Today I was supposed to go out and shop with a blogger friend but all plans were washed off in the heavy rains. Since I had not planned anything majorly for today as I was surely looking forward to my shopping, I had some time in hand, so I decided to use it wisely.
Recently, during my visit to one of the finest bakeries here I came across a bread roll which had a seekh kebab filling. Looking at it, I had mentally made a note to try this one at home, the roll was named California. Since this is my take on that roll I decided to name it California Rolls.
Now patience was surely not my virtue today as I was very hungry and I definitely had no intention of making seekh kebabs (those who are regular readers here will surely understand my penchant for making the seekh kebabs) as that would have taken a long time and I was already hungry so decided to make quick vegetable cigars and then coil the bread rope around them.

Today I’m posting an extremely delicious and finger-licking curry which my family thoroughly enjoyed. If you enjoy restaurant style food, this gravy is a must try. S loved it to the core and demanded more of it. Sadly I could not provide him more as whenever I try something new I make a small batch and if we like it I make more again. Surely the next time I make this I will make it more.
The gravy is delicately flavoured and is a winner in itself. I used rajma/kidney beans to bring about some innovation and I must admit that the beans go very well with this gravy. It’s an excellent side dish for a north Indian party.

I am happy with myself as it seems that finally my grey cells have started functioning normally. Kindly do not believe that I was insane all these days, LOL, it is just that I was not able to innovate anything interesting and I kept on telling myself that things will improve and that my brain will come back to normalcy and to my delight it did happen!
I am extremely elated that people loved my last post on Crispy Salsa Cubes. Moving in the same genre of fusion cooking, today. I’m posting a spicy ‘chatakhdaar’ pizza with a desi touch. Pizza, as we all know is an Italian preparation and has now become extremely popular with every one especially, the kids. Today being children’s day, I thought of treating the kid with this fusion Pizza. He loved it to the core and carried it in his lunch box too but he was terrified with the thought that his friends would not let him eat it…. I convinced him that he would get his share as all mom’s would have sent a delicious lunch box today.

Thanks for all the wishes that you wrote for me, I’m feeling much better now.
Today I’m posting a very quick to make starter which is extremely tasty and was loved by my family. The original recipe is from a cookery show and I had managed to pen down the recipe. In the original recipe once the basic starter was made many more sauces and chips were added and I personally found it messy to be served especially when one believes that the starters are finger foods and should be less messy. I have improvised the preparation in my way and the end product, of which I was very sceptical, turned out really good, so I thought of sharing it with every one.

Days are passing by and we are kind of getting used to the city but still deep in my heart I long to go back and I keep praying almighty to help us on that.
This week has been terrible for me, all of a sudden I picked up a severe nerve pain in my right hand making me difficult to hold things, so cooking took a back seat. S was kind enough to take me out for dinner and we enjoyed eating Chinese Food at ‘The Cascade’.
