ARBEE and NUTRI NUGGETS in Tomato Gravy : Aftermath of Mumbai Indians getting kicked out of IPL



What happens when Mumbai Indians disappoint you like anything, when you don't know whether to blame them or to feel sorry for them, all they could do now was to pray and pray hard that Deccan Chargers win their last match, Chennai Super Kings simply loose their seat in the semis, horrible! And to top it all, a team with real good players , Herschelle Gibbs, Adam Gilchrist, Shahid Afridi.. and some other good performers.. again in a position where they are playing their best, but still almost visible that they will loose it.. and finally they loose it, huh, Mumbai Indians out of IPL, deccan chargers prove to be losers once again.. bad very bad.. OK sorry, why all this irrelevant talk over here, seriuosly, what i made today was an aftermath of this, and yess i had to take out the frustration somewhere.



So the final result was this weird combination, arbee and nutri nuggets, i would have never thought of this combination, but this is what is IPL doing to me, i really really wanted Mumbai Indians to be there in the semis, iam happt jaipur and mohali are there, they deserve it, but somehow mumbai indians were better off than chennai super kings(so what if dhoni from jharkhand(my hometown) is there in my chennai team ), but they are to be blamed, i felt like ******* jayasuria after yesterdays match, how could he, and than fernando bowling a wide when they need 3 runs from a ball, they should be sewed.. these two matched were the most dissapointing matches, made me and garg fight, seriuosly, coz he was not supporting the team i was, guess what i had most of d only kulfi left in the firdge simply because garg was not supporting mumbai indians but was all for Jaipur.

OK i stop this here, so basically when i was totally distressed with these results and the way hyderabad was performing today i didnt know what to cook, i was frustrated, i had some arbee in my hand but when u dont find things right around you, you simply dont want to make thats normal(atleast not me), arbee fry :( (will have to cook dal alongwith it).. ok arbee ki rasse wali sabji(why are you behaving like Deccan chargers.. dont u know anything other than yorkers, try some other ball), so here iam , unaware of what am i about to do , i fetch some nutri nuggets and finalize on ,mixing arbee and nutri nuggets. But when everything else was not gonig right, this one thing didnt go wrong, yeah, it turned out pretty tasty, the flavors blended pretty well and the end result was appreciated, by the time i was serving this, i had kind of realized that i had come up with something very weird and its very much possible that garg deary might not like it, and i should be ready to accept it, instead of venting out my frustration on him, but surprisingly bnoth of liked it, it did taste good, and we might go for it again when we want something different from the usuals. So here we go ..

Ingredients:250 gms Arbee
100 gms nutri nuggets
2 big onions finely chopped
2 big tomatoes finely chopped
1 inch ginger piece finely chopped
1 tsp cumin seeds
3 green chillies slit lengthwise
1 tsp turmeric pwd
1 tsp red chilli pwd
2-3 tsp coriander pwd
1 tsp kitchen king(optional)
1/2 tsp amchur (dried mango pwd)

Method:1. Boil the nutri nuggets as intructed in the pack, usually you need to soak nutri nuggets in boiling water for 10-15 mins, and the water needs to be drained out and kept aside.
2. Pressure cook the arbee for not more than two whistles. Otherwise it gets soggy, peel and keep aside. Cut it into small peices, 1 inch dices
3. In a pan add some oil and heat it, fry the arbee pieces till they become light brown and remove from heat and keep aside.
4. In d remaining oil add the cumin seeds and let it splutter, now add the green chillies, ginger and onions, and saute till the onions are done, add all the salts and saute for another minute or so.
5. To this add the tomatoes and saute till the tomatoes are blendecwell in this mixture, this mite take another 5-10 minutes.
6. To this add the nutri nuggets and fried arbee and mix well. Add 2 small cups of water and cover the pan and let it cook for 10 minutes. Stir occasionally to check it doesn't stick . Once the gravy blends well with the nuggets and arbee, the curry is done, remove from heat, it is ready for serving.
7. Serve with hot phulkas.

  4. Ohh Swati..I was very very disappointed too when I saw Mumbai Indians loosing the match :(. I wanted them in semis instead of Delhi or Chennai teams (I like Sachin soooo much). I even yelled at V when he cheered Jaipur for the huge Six they hit in last over.
    Anyway...Since we don't get any channels with cricket here in US, the impact was not so much.
    The subji looks great.
