This is a quick recipe that can be easily made when you are in hurry and you have left over idli’s from previous night in your refrigerator. I am very fond of idli’s (steamed lentil and rice cake .. ūüôā ) . They are light to eat and yet very filling and nutritious.

Ingredients :

1. Idli’s

2. Carrot – sliced in julians

3. Bell Pepper (red / yellow / green ) – sliced .

4. Tomatoes

5. Onions – sliced

6. Green & Red chillies – split and sliced

7. Curry leaves

8. Coriander and Lemon for garnishing

Method :

All oil to pan . Once heated put in a few mustard seeds to crackle. Add onions and chillies and saute for half a minute. Add in rest of the vegetable. Add salt as per your taste, red chilli powder and lid the pan to cook for 2-3 mins. Add the idli’s (cut them in 4-6 piece each) and gently mix it all. Let it saute for about a minute or two. Garnish with coriander leaves and squeeze half a lemon in it.

Your dish is ready to eat. Wollaahh !!!

Evolve As A Woman

I was just wondering how meaningful my life has been till date.. How over the years I have evolved as a woman …

I was the second child of my parents .

We are 3 sisters and mom dad gave us the best upbringing and motivated us to be  independent and a responsible citizen.

My school days were awesome, loads of fun and play.. I was into sports and enoyed every bit of it…..

College was even more fun…. Studies, extra curricular activities¬†and fun with friends… those were awesome 4 years…¬†

Passed out from college and joined this IT Firm , made new friends and started a new phase of life where I was completely on my own, independent and ready to face the world.

After few years parents felt that it was age to look for a life partner and¬†I was married to the most wonderful person on the earth….. This was the second important phase of life.. To accept a new person in your life, understand him, work on your compatibility , love him , respect him , take care of him….¬†it all helped in evolving¬†more as a woman

Marriage teaches you a lot new things.. You learn to be patient , you learn to put your partner’s happiness and comforts before yours… and millions of other things…¬† (There can be a seperate post on what new things a female learn post marriage.. lolz¬†)

This is a point where I am today … I feel I have spent half my life … Now there are 3 more important phase that are yet to cme… Motherhood , Work At Home Mom and Old age…¬†


I have no clue how i will flair in them , but hopefully these will be as interesting as my life has been so far…….¬†¬†

Enjoy WomanHood !!!!!!!!
