The past few days were like hot summer. It drizzled this morning with the temperature cooling down quite a bit. I was sitting by the bedroom window after Nehal left for school, sipping hot ginger flavored tea, watching the flowers sway to the drizzle and listening to Bhim Sen Joshi’s classical music. Beautiful and rejuvenating! I sat there not wanting to move for a good half hour doing nothing but watch the drizzle. But trust the telephone not to ring and its back to the daily grind. 🙂
On the kitchen front, its all about french beans and not hot pakodas or roasted corn cob (those monsoon food cravings!) French beans in my kitchen are used for Chinese cooking or an occasional vegetable pulao or upma. Though I like to cook beans in combination with potatoes or carrots for added flavor, today I decided on a beans stir fry with roasted ground nut powder.
