I'll post the recipe as soon as I know how much chicken exactly, seriously I cook using approximation, can't quantify with teaspoon, tablespoon etc. I don't even know how much chicken I used! Only positive so far is that its easy to cook, takes time but easy it is.

Hi everyone!
Had a great time on Sat. Thanks for the wonderful food and thanks to Sab and Indi for wonderful hosting!
Psy Many happy returns of the day, hope u n Aqua have a blast!!
Shirllin n Vidia, Illl post the recipe for Rajma as well, but need some time... Cooking food is one thing, putting it down on paper is quite another :) I love the first, like Shirllin, its therapy for me (it has never helped me lose weight though)...........
And yes, Megha, Id like to have the Aaloo Capsicum recipe as well. Hope you are not as lazy as Sapph or I am :wink:

I am sending the recipe...I too normally dont measure while cooking, but i dont think this recipe can go too wrong. The non Indians may have to invest on some Indian spices though....

(for approx 3-4 people- moderate portions)

Ingredients:

2 Onions (cut lenghwise)
2 Tomatoes (cut lenghwise)
2 potatoes (cut lenghwise)
1 capsicum (cut lenghwise)
3-4 greenchilles
1 tbsp chopped ginger and garlic or ginger garlic paste
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp coriander powder
1 tsp garam masala powder
2-3 tbsp oil
salt to taste

Put oil preferably in a nonstick dish and saute onions till pink, add greenchillies, garlic and ginger and put all the dry spices, stir well. Add tomatoes, cover and keep on low flame for a 3-4 minutes. Add potatoes and salt & stir and cover and keep on low flame. When potatoes are half cooked, add the capsicum and let it cook till done. keep stirring so that it doesnt stick to the bottom. can garnish with coriander leaves.

So guys please make as it is so easy and now u know why I chose to make this.....

Oops, I forgot, Happy Birthday Psy! I bet he isn't going to log on to read all our messages.

Megha, I make Aloo capsicum the same way, except that I put fenugreek seeds in the oil first, and no garam masala. I think its a more U.P. thing, fenugreek seeds that is. Punjabis are more into jeera, right?

Hahahaha....

If there is enough people who loves cooking we could have a gathering where a few of us come together and cook while learning from each other while the rest stay outside and wait to eat..... :wink: .....LOL.....as though we live to eat.....

I'm all for - Rest stay outside waiting to eat! To cook is the most depressing job on earth! I'm going to make sure the next potluck is at my place so I get to cook rice. :D
In fact, that's the rule as of now, the host gets to make rice, that's all. Hope everyone agrees...
