For the final day of bookmarked dishes, I decided to record a dish that was liked a lot and cooked a couple of times. Yet we didn't remember what all went in, even though it's the simplest recipe. When Amma asked again about the details, I thought I should record it for later use. So excuse the barely-there picture. I was without my gears and clicked with whatever was handy. Even for the first time, this simple stir saute will lend itself. Amma said it was very tasty with rotis, this time we tried as a side for the rice too. I ate it more like a salad before beginning the meal. So the choice is all yours!
With this, we winding up the BM#58 Edition. I am all so excited for December to happen. What with Bakeathon etc to happen, though not even one post is ready! Let's see how things go on!
