One Sunny Day

A few days ago, I had written about a few puppies whom I hoped to see again in better circumstances. See link below.

Well, yesterday, on 19 January 2020, I finally got the chance to see them again. Their puzzled Dad, a stray dog, watched as I clicked their pics. See them below.

This only proves that like humans, some dogs are luckier and get all those things in life that one can only dream about.

Then add chilli powder and salt. Stir again for a few seconds.Your bhurji should be ready now and you can test this by pressing some grated radish between your fingers. If it is still not soft enough, let it cook some more till it is done. Garnish with green coriander. See below. Enjoy. Have it with chapati or parantha.

Going Mustard…

Winter is on in Delhi these days at full blast. Mustard leaves (Sarson) are easily available in the market now. I plucked these flowers from the bunch I bought yesterday for making Sarson-ka-sag, a North Indian delicacy that tastes best when had with Makki roti. The buds too are beginning to flower. What joy!
