and crispy. Mix occasionally.
8. Transfer to serving bowl, garnish with coriander and serve hot.




ADDITIONAL NOTEWORTHY POINTS:
1. Keep the pieces big in size about 1 inch by 1 inch.
2. When leaving on slow heat to cook, spread the arbi across the wok so that it cooks evenly.

Cook with Love...

Prompt for the Day : Being A Woman in India in 2017 (a positive approach)

India has always had two kinds of people - Kahin Lakshmi ka Swaroop to Kahin ma-baap ka bojh (one are those who consider a girl child to be an avatar of Godess Lakshmi and other are those who consider a girl child to be a burden on the parents). India saw sati pratha and it sees female infanticide and but it has also given birth to women like Rani Lakshmibai, Kiran Bedi and Chanda Kochar. We have often heard the saying that behind every successful man is a woman who supports him. But today the dimensions are changing and in 2017, successful is a word that is associated not only with men, but women too - because today women are not content with just being in the sup…

Prompt for the Day : My Pregnancy



It's been a few months over two years since I had my son, and almost three years since I discovered that I was pregnant. It was a bittersweet journey.
Almost three years into our marriage, we started thinking about starting a family, I had my health issues to take care of, my college was about to end, I was running around for placements, clearing all levels before the HR round, facing rejection because I was a married woman.
Amidst all this, I had started my treatment for Thyroid and PCOD. And because of these issues, I knew conceiving might not be easy for me and some medical intervention might be required. My gynaec wanted to run some tests but they had to be done on certain days of my menstrual cyc…

Prompt for the Day : First Year With The Baby


A year with my son - seems like an eternity passed in that one year, but at the same time, it feels like, it got over way too soon...
Once I found out that I was pregnant, I dropped out of campus placements. My next decision was to take a break for three years and start once Shlok starts school - although my husband convinced me not to take that long a break but utilise the period to do another masters - but that's a story for another time. In the end, I spent one whole year, doing nothing but being with my baby.
I started logging his milestones right from the hospital itself - because I was recording his journey everyday from being on that ventilator to coming to me.


But once he was in my …
