Day 12 of Lockdown

I wasted my whole day. That’s it.

  • Juliet is about to realize that she loves Dawsey!
  • Ghee smeared rotis with dry channa masala for breakfast and lunch. Milk for dinner.

  • Movie of the day was Gnomeo & Juliet. But unlike Romeo & Juliet by William Shakespeare, this animation movie has happy ending.

  • Didn’t get a chance to write today. Was busy with some translation work.
  • Tea of the day was Turmeric Spiced Herbal Tea by Vahdam Teas. Unlike their Recover, this one is pleasant and my kind of a tea.

Recipe of dry channa masala: Soak Kabuli channa as much as you want overnight. Pressure cook it in the morning after draining the soaked water. Until the pressure of the cooker is released, grind onion, tomato, red chilli powder, coriander powder, a pinch of turmeric, clove, cinnamon and ginger-garlic paste together. Heat refined sunflower oil in a pan. Once heated, add cumin seeds, bay leaf and cardamom. Once you get the aroma of the cumin seeds, add the ground paste into the pan and let it cook until the raw smell of onion and tomato is gone. Then add the pressure cooked Kabuli channa. If you want semi gravy, retain the water. Otherwise, drain the water from cooked Kabuli channa and add to the pan. Add salt as per your taste preference and give it a good stir. Simmer, cover with a lid and let the flavours get mixed while cooking. After 5 minutes, remove the lid, stir again and it is ready to eat.
