Sweet soup with chicken

_MG_9408

Before I went to the gym I made my very first sweet potato soup. Before I started with the cooking, I did some research on recipes becasue I have never done sweet potato soup. However, in the end there was no recipe whcih I followed.

The base is with Indian spices such as tumeric powder, chilli, cumin and some more. I got this amazing taste from teh spices and something extra most likelt from the sweet potato. On top of that the soup had some food yogurt.
To get some extra food, chicken was fried while I heated the soup up. One thing fore sure, I would love to make sweet potato soup again.

Sad little dinner

So, sad little plate. I got this one at NK and expected more for the money. Do you think I was full after the food? No, not at all. Dor me some shrimps and salad are not enough, there has to be more. Anyways, the company was much better.

Soon of to the gym and do some workout. I have to get the tension away. May be cardio for 50 minutes… Let see.

Lunch at home

Today is an other day for pure veg food. Somehow what I really like with veg food is it feels fresh and not too heavy for the stomach. But on the other side, meat taste so much better sometimes. I have used my own cooked kidney beans.
The thing with home made cooked beans are much cheaper than the beans from the food stores. Also, I now that the beans have only been in water and nothing else.

I love this thing to have a lot of already prepared food so I can only heat it up and add some fresh vegatables too. Well, now I have to get ready and meet up my mom.

Bhel at home

Last Christmas I had an amzing holiday with my friends and families in India. I ate waaay too much of street food such as Bhel and pani puri (I can not get enough of it). So, last evening with on of my families baba took to a streeet food restaurant. My sister and brother ate so many plates as we could and even more. We had a great time, and guess what baba found?
He found bhel package to carry the bhel home. So, he bought it and gifted the bhel to me.
I have had the bhel in the package for every since last christmas, but now the package is open. And even if the flavour is not the same as the bhel in Pune. But it is so good to have bhel again! I loved it and was very happy to eat bhel with a friend. Anyway, the thing is bhel taste the best in India, on the street and see bhai preparing the dish extramly fast. while waiting on the snacks you chat with friends, see the traffic passing by. While having it home the whole environment is missing…

Oh this food from last evening was a bit too spicy for me. Too hot and it is burning. I can promise the food had a lot of garlic. But the cooking took such a long time. More or less 2 hours but it turn out really nice. THe chickens meat were soft. I can not wait to get some proper food. On the other side, Indian food smells a lot while cooking. I mean, a lot the clothes get the smell too….
Anyway, sometimes it is fun too cook non common food.

Indian cooking

I am so sorry for the bad picture, but it is not easy to be still with a lot of things going on in a super small kitchen.
My friend spoke about the spices and how the onions should look like and much more.

We made chicken and added some milk in the gravy to make the gravy less thin. However, the smell of the food was amazing. The taste was good too, better than many resturants!

Also, I made chapati 1 out of 3 was full with air, that is how chapati should be on the pan.

So excited for tonight

What a day. I have done my laundry, grocery shopping for this week and clean my apartment, final call I am studying now!
Everything is done and now I can study till the evening arrives. A Indian friend is coming over at my place to cook Indian food in my super small kitchen. The plan is to make chicken and chapati. Well, I can not say I know how to make chapati, so he is going to teach me, let see how it turns out. I am going to take a lot of photos and evaluate our cooking skills.
Also, after the dinner and so on, I am of course going to the gym for cardio. But that will be in the night.
