Summer, summer, where the hell are yooooou? Last year I got only cold and rain, this spring I’m getting cold and rain, I WANT THE SUUUUUN!! I wanna use my sandals and my pretty tank tops and tan a bit ;_;
I don’t even know what to cook, one day I’m making ice cream because it’s june and I want to eat fucking ice cream, OK? The next day I’m making soup because it’s raining cats and dogs -_- One day you have to wear boots and the next it’s sandals… We’re basically living in between, I’m tired of it! Well, some would say “that’s what spring is” … I don’t wanna hear it!
Some time ago I bought all the necessaire to organise some cool picnics, from disposable cute glasses to disposable camping griddles, I even got a lot of sangria spice mix. But of course since it’s always bad weather I still couldn’t use any of that. I’ll take advantage of this time to think about what to cook for said picnics 🙂 Any ideas?
As you can see, I have also cute summer themed tablecloths… Aw well.
This recipe comes from Indian cuisine, and it’s the first time I can get an Indian recipe just right! I always seem to use not enough spices or something like that. But this time, OOOH this time it’s GOOD!! It’s a veggie dish, meant to eat with basmati white rice. I will tell you the truth: I actually ate it just by itself, but without the rice it is a bit heavy on the seasoning 🙂
