Ok enough about bikes. There are flowers growing everywhere around my home. Above are the lovely bougainvillea ( I had to google the spelling and for the life of me I just cannot pronounce it ). On the left are my favourite gende ka phool. When I was a little girl I used to pluck out all the petals and eat leftover part which we called Gobhi because it looked like a little cauliflower. I wonder if kids still do that or are the parents much too careful these days. I remember plucking blades of grass and eating that too. I think my mother would be horrified if she knew or she might just laugh and remind me that my baby sister used to eat ants. Yeah she really did and I took them out of her mouth very often.
The bharta I made yesterday was such a success that Anshuman ate it again today. I thought I screwed it up because I didn't actually taste it. I hate baingan. I don't understand why someone would want to eat baingan but my husband loves it so I cooked it. I made stuffed capsicum and masala dal today. Everything turned out perfectly. Pushpita and Sohana had come over for dinner and later all of us went out for ice cream. When I told Sohana we're going out for ice cream pat came the question,"Today?"
