Recipe Time: Dahi wale Aloo/Yoghurt Potatoes

Since I am a foodie, I am going to start sharing some recipes too on the blog. Things that I cook in my kitchen :)

This recipe that I am sharing, is a pass me down recipe from my mother-in-law and is a dish PS loves :) Has also become one of my favourite dishes after marriage. It’s simple and super easy to cook. Takes only about 10 to 15 minutes and is delicious!


Ingredients:
• Sour Yogurt(whisked) - 1 bowl
• Potatoes(boiled) - 3-4 medium
• Salt to taste
• Red chilli powder - 1/2 teaspoon
• Turmeric powder - 1/4 teaspoon
• Oil - 2 teaspoons
• Fenugreek seeds - 1 teaspoon

Method:
• Peel and cut the boiled potatoes into about 8 pieces each
• Heat oil in a wok and add the fenugreek seeds and fry for about 10 seconds. Then add the potato pieces and fry for about a minute.
• Add turmeric powder and chilli powder and continue to fry for about 2 minutes.
• Add the whisked yoghurt to this and mix well. Keep stirring for about 2 to 3 minutes till the first boil comes.
• After that add upto 1/2 cup of water depending on how thick you want the gravy. Let it cook for a few minutes and then after the next boil add salt.
• Reduce the heat and let it boil one or two times more till the gravy is well cooked. Stir the gravy a few times to avoid clumping of the yoghurt.
• Turn off the heat and garnish if you want to with coriander
• Serve hot with paratha or steam rice.

Let me know if you tried the recipe and liked it! :)

I also have a food related discovery to share with you. Like me, in case you have no time to cook or don’t wanna head out to eat sometimes, then you have www.Foodpanda.in that can come to your rescue. Foodpanda has online menus from the staggering selection of delivery restaurants around you. Simply enter your post code and search for cuisine type, restaurants or even price range. The restaurant index also includes address and delivery hours. The website operates by delivering food from a wide range of restaurants to either homes and/or offices in 14 cities in India, namely Delhi, Gurgaon, Bangalore, Mumbai, Pune, etc. I have tried it a few times and I quite like it. Infact in my last experience, just at the time of payment my net crashed and they instantly called me to check whether I was having some issues and wanted to go ahead with the order or not.  It also is updated with the food festivals and offers happening around your city. Ordering food has become easy, fast and definitely fun and the mascot panda is so cute!

Neon Accents

Not always in the mood to rock a single shade vividly hued neon piece because you want to go the minimal way, but still want to wear neon? Then you can do exactly what I did :) This lovely multi neon coloured top with ABCD written in different shades of neon from Persunmall.com was the answer to the problem of how to do neon in a minimal way without using too much of one solid colour of neon.

What to Wear in Vegas

A reader wrote in to me last week that she is travelling to Las Vegas for her holidays, and wanted me to suggest 'What to Wear' in the evenings while she is there, particularly when she heads to the casino. First of all I must say she is a damn lucky girl because Vegas is still a hot spot on my TO TRAVEL list and secondly, USA is one of the best places to shop :) So Reader Girl, have a rocking time!

Two things that go hand in hand in Vegas are casinos and fashion appropriate for it. Fashion, that too the glamourous and glitzy kind. So I have put together 3 looks, just that kind for her – An evening to night look which can take her from the famous Vegas strip to the casino, a look just for the casino, and a night look that can take her from the casino to the club!

Look 1: An evening to night look which can take her from the famous Vegas strip to the casino

A lively place calls for bright coloured clothes. So a pair of yellow pants with a bright pink top highlighted by a colourful necklace, turquoise peeptoes and a multi-coloured clutch is great to take you from an sight seeing fun evening at the Vegas strip to the casino. If the weather gets a little chilly, then this lovely sequinned blazer can keep you warm.

Look 2 – A look for the casino

For your casino time, bet on a relaxed kaftan style asymmetrical dress, a pair of reflecting golden heels, a colour blocked geometric clutch, a couple of metallic bangles and simple crystal drop earrings. You want the ensemble to be comfortable as you don’t know how long your betting night is going to last :)

Look 3: A night look that can take her from the casino to the club

This look is perfect for spending some time at the casino and then hitting the club. A sexy bodycon doesn't need much to work its magic. Accentuate it with these gorgeous heels and a sequinned clutch with just simple diamond studs to complete the look. A jacket can come handy if the October chill bothers you.

So that does it girl! You are set to rock Vegas in these looks! :)

Twisted Tresses!






Hi-Low Top - 99labels.com
Purple Pants - Spring Break
Floral Print Shoes - Linking Road
Golden Bag - Romwe - I'm loving this new bag of mine!

Sometimes you don't need a haircut to change the look of your hair, sometimes all it takes is a new hairstyle to look different. This is what I tried when Rhea from FUSS invited us for a Monsoon Party at the new JCB salon at Khar. The stylists twisted my hair on both sides from the front and pinned it at the back  and then took all of it and pinned it on the side and voila I had a new look :) 

This is one style I am gonna try again. And when I get to do it with the company of these beauties, it is even more fun!
