Writing up the first sentence or the first paragraph here always takes time for me. that too after a break, it still gets worse. what to write here, whether to write about my son getting hurt on his tooth and kept me busy or to tell you all, how i have grown lazy in the past days! Yes my kid got hurt on his tooth and lips while he was playing running race downstairs. though now it seams to be a small wound, the boy could not chew or use his teeth for a week. so it was just baby food time! feeding spoon by spoon of liquids every hour. oh..it was a big relief for me, when he started to take food back! now all is well with him. this reminds me how i got my lips hurt in my childhood. It should have bothered my mom just as i bothered! so finally after few backspace and delete key efforts from me, here you finish reading my first paragraph of this post!
Mutta curry, i make this curry, when me or my hubby get cold. its because lots of pepper goes into this curry. this is a simple yet delicious dry egg curry. If you want to have a vegetarian version of this dish, you can make it with cauliflower or baby potatoes or with paneer. i even want to try this masala with cauliflower, i will try and post it soon here!
