More home-cooked goodness from Vasai

7-8 August 2012
I stayed two nights with my boss' family so that meant more home-cooked goodness from Sunila, Raju's wife. She actually got 'mad' at me for not letting her pack the dosa for my lunch when she found out that I had mung dal and thums up for lunch!

So, at night, I feasted on chapatti and rice, with dal, bombil fry (fish) ad a sabzi which I think is bell pepper. The onion and tomato salad is back, with added cucumber!

All-Indian work snack

I know I should be eating healthier but I just can't help it. I am getting used to the different snacks available here and I must say, I am already getting addicted!

If you know me or if we have worked together before, you won't find it Asa surprise that I always end up munching on something while I am working. It's like second nature already. Sometimes, my brain just don't function as properly as I want it if I am not eating something.

Of course, I can always say that my brain uses a lot of energy while thinking so I have every right to eat while doing so. But then ago, we both know I'm just trying to justify my eating habits. Hahaha. Oh well, whatever works!
mung dal, khatta mitha mix, tikha mitha mix, sweet and salty biscuit
and of course, thums up!

Home-cooked idli dosa breakfast goodnes

As part of my website development work, I am currently staying with my boss' family here in Vasai since the 2.5hr (one-way) commute us just impossible.

So, since last night, I have been having home-cooked food courtesy of my boss' wife. Last night's meal was Bhindi (okra/lady finger) sabzi and fal with rice and chapatti. There's also pickled mango (sour ad spicy) and tomato onion salad (tasted like home).

And for this morning, we had idli dosa with green chutney. It's a south Indian dish. Honestly speaking, I am not yet that familiar or accustomed to the taste of idli dosa and chutney. Imagine a puto-looking bread that tastes like it was fermented or something. The green chutney is made of coconut plus other spices, the only one I can identify is garlic. I am not very fond of idli but it was the first time I finished it! So, you know what that meant right?!
