The Love For Food

Food is something we all cherish. It is not just something that we humans need to live but we Indians actually consider food as our love. There are thousands of dishes in our country and they all vary from place to place. Every state has a different kind of food culture. In all of that we all have our favourite dishes which we could eat as many times as possible. We Indians are actually known for our food. We like the masala and lots of spices in them.

One of the main meals consist of Rice. It is our comfort food. When you can’t think of something else to cook, just cook rice. We know that rice will be fine for every occasion. Now, adding on to the loveliness of rice, pour a ladle full of rajma over it and you have your dinner ready. Adding on spoonfuls of curd to the holy mixture is even more heavenly. Every Indian surely has a memory associated with this dish. Be it their mother’s love or just something that reminds them of home.   It is mostly served at lunch or dinner in most of the houses as we have a tradition of a heavy meal at dinner. It never mattered that we were gaining weight or something. Even when I was dieting, I never went for burgers or pizzas on my cheat days.

This comfort food brings back so many memories for me too, that I have made throughout my life. Rajma rice is loved by each and every person in my family, not one person can say no to it and obviously not me.  Memories were not all we had that I would relate to this dish. I personally loved rice with anything, be it curry or chick peas but when you collaborate my two favourite dishes; rajma and rice, you get a bomb dish that will just make your taste buds go into a frenzy.


The beauty of the dish is that every household in India has its own recipe. The basic cooking might be the same but every plate of it would be different. The difference is something to be appreciated. Some add green chillies to it, some like it all full of garlic and some prefer it just plain like it should be. Every homemaker tries to add her own innovation to it. My mother added lots of tomatoes to it and that tangy flavour with tons of red chilli made me go haywire.  I am sure everyone loves their favourite dish which is why we abuse the groceries deals when we see our favourite groceries on discount but you can’t possibly compare them with this.


This is the beauty of Indian food, you don’t just eat food, and you live with it. You live every second and every memory with it. That is how much we are attached to it and I take pride in Rajma rice being my favourite food.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
