Announcing MEC : Breezy Breakfasts



Srivalli’s Microwave Easy Cooking stops at Bombay Foodie this month. The choice of theme was easy. If you are anything like me, hitting the snooze button on the alarm every morning, you would know how precious those extra minutes of sleep are. Leaving very little time for that most important meal of the day : breakfast. I love to hear any tips and tricks that help me save time making breakfasts on these mornings. And what better way than some quick and easy microwave recipes.

So get your best breakfast recipes out, make them in the microwave (you can use food processor etc. for grinding, but no stove top cooking please) and send them to MEC : Breezy Breakfasts.

Here are the rules:

1. Cook any breakfast recipe in the microwave and do a post on it on your blog between today and 30 June 2009.

2. Add a link to the event announcement on Srivalli's blog and this announcement. Do use the logo if you choose to.

3. Multiple entries are welcome. Recipes submitted to other events are also accepted.

4. Recipes from archives are allowed provided you do a new post on it.

5. Send me an email at bombayfoodie(at)gmail(dot)com with the following details:

Subject: MEC:Breezy Breakfasts
Your Name
Name of the Dish
Your Post url
A picture of the dish

4. If you are a non-blogger, you can mail me all the details and I will gladly include it in the roundup.

5. This event accepts both vegetarian and non-vegetarian entries.

Okay, the announcement is over. And I am nervous. Incredibly. This is the first event I am hosting. You won't let me down, will you?

Tales of A Female Nomad

This month, our book club goes on a nomadic tour. We traveled with Rita Golden Gelman, a writer who sold everything she owned after the shock of a divorce and became a nomad. Not a tourist, because Rita stays away from everything that a tourist does and instead, tries to live the lives of people she visits.

From Mexico to Israel to Galapago Islands, Rita goes the way least traveled, always preferring to stay as a boarder with natives. And sometimes, going to places not even locals will go, places so secluded yet beautiful that Rita's description takes your breath away, urges you to become a nomad yourself.

Yet even nomads sometimes find their roots. Rita found hers in Bali where she spent eight years. Starting as a boarder with a prince, she eventually became a part of the family. I instantly knew I wanted to cook something Indonesian. I picked Nasi Goreng, the Indonesian fried rice.



There are as many recipes for Nasi Goreng as there are cooks. Some use tomatoes, others tamarind.…

Mystery Fruit

This only happened a few times every year, just when the rainy season kicked in. A street hawker will come by, straw basket on head. He will yell "kaul chapni" and I will run out to buy a bundle of these. Stuck together like flowers, they looked like a bouquet. Every hole contains a little fruit. You break out the package, peel the tiny fruit that pops out and eat it. Done slowly, it can take you an hour to eat an head. Or did, when I was about 12 years old.

That was the last time I saw this fruit. I've never seen it again, didn't even know what it was called or where it came from. Three weeks back, Vikram Doctor wrote about a store in Khar that sells Sindhi foods. He described this fruit and I knew it came from my vivid childhood memories. And finally, I knew we were talking about lotus fruit.

Now talk about coincidences. Last weekend, I was passing by a lane in Bandra and for the first time in many, many years I saw the straw basket filled with my mytery fruit. It…

Announcing AWED : Britain

Before I ate my first Italian wood fired pizza, before I went to that swanky Japanese sushi bar for the first time, or the neighborhood Chinese joint, the first non-Indian cuisine I encountered was British. Not real food, mind you, but the tempting, oh so delicious descriptions in my favorite novels. From Enid Blyton to Jane Austen to P.G. Wodehouse, every favorite character in every favorite novel seems to have food on their mind.

Yes, British food gets ridiculed a lot. But forget their main course dishes for now, and think of the full English breakfast and the elegant afternoon teas. Then try imagining the world without cucumber sandwiches or potato chips and you will realize you can't do without British food.

Which is why when I saw that DK was looking for hosts for her monthly event AWED (A Worldly Epicurean's Delight) and there has never been a British AWED, I promptly signed up.



The rules are simple really:

Make any vegetarian or vegan British dish (eggs are allowed in A…
