This one’s for the hardest of the days and the dullest ones.It’s those opposite kind of days all of us have. At times life throws at us a whirlpoolof activities with too much to do that zaps away all the energy from us. For me at times its the kids, their classes or a last moment school project,visits from unexpected guests, and throw in a surprise visit to the doctor, allthis in just one day! At the end of such a day cooking would not really seem like a fun activity.
In contrast there are days when I find myself sitting with a good book for hours, feeling lazy or watching a good movie with not much activity from the kids front, who are happy playing with their friends. Though I must add that days of these kind are scarce as compared to the former ones.But cooking an elaborate meal would hardly seems appropriate on such a day.
I’ve made this rice on both such days and at times on routine days too with a lot of success. Albeit being a simple preparation,the taste and the flavor of the rice does not let anybody know about the day I have had. Maybe it’s the use of the fresh spices that gives it that feisty flavor and yet keep it so simple.And simple isthe way I would always want such a day to end. After all isn’t it said that life’s best pleasures lie in simple things.
