Why Chole / Chickpea?
If you ask me why did I make chole mid- week, I will slyly tell you that I have run out of veggies in the refrigerator 😉😉😉 I goofed up in my estimates... yes that does happen sometimes with me.. nevertheless, chole to the rescue for lunch...paired them with pooris and onions...lemon too was missing today!!😞😞😞
Tell me what are you having for lunch today..while I dash to the vegetable vendor to replenish supplies...

The Gulabi Amrood...
I spent quite a lot of my childhood years in Lucknow, grew up in a fauji house with eight Mango and four guava trees and every year we relished their bounty...That is where the guava love started from...then there was this guava tree in the village that overlooked the pokhari / pond and spent endless hours sitting on one of it's branches and munching on the fruit..
From then to now Guavas have been a favorite..I was drooling when I saw one of @d.srujan 's insta story some days back..Infact last year @sonalzalkikar actually got me a guava instead of a cake to cut on my birthday and I couldn't be happier...
And today we have been teaching Little M colors and fruits in Hindi so GULABI AMROOD it is😋😋😋😋 Tag a amrood lover here and tell me what is your favorite fruit?
Have a super weekend everyone!!!
I am tagging @foodofthenation @the_vivacious_essence @spiceathon @sridutta_kinu

Happy Ganesh Chaturthi every one..this Pooja ki thali is again a representation of different cultures that we have been part of...there is something from the East, from the North and mostly from the West of India... Everything homemade with Little M except the Motichoor Ladoo on the thali...
For Lord Ganesha
In the centre are the Maharashtrian Ukadiche Modak stuffed with coconut and jaggery
Clockwise from the Diya you will find
⭐ Mawa Modak
⭐ Chuda Ghasa - A no flame Ganesh Chaturthi Prasad from Odisha made with poha, sugar/jaggery, coconut and pepper
⭐ Khirapaat - A maharashtrian Prasad with dry coconut, sugar and cardamom
⭐ Then there is Panchkhadya made with five 'kh'-kharik &khajur, khobra, khuskhus, khadi Shakkar and kishmish
⭐ The fruit for Ganesh
⭐ Coconut Ladoos
⭐ Along with the very North Indian Motichoor ka ladoo
Again, it is everything on the Pooja plate...hope Lord Ganesha brings you health, wealth and happiness...
From Little M, Mr.A and me

When in a hurry...make this JHATPAT
I have been busy all morning getting Ganpati ready..getting all the Puja samagri and organizing everything. Though we do not get Bappa home, we have a small puja at home..By the time I finished shaping the ladoos it was about lunch time...
Out came the green peas from the freezer, the pressure cooker from the kitchen shelf, potatoes were peeled hurriedly and quartered, onions were sliced, dancing came the rice...found some biryani masala in the fridge. The process was
😉 Sputter
😉 Dunk
😉 Season
😉 Close the lid
The Aloo Wala Peas Pulao...Done
