God knows what I had so much to talk about!! I dont believe I wrote so much! 150 posts for me is a big milestone. I never thought I'd get there actually.

This blog has given me so much. So many words, so many emotions, so many new friends. So many touched my life, I hope I touched a few as well. A simple thank you to my small circle of readers, will not even suffice, for having bought out so many words through encouragement, critisism and even a pat on the back.

Thank You.

Paneer Fried Rice

Dear All. Long time no see no hear!

Am back with a recipie that we tried over the weekend. The husband bought some paneer and intelligently placed it in the freezer. It became really difficult to chop it. Had to heat a pan of hot water and place the panner in a bowl and put it in the pan for it to become soft.

Basmati Rice, Jheera, Green Chilli, Finely chopped Onions, ginger paste, garam masala, pepper powder, elaichi powder, corriander leaves.

Step 1 :Soak the Basmati rice for about 15-20 mins and then cook it. Keep aside.

Step 2: In a frying pan, heat oil, add some jheera and green chillis. Once the jheera turns dark brown, add the chopped onions. Saute well. Once it turns golden brown, add the chopped paneer and saute for a couple of mins. Add salt, pepper powder, garam masala powder and ginger paste. Mix well and on low flame for 2-3mins.

Step 3:Add the boiled rice and mix. Remember not to saute it too much, becomes gooey otherwise.

Step 4:Sprinkle finely chopped coriander leaves on top and serve

Catching up.

What am I upto these days?

-Planning to spend (loads of) money decorating my living space in an (desperate) attempt to bring some colour and light into my home.
-Cooking. The pasta I made tonight was too good.
-More cleaning.
-While at it, I realized, that I have loads of cute earrings now. (Never cared for stuff like that before. One diamond stuff and I used to be with it for it’s all different. One fake one each day.) And that too neatly kept in Balaji's Tonido Plug box. He won’t be very pleased to know his Tonido's cover has some 50 odd really cute and really fake earrings :D
-Now that the rant of my earrings is over, let’s move to other things?
-I keep typing em for me. Making weird weird typos these days. (After I published this post, i edited "typing". I had earlier typed it as tying. bah!)
-Shoot out maha maha enthu e-mails to buddies about a certain hyperlink and 'forget' to attach the link, leaving everybody confused and getting confused as to why everybody is so confused. Catch my point? :-)
-The whole world is sick. My Daddy, amma, sis, husband, sister-in-law, her two very cute and very adorable kids, her father-in-law and so on. The news is...I am NOT sick. All thanks to my new (very tech-savvy Apple i-Phone loving) Homeo Doc. He also gives excellent book recommendations and some gyan each time we visit him. This is one doc whom I like and take him and his medicines very seriously. I even hold my nose and swallow the SeaCod tablets. For my health, Thanks Doc.
-I got a membership with JustBooks. Too god dammed awesome.
-I cycle regularly, atleast to return and get more books. My Juliet is a dream! :D :D

By the day, the list to be thankful to the husband is increasing.

Scary? Spooky?

How about......just plain lucky?
