In home cooking ...

It's been about 10 days since I cooked and ate a decent meal at home. I've lost my appetite recently. Stopped running. And blogging, in case anyone was keeping track. Exhaustion is catching up. A hectic travel sked is on its way here. It'll be another few weeks of living out of a suitcase, forgetting toothbrushes everywhere I go and literally feeling my system go toxic with all the outside food.

So I'm glad to record that today, after almost 2 weeks, I cooked up a nice meal with rasam (tomato lentil soup of sorts) and cabbage and peas sabji (vegetable dish). The rasam had cilantro. (Baby V, are you listening?) And more tomato than tamarind juice (Mum threateningly wagged her finger in my face last time and went "Too much tamarind makes your bones brittle, use more tomato, not tamarind." as I shuddered from fear of falling apart any minute.) The sabji didn't have dhaniya and chilli powder. Too much lazy came, alas, to put all that.

But I feel content. Tummy wise anyway. :-)

My amma says too much tamarind will suck up your blood. I frequently imagine a doc types shoving a syringe into my arm and his eyes going wide as nothing came out.
Oh well.
