Today -June 26th, 2012
My Last post - Today = Approx 2.5 months(75 days).
I hope someone keeps me accountable.
Anyways, it all looks like I've lost my blogging mojo these days. I need to get recharged for the very same reason. If I had a genie asking me for 3 wishes right now I would ask for - creativity , creativity and allergy relief. Ok! let me not go further about the third point.
But the first 2, yes.
I guess everyone goes through these low period times, when the brain just slows down, takes a nap, refuses to wake up. I am exactly in that phase for sometime now. So what do I do now?
Should I just swim across the Caribbean and go to Venezuela?
Should I just buy a puppy or a cat ?
Should I just gorge on a dozen donuts from Dunkin? Should I go on a shopping spree? (Oops! Hubby would not love that! Will ya??)
Should I paint?
Should I steal my neighbor's TV for the fun of it?
OK I guess I'll stick to the 5th one, 'coz the 4th one might just irritate my hubby, all others would be so easy to do, it wouldn't do anything to recharge my brain, would it? ;))
That's about all the hoopla about loosing my mojo.
But for now you can take a note of this 'so insanely addicting that I wanna make it again and again' tomato herb chutney.
Tomatoes - 6
Almost a handful each of Basil, Cilantro and Mint (If basil isn't available, worry not, use the other 2, It still should taste wackily good !)
Salt to taste
sugar- 1 tbsp (or more)
turmeric - a pinch
To Roast and Grind:
Coriander seeds - 1.5 tbsp
Sesame seeds - 2 tbsp
Chana Dal - 3 tsp
Saunf - 2 tsp
Red Chillies - 4 to 5
Oil , mustard, hing, curry leaves
Wash the tomatoes ,herbs, line it on a plate neatly. The plate should be a white one, with a navy blue rim. And then click it, just like I did.
Skip the above step. (except washing y'all!)
