I had great time playing scrabble on Saturday. I picked up a new trick of "balancing rack".

I'm gonna surprise my mom with this infinity scarf that I'm crocheting. I again learned the basic stitches from my mom when she was visiting me last year. Infinity or loop or Mobius (for the geeky) scarf is a circular scarf with a twist and it's very IN to wear it OUT.

So I'm armed with Chef Sanjeev Kapoor's cookbooks and tried this dish - gobi musallam. It's a dish that requires cooking cauliflower in two (major) steps. It turned out pretty well and I liked it more the next day when I was no longer tired of cooking and pre-cooking shopping.
I was fed up of feeding on the simpler gobi recipes which magically work well only for mom. There's something inexplicably good about mom's food that our narcissist self can never deny. I guess it must have to do with getting hooked to it while young. Familiarity breeds fondness?
Here's a picture of while cooking and final dish.
Notice my failed attempt at tandoori roti using a kadai and electric stove.
