    Pooja in the morning at the temple, followed by “peth pooja” at my favorite Madras Cafe! Menu in plain Inglis: three different kinds of rice, sambhar, rasam, a different take on Punjabi kadhi which was absolutely delicious, dosas, idlis, green beans, a veg curry, onion pakoras, a kind of Punjabi choley (oddly enough), and two desserts: a kind of squash halwa and a kheer with vermicelli. Gorged manically and am ready for a nap! Happy Ganesh Chaturthi!

    What the *%^&? I am definitely definitely coming. Just keep the oil to a minimum when you cook. And I am allergic to kasa-kasa.

    I am going to be extremely nice to Rads from now on.

    SK – hehe, some days I go all out. Prasadam’s always yummy ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Baliga – That’s so sad! It was Saturday, Vinyaka Chaturthi, and you’re in good old Chennai. Why weren’t you off in the 1st place?!

    Maverick – hehe, the idea is that you enjoyed. Thats all that matters ๐Ÿ™‚

    Giri – yes, I make one every year. This time Ganesha came out like he was on a diet, ran out of clay to make his tummy larger.

    OK – *rubbing hands in glee* now I can up the price! ;-D

    Terri – uh-uh, what happened, not that Onion bagels aren’t good food, I like bagels of any sort.. but really?

    A muser – Desi restaurants pull out all stops on special days, and in so many ways, that’s just perfect! :))

    tdna – Did you miss the memo where I claimed I was Durga Ma, complete with 5 pairs of hands? I also borrowed my neighbor’s and my friend’s hands and together we each cooked up a storm.

    We all have our priorities right?
