Hope everyone had a lovely diwali celebrations. As for me, this year its a limited Diwali event. We are just recovering from our jetlag and being put up in a tiny service apartment with a tiny kitchenette (very true to its name), never feel like celebrating. Yep! your guess is right. We are going to begin yet another chapter in our life. We just made a transatlantic move from New Jersey to Munich! Even though am used to relocating often and know very well that this is going continue for sometime, heart and body do not agree with it at all. New Place, new people, the need to fit in and above all, the anxiety and nervousness to start all over again!! As the mind is racing to catch up with these things, the initial days are now spent recuperating from loneliness and disinterest.
So when the heart is not set in its place, even enjoying a cup of tea is getting difficult. I am so glad I chose this theme. Being in a temporary accommodation with a kitchenette, it helps me get through this transition phase. I need not make elaborate meals and worry about doing the dishes in this scaled-down area. All I need is my precious cooker that has endured me for the past five years! Ill save it for the next post - to vaunt about my prestige! To start off, we have a mildly spiced rice that is enhanced naturally by the flavours of the fresh sweet carrots and the greens. A very healthy one pot meal that can be prepared in no time.
