Lunch for the lasses

Last weekend, one of my wife's friends came over visiting. Needless to say I had to endure a weekend of gossiping and giggling. While they went about gallivanting around town, the task of cooking lunch was left to me.

So, I had the house to myself, which is not a bad thing. I have two recipes to write about. One is a very easy ghee rice and the other is a basic egg curry.



Ingredients:

1. Cumin seeds - 1 tablespoon

2. Cloves - 4

3. Sliced green chillies - 1

4. Vegetable oil - 3-4 tablespoon

5. Ghee / clarified butter - 3-4 tablespoons!

6. Cinnamon sticks - 1-2 teaspoon

7. Green peas - 1 cup

8. Salt - 1 teaspoon (or to taste)

9. Ginger strips - 4

10. Sliced carrot (juliennes) - 1

11. Pepper - 2

12. Basmati rice - 4 cups

13. Water - 8 cups

14. Coriander leaves - 1 bunch

15. Mace - 1

Recipe:

1. I used an electric cooker to make this dish.

2. Except the rice and coriander, add all the ingredients into the cooker. Saute for a few minutes.

3. Add the rice and water.

4. Cook until the rice is ready. You can toss the rice a couple of times while it is cooking.

5. Finally, garnish with coriander leaves if you want.

Tip: As a variation, feel free to add any other vegetables. Try to keep the number of vegetables to one or two. If you want, you can turmeric too, to get the colour.



Ingredients:

1. Vegetable oil - 3-4 teaspoon

2. Salt - 1 teaspoon (or to taste)

3. Chopped onions - 1

4. Diced tomatoes - 1

5. Cumin seeds - 1 tablespoon

6. Fenugreek seeds - 1 tablespoon

7. Sliced green chillies - 1-2

8. Ginger garlic paste - 1 teaspoon

9. Turmeric powder - 1/2 teaspoon

10. Chilli powder - 1 teaspoon

11. Boiled eggs - 4

Recipe:

1. Heat the oil in a pan.

2. Add the cumin, fenugreek seeds, onions and green chillies. Saute for a few minutes.

3. Add the ginger garlic paste and tomatoes.

4. Once the tomatoes are mashed, add the turmeric and chilli powder.

5. Add some water and salt.

6. Keep stirring until it is the dish is thicker.

7. Finally, add the boiled eggs.

Happy cooking and eating.
