Today I want to confess one thing. I have a very bad habit of making things in excess. Don’t know why but can never make a smaller batch and my family has a very small appetite. The result is….. Leftovers. But it has another positive side too. Then my mind works to make something else out of that leftover. Mostly that new avatar of the dish (leftover) gets finished soon, but occasionally that further adds to the burden on my fridge. Silly me, still not learn a lesson and make a smaller batch. It’s only for people like me a famous Punjabi sufi poet has written “Waris shah na aadtan jandiyan ne bhanvein kattiyee porian porian ji’ i.e. old habits die hard 😀
Continuing with my bad habit, same thing happened few days back. I made a Gujarati steamed snack… Methi muthiya. Spicy Muthiya with that tempering of sesame and mustard was so good that we finished more than half of the quantity. But you can’t eat more than your appetite, so as usual leftover 😔. And that got shifted at the back of refrigerator…Again as usual 😝
After a couple of days, I was searching my fridge for some vegetable to be cooked and my eyes fell on those muthiya. Those already tasty muthiya came on the table as a new avatar….a spicy gravy with steamed dumplings i.e. Methi Muthiya Curry.
