Lunch in 8 minutes

Posted by Picasa

Hola! GDPB returns to a food picture an incredible 5 months after its runaway Blogway hit "How to cook chicken biriyani." This time, we offer you the simple yet delectable dish avalakki, Bengaluru style. Soak poha in water for 5 minutes. In the meanwhile, dice 2 onions and as many chillies as you can handle. Heat oil. Throw in some mustard seeds, curry leaves. Watch out for oil spurting all over you. Fry the onion till it's golden brown, then the chillies for a bit. Add turmeric for colour. Drain the poha, add it to the pan. Mix with the stuff, adding in salt and lemon juice fresh from the lemon. We are rrready. If your kitchen is better stocked than mine, you could add separately fried groundnuts and coriander for garnish. Bon appetit!

Games People Play

Posted by Picasa

That's a book by Eric Berne on the games people play with each other. Worth a read, if you are into psychology and stuff. However, if you like less sinister games more, check out these here pictures - ah but for small mercies, like the rain this evening.

Spencer's @ DT Mega City. Not a pretty picture, no? But then one doesn't like making a spectacle of oneself waiting for the right moment.

Metro de Delhi

Mi primera vez en el metro de Delhi. Its above-ground nature (at least the short stretch that I travelled on) reminded me of the Singapore MRT while the people (fellow citizens) reminded me of the Mumbai locals. I found the use of reusable plastic tokens instead of paper tickets rather cool.

My Wish List, Summer '07: air conditioning, a refrigerator, a water purifier, sunglasses, a chauffeured car and a butler(?) to hold an umbrella over the cabeza.

Well, I was back at the EU FF on Monday and enjoyed the movies as well, but got burnt and beat by the heat, the distance and the public transport (inadequacy thereof). So R&R today and indefinite plans to go back sometime.

My Pick of the Day: The Rain Falls on Our Souls or Dázd padá na nase duse from Slovakia. The little girl was a little precocious but cute, the guy on the run likeable, and the story quite touching. I guess Persona Non Grata was more accomplished and all but then you connect with what you connect.
