Moviethon vs Eatethon

Wednesday is movie day for me, because of the awesome deal buy 1 get 1 ticket free. So few Wednesdays ago we went for Fast 5. This was my first Fast and Furious movie. I have always been an avid fan of cars and speed; here you have the complete formula. Vin Diesel was a treat, in fact all the characters played their best oh and yes the cars were just marvellous. I loved the whole film in and out. There was not a moment devoid of thrill and momentum. The movie was so much fun and we were so engrossed into it that eating popcorn took a back seat. After the movie both Yoel and me were laughing thinking how the “bad guys” alike Robin Hood are so cool, be it Chul-bul Pandey or Dom and Brian. It’s always these guys who appeal more to the crowds and we love to be like them. Hahaha….this also reminds me of this Sunday’s sermon which said “bad things come to us naturally, it’s only the good things that we have to learn or are taught. But we are released from all our sins just by believing in Jesus Christ who is our saviour”.

After watching this movie and enjoying it to the core, Yoel got me all the previous parts; we planned a Fast and Furious marathon with two of our friends. Come Saturday, I cooked pav bhaji and friends got yummy calorie-licious, trifle. Trifle always reminds me of Lea, friend and co-worker in Melbourne. In fact, Lea is nicknamed the “trifle queen” for the very reason. This trifle was also awesome, thanks to Rizwan and Sobia. It was a fun fast and furious day. We started off with the first part at around 2pm and finished at 11pm at night. So yes 9 hours of thrill, speed, and adrenaline rush, Vin Diesel, laughter, talks and FOOD….Great Saturday in all.

Pav Bhaji… a yummy vegetarian dish cooked in heaps and heaps of butter. But yesterday to make it healthy I cooked in oil rather than butter. Its a very simple dish.

  • Boil 4 potatoes and 2 carrots
  • In a frying pan, fry chopped onions and a tbsp of ginger-garlic paste
  • Add chopped capsicum and sauté it for 3 minutes
  • Add chopped tomatoes and cook for the next 3 minutes
  • 3 tbsp of pav bhaji masala (Indian grocery store)
  • Add handful of pea and small pieces of cauliflower
  • When all this is cooked add the mashed boil potatoes and carrots
  • Put half a cup of water and let it boil off
  • Garnish it with coriander leaves and less salt to taste

Serve it with hot grilled pav (buns) and fresh chopped onions and coriander.

A yummy , palatable and fulfilling dinner.

This pav Bhaji masala can also be made at home using cumin powder, coriander powder, amchur, garam masala and chilli powder.

This Wednesday, it was time to again go crazy with the “Wolf Pack”, Hangover 2. Oh hilarious movie. The best part are the dialogues and Allan’s attitude. The story line remains the same but the experiences and adventures are humourous. Must watch, do not compare with the first one, just go and have a good laugh…more
