Weekend Cooking

I've decided to start a new post section for Weekend Cooking. I usually try to cook a complete meal on Friday nights and Saturdays. The rest of the days it usually ends up being curry and roti, after a long day at work. Here is my first plate...



I made..
1. White Rice
2. Mango Dal (not pictured)
3. Simple Potato Curry (see below for the recipe)
4. Tomato Chutney (bought it in India)
5. Tomato Rasam
6. Curd/Yogurt (not pictured)
7. Papad (not pictured)

These can, of course, also be made on the week days, but I usually don't have the time or energy to make them :)

For the simple Potato Curry

INGREDIENTS

2 medium Potatoes - finely cubed
Turmeric
Salt
Red Chilli Powder
Oil

TADKA

Mustard Seeds
Jeera
Channa Dal
Urid Dal
Hing

PROCEDURE

Optional: Microwave the chopped potatoes for about 3 to 4 minutes in a microwave safe bowl, this will help decrease the cooking time.
At the same time, heat some oil in a cooking pan and add the tadka ingredients. Now add in the cooked potato pieces, a pinch of turmeric, salt and red chilli powder. Fry the pieces until they are a little brown and take it off heat. Ready to serve.

Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
I too am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips and hints for novice blog writers? I'd certainly appreciate it.
