Paav Bhaji, Ice Cream, and a Thanksgiving..

A step-by-step photo tutorial on how to make paav-bhaaji....Not really.

Paav-bhaji: Original recipe by Nupur at One Hot Stove (and you can click here for the recipe). Only change I made is I added about 1/4 tsp of garam masala powder.
Chopped capsicum and mashed potato-cauliflower mix - the basics.
I sprinkle a bit of paav-bhaaji masala on the paav before placing on the tawa.
Eat :)

The ice cream


I would not call this a Thanksgiving dinner ever, but it was a happy dinner, and just made me realize, perhaps influenced by the many Thanksgiving posts I read today, to make my own I-am-thankful-for list.

I am thankful for:
  • Being healthy because I like to look after myself.
  • My job which I crib about all the time, but honestly, I am thankful I have a job to crib about :)
  • Having known what being "perfectly pampered" feels like and to have people who tell me they will support no matter what.
