The Chili

It doesn't need to be foodball season for this to happen.

Fry garlic and onions oil. Add mince (I usually use mutton, but traditionally it would be beef) and brown. Stir in salt, cumin powder and paprika. Throw in a decent pile of chopped tomatoes and simmer. Add boiled beans and thicken. I like to add chopped coriander in the end. Garnish with cheese.

I prefer my chili with garlic toast and salad.

The Simple Saturday

Saturdays in our household are vegetarian days. I like to keep Saturday lunches simple. This is one of my favorites.

Baingan ka bharta

Take a nice fat eggplant and burn it directly on gas till the skin looks peelable. Take off the heat and peel. Mash the insides.

Put a little oil in a pan and heat. Sauté very little garlic and ginger, chopped onions and chilli. Throw in the eggplant mush. Toss in salt, turmeric, cumin and coriander powder. Add tomatoes and cook. Garnish with coriander and serve with hot rotis!
