After a long hectic week of work, all you need is a relaxing and resting Sunday! But hey that’s not always the answer for the stressed-out work week! There are many other solutions to relax, rejuvenate and maybe even relive the good ol’ memories! My solution for the last weekend was a Cousins Day out at Fernandes!
It all started with my first cousin in the Castelino family Shaila Fernandes (now married to my Bavoji Richard Fernandes) inviting the cousins in Bangalore for a weekend family get together at her place! A plan we had started discussing over 6 months, but never got the time and opportunity to bring it to action! But atlast the day, time and the best opportunity all was set in place, when Jeethan, Jason and myself set our feet for a awesome time at SJR Redwoods Cyprus tower!
Sundays are times when I get some time to relax, let my thoughts and imaginations go wild and try to innovate or making something special for myself! Its my time on a Sunday! 🙂 Most of the Sunday’s I used to be always engrossed in something or the other, and it was a very long time since I started preparing some special cuisine! When I plan for something special or simple recipes, I try to take some tips from Shireen Sequeira and this Sunday i planned why not try some Chicken dish, and I wash in moments reading through Malbar Chicken Biryani.
Let me share the outcome of it first, so then you will realize how good the recipe came out, though I had to make some simple changes of my own, since I didnt have all ingredients and dishes too :). My room mates and me ended up, not able to walk around the house with stomach’s full until they could burst! We couldnt stop licking our fingers for the small minute taste fillers ;)! One of my best creation in recipe‘s!
It had been some time we had made anything special at our place, and it called for some googling around, and to my luck, I got an easy, yummy recipe from Ruchik Randhap – by Shireen Sequiera.
Reading the recipe and knowing that I had all things ready with me, I kept my laptop on near the kitchen and started with this not so tough recipe and the outcome, just kept my room mates licking their fingers.
Though I was not able to click any images coz I was pretty much hungry, here’s a glance for you.
Been a very long time I tried something new or shared something in the section of Food and recipes, and somehow I realised the common thing we do at home, maybe someone out there may not know how to do it, or maybe my way is easier, so I sat to write this post on ‘How to make Chapati’ the easier and best way.
Now there is Roti, Rumal Roti, Nan, Parota and so on, but Chapati is one Indian Bread eaten and most loved in all parts of India.
Let me straight away go into the making part, coz I write to the one’s who are very hungry 🙂
Yes! This weekend it was time for something new, that I had never tried before, and something tasty, and since most of my room mates were vegetarian I stuck to something veg, and yes it was Paneer Pulao.
I thought it would be tough at first, but then some research on google, just made me feel, its just another recipe I have not yet explored my taste buds on. So here how I made it, and you can try too.
All you need for this is,
To all the first time readers of my blog, this title and recipe would sound strange, but for the others, are quite ready to listen to what new thing I was upto!
Yesterday since everyone by now knows it was my mom’s b’day and me away far from her, didnt know how better to celebrate, than invent a new recipe and make it for her!
This recipe is dedicate to my mom Cecelia Jane Castelino
I was not so keen to put this on blog, but my room mate insisted that I do coz he loved it, along with others 🙂
Getting back to the title, yes the title is saying the very exact thing of what you going to make.
I also checked before I posted this recipe if any living or dead soul had done it before, and I couldnt find any, if you do please let me know 🙂
So here’s how it goes,
It was Holi Time, and I thought let me something special at home for my Holi Celebrating Guys.
But didnt know what to do, neither had any clue. Only thought came in mind was, Google-to-the-rescue.
Did some googling about Holi Day recipes, some mixture of all recipes and did our own, home made, fresh channa masala.
Some Tips to remember before you going to the recipes, you need Kabuli Channas, and they have to be soaked for 7-8hrs before cooking. I had planned for afternoon lunch, ended up doing it for dinner, coz of this
Second you need to have channa masala powder with you, so it solves all the chaotic and confusing problems.
So lets get the fire started,
Eating Eggs every other day here, I have started doing my own dishes, with my own innovations and taste that has created a new revolution in cooking.
I know I know you guys are just waiting to eat from my hands, but since its not possible for now, you can just try my own crazy recipes so that you can have Kelvin’s Dishes at you home 🙂
This time I made Egg Chilly, coz we had the Indian Kerala Bread (Kerala Parota) at home.
