Strawberry Rasam / Easy fruit curry

             The other day I ran out of tomatoes and had just some tart ripe strawberries instead. They were beginning to soften too so I made this rasam. Since its tangy curry my daughter will drink it anyway so I went ahead with the trial. Till the end of the meal I did not tell my herd its strawberry and not the usual tomato rasam we make. I wasn't surprised  that no one noticed either esp my daughter because it tasted exactly like tomato rasam. They really liked it.You must be thinking its easy to fool kids.... oh leave alone seeing and finding out she can detect what curry is made from the garage itself .:)).

5 Advantages of ordering food online

        A bunch of your old friends call up and say they are in town. You are thrilled and want to treat them but knowing one couple has become pure vegetarian, the next one loves spicy Indian  meat dishes  and the last couple plus a  large family including kids have mixed taste . Since the group has strong food preferences it is definitely a task you do not want to challenge yourself with after a long day at work.
        Taking your guests  to a restaurant is a feasible option but it would become just another formal meeting .The time you can spend in the restaurant in the evenings is also very limited. The wait time for the table and above all when it is a large group unless you have reserved  in advance u don't get to sit together. Usually they try to accommodate large group by joining tables etc but you can be just prepared to be split up into small groups too. Is that not enough to kill the enthusiasm of the old friends get together. So you want them to come home sit down, chat, make noise, say old jokes and stuffs like that which is definitely not possible in a crowded area.Coming back to main decision of what you are going to serve them.  What main course and dessert are you going to serve at such short notice ?
