A quick Indian side today. Cauliflower, carrots and peas saute with ginger and cumin. Cumin seeds and finely chopped ginger are roasted in a little oil, then cauliflower and carrots and peas are cooked till tender.
We served this with some simple Mung Bean Dal, flatbread, pickle, onion and cucumber salad.
Pardon the pictures.. thats the leftovers. Everyone ate the good looking cauliflower florets 😉

Mom loves simple Indian Subzi (veggie saute/stir fry) with a whole spice or two. She keeps changing up the spice(fennel, mustard, coriander or caraway seeds) and combines it with other flavors(ginger, garlic, chili etc) to make a variation of the same veggie side. This one can be changed up to taste with different spices, tempering and flavor combinations.

Random house blabber. We have about 30 windows in the new house. And almost all need some shades or blinds. Me Beats head on one of the windows. The to-do list is never ending. We are trying to keep this house green and plant-based as much as possible. It is an effort to find all eco friendly, non toxic, plant based options for things that keep coming up, but we will get there. It might take a bit longer. One step at a time. Any suggestions for some eco and wallet friendly window treatments and shelving solutions(need multiple shelves for the clothes closet and my studio room) will be very appreciated:)
