I was too lazy to do anything very ceremonial after the biriyani...wanted to vanish from kitchen soon...So made this quick mushroom chilli and some lightly spiced organic pasta...The day looks so dull and cloudy and I feel so morose...hw climate can change u'r moods!! I just feel like being silent for a while...So straight to the recipe without much banter!!


Orange Bell pepper-1/2 chopped
Green chilli-4-chopped
Tomato Sauce-1 1/2 tbsp
Red chilli sauce-1 tbsp
Soya sauce-1 tbsp
Onion-1 large- chopped
Garlic-25g(chopped thin)
Pepper powder-1 tsp
Salt-as reqd

Hi Shynee! What you've written in your profile section really cracked me up-'experiments on guinea pig called husband'Haha, couldn't stop laughing...
Great effort at that biryani, too many things were happening in my life around that time, so couldn't contribute to the parade, so reading all your entries was fun :)

And come on Cheer up, we cant let things like weather affect our mood can we? It's pouring cats and dogs each day in Bombay !
