Leftover Pakodas and I Hate...


A great tip from a friend which turned out to be an excellent chaat/snack for us with some leftover pakodas. After a potluck the other day, we were all wondering what to do with a whole tray of leftover pakodas. One of my friends gave us all this idea.

This is what she said : Just slice some onions very finely, spread them over the pakodas, sprinkle lemon juice and some chaat masala and eat them like a snack. I tried her tip and must say it tasted really nice. Just make sure you use a generous amount of lemon juice and the chaat masala.

Also, Purnima had tagged me for this ' I hate- MeMe' quite sometime back. She probably must have forgotten about it too :D. Sorry Purnima, took me this long.

Just putting down randomly, these are a few of my Hates..

1. I hate to be so far-away from my parents and family and get to see them only once in a while.

2. I hate to see how lonely my son feels inspite of friends being there and having so many toys. I feel that he is missing out on the simple pleasures of life that we got to enjoy.

3. I hate it when I lose patience with my son, and have to be hard with him. Doesn't make me or him or anyone around a happy person :).

4. I hate Migraines. Makes me a handicap when I have one and can ruin many days in a row.

5. Hate it even more when I have to pop pills to get rid of the headaches.

6. I hate it when I am brave and hold up on the big things that upset me and then break down at the slightest thing and make a fool of myself.

7. I hate to see what poverty and hunger does to people.

8. I hate making decisions coz I'm really bad at them and fickle minded too, so you see, can't make up my mind sometimes even about the littlest things in life :).

9. I hate cereal for breakfast. I have tried many many kinds but nothing seems to go down my throat.

10. I just hate hate hate Good-byes. Yes, hate them that much. However much I prepare myself, just can't deal with them.

Very nice blog, i love looking up recipes here.

You could try looking up http://www.nti-tss.com/ for a possible cure for your migrane headaches.

If you want someone in your area look up http://www.headacheprevention.com/index.php?option=com_sobi2&sobi2Task=search&Itemid=26
and search your zipcode.

I am in Mumbai but i could maybe help find you a dentist who could help you if you tell me your location by putting up a query on my dental email list.

Regards,

Gopal
