I was at the very end of my blogging wits towards the end of last year. The influx of ideas did not work with the torrent of workload. Overall, it started to pile up when my health started getting in the way and at that point, I decided to take a short break and reevaluate perspectives. The re-evaluation was predominantly towards what makes us happy. As we were going through this journey, one of the foremost thoughts was…
Why do we bloggers blog?
We share because of the passion in the little niches we carve in the food world and not so much about the likes. We collaborate, communicate and celebrate each other as individuals who stand up to put forth a bit of creativity. Many of us are not blogging because we are bored… We, blog because it motivates us. I am sure many bloggers will nod their heads too as they read this. At this point, let me break that huge myth that it is a million-dollar lottery. It is hard work, learning evolving technological advances day by day, researching and sharing, timeline upkeep, the search of bettering oneself and overall just seeing someone smile, when they make the recipe; a tag when they post a travel destination they loved to share; that one comment that we get from you all…makes it worthwhile. Just at that point, I received a beautiful comment on the post- Basale Gassi
So back to the comment,
It was a simple honest review that she loved the recipe and I promised to add some more of the ones using the same ingredient Malabar spinach. So here we are with another one.
The addition of greens to protein-rich beans is so common in Indian cuisine. Sooka Kala channa, ( spicy chickpea) is a much-loved recipe during Durga puja ( Navarathri). All I did was pep it up the gentle news of spinach. This no onion no garlic preparation goes best with rotis as a side with a thin khadi. Yummy. It can be a perfect warm chickpea salad or an evening snack as well. This is the beauty of simple home cooking. No frills, nourishing and just what good food is all about… wholesomeness. Here is another one with chickpeas- a salad.
As a humble request, do let us know if you try this recipe and your own tips for the same. Catch up with us on Instagram or FB and don’t be shy, drop in a Hi!!
Surely we will love it. Signing off 2019 year and see you more regularly in 2020 new year with renewed excitement.
