Another Personal Triumph

Santosh Dawara has done it again, having taken time off from the other
mundane activities of the world and fished out recipes for Egg Biryani and
Masoor Dal, he successfully executed “Operation Fill Tummy”. The egg
biryani was wonderful and the masoor dal could do with a bit of improvement.

Now with a satisfied and smug smile he can head off and take an afternoon
nap. 🙂

Tomato Rice

Tomato rice is easy to make and goes well with Yoghurt. This is
how I managed to make it. Chop up an Onion, need not do
it fine. Also leep two tablespoons of Tomato Puree handy and
a cup of rice. Heat up 2 tablespoons oil in a frying pan. When
the oils just about hot enough (this is the part that I find tough to
judge) add the Onions. Stir the onions around in the oil till you
get a consistent Golden Brown. Onions are fried mostly in high
heat.

Then add the Puree after reducing the heat to the pan. Once
again stir it around, let it cook for another 2 minutes. Then add
the rice, mix it up to get good consistency and cook for another
two minutes.

Now you can either boil the rice in 2.5 cups of water till its done
or pressure cook it with much less water.

Less than 2 cups of water and 3 – 4 whistles in a small cooker
works for me, I am considering adding in salt before I pressure
cook to simply experiment. Since I made this the first time, I
prepped just a little. If I could just get it right now 🙂

My First Blog

It has been an extra ordinary day.
Then I did attend a lecture by Jeff Sonstein, “Java for Programming”. It so happend that I had
to take notes for that class. Thats how I ended it up there in the first place. I checked out his webpage and found Movable Type !! Voila an hour later my website is up and running. This is way better than having to type in the text within HTML, makes my job a lot easier. Thank you Jeff 🙂

Now all I gotta do is keep blogging and I won’t have any excuses not to. Man laziness IS the mother of innovation.
