Chef's Special

I have donned a Chef's Cap these past few weeks. My wife Shobha is away in Boise, Idaho (USA) to be with our daughter who is expecting her second baby. I have taken over the mantle of home management. I have started experimenting with a few dishes at home to cater to my palate and tummy. The results are posted below: Not a bad effort I think :) What do you think ?
This has also been keeping me away from blogging.

Paneer Pulao

Lobia (black eyed peas) curry

Tomato Onion Uthappam

    1. KP: It is not just the cooking:) Time also spent in cleaning veggies, cutting & chopping, dish washing, clothes washing, ironing, vegetable & provisions purchases, cleaning up the kitchen. grinding for dosa/idli,boiling the milk, making coffee/tea....the list is endless. Add up all this and it does take up a lot of time. I am just a beginner. Not very efficient at Home management :)
