Trip to dehradun… A trip worth taking


A trip is not just about the destination…I personally feel it is what you absorb in the trip to and from the place of travel… And where you live there…
Sameer was the case when I traveled to dehradun… but first class & this was my trip..

You can walk or you could run,

You could go straight or enjoy every turn,
You could fly to a place or just take a train,

What ever way you choose.. Just make sure to keep a memory of it in ure brain,

Meet people and just say a hi,

You don’t need to think much, 

Won’t make much friends being shy,

Travel heavy or travel light,

Just make sure that you travel right.

Stayed at Hotel Ashrey and that was nice… Fed a hunger of mine that no one else could suffice… It gave a blast from the past and made me anxious..didn’t serve me food but to my eyes it was delicious…

A blast from the past,

So much and all soo vast,

A past collector in a box you will reside,

How can you not stay here.. I leave it for you to decide… 
Happy travelling.

About Sunday’s & Quick Easy Breakfasts

IMG_7336
Onion Parantha A Parantha is a versatile Indian bread which is made by rolling out small portions of dough and then cooking on a hot plate/griddle. While it is primarily made out of whole wheat flour,other flours such as gram,refined,etc can be added. Parantha’s can either be stuffed or plain and can have a variety of fillings such as cottage cheese,potato,or even chicken and mutton. They can either be griddle cooked or deep fried and can be served with a huge number of accompaniments like curd,pickle ,butter,etc.

Sunday mornings are supposed to be fun,not energetic but relaxed and definitely worth doing what you love to do the most. For me today it was just to have a simple onion parantha with some pickle.

In a hot summer weather nothing can cool you down and prepare you hot the scorching heat than what good a onion can do.WAAIITTT!! … I’m not telling you to eat a raw onion…that’s just bad..

Onion Parantha

1 large onion chopped
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup gram flour or besan

1/4 cup refined flour

2-3 gms cmin seeds

salt,red chilli powder and turmeric to taste

2-3 green chillies chopped(optional)

Method:

  1. Roast cumin seeds and make a powder.
  2. Saute onions with the spices and then add to the flour.
  3. Add all the remaining ingredients and make a dough.
  4. Make small roundels and roll with a rolling pin dusting whole wheat flour to prevent it from sticking.Roll till about 2-3 mm thick.
  5. Take a pan and keep it on a low flame and griddle the parantha on it.
  6. Brush some butter/ghee on top and cook both sides.
  7. Serve with pickle/curd.

 

Well that was the recipe … hope if you haven’t tried it already …you do and share the same…

Thanks.
