Recipe Exchange

I succumbed when I saw the words - 20 new recipes, new ideas and all the promises int he recipe exchange email from my fiend Kirti. This is a chronicle of what the chain mail yielded.There are no pictures in this blog..just some recipes (without precise measurements either), you will have to use your imaginations a little. For measuring you will have to use 'Kai alathe' as my grandma used to say - that just means eyeball it.

Of course, since Kirti started off this chain of events, I asked her to send me her recipe first.

Simplest cabbage potato sabji

K says,"Simplest curry you can think of: goes well with rotis or plain white rice or just by itself"

1) 1 teaspoon of canola or olive oil
2) 1/2 teaspoon of cumin seeds
3) 1 teaspoon of chilli powder
4) 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder
5) cube size small potatoes
6) salt to taste
7) roast potatoes for a while...when cooked, throw in a pack of cole slaw.

How many potatoes, what kind- you ask? 
The what kind answer is easy: whatever you have on hand.
 How much? Well, you need to decide on your cabbage to potato ratio: more cabbage then if you have a 12 oz. pack of Cole slaw- you will want to use about a cup of cubed potatoes. It will be fine either way. 

Now if you wanted a further shortcut... nuke the potatoes in the microwave. While they are cooking, continue browsing other delicious looking blogs that have pictures.
