Beet Coconut curry

Reluctantly I got out of bed, washed up and opened my physics books,  Thermodynamics yaaawn... ! Maybe it will not be so cold (read sleepy), if I have the comforter on my feet, hoody on my head. Nice !!! Feels so good, dramatically Ditu unveils my hoody..., " you better finish that page and move on" sheepishly, I read on, with an obvious lack of interest..! She helps me with some study tips and my mom hands me a glass of hot milk, I gulp down the milk and get back to where I had left. My mind wanders, I get a nudge...she's watching me like a hawk...grr! How I wish I was the older one. She walks out of our room and I rummage through her stuff, I dont even know what am looking for, the paper reads "Industrial psychology and organizational behavior", how boring, I put her papers down and get back to mine. She walks in and looks straight at me,  “stop touching my stuff” , she must have an invisible set of eyes.

 Its almost six in the evening,  Ditu is not back yet, its getting dark. My eyes our glued to the gate. The thermodynamics test was not all that bad, after all. Finally, it's Friday, I can sleep in... But wait where is my sister? Mum, is not worried,  “she is at Mitu's place", but it's getting dark. I get my bike out and ride with urgency, she walks along with me, not a word. " Don't be out so late, or ask Mitu's brother to drop you...this road is unsafe". She nods in agreement. It never crossed my mind that she is six years older than me and she's capable of managing herself. She never protested, it was an unwritten code, if she was late, I would go pick her. She has never said no to me, no matter how unreasonable I get ( hope I have not). My first lessons of diplomacy, of patience was from her. That's another post that am still a novice in training. When I try and make things complicated, she makes things easy. ( it's the degree in psychology that's talking ;)) She will never say no, but have it her way...I have no idea how, but she does it with perfect grace...we are so different yet we have so much in common. Thats my childhood in a nutshell.

Am glad for sisters, glad some are super creative ;). And glad mine can design ;) Check out my logo  (on my photographs), what do you guys think? Thanks guys,  for your help, and taking the time to pick one for me. Really appreciate it.

4 small beet 
1 can of coconut milk 
1 small onion 

1/2 tsp cinnamon powder 
1 tsp red chili powder (go less or more according to taste)
1 tsp curry leaf powder or a few fresh curry leaves 
1/2 tsp mustard 
1 tsp vinegar 
1/2 inch ginger (grated) OR 1 pod of garlic 
salt to taste 

Shop the beet into small chunks. Marinate them in cinnamon, chili and curry leaf powder for 30 min. Finely chop onions. 

In a pan heat ghee and add mustard as soon at it splatters, add onions and roast till golden born, add ginger, beet and salt, let it cook, ( don’t overcook the beet) add coconut milk and bring to simmer. Add the vinegar before serving. Serve with plain white rice. 

When I made the rice, I added a few cloves, to give it a nice fragrant taste, you can try that. This recipe was shared with me by my sister, thanks to her friend who shared it with her. I believe it is an Indonesian curry.

  10. Lovely post Simi. Sisters are BFFs :-) Logo is very very cool. Lucky to have a talented sister.
    Curry is looking striking with that white background -- tempting me to try some very soon, even though no one at home really like beets :-)
    btw did you make that background urself? Love that paper mache effect. Any chance of a tutorial?

    1. Pavani thanks! Yes, Made the background myself, just painted some newspaper and glued it on the board, after it had dried. It’s really easy, if you run into trouble let me know, will do a post on it.
