Its late night and I am preparing for the final big MCA project viva. This viva is the last thing hopefully I have to do and my MCA would be complete. I will be called a post graduate when I receive the degree yay! But fingers crossed and hope everything goes out well tomorrow because this one is not going to be easy. Making the project was challenge and going for viva in this season when outside temperature is down to 12 deg in day time is another challenge. I don’t know if I will be shivering of fear or cold tomorrow.
Update (6th Feb): Got the highest marks
Yesterday I was thinking of making fried potatoes with dip and ended up making this unique dish. I don’t know how I started putting this all together randomly selecting the ingredients but end result was awesome. As you can see in the photo only that much was left for taking photograph. Enough talking and here is the recipe:
What you need:
- 6 medium sized potatoes
- 5 – 6 spinach leaves
- 3 – 4 mint leaves
- 2 fresh lemon leaves
- 150ml fresh cream
- cheese spread – 2 spoon
- ginger paste – 1 tea spoon
- tomato ketchup – 1 tablespoon
- chilli sauce – 3 tea spoon
- chat masala
- lemon juice – 2 tea spoon
- honey – 2 tea spoon
- salt to taste
How to make it:
Half boil the potatoes. I just kept them for 3 minutes in microwave and they were good enough. Now peel them and cut in cubes. Heat oil and fry these until golden brown and keep it aside.
In a grinder put cream, cheese, mint leaves, spinach leaves and lemon leaves, salt and make a smooth paste. Heat little oil and put ginger paste, tomato sauce and chilli sauce. Now fry it for sometime and add the paste we made above and fry till oil separates.
Now add friend potatoes and sprinkle chat masala and mix. Add lemon juice and honey as well and mix. Dish is ready for serving!
Recently I bought a new digital camera for taking even better quality photos for my blog. I did not go for expensive SLR because I am not a photographer and don’t want to insult a SLR camera by just using it in auto mode all time and taking shots that even a cheap point and shoot can take. Portability was also a reason to buy something compact. Settled for Canon SX150 IS after some research and it turned out an awesome choice. Look at the photo of moon I took today. When I first tried in auto mode it was too bright but then going in manual mode and lowering the white balance setting I was able to take a good shot.
We recently shifted to our new home and life is totally out of sync here. No internet, no cable TV and no proper electricity too. Slowly I got everything in order and amongst first thing was to get an internet connection. Since there was no wired connection possible (I favor wired internet connection than wireless) here, I applied for the WiMax and got it installed in 2 days. A DTH was in list too for watching some of my favorite programs on Infotainment channels.
When I wake up in the morning I am totally confused as where the door is and in which place I am sleeping. I was so much used to my older place that I have to realize every morning that I am in a new place.
Apart from these small problems, I am enjoying my new home a lot! We got an organic farm too which is keeping my dad busy all day. For me, making small changes and fixing stuff in house and shopping etc is taking all the time.
