My Recipe for Capsicum Curry

Motivation , to cook capsicum curry that is :

In retrospect I can say that for most of my life, I have had the good fortune of not having to worry about variety in my meals.But after eating like a sailor from the 15th century for the past week or so , eggs and Indian pickle has been my staple.Today, I had to cook something that had grown in the ground !

Now on to the Main topic of this Post :

1. One Capsicum( obviously :P )
2. One Onion (preferrably unspoiled and not 2 months old ... see the trick is one has to use them) if spoiled, steal room-mates onion.
3. One Tomato . If you have one well and good . If not once again resort to solution suggested in number 2. If that too is spoiled . Tough Luck ,you will have eat like me.Now point to be noted , tomatoes have a much shorter shelf life.
4. Indian spices


1. Chop Onions and Tomatoes(Oh , I forgot I didn't have any)
2. Heat Oil in pan and wait for it to heat... add all the Indian spices u have.
3. Add Onions. While the onions are cooking to a light brown,
4. Chop Capsicum . (To digress:Beware the Blunt side of the knife can cut deep into your index finger, unfortunately this is from today's experience. If this happens wash your cut under cold water and apply turmeric as a natural antiseptic or u can suck on your cut , I hear blood is quite the appetiser for Vampires)
5. Now back to Business, add Capsicum
6. Add salt and such other condiments to taste (andaaza se ... :P)
7. Flame to Medium .Cover pan an keep stirring periodically.

30 mins and a few cuts and bruises later you have Capsicum curry for 2 servings ...

PS: Much tempted to post a pic of the curry as well . But I dont wish to be scary ,you see my camera is not all that good :D

Bombay Rains ; New York Winds

It was a rainy evening; dark and damp like most evenings of the Mumbai monsoon.Relentless rain battering him on the patio of his parents apartment.He was speaking to her on the phone but the rains apparently messed up the cellular communication.It was his welcome back to India gathering at his parents home.

All he could hear was the sound of relentless rain screaming into the phone .As if she was far far away and screaming for him to come to her. His mother was calling for him from within, to meet the guests who had come to welcome him. He was straining to hear her voice over the phone.

But Bombay monsoons are the unconquered gods and he knew he had no hope for tonight.As he blew a kiss into the phone and turned to return inside, he heard her voice ; like she was right beside him. He turned to see her standing beside the rectangular wooden chair on the patio.Both drenched in the rain, as if she was sitting on it all this while.

She was standing now , looking soft and delicate; like a gracefully curved lightning bolt.She, in her dark maroon sari , on this dark wet night with the wind carrying her smell mingled the smell of damp wood. Rahul stood there mesmerized, as if waiting for her to say something.He knew she had come because he had wished for it with all of his heart. She stood there looking at him; looking at each other, as if they were having a conversation that no longer required phones or voices. Looking into her eyes which shone like pools of dark water.He leaned, to kiss her smiling lips, to welcome her to his welcome party . To celebrate the union of all his homes, to celebrate being whole. He reached across to hold her in his arms.

He opened his eyes to see his room in New York.It was a dream.


Life, is an attempt

Is Integrity selfish ?
