Quick Crispy Veggie Fritters and some Old Projects

Hi everybody,

How are you all today? Well, I'm still in Mumbai (Bombay). Thankfully, the rains have taken a break and the warm sunshine has made me a little cheerful again! :)

Well, I made these Veggie Fritters the other day - Very Modest ingredients, Very Quick, Very easy to make and Surprisingly Crispy and Yummy! I want to share the recipe with you. Hope you guys like it!

Veggie Fritters:

Cabbage (Medium): Half
Carrot: 1
Capsicum / Green Pepper: 1
Onion: 1
All-Purpose Flour: 1 Cup
Salt: To taste
Oil: For Frying

1) Finely Chop all the Veggies together. You could chop them all together if you want.
2) Add the Salt and Flour to it.
3) Add Enough Water to make the mixture sticky. Mix well.
4) Deep Fry till they turn Golden.
5) Serve with Tomato Ketchup.

Trust me, its very simple to make and very yummy! Very convenient when you have unexpected guests over!

Sorry for the poor picture quality. I was in a real hurry so I took this pic with my cellphone....I know, I'm Pathetic! :p

Anyways, I want to share a few projects that I had done in the past. I came across these pics and just couldn't resist myself from posting these.

This was a Cross Stitch Pattern that I had done when I was in School (Grade 5, to be precise). I was 10 at that time. My mom has still kept it safe in a bag (Aren't Mom's the greatest?)

I loved it so much that I actually wrote my Name and Class on the sides so that incase I lost it somewhere in school, it could be found and returned back to me! :p


And now these flowers, these aren't that old. I made them last year, some from Crepe paper, some from Stockings. Aren't they beautiful?? 


Anyways, I hope you guys didn't find this post boring :P

In the meantime, I'm linking to:

Prayers for Mumbai...Say No to Terrorism!

Dear friends,

Mumbai was once again in sorrow as terror hit the city, yet again! 3 Bomb Blasts ripped across the city yesterday, Thursday, 13th July 2011. Here is some footage from the Blasts. 

I came to Mumbai 4 days ago and as if the Constant Drizzling wasn't enough to be depressed, when this happened. Atleast 21 people were killed and 141 were injured in this terrible incident. Yet, the Resilient Spirit of Mumbai stood firm and minutes into the blasts, people offered help in the form of food, medicines, transport, blood donation and more. 

Its so shocking, I don't know what to say. I don't know what thrill people get out of killing others, I mean do these terrorists have a heart? All we can do is pray for those who were killed, for their families and for those were injured.

Thats all for now Folks! I just don't know what to say!

....And I'm back!!! :) Life in Chennai and A Recipe for Egg Curry!

Hi Guys!

How have you all been?? Long time, eh?? Well, I'm in India, trying to set up my cozy li'l flat, its so much fun, trust me! Well, its more homey now, after all, a Woman makes a House a Home! ;)

So far, I'm loving Chennai (Madras)...Its so much better than what I had expected! The people here are so warm and friendly! :) The only thing I hate about this place is the water! It has ruined my hair :( My hair has never looked so bad before! Luckily for me, I got a jar of Schwarzkopf Conditioner from Saudi Arabia, I managed to fish it out from my bags and lets see, I'm hoping for a  miracle here! ;)

So, let me tell you guys a li'l about the flat we've rented. Well, since we're gonna stay here for just about 6 months, my husband insisted on getting a small one. Its tiny but real cozy, it has a living room, a bedroom, a Kitchen, a Utility Room and a Bathroom. But I am not very fond of the landlord, he's strictly prohibited us from re-painting the walls, drilling holes on walls to put shelves or even nails, changing the light fittings etc. I mean what am I left with now? Decorating this place is gonna be such a tough task! :(

Anyways, you can always tell that a woman lives in a house when you see:
1) A Clean Kitchen Top :p

2) A Well Made Bed

3) Cosmetics :)

4) And Fresh Veggies!

Lols...Anyways, I made an Egg Curry-Indian Style and surprisingly, it was really good! :) I wanna share the recipe with you all today.

Egg Curry-Indian Style


Boiled Eggs - 3 or 4

For the Gravy:

Tomatoes, Ground or Very Finely Chopped - 2
Onions, Sliced - 3
Garam Masala - 1 teaspoon
Ginger Paste - 1 teaspoon
Garlic Paste - 1 teaspoon
Turmeric Powder - 1/4th teaspoon
Red Chilli Powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Green Chillies, Slit - 2
Cilantro, for Garnishing


1) Heat some oil and fry the Sliced Onions till they turn golden brown.

2) Add the Chopped Tomatoes and saute on medium heat for about 5 min.

3) Add the Ginger Paste, Garlic Paste, Garam Masala Powder, Turmeric Powder, Red Chilli Powder and Salt and stir well. Saute for another 5 minutes.

4) Add about a quarter cup of water and stir well, let the gravy cook on medium heat for a few minutes. The raw taste of the spices should fade away. Add some more water if you want the gravy to be of a thinner consistency.

5) Add the Boiled eggs into the gravy. Add the Slit Chillies. Stir well. Simmer over low heat for 2-3 minutes.

6) Garnish with some freshly chopped Cilantro.

Well, that's it for now.

Love you all!
