Simply Sunday!

Sunday lunches are normally elaborate affairs. Sunday starts off on a leisurely pace and by the time the fancier-than-normal breakfast (weekday breakfasts are usually boring affairs of cereals, smoothies, toasts or eggs!) session is over it's almost 11am. Then starts some special lunch menu with SD throwing in his suggestions which on Sundays are entertained and indulged.
Today was different. Yesterday night we watched a movie till 2 am and the late Sunday mornings became REALLY late! Hence breakfast was the normal lacklustre affair!
After two consecutive days of eating out, the stomach was begging for some relief and relaxation. So I decided to let this Sunday lunch be a simple affair! Less of spice and frills....just a simple Bong recipe of Mushurir Dal (Masoor dal), Alu Bhaja (Fried potato juliennes), Pabda Maachher Patla Jhol (Light Pabda fish curry) and Shaada Doi (Plain curd).
The squeaky clean plate of AD and the contented look on SD's face told me that the Simple Affair had been a healthy, wholesome and tasty hit!

These finely sliced Alubhaja are really yummy very crispy & ideal to be had as a side dish with dal or just as a snack!
Just marinate the finely sliced potatoes in a pinch of haldi and salt for 5-10minutes. Then simply deep fried.
No other ingredient.
Yes we had everything with plain rice...glutton we are...on holidays, when eating at home it rice all the away 99% of the time:D :D
And it shows on the weighing scales!! ;((((
