Can I, Cant’ I, Should I, Shouldn’t I…After a long thought, I am landing my first step into the cooking blogosphere because it needs some determination and regularity in posting the stuffs. I am interested in viewing other cook blogs but never thought of posting my own stuffs but after seeing people running for marathon races here in midst of their busy schedules, I too got interested to run along with them. Here’s my first entry. Hope I will improve the presentation and photography skills in the forthcoming stuffs.

Capscium – One big size

Tomato – 2 medium size

Onion – One medium size

Cumin seeds – 1 tbp

Garam Masala – 1 tbp

Coriander powder – 1 tbp

Cumin powder – 1 tbp

Red Chilly Powder – 1-2 tbp

Turmeric Powder – 1/4 tbp

Curry Leaves – few
