Taken in the Vedamthangal Bird Sanctuary around 70 kms from Chennai….
I used the masala variety for this that comes nowadays.. Make the oats the normal way. Parallely I also scramble some eggs (not the Indian bhurji style) with sea salt and a pinch of pepper and which I make it dry by keeping it longer on the stove and stirring continuously.Meanwhile when the oats is getting cooked I add my own secret masalas apart from the ones that comes in the oats along with a sprinkle of parmesan. Add the scrambled eggs to the oats, thicken it slightly and top it with some dill and coriander. Simple no??
Regular oats can be powdered and used to thicken soup instead of corn flour and it does a much better job without any change in taste. In the south its also added to the idli and dosa batter or made into a batter itself for making all this. Even common place dishes like upma. Now that’s sowing the oats everywhere
Just mix some usual salad veggies like onions, green peppers, tomatoes, some feta cheese, puck cheese, paprika, a squeeze of lime, jalapenos, pickled red peppers, sea salt and give it a mix. U can add some sugar and ketchup for more intense flavor. Put that in a flat microwave resistant bowl and arrange the tortilla chips on top covering the whole mix. sprinkle some cheese ( I leave that your choice and taste, I used Parmesan) and put in the microwave for abt 5 mins. give it a good mix, add some mustard sauce and its now ready. You can eat the nachos amigos !
I use quite a lot of feta and puck cheese for the gooey consistency in the salsa mix which goes well with the crisp chips.

A lit lamp flickering in the wind has always attracted me though I am not a very religious person and my better half has to force me to accompany her to temples or even to light up the lamp at home sometimes. Maybe it’s the vision it conveys of a lone fire fighting against the wind or the fire that burns within everyone to stand for what they feel is right. Many of them hardly realize or feel that fire but its there. I define that as conditional love for humanity.

This is just a small part of my knife collection. I love collecting knives from different places whether it is just for show or used in the kitchen…The handle of the first (Khukri) and the second (double edged) hunting knife is made from yak horn. Yes all of the ones you see are sharpened to the extreme.
