Just like with some of you, the global gloom and lack of a camera had me feeling thorughly uninspired to blog. While tackling the first problem is beyond me, I have finally decided to take on the second and buy myself a new camera, so hopefully there should be lots of foodie action here soon. Meanwhile, the realization that in three months, I will be completing a year of blogging, has me scampering to clear my drafts folder to ensure that my blog's second year starts with all fresh stuff.
However, the real catalyst to get me going again is something I came to know through Soma's blog, a BloggerAid fundraiser, organised by three thinking bloggers, Val, Giz and Ivy, aimed at raising funds for the United Nation's World Food Program. This will be in the form of a cookbook, with recipes contributed from bloggers all over the world, people like you and me. Do learn more about this project here and also consider contributing your own recipe to this great cause.
My humble contribution will be my easy, peasy (sorry, couldn't resist!), but really tasty Tofu Matar Masala, which has converted many tofu haters. Pan fried Tofu is tossed in a spicy, tomato sambal with peas and onions, a fusion of Indian and Indonesian cooking styles.Since the rules require that the recipe be totally original and should not be posted on your blog, I cannot share it here.
I would like to thank all of you who checked on me, and apologize to those who were disapointed by lack of new posts. Will really try to be regular henceforth.
