Leafy Petals

A lot of trees are shedding leaves these days in Delhi (January 2020)

Winter is at its peak, but it will be on its way out by next month end. So trees are getting ready too…

See some more pics below.

They remind me of the lovely lyrics from Cliff Richard’s song ‘Evergreen Tree,’ “Oh Darling, I love you so, don’t you know that I’ll be true/ Till the leaves turn blue/On the evergreen tree…”

Winter Flowers

Winter is always such a dull, grey, depressing thing, isn’t it? Chills, fog, mist, sore throats, cough, and a lot of discomfort. But in spite of all this, your day is  made when you find lovely flowers hanging from the trees and balconies in the midst of all this like jewelry with the sun light streaming through the gaps between branches and leaves. It feels great to be alive…Here are some pics…

 

 

 

A Winter Recipe

At the peak of winter, when it’s chilly, misty, and cloudy outside and the plants are bereft of green leaves, it’s best to head to the kitchen and make these unusual pakoras for yourself and your family. Have them with a cup of hot masala chai. It will drive away the blues and make you feel better.

Here are the step-by-step pics…

1. Grind some cauliflower ganthals (stalks) along with a bunch of garlic, some ginger, and a green chilly. Take out this paste in a vessel and add besan (black gram powder) to it.

Add salt, ajwain, hing, amchur, cumin powder, and coriander powder as per your taste.

Mix well.

Take out spoonfuls of this batter and deep fry in hot oil in a Karahi till they turn brown all over.

Place them in a plate once done. Enjoy with a dip of your choice and a hot cup of tea.

Happy eating!☺️
