Prophylactic self-isolation for dinner preparation. Day 132nd.

Three steps – one dinner


Usually, I would avoid potatoes because it full of starch and gives zero energy to a body (according Ayurveda), but… baby potatoes are young and guiltless. Baby potatoes have very low amount of starch and therefore, in my opinion, are not harmful (or much less harmful) for energy loss. so, summer is a time to enjoy potatoes! (baby potatoes:))

Abbreviations and their meaning

How to make it:

  1. Step 1. Baby potatoes (only available at summer time)
    1. Cook baby potatoes in a steamer
  2. Step 2. Garnish
    1. Chop onion and stew it in a pan with a bit of Ghee butter or olive oil (I prefer Ghee) for 5 min
    2. Add black and red pepper corns, coriander, galangal, salt, chopped green chili pepper and stew for another 5 min
    3. Add minced garlic, stew 5 min more
    4. Cut green beans (without edges) into 2 pieces and add to the pan, add some water, close a lid and stew on medium-to-low heat for 10 min
  3. Step 3. Salad
    1. Chop cucumber and lettuce leaves
    2. Grate radish, leaving the ends of it not grated. No need to grate fingers!:)
    3. Mix all together. It is ready!

Important to know:

  • Grate radish, leaving the ends of it not grated. Yes, radish could be grated not in equal pieces, what’s a problem? The most important moment is not to cut the fingers with grater! When you mix a salad ingredients all together – the taste is the same, or could appear as more interesting

  • Do not peel the skin of baby potatoes, just wash it thoroughly with water and brush

  • Follow a set of species in this recipe for not to make all the dishes you cook to taste similar
Tasty process:) I have bought my new high quality pan from a friend of mine. She has plenty of them, me – only one:) I like it, super good choice!
  • I was cooking this dinner yesterday. You see, all the ingredients are for one person, because… because I was fasting yesterday. So, the dinner was exiting, but not for me that time, I was fasting…:)
