Confession time: I titled this post initially as “another comeback” and later changed it to something yummier (yeah yeah, so that you’d pop by to read, happy?). I miss being here as often as I used to be and as often as I want to be. I read your posts on my reader but life sweeps me off my feet before I can do anything else. Yes, I have been busy and caught in the several labyrinths of life. While it has all been exciting, there is always this nagging feeling of not being able to say everything here and write as often as I want to. When I do get some time of nothingness, I am so excited that I am clueless what all I can catch up on. Summarizing it all, I am sorry. I may do it again but not without being bothered and unhappy about it.
Moving on to more important life-changing things: The details can really wait. But what cannot wait is this awesomeness I found in Little India, just beside Mustafa infront of Tandoori restaurant. Tandoori makes these from 6:30 PM until 10 PM or so (when I checked last).
Don’t search for a photo of the finished product – I’d be a fool to click pictures of heavenly jalebis instead of eating them right away. If you are in Singapore and are reading this between 6:30 PM – 9:30 P.M., go right now! The man makes amazing jalebis that are crispy, sweet and sour just the perfect way and piping hot and soaked in just the right amount of syrup – Please excuse me while I wipe my own drool. No matter how best a friend you are, this is one thing I wouldn’t share.
If that’s a lot of sweetness for you, then I have the right snack for you. On a lovely evening, I made these beauties –
If making samosas ever seemed daunting to you, say bye to that feeling this instant because they are that easy to make. The internet is full of recipes but with some brainstorming with ma over phone, we kind of came up with our own version.
Weekend cooking has been giving me a high I can’t describe. On weekdays, I spent a good time thinking of what is in the refrigerator and what is the easiest possible combination that can be called a meal. Hunger, laziness, impending reading etc factor in during this decision-making process. But on weekends, I look forward to making everything from tea and lemonade to something exotic like nicely browned samosas. I have been thinking of a food blog for a while now. I think this year will see me put that plan in action. I know zilch about food photography and the maximum decoration I can do is place some corriander in the centre and on top of the dish. But I’d love to have a working kitchen kinda food blog of sorts. Hmm, you get the drift? What do you think?
