Spicy Indulgence

VJ :: Soup & Bread This evening my friend Lakshmi, made Thai vegetable soup and I baked garlic and oregano bread rolls. We had a great meal followed by a chocolate chip mocha cake. All this to complement the snowy weather that London experienced. If you are looking for a recipe, do not hesitate to ask.

Shillu :: Super delicious Gutti Vankaya Koora (Cluster eggplant curry) made by Mom. Like all mom's, my mom is a great cook too & this is my all time favourite curry. I request mom to make this for all special occasions. This curry has loads of Indian spices & it takes reasonable amount of preparation time. Some of the ingredients that go into the gravy - Roasted Peanut powder, Roasted til seeds, Dry coconut powder, red chillies, Ginger, Garlic, Tamarind, onion paste, coriander, garam masala & more....Phew! But trust me - Its definitely worth the effort! Miss you Tulasi - Come soon :(
