Here the school started a week ago for my kids. Getting busy now a days, so I am missing blogging too :(. The pepper masala looks colorful. Its hard to make the kids eat this healthy veggie, so I sneak them in Omelets.

True with school to begin a lot of pre planning has to be done, especially on the lunch box aspect. Went through the mayhem of all these last week. This is a very versatile dish with some very nice ingredients like coconut powder, fennel powder, amchoor etc. visually appetizing I love the flavours going on in this dish. Truly delicious.
