Vegetable Pulav

P1010989

Rain has been spoiling our spring since the last few days and today was just the same,we saw bright sun in the afternoon,so we packed the old breads and headed towards a nearby park to feed ducks and to spend some time in the childrens playground,but bummer..as soon as we reached the park, clouds came all together and it looked as if its going to pour down cats and dogs.But since we were so determined to feed the ducks,we walked towards the pond and started throwing breads to ducks,but to our surprise,not even a sinlge duck came for our bread,I guess on sundays they get a lot of breads and the ducks looked as if they were full and didnt even bother to see what we were throwing,finally to cheer up lil A we started feeding some doves,luckily they showed some interest on breads,thats all we could do when the rain started to pour down and we had to run towards the car.So all together I was disappointed,but then when we got home,I got into a mood to eat some cutlets, S too nodded in agreement,but again we didnt have fish or chicken to make cutlets,so we walked to a nearby supermarket and got some chicken.I cheered up and started cooking in a good mood.Deep frying things is something that I always leave to S when he is at home,so when I finished everything,I gave him the last job to fry it and went away,but my lazy DH,skipped deep frying all together and shallow fried everything.I tasted the first cultet ,and to my disappointment the inside of the cutlet was not done,it was bit moist,so I got really mad at him for spoiling all my effort ! If all went well today I would have posted the cutlet here today :( But poor S has promised me that he will make it up to me by making cutlets for me next week :)

So here I am with a Pulav which I made last week..
