Good Friday paased, Holi passed & then Easter paased without much ado. There were three holidays, n we could have gone on a mini-vacation but for my hubby’s Exams approaching soon. I didnt wanna make him any guilty too, but then he was good n did spend quite a good amount of time with me, taking me out for “JODHA AKBAR” which we’ve wanted to watch since its release. I had other preferences, but chose to give into something mutually acceptable. That’s how adjusting I am….
I dont regret watching the movie, except for all the bloodshed depicted. Hritik Roshan was a treat to the eyes. Looking as majestic as ever. I dont feel anybody else could have done justice to the role of Akbar in the movie. Aishwarya wasnt bad either, with minimal makeup, the mindblowing jewellery & gorgeous costumes she did look beautiful. The sets were superb. It is surely worth a watch on the big screen. The small one wont do justice to the entire effect.
Now not wanting you all to wander away, I am going to post something very close to my heart……this is absolutely my version, n I love every bit of it.
250 gms – prawns
2 big onions – sliced finely
1/2 inch pc – ginger
4 flakes – garlic
1 big tomato – finely chopped
1 tsp – red chilli powder
1/2 tspn – turmeric / haldi powder
1/4 tspn – garam masala powder
2 stems of curry leaves
2 tbspn – maggie hot and sweet sauce
1 green chilli – chopped fine

In a non-stick pan heat some oil.
Add the grated ginger & garlic
Add the onions, n fry till pinkish brown
Add the tomatoes & fry till oil separates
Now add the curry leaves, turmeric, chillies & garam masala
Mix well to blend
Add the washed prawns, put in some salt
Cover & cook till prawns are tender & well cooked.
Add the sauce, the chopped green chilies & more salt

I generally eat mine with some bread, but they will go well with plain white rice…The sauce gives a wonderful tang to it which I soo love very much.
