My simple and lazy Aloo ki Sabji aka Dry Potato Curry has become a big demand in my family and friend’s circle. Everyone either wants the recipe or wants me to make it for them. My neighbor, too loves my potato sabji and has asked me to post the recipe on my blog for her. So, this is for my dear, V and you sister-in-law.
Here’s what you need:
- 4-5 medium/large potatoes – washed, peeled and cut into 1 inch cubes
- 1 tsp jeera (cumin)
- 1 tsp saunf (fennel)
- 1 tsp methre (fenugreek seeds)
- 1/2 tsp ajwain (carom seeds)
- 1 tsp haldi (turmeric powder)
- 1 tsp salt
- 2-3 tsp curry powder
- 1 tsp garam masala
- 1 tsp dhaniya powder (coriander powder)
- 1-2 tbsp oil
- 1-2 tsp dried fenugreek leafs
Here’s what you do:
Heat oil in large wok over medium heat. Add methre and let sizzle until dark brown, add ajwain, saunf and jeera until nicely browned. Add potatoes and let cook for 2-3 minutes. Add salt, curry powder, garam masala, dhaniya powder, haldi and mix well so that all the potatoes are nicely coated with the spices. Let cook for 2-3 minutes, then rub dried fenugreek leafs between hands, so to completely crush them and add to potatoes. Mix all ingredients well, reduce heat to the lowest and cover. Let steam for 10-12 minutes or until potatoes are completely cooked. Enjoy with roti and yogurt!
Quick re-cap of what Inhibitif is:
- Targets hair follicles to slow down growth and density of unwanted hair
- Minimizes the need for hair removal for weeks
- Reduces long-term hair removal costs
- Is great for all skin types and hair colors
My final verdict of whether it actually works or not? Yes, it does work!
Here are my results:
Application: easy 5/5
Smell: No smell at all!
After application results: Skin feels soft and looks normal
Price: $29.99 4/5 – Inexpensive when considering the costs of threading or waxing
Overall rating: 5/5
Would I buy it again: Indefinitely. Actually, I will begin using it on my legs next week.
Would I recommend it to my friends: Absolutely
Overall results: Only waxing once every 2-3 weeks before hair becomes noticeable
So, as you can see, I had great success with the face serum. Since I’ve been using Inhibitif, my face seems clearer, skin smoother and color more even. I’ve gotten compliments on how great my face looks lately. I don’t know what it is about the serum, but it’s left my face looking fantastic, plus the hair is much less visible. I can’t believe how much money I have saved over the last few weeks on waxing. You definitely have to try it!
Next, I’ll be starting the serum for my legs and arms. Can’t wait to be almost hair-free for the summer!
Happy 16 Month Birthday, pumpkin-pie!
You’ve been sick for a good portion of the month. We found out you have pneumonia and an ear infection. We’ve visited the hospital paediatric ward many times this month and will probably do so for the next month or so too. But don’t you worry honey pie, mommy and daddy are not gonna let anything bad happen to you. We’re going to be with you through it all and will never leave your side. We’ll fight every battle together and conquer all the miseries of this world. I promise. We’ll be by your side forever and ever. Then you’ll get better and everything will go back to normal and you’ll come out stronger than when this all started.
Ok forget that for now. Let’s talk about Valentine’s Day! You enjoyed your treat from mommy and daddy and got yourself extremely sticky and messy. But you really loved playing with the little stuffed puppy we got you. Plus, aunty from next door bought you a beautiful red teddy bear, you love playing with that too. You hold him in your arms and try to put him to sleep like mommy puts you to sleep. It’s absolutely adorable.
It was also daddy’s birthday a couple of days ago. Mommy threw daddy a surprise party and you had lots of fun there too. Plus, your uncle Harsh took lots of beautiful photos of you and daddy. Then you were off to bed and we spent the evening and night chatting, laughing and trying not to wake you up. It was quite the party!
Anyway love, that’s all for this month. Mommy’s praying that you get better quickly and life goes back to normal. We pray each day for you to be healthy and safe and always smiling. We love you darling. Happy 16 Month Birthday again. Xoxo
D’s birthday was a big success! He loved the personal bar caddie I built and stocked for him. He enjoyed his evening with his two closest friends and family and lunch today was great, too.
Here’s the before and after of his bar caddie.
A few words for my best friend on his special day:
I love you more than you will ever know. You are one of the best things that has happened to me and because of you, we have a beautiful angel in our lives. You’ve made our lives worth the struggles, worth the battles, and worth anything and everything the world throws at us. My daughter is blessed to have such a loving father in her life. As she grows, she’ll realize how lucky she is, as am I. I count my blessings every time you smile at me. I thank the world and stars for bringing you to me. You are everything a girl could ask for in a best friend, in a husband, in a father for her child and in her partner in crime. Thank you for being you. Know that Ni and I love you ever so much and we will spend our lives cherishing and loving you. Happy Birthday, darling. Ni and I love you dearly.
Hello My Lovelies,
I’m sorry for being MIA for the past couple of days. It’s been a tough week with Ni being sick. She has pneumonia and we’ve been trying to manage her illness, work, and hospital appointments; which has become quite exhausting. Hopefully, today’s follow-up appointment will bring results of the medication helping the pneumonia disappear (fingers crossed). Emotionally, I am so drained. Every time I hold her in my arms, I just want to cry because I feel hopeless that she’s ill and keeps having to go through this stuff. Physically, the sleep deprivation is really taking its toll on my face, skin and body and as much as I try to sleep early, it just doesn’t happen. If I do manage to get to be bed by 10ish, I just end up lying there unable to turn off my brain.
Plus, it’s D’s birthday tomorrow and I’ve been busy trying to plan a small get together for him. Our financial situation is a bit tight this month (but we’re up-to-date on all of our bills…woo-hoo), so we’re not doing anything big and fancy. However, I am building him a small bar cart. Actually, I’ve repainted and re-purposed my old microwave caddy and turned it into a bar cart for him. He’s a bartender, he loves alcohol (no he’s not an alcoholic) but he does love fine liquors and fancy drinks. I couldn’t figure any better gift than this for him. Now he’ll have his own “man-space” in the house. I’m fully stocking it for him with all the tools he needs to make a great cocktail and to enjoy the finest of whiskeys and rums. I’ve even stocked up his liquor collection with spiced rum, vodka, tequila, Jack Daniel’s, breezers and cocktail mixers. Hopefully, he’ll love it. A couple of his friends are coming over for drinks and dinner and then tomorrow all of us have taken the day off, D just doesn’t know he has the day off. So, we’ll be going for lunch somewhere nice and then later to the new Ripley’s Aquarium that D’s been so excited to visit it.
I’m really hoping Ni’s medical test results come out clear of illness and infection and D enjoys his birthday surprise. I’ll update once I know the outcome of both.
Please send your blessings for my little Ni and please pray that she gets better soon.
Xoxo ~ Tamana
