It’s nearing end Jan and finally we winter-starved Bombayites are finally feeling some cool. Afternoons are still hot. The tiled flooring does turn cold though. The cold water in the wash-basin gives me a little jolt as I sleepily open it early in the morning, reminding me that – Hey girl, enjoy this while it lasts.
I love all spices. Especially so, at this time of the year, when our body yearns for it. I’ve gone all out with my spices in this recipe, dressed up the benign cauliflower in flavours it didn’t know existed. It’s like turning an ice maiden Aishwarya Rai into a hot sizzling Mallika Sherawat! If you don’t know who these babes are, don’t worry. I’m sure you got the idea though. The peanuts were added on second thoughts, to make the gravy a little milder and creamier without adding any dairy cream. It turned out good. Real good. In fact, the day I made this, DH had an unusually long day at work. I for once didn’t complain as I dug into the whole darn bowl myself. Yeah! That good. Try out and you’ll know I’m sticking by my new year resolutions 😀
And hey friends, I haven’t forgotten about the WBB 8 round up. I just got some respite from work and I wasn’t in the mood for some more serious work like battling with blogger to do a round up. It’ll come up soon with a new theme as well.
