Recently i got a recipe book which is "simply vegetarian" by paragon books. This recipe has been picked from it, as a sensational side to be eaten with bread. Though i hardly gets time to open a book these days coz of my baby who is so demanding and doesn't let me off even for a second. I was bored of making the usual stuff every day and wanted to pack something different for my dear hubby. So i woke up early and flipped through the pages to find something easy and interesting. I paused at this page to check out if i had all the ingredients with me, but it calls for very few and common ingredients which are used in our daily life. Though it used thyme as a herb but i replaced it with basil, as it said u can use herb of your choice and basil was there fresh in my garden so i dint mind plucking few fresh leaves. Also i used cumin seeds which was not a part of this recipe and was my add on. But it turned up tasty and a bit different from usual routine.
