Okay, I most say I love mongos, but who does not?
Anyway, today for lunch was mango. That is something I do not say every day. More or less, never beside when the season for mangos from Pakistan. This mangos from Span were really huge, bigger than the Pakistani.
Pure joy to eat this one.
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.
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.
Yesterday evening was really nice, after 2 months without work I was back at the office and meet this amazing people once again. I must say my coworkers are the best, we work like a team. Anyway, yesterday was stuff meeting so at the meeting we got pizza for dinner. For the first time I tried curry pizza. The pizza had a intresting taste, curry, chicken and banana, a bit too sweet for my taste.
however, today is a new day with a lot of activites such as studies till 11 than lunch, college 1-4 pm, meeting up a friend at the station. From 6-8:30 is Rotaract meeting after the meeting is of course gym time for 40 minutes and the final stop is the bed. So, I won’t have time to do updats today.
My wired soup, I did not really have time to make think what I was making for lunch, instead I put everything in my cooker. At least my lunch was healthy!
Today I tried green lentils instead of oranges. The green does not get destroyed that easily.
This patch turn out tasty after adding chili flakes.
The green lentils cooked with ginger, cummin seeds, tumeric powder also some cloves and tomatoes. Also, some water.
When ever the heat is missing the flakes is the best solution to get some heat. I am really pleased.
For some days ago a friend and I went to a Indian store near to Drottninggatan to buy things for our indian cooking. I bought a lot all of things beside one spice which I have almost nothing left. One of the major reasons why I went to the store to buy that spice and I totaly forgot it.
Anyway, so today I mad daal after weeks with non-veg!
While cooking the daal I managed to forget the time and the daal become too thick. However, too thick dall is not that big of a problem. I prefer too thick daal than a too thin and watery. Becasue I can always add some water when the daal is heating up.
For this daal I used all ready mad masala becuase the energy for mixing and adding all the requried spices take time and energy which I did not have.
The daal is mixed with coscos, becasue I want to finish coscos very soon. I am hoping i can sson do chapati because I miss it so much.
I was really surprise how the dish turn out. Simple dish, but no too bad. The main spice I used was something from Kirgizistan and was red. Anyway, I have no clue how the spice should have been used but now it is over and I have some portions left of the fish. What I really like with this dish is all the green vegatables.
Todays lunch was simple as always. If I should spend a lot of time on cooking, its only happning during the weekends and in the evenings. Never for lunch, even if I got a lot of time. No, for lunch the dish has to cook fast, and nothig else.
Fast and faster so I can still my hunger.
Therefore, today my lunch was made with salmon, onion, corn and tomatoes. Simple and easy. On top of that some spices such as chili. The worst part my spice collection is becoming thiner and I have to buy more spices in the local indian stores.
In the background is my window lamp with a shap of a pineapple!
I do not have the energy to cook good food everyday. Who has the energy? Therefore I really like to be able to prepare 3-4 food boxes with food which mean I am saving a lot of time during the week. Also, the best part, I do not need to eat unhealthy food or half brand. But, it take time to prepare and cook better food. But, may be I should spend more time to cook good food then buy half already made.
Therefore, I am pleased to say I made dal, it is so simple to make wth a pressure cooker. I think that is one of the best things I got with me from India. Beside the need to fry the spices and onions the lential can easily be added with water and boile after three puffs it is done. Simple.
So, my lential mix for today was with green lential (they do not break that easily compare with the red one). two onions, 2 garlics, 1 red chilli, mustard seeds, coriander, ginger poweder (I do not have fresh one at home).
Somehow I miss the mess daal, it was the best thing they could make. 2-3 bowls of dal and chapati and talking to friends. Yes, what a great time we had.
So, for some weeks ago I had this amazing meat soup with my grandsparents and could not stop thinking about the dish. Therefore, I decided to cook the dish today, while I needed to do huge grocery shopping.
I really liked the soup, however due to the hugh amount of meat, I could not follow the recipe to 100 %.
1 kg meat,
5-10 new potatoes 2 carrots
2 red pepper
cut everything in small pices. Put the greens and the meat in the pan and fry. When everything are fried add the tomatoes, stocks and everything else. Let it boild for some time and then it is tasty and read to eat.
