I'm back to posting!

All's well, I'm happy to on with the blogging, I'll be visiting all your sites soon! Thanks so much for your kind comments and concerns!

Here is a great Lunch recipe for the weekend, a curried Spaghetti toss.....made simply with some tomatoes, onions and green peppers and some spices.....serve this with some Garlic bread, and you have a full meal at hand.

  • Here is the recipe:

2 fistfuls of Spaghetti- for each person, Salt,Olive oil - Cook the Spaghetti according to package directions, or take the easy way out, Like me, Use a pressure cooker...steam for 2 whistles, and it's done! Drain and set aside.

For the Spices and Tempering:

1 tbsp - Olive or any cooking oil

1 large onion - chopped

1 large green pepper - chopped, 1 large Jalapeno pepper- chopped

3 large tomatoes - chopped - you can also use Canned ones

1 tsp- Jeera (cumin) seeds

1 tsp- Dhania-Jeera Powder

Salt, A pinch of sugar to taste.

Heat some oil in a pan. Add the Cumin seeds, when they turn dark brown, add the onions and the peppers. Stir until they turn translucent. Now add the tomatoes. Stir for 5 minutes more. Add the cooked spaghetti now. Give it a gentle toss and add the spices. Stir until nicely coated, adjust seasonings and serve hot with some garlic bread. Enjoy!
