Rava Dosa / Sooji or Semolina Dosa




                          Rava Dosai served with 'Tiffin Sambhar' and 'Thengai Chutney'


Rava Dosai or Rava Dosa is a Tiffin ( I love the way the Tamil name it ) which I hadn't mastered so far. I go 'bumper' every time I try. I come out with under cooked, torn,  or rather overly done dosas and go bonkers.

Ah! here?
The perfect dosas!
Who makes them?
My ma in law's co-sis Uma Chithi! :)

Adding Some Life to Your Photograph - Exercises in Food Photography #5 by Aparna



I haven't tried shots of food someone holding for me, though I had been coming across lovely pictures of the same much around in blogosphere. Aparna's Photography lesson 5 finally inspired me to try the lovely theme of Adding some life to my Photograph!

My daughter was home for a couple of days for Ganesh Chathurthi when I thought of making her pose for the shots. We could have done it better but before I imported the pictures from the camera, she got back to her hostel.

Here are a few we managed to do...

Kothu Chapathi with Egg ~ stepwise pictorial




                                                                   
A blogger would know about the mid life bloggers' crisis.
One of my buddy talks about having a bunch of exotic recipes drafted, but reluctant to push out to blog just because she loses words for the introductory part.
Over the years we find ourselves improving in cooking skills, selection of recipes, photographic talents, earning readers...fame... but doesn't really apply when it comes to the 'writing intro part'.. it's monotonous.. stale..boring when it comes to me.

Easy Breezy Coconutty Pepper Chicken





The past few days had been eventful. A visit to my husband's native place, sick son and a cradling ceremony. Now that he has recuperated well, we sent him back to his hostel. Every moment spent with my in-laws was special. It makes me feel I am back home after my mom's home stay! Too much love, too much care, too much food and too much comfort...my in-laws made me and my sick son feel so comfortable that we miss them..just too much!
