Back in the US of A and settling in quickly & quite nicely, I must add. This time around has been a lot easier on me, though it is a new part of the country for us. The only thing I still need to work on is the turn signals while driving - I keep switching the wipers on instead! :) Enjoying the large, open spaces and the modest traffic here, especially after the ever-increasing congestion of Bangalore. But Bangalore is Bangalore - missing it and all that it represents for me :(
Here's a palak bhajiya recipe from my drafts, a quick tea time snack.
A handful big spinach leaves, cleaned & wiped dry
Oil for deep frying
For the batter:
1/2 cup besan
1 tsp rice flour
1 tsp red chili powder
1 tsp jeera powder
1 tsp grated ginger
1 tsp warm oil
a pinch each of heeng and haldi
salt to taste
water for mixing
Mix the batter ingredients together to form a slightly thick, lump-free batter.
Dip each spinach leaf one by one in this batter and deep fry in hot oil until crispy brown.
