Of home-cooked meals and family ..

Thanks Charu for a lovely meal!

Authentic home cooked Indian food ... aaah! It's a rare luxury since I moved to the United States. My own cooking has evolved to something far less traditional. An impromptu visit to my cousin's place this afternoon led to a lovely vegetarian meal (pictured above) ... !!

The Mixed Vegetable Subzi (cabbage, carrots and green beans) was fresh, crunchy, and just perfectly flavored with mustard seeds and green chilli peppers. Curried Black Eyed Peas, with tomatoes and onions and garam masala melted in my mouth. The Peas Pulao with fresh mint chutney tasted just like mom's. The Yellow Daal (lentils) was good enough to die for - warm and aromatic, flavored with cumin and fresh cilantro leaves. The pièce de résistance however was the fresh Whole Wheat Roti (also called Phulka)!!
Thanks Charu Sawhney for a lovely meal this afternoon (and the leftovers too!!) :-)
