Once again today Noor melted my heart with her “you make very nice food , Mama” statement.
I love it when they seem to enjoy their meal.
Indira expresses the same feeling when she comes sniffing around the kitchen; she is one for showing her appreciation with her nose.
But it is Noor who often tells me “I love all the food you make ” and sometimes “you are the best cooker ever”. So just for her I’ll come back to put down the recipes for today’s lunch – vegetable pulao ( a south Indian sort with a spice mix called pitlai powder) and cucumber raita.
Indira seemed to think , while she watched me make the raita, that it was one she didn’t like ( I haven’t made it since last summer, probably) but the heat has been so bad this week I thought it was what we needed to eat today.
So it was good to see her polish off two katoras of it and a little more…
