|Can u see the butter melting!!!!|
My family is big on greens but somehow they disliked palak and dal getting all mushy until I discovered that I am mixing everything too much :).Now I cut the palak into bigger pieces ,leave the green chili and garlic whole without chopping ,onion is cubed and no tadka come on how easier can it get and guess what they just like to see everything separate when they scoop out .Yesterday as I was clicking pics for this post my daughty was finishing her homework and she kept interrupting me with questions.Finally I asked her, “Are u feeling hungry?” and she replied,”Can u please pass me that plate, that is making me hungry.” heee… heee…. I am sorry if the shot isn’t decent because all the actors on the plate got gobbled up :))) Seriously! she being such a picky eater I was kind of shocked !!
