That Repeat Meal That's Been A Lifesaver – Done I share a lot about myself on social media. My mood usually reflects on the food I cook. But looking at my feed, what most of you don't know is that in early December, I slipped, split my chin (needed 5 stitches) & fractured the left side of my jaw & rib. I was in pain & cooking for family as always was my therapy. I'm TOTALLY fine now – mostly because I got my nutrition through this really tasty extra mushy mixed veg sambar I was going through the spices in my fridge & found this homemade sambar powder that Nithya @kaapilicious had given me when we met over 6 months ago! It had an amazing aroma so I used it to make this I thoroughly washed & soaked an equal mix of channa dal/skinless split bengalgram & tuvar/arhar/skinless split pigeon peas for half an hour I pressure cooked the two dals/lentils along with mixed vegetables in salted water & turmeric powder for only 1 whistle. I removed the pressure & simmered along with tamarind pulp, jaggery, tomatoes, curry leaves, green chillies & Nithya's sambar powder I tempered coconut oil with mustard seeds, asafoetida, dried red chillies, garlic & onions. Once brown, I added red chilli powder, coriander powder, more sambar powder & dried fenugreek leaves /kasturi methi I added this tempering & raw curry leaves to the thick simmering lentils & vegetables. Mixed well & kept covered till I served with hot rice Looks are usually deceptive. Our lives are more often than not like this simple food. Social media may glam it up but the reality is that only simplicity can be comforting. No? Think about it

✨✨50K & a GIVEAWAY✨✨ A big thank you to all those following me here! It's taken me a very long time to get here having been on Instagram since ages. But apart from my cooking and writing, I rarely take anything social media too seriously or take steps to actually GROW my accounts. I must confess that over the last few months I have been implementing some learnings which seems to be working in reaching my posts to a wider audience. . To share my joy, I'm planning a sweet giveaway of some of the things I like – announcing it possibly later today or tomorrow. So keep that notification button turned on and take part. You don't want to miss it. . That was yesterday's breakfast for the son. 100% oat waffles topped with stewed apples, Maple syrup and a bit of chocolate almond spread (swipe to see close up) along with a strawbanana smoothie. This was his brekkie request and I was happy to oblige after all he had spent time and effort teaching me his latest learnings on the Ukulele?? . ✨To stay tuned to all my posts follow @saffrontrail✨
