One day I was preparing for "Methi Pulav". Inspired by all our friends, I felt like trying a veg kolam. Immediately, I arranged on my kitchen slab, what all I had - onion, Methi, tomato, carrot, skin of carrot and stem of pumpkin (which I had in kitchen).Hope u like it.

Rangoli: Veggy-Kolam

Why are you surprised latA ma'am? I am a decent cook. I learnt many lessons from my beautiful wife including cooking. Cooking is nothing but the practical art of culinary chemistry.

Smile Mohanaji, there is no doubt about you being an excellent cook. I had assumed that scientists wouldn't find the time to cook much since they are mostly busy experimenting with different chemical concoctions that have a greater impact on the general population (as opposed to cooking different recipes for the family). The benefits are far greater in the lab in comparison to the culinary chemistry at home. :0
And besides, about two years ago or so, you had mentioned here in this site that you only ate once a day anyway. Smile

Actually cooking is quite relaxing in the sense one's attention is entirely concentrated on the cooking and there is no time to think about other things lest the final product should not become edible. Any way, must go home as the base is closed for the first time this winter due to snow Smile Dress rehearsals for the future probably!

Regards! - mOhana
