Have you ever felt that after finishing your all work, when you just start stretching yourself to relax then suddenly you realise that something is missing and you find out that some small but important work is left. I can understand that feeling, i feel it most of the time after finishing everything and then i put a reminder in my mobile for that. Phewww busy life. Do not know how to handle it. Anybody there to give me some tips?
Accompaniments are best thing in this kind of busy schedule. You are short of something just make some accompaniment and dinner/lunch/breakfast platter is complete. Curd is one of them. Just mix any veg/spice you have in hand and it will never disappoint you. So here I am posting very simple but flavouful accompaniment to complete a meal. Cumin/ Jeera Flavored Curd/Raita.
