Sometimes, just sometimes it is a good idea to eat vegetarian meals. Not always, as both Amit and I will not be able to survive 😛 . Both our lunch and dinner were completely niramish (Bengali for vegetarian). Lunch was rice, moong dal (yellow split beans cooked with cashew nuts and cumin seeds), fried and cut bitter gourd, pickles, and cabbage with potatoes, peas, and cilantro. Moong dal is offered to gods during festivals, like theobrama (food for the gods). Dinner was cabbage, again, with paratha whose dough I made with flour, yogurt, and oil. Amit fried them and they were amazingly soft and delicious. Yum!
We started on the third season of The Tudors.
