Royal Wedding & Chow Mein

My cousin (Meetu D) made the following request on my previous post
Tanvi, I have been thinking of you all week. As you know, the royal wedding is happening in London, and it's the same city that you love so much! How about if we pretend that Her Majesty has ordered you to attend the royal nuptials and partake of the reception serving quail eggs and truffle crudites. What would you wear to meet Will and Kate? Please post some pictures!

Since I have spring in my step I was instantly attracted to this yellow gown. Also, what I have gathered from my secret sources (Hi Sherin!) is that, it is, in fact a glorious spring (borderline summer) in London this year. So this is what I would wear to the Royal Wedding, had I been invited. What would you wear?  

Now some Food for Thought, ... and then some real food [:P] -

I am not going to start with why I started this blog and all the drama behind it. I have already narrated it! If you missed it, too bad! Only kidding, if you want you can read it here

No matter how lonely or alone I feel sometimes, but that feeling definitely doesn't last for long. As crazy and clichéd it might sound but the blog makes me feel connected to so many people. Everyone stops by, leaves their positive energy filled with compliments and concern (even if it might not always be earnest, but I am not gonna dwell on that fact for now :P). Meghna's comment on my previous post changed the course of my Monday, which made me realize that you never know how you might affect someone's thoughts or day!?! It is really an enigma that as individuals we have that kind of power ... to make or break someone's day! Don't know about ya'll, but I for one am loving the sound of this power. I think I am gonna hang on to it ... and pass is forward ... Thanks, Meghna!

Now, time for some Indian Style Chow Mein

1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon of Tomato Paste (optional)
2 Teaspoons of White Wine Vinegar
2 Teaspoons of Soy Sauce
2 Serrano Peppers (chillies) chopped
2 Cups of Noddles
2 Cups of Shredded Cabbage
1/2 Bell Pepper chopped
1/2 Small Onion finely chopped
1 Small Tomato chopped
1/3 Cups of Peas
Pinch of salt

1. Boil the cup of peas, drain the water and keep aside.
2. Boil the noodles, and keep aside 
3. Sautée onions, tomato and serrano peppers in olive oil
4. Add tomato paste and continue to sautée
5. Add peas, chillies, bell peppers and a pinch of salt and continue to sautée 
6. Make sure you don't over cook the vegetables else they get too soft
7. Add Cabbage in the end and 
8. In less than a minute add the noodles and mix well

In India we have our own version of the Chow Mein. It tastes nothing like what an authentic Chinese noodles might taste, but we sure love it! Everyone has their own version and recipe too. I am sure the Chinese would feel the same way about their cuisine being transformed in India, as Mexicans feel about their cuisine being transformed in the rest of the world [as Tex-Mex]. N.B.You can add a lot of other vegetables to this as well, I added what I already had at home! :)

Stay tuned for tomorrow. We have another giveaway coming up & it is open to everyone!
