Curry Mela 14th

I am late again.
Yesterday, a very stubborn tooth had to be removed and believe me it pained like Hell. I was once beaten by a mob after I hit a lady with my bike, BY ACCIDENT. And it didn't hurt that much because I was all guilty. I was on my way to my tuitions. The lady was hospitalised.

The tooth or the place where it had been pains like hell as I type this, and the corner of lips OWWWW. They had stretched it till kingdom come, and i didn't realise till today morning since i was on anaesthesia. It was the wisdom tooth, and it had ingrown inside pressing itself hard againts the next tooth and giving me lots of pain ( it was not decayed... I am too hygenic and take care of myself for that), so doctor said it had to be removed... It hadn't come out of the gum too, so it had to cut open and removed. The doctor was a lady so I could'nt scream either. I could really acted that way before a lady eh! Well, the doctor was a pretty lady. And it hurt like hell.. STILL HURTS, and the broadband provider disconnected or disabled my account for some strange reasons. I mean today of all days... SO i had to come to a cyber cafe... one side of the face all swelling... Actually i came because I wanted to sip the cold Granitas they serve at the Java green Cafe inside the Cyber cafe. Unfortunately that was also not there today... lol.... But the show must go on isn't it....

So here goes our 14th curry mela.... do enjoy... and where is that ICE CREAM.....
If you find any spelling or grammatical mistakes, blame it to the pain killer.. I am slightly groggy...

This is the latest addition to my Curry mela, Blame my tooth ache, i somehow missed adding this entry.. My I apologize??? Anyway, the enormity of the mistake is further deepened by the fcat this is one of my favorite dishes and the recipe of this Prawns varuval/fry is just amazing...

We cook daal almost every day, bachelors and non-bachelors alike, but to get the perfect daal is not as easy a feat. Cheack out this amazing everyday dal fry.

Asparagus bruschetta with goats cheese, wow, a perfect private romatic set-up.. That bottle of wine, but where is the other glass..

Don't you all love this Desi Style Panini, the next best thing that happened after Mac Aloo tikki eh!!!

Leftover surprise or-diving into indian food Most apt for a bachelor... for bachelor cookin ;-). Check out this amazingly pleasant surprise, from another new blogger on my blog.. Introducing new bloggers is also part of the curry blogger BTW. DO check out..


Another of my favorite, fish curry, a food stable on our dish except on thurdays when my mom goes all vegetarian

Soya fritters (vadai) , I have had aloo fritters, prawn fritter, and even peas fritters, this one was news to me.. And BTW, let also introduce this New blogger on the block with this recipe entry..


Spicy Mint Aloo & Half-off Coleslaw Wrap, Drooling all over. I wish I hadn't this pain in the tooth. lol. I would love to munch down on it...

Kala Channa fry, kala chana is a very healthy food, full of protien and good for the digestive system. Taste great with parothas or rotis...

Hi Anthony,
Its not easy to write food comments when the teeth is hurting and the mouth has a different taste because of the anasthesia - But I am really surprised with your commitment to get it going to enter in all the entries - Thank you very much - Now I know why your blog is sooo popular.
Take care and get well soon

Hope you are doing good. I better know abt this wisdom tooth (i have removed my lower 2's).
Best thing to do: Rinse the treated area with salt water whenever possible(helps healing faster, without causing any inflammation further). Treat with icepack too. Eat mashed food(less spicy)... have icecream too:)
Great round up. Appreciate your dedication despite your toothache.
Take care buddy.

Sorry about your tooth, but your article sounded humourous to me. I had a wisdom tooth problem too & I was sitting with a swollen mouth in my office. But thankfully I was not beaten up by anybody.
