|He Knows I am Going to the Office|
Had a productive day at the office, including attending the monthly staff meeting. I had intended to go to the bank on my lunch break, but I didn't take a lunch break as such (went in late and needed to make up the time) and ate at my desk. And I didn't feel like stopping at the bank on my way home. So, going to the bank will have to wait until tomorrow.
I felt tired when I came home. So, I had a cup of tea and rested. Watched some video clips on-line, listened to some songs, and read. One of my cousins called and we chatted for a bit and, of course, video chatted with my daughter.
For breakfast, today, I had a banana. Lunch was more macaroni and cheese, with half a large apple for dessert. Some raw cashews for afternoon snack.
For dinner, I made a version of "koththu roti" (sometimes spelled kottu roti, but the "t"s should be pronounced like the "th" in bath, not like the "t" in bat). It is made with flat bread, cut into strips, and stir fried with vegetables, eggs, and meat. It is usually made with gothamba roti, but I used the Armenian flat bread or lavash, my neighbor gave me, because I wanted to use it up and didn't want it to go to waste. One could also use flour tortillas.
First, I sauted some sliced onion, green chilies, minced garlic, and curry leaves. Most recipes also call for ginger and various other spices, but I didn't bother because I was going to add some chicken curry and my chicken curry has all the spices.
|Add Cooked Chicken|
I took a "short cut" and cut up some of my curried chicken and added to the sauted aromatics. One can add any kind of meat, or, make a vegetarian version, as well.
|Sliced Flat Bread|
While the chicken was sauteing, I rolled up the pieces of lavash and sliced them into thin strips and grated a carrot. Then, added the strips of flat bread, the grated carrot, the last of the broccoli, some of the chicken curry gravy, additional curry powder and a little chili powder and sauted everything until the vegetables were tender. I added a little salt at the end. The choice of vegetables to add to this dish includes cabbage, leeks, mushrooms, etc. Normally, a scrambled egg is also added to the dish, but I forgot to add it! Oh, well. It tasted quite good to me, even without the egg!
I served a portion for my dinner and there's enough leftover to take for my lunch, tomorrow.
