I will be out next week, so no blogging or blog-hopping again for another week. Are you thinking i'm nuts for coming out of a break to say i'll be taking another break? :-) But, before i go into the silent mode again, i'll post a yummy, quick and easy recipe..

Red chillies - 3
Tamarind paste - 1/2 spoon
Turmeric powder - a pinch or two
Mustard seeds, Urad daal, Channa daal, Curry leaves and Hing for seasoning
