Had a decent Italian lunch on North Beach and even managed to catch "The A-Team" in action before we headed home. The best part of the exercise was discovering how sportive Gutloo was throughout the day enjoying every bit of the day's activities and the movie. We came back to a nice cool curd rice dinner and went to bed all exhausted. I couldn't help flashing a smug smile at my cold symptoms!
And for a new recipe after a long time,here is a low carb version of the usual Aloo Methi. Its a very simple concoction, takes 10 mins to make and is very wholesome to eat with Rotis, Bread or Rice.
|1 bunch Methi Leaves||1 tsp Jeera||Oil|
|1 Medium Ghia||2-3 Green Chillies||Salt|
|1 pinch Turmeric||Sugar|
|1 pinch Hing|
|1 tbsp Lemon Juice|
Peel the skin and dice the Ghia into small cubes.
Finely chop the Methi leaves.
Heat 1 tbsp oil in a kadhai and splutter the Jeera until dark.
Add the slit green chillies and saute on low for 1/2 a minute.
Add the Ghia, salt to taste, turmeric and hing and saute for about 5 minutes on medium heat.
Add the methi leaves when the ghia is half cooked and continue cooking on medium until the ghia is translucent and the methi wilts and cooks.
Garnish with a dash of lemon juice, sprinkle a little sugar and serve hot.
I concocted this combination for Preeti's Green Gourmet event. Follow the link to see a wonderful compilation of some very innovative green recipes!
