Re: Lunch!!!!!!

Lunch is usually leftovers from the night before, whatever my wife packs, blasted in the microwave for 5 minutes.

And an advice to charchans... my wife packed parathas and some rice and curry today... do not blast this mix for 5 minutes... the parathas turn all hard... not much fun, unless you happen to like burnt toast

And today does not seem to be my lucky day... just as I started to write this post, accidently flipped the spoon and got rice all over the carpet... would have post this 5 minutes earlier, but was picking rice... one by one, of the floor

This guy also came to the vegetable vendor, even though he did not have a bag / utensil in his hand. He asked the vendor, "kyon be, Gawar kitne mein diye ?". Vendor replied "Che rupaiye kilo saab". Guy wanted to show off. Said "Abe, hamaare yahaan gawaar gadhon ko khilaate hai, tu Che rupaiye maang rahaa hai!!!". Vendor replied and all the ladies were smiling among themselves while the guy walked away red-faced. "Saabji, aap bhi wahi shaamil ho jaayiye, mufat mein gawaar milenge."

j/k.




HA HA HA....

Smart Sabjiwaalaa.
Good answer to that "show-off" budhau.

Dhurru....

C'mon, Gimme a break.

Its not absolutely true. It is somewhat.

Guvaar is sold everywhere and almost all gujjus eat guvaar shaak. I gurantee you must have too. Ask your parents.

There are lots of gujju recipes for making guvaarsing "shaak" in our gujarat.

For example..

Guvaar-pumkin.
Guvaar in dahi tadka
Guvaar with sesame and garlic tadkaa.

It is true that guvaar was being used as cattle feed, but because in the past it was cheap and wholesome as a cattle feed for poors.

But when guvaar is fresh and komal it is widely used as vegatable. Its somewhat good in taste too (depending upon how you prepare).


The guvaar used for cattle feed is basically matured and hard to cook ones like that.

And thats how gujjus call guvaar as cattlefeed in slang or abuse.
But it is widely used as sabji.



BTW...

Google for it and you will see it more as vegatable than cattlefeed.

Depends on what part of Gujarat...people from Northern Gujarat (Banaskantha/Mehsana/Sabarkantha) look down upon Guvaar as cattle feed....let's put it this way...its not the favorite vegetable for people out there

As for recipes...there are recipes for everything out there...for example potato/onion/cauliflower/brinjal/radish/carrots etc are not cattlefeed but guvaar is...hope you get the point

When I was an undergrad in a certain part of Gujarat, I used to dine as a paying guest at a "mausi's" (no, not a madam)...she never cooked gavar...one gavar fan asked her why and she told that gavar was cattlefeed...and that idea stuck...I actually laughed my ass off thinking of the mausi having the turd dangling problem
HAHAHHAHAHA


well i had pav-bhaaji fo lunch today..burp..

Pehle AC ghumaake Hariyali Dosa khilaa, phir (.) period ke saath bataa hoon kitna weight hai.

Weight is ok yaar, I just have a big appetite.
When I sat to eat breakfast, Mom had to say "There is no more dosa batter / Shall I stop making more ?".
