Week 48/Day 332 - Tomb of the Sultans


If you are visiting Hyderabad for the first time, then there would most probably be 'A Visit to Golconda Fort & Qutub Shahi Tombs' on your must-do-list. These are a set of seven tombs where the Sultans of Golkonda (founding rulers of Hyderabad) lay buried. In their hay days, with the beautifully intricate Persian designs, these were adorned by  huge chandeliers and velvet canopies on silver poles and a place for entertainment mostly for the poor.

It is amazing how they withstood the test of time and I wish, the tourism dept would take a little more care of these historic monuments.

All great deeds and all great thoughts have a ridiculous beginning. Great works are often born on a street corner or in a restaurant's revolving door. ~ Albert Camus.

Week 46/Day 320 - Dosa Love


I am a great fan of instant dosas as they are quick & easy to make with no fermentation process.

My Recipe: Mix in some whole wheat flour, semolina, rice flour with sour buttermilk + grated ginger + salt + curry leaves.. Let it sit on the kitchen counter top for 30 mins. (meanwhile, I brush my teeth and do tiny chores). When hungry, on a hot tava pan, pour a laddle full of batter, cook on low heat (for few mins) and then crank up the heat for crispness. .Eat. :-)

Week 45/Day 310 - Purple Flower Love


"I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order." ~ John Burroughs

The theme for Week 45 will be "Flowers in our apartment complex". I see so many of them during my morning walks that it inspired me to dedicate a whole week to photograph them.

I hope you all will like them, as much I do - every single day.

Week 44/Day 305 - Roasting Veggies


..there is nothing better to pep up than roasting veggies in olive oil on a cold, gloomy evening. Blend them into a soup using home-made vegetable stock, salt and pepper.

With some toasted bread on the side, it is one perfect, comforting dinner! Isn't it.
