God forgive me for this, but I happily facilitated the divorce of the ever popular and the ever green couple – makke di roti and sarson da saag. 😈

Since time immemorial the people of punjab have been enjoying the rustic flavour of this beautiful couple and then finish it off with a serving of lassi or fresh curd and white butter.

Now makke has this cousin called as missi. While makke di roti has this natural sweetness of maize, missi di roti brings out a mix of besan and wheat. Both delicious and both compliment sarson equally well. 😎

While makke gets the liberty of pairing with sarson every now and then, poor missi is left alone. 😦 So today, I helped facilitate the divorce and coupled missi and sarson together.

Don’t they make a good pair??? :mrgreen:

dsc00782.JPGOne of the very common gujju dishes for everyday cooking is sev tamata nu shaak (sev and tomato curry). Quite a strange combination right!!!!! Now the main funda behind this wierd combination is that tomato being such a juicy vegetable fruit, it oozes out lot of water when cooked which makes the curry very watery!!!!!!!!!! And when you dip your chapati into it and put it into your mouth the juice from the curry runs all the way down your fore arm!!!!!!! And then you go licking it all the way!!!uuuuuuuugggggggghhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!! And hence the addition of sev into it which absorbs the watery part and makes the curry thick and rich!! 🙂

Coming from a gujju family this one was a sure favoutire of all……. except me!!!! I never enjoyed this wierd combination of sev and tomato together and hence my mum would use different kind of spices and make the gravy thick!!!! Can spices make the gravy thick????? Yes they can!! 🙂 Addition of dhania jeera powder and a teaspoon of besan/gram flour will give a nice thick texture to any watery gravy. Let see how…….

Everyone knows that February 14th is officially the most romantic date of the year, but do we know why?
Here are eight Valentines Day facts for you to amaze your loved one with.

  • Long before St Valentine lived, February 14th had strong links with fertility. The date traditionally is known for when birds choose their mates.

  • February 15th was the date of the Roman festival of Lupercalia – the Wolf – where young men held a lottery to decide which girl would be theirs.

  • In Medieval times, girls ate unusual foods on St Valentine’s Day to make them dream of their future husband.

  • In the Middle Ages, they also believed that the first unmarried person of the opposite sex you met on the morning of St Valentine’s Day, would become your spouse.

  • Elaborate handmade messages, cards and gifts became popular during the 17th century.

  • During the middle of the 17th century even married people took a Valentine – not always their legal ‘other half’!

  • By the 19th century printed Valentine’s cards were on sale and extremely fashionable – in 1825 the Post Office handled more than 200,000 letters more than usual on St Valentine’s Day.

  • No one really knows who St Valentine actually was. There are two men who could be responsible for the traditional association with love and marriage, but the most likely theory is that Valentine was a priest during the reign of Roman Emperor Claudius II.
    The story goes that Emperor Claudius had issued a decree that Roman soldiers were not allowed to marry – because marriage would inhibit their ability to fight.
    But romantic Valentine continued to marry soldiers in secret, until eventually his clandestine activities were discovered and he was jailed. Before being beheaded he fell in love with his jailer’s daughter, for whom he left a note signed ‘Your Valentine’ before he was led away to his death.

==================================================

So how does that look!!!??? Are all your new year resolutions to loose weight going down the drain???!!! hihihi….. just kidding!!!!! 😉

Forget the low cal food and indulge into rich delicious foods with your family and loved ones in this season of LOVE!!!!!
