wondering why is it so, let me explain I have taken a detour and
ended up with a fusion cooking where there is a marriage of
Thai and Indian / "Cal" Calcutta, Bengali cooking methods
and in the ingredients used.
Here it goes: Seafoods in Thai yellow curry from an Indian
kitchen today .
Extracting coconut milk is far too messy Maggi coconut milk powder came to my rescue, mixed it with a cup of warm water and coconut milk with the right consistency is ready to be poured into my Thai curry.
Egg plant is another veggie which my kid is not much fond of but when it is whisked up in this curry, he ate it without a fuss! Hmm now I know how to deal with that.
Kaffir limes are not so easily available in the Indian locale market,so I've used the closest Indian variant of it called the "gondhoraj lebu "(Bengali) and it actually smells heavenly.
So there it is my Indian detour to Thai seafood curry with steamed rice and a dash of (gondhoraj) lemon juice squeezed over it ... simply divine and ready to be gorged!
Happy eating tra la la!

Picked up the brush after many years, and the mood was just like ... "going back to school" This summer we had gone to the hills of Panchgani,which is famous for its convent boarding schools. Somehow just felt like sketching this school building which had so much of character in its gothic arches,long corridors,stained glasses, colonial remnants ..... nostalgia.

The gathering clouds over Mumbai's skyline,The rain kissed Sea Worli link the newest addition to Mumbai's cityscape.
Clicking this one was getting tricky as the car's
windscreen wiper was constantly coming in between .
the rain smeared window panes,a steaming cup of ginger tea
with some hot tempuras (pakoras)with my favourite rain songs
playlist switched on in the background, is all that I need and I am
transported to another world...
the first flutter in your heart as you see the dark clouds gathering
the smell of the first showers and the moist earth,
the last drop falling from the leaves on you suddenly from nowhere.
that fading water circles getting engulfed in the puddle
school children in transparent rain slickers returning happy from a sudden declared no school day......
The list is endless I guess, do write in your thoughts to pair in with the rains.......
