SD (my 2 yr old) yesterday referred to the Rongi as baby rajama and I could not help laughing and think about my brother. I and my Bro have always been very fond of Rajama too and we would address rongi as Rajma ka bachha which translates to Baby Rajma. I wanted to call home right away but then for some reason I don’t know why, I waited till today morning. As usual Ma picked it up and I told her about it and her immediate reaction was to laugh and say you both used to call it like that too. Moms don’t forget do they :)
Well I wanted to start my recipe blog with something special and have been wondering what it could be. Today while at work my colleague ‘B’ asked me “what did you get for lunch today?” Black-eyed bean curry I mentioned and she was like wow how do you cook that so I told her the recipe and she said she would try it out and I got my first recipe for the blog. So what if it is simple and easy and a normal Punju dish it is still special and may be someone who reads my blog does not know about it :) so here I go with the recipe.
She also mentioned an interesting fact about black-eyed-bean it seems it is a widely used ingredient in soul food and on New Year day the American families cook this to bring in good luck and good prospects for their family and thanks to her for the photo too. Sometimes a spur of the moment decisions can make you so feel so good.
