Today was one of these days I wanted to devote to myself.. All were out, The household quite I was to have lunch by myself. Yes I am in those days totally, shamelessly selfish. I make one special thing just for myself. I wanted to mind my p’s today. So, there was pyjamas , pillows and more p S to follow. Watching a movie (totally by myself without having any disturbance is bliss) “The angry Indian goddess”- I missed the munch.
Pausing the movie for a while, I rummaged the cupboard for some.. Popcorn. Alas! there was none!!!!
The floating “Idea” cloud
But there was peanuts, and a big jar of mango pickle. Now, thats not quite fun to dip each peanut in the pickle to eat. Quite a daunting task. So there came the giant lightbulb right above my head ( picturise it please).
As the idea cloud floated in took out a mixing bowl and gave the peanuts a rub all over with the spicy masala of the home made south Indian style mango pickle. The oil from the pickle good enough to coat all over the peanuts and stick up the masala. Cranking up the heat on the oven and set to roast the peanut till crisp.
Currently, enjoying the warm tangy peanuts with the perfect spicy, tangy and engrossing movie. Now it’s your turn.
