Recipe: Masala Bhindi Aloo

Ruelha

This was what I cooked on good Friday. I took a peek into my pantry and decided to have fun with the ingredients in there. I had a lot of tomatoes and some okra. Usually, I make a delicious dry aloo bhindi sabzi. But, I wanted to incorporate some tomatoes in this dish so I decided to make a semi dry version which would go well with any Indian flatbread. I am very pleased with this experiment and am going to be kind and share my recipe with you. 😉

Ingredients: {serves 2 as a main/sole meal and 4 as an accompaniment}

  • 1 large potato, cubed
  • 1.5 med onion, finely chopped
  • 7-10 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 6 medium tomatoes, pureed
  • 250gms okra/bhindi, cubed
  • 3/4 tsp garam masala powder
  • 1/2 tsp red chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp haldi/turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp dhania/coriander powder
  • 1 tsp besan/gram flour

Amor fati

ore de drum

Tarragona, 2016

Ursita, îngăduitoare, a făcut aranjamentele cuvenite ca să ferească cetatea de vreun ireparabil prăpăd.

M-am oprit aici două jumătăți de zi și noaptea dintre ele, ca să-i pot desluși chipul în lumini diferite.

Mă incită dubla reputație a Tarragonei: capitală imperială romană, prima din ținutul iberic și,

azi, al doilea oraș din lume, după Roma, privind calitatea conservării arheologice.

Detalii am aflat din Muzeul național de arheologie, amenajat minimal contemporan.

În 218 î.Hr., legiunile au înființat o solidă bază militară cu intenția de a-și asuma un rol important în toate conflictele din zonă, profitând de portul cu ieșire strategică spre estul Peninsulei Iberice.

Mai târziu, a fost creștinat de Sf.Apostol Pavel și a alunecat treptat în decadență odată cu destrămarea Imperiului Roman.

Până prin 700, când a survenit ocupația arabă, nu se mai întâmplă nimic,

și abia în secolul 12 începe să se dezvolte ca nucleu religios…

Intel Sued Under Wiretapping Laws for Tracking User Activity on its Website | Threatpost

A class-action suit in Florida accuses the tech giant of unlawfully intercepting communications by using session-replay software to capture the interaction of people visiting the corporate homepage Intel.com.

At issue in the case is session replay software that Intel—and many other companies–use on their respective websites that can track how people interact with the site, including recording their mouse movements and clicks, information they input into the site, and the pages and content they view, according to the suit.

The suit claims that this activity by Intel violates the 2020 Florida Security of Communications Act, which makes it illegal to intentionally intercept another person’s electronic communications without first letting the person know and asking for his or her consent.

Former Cop Michael Lee Hardin Arrested for Storming Capitol

A former Utah police officer who won one of his department’s highest honors for a false murder arrest has been charged with crossing the “thin blue line” in the Jan. 6 plot to overthrow the U.S. government. The FBI’s joint terrorism task force, along with Utah’s State Bureau of Investigation, arrested retired Salt Lake City police officer Michael Lee Hardin on Friday, or, as the New York Post describes it, took Hardin “into custody without incident.” Apparently, the deadly “incident” at the Capitol where three officers died doesn’t count. According to the criminal complaint, Hardin was charged with knowingly entering or remaining in a restricted building or grounds without lawful authority; disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building or grounds; disorderly conduct in a Capitol Building; and parading, demonstrating or picketing in a Capitol Building. The 50-year-old sedition enthusiast retired from the Salt Lake City Police Department in 2017 after serving about two decades. In 2012, Hardin was awarded the Officer of the Year for arresting Thomas Pennington on first-degree murder charges in the 25-year-old cold case of Patricia Ramirez, who was strangled and left fo

Disney, Geico backed Florida lawmakers sponsoring restrictive voting bills (Me: stand for freedom and voting, not blocking people from being part of our democracy)

State lawmakers sponsoring these bills have seen contributions from media giants Disney and Charter, prison behemoth the GEO Group, insurance company Geico and trip planner Expedia, along with CenturyLink and other massive corporations. Disney has contributed more than $8,000 to the campaigns of the three lawmakers sponsoring similar Florida voting bills, according to state campaign finance records reviewed by CNBC. Critics say that with these types of bills flowing through state legislatures across the country, corporations have to go farther than putting out statements, and hold back on campaign contributions.
