You have good days and bad days, long days and short days, happy days and sad days, then you have busy days and lazy days..I have my lazy days when I feel like doing nothing, by nothing, i mean literally nothing. I would not cook even if my life depended on it, may be I would but you know what I mean. I would lounge around in my pyjamas and read the whole day, speak over the telephone , watch a movie, basically, anything to avoid work or any thing related to it. Yesterday was one such day for me. I literally did nothing, zero , zit..
Apart from watching Air Crash Investigations, I love that show, I specially record it, if I miss an episode, an ardent follower since its inception in in 2003, and every episode that followed since then. P says I am crazy, how can air crash interest you, I mean people die or almost die and you enjoy watching it? Well I like the whole technical aspect of it. The bottom line is I love that show. So I spent the evening watching re runs and I was no mood to cook, but dinner was essential and take away did not seem inviting. However, the freezer is always a big help when you don’t want to cook. So dinner under 30 mins, with a little help from the sous chef; aka my freezer.

Ready to eat Kathi rolls:
- Box of ready to eat sheek kabak, I used Bombay Kitchen ; you can use any, ( In India; you get them in new swanky butcher shops.. Green Chick shop in Delhi for one I know..)
- Yogurt- 6-8 table spoons
- Mint chutney-5 table spoons
- Onion-1 thinly sliced
- green chilly- 1-2 chopped
- lime juice-1 lime
- Chapattis – as many rolls as you want- (these were home made, I used 4)
- Paper towel- to hold the roll
Cook the kebabs as per instruction, mine said to microwave for 4 mins on high. Next in a bowl mix the yogurt and the mint chutney to make a yogurt based dip, you can add a pinch of pepper if you wish. Now make the chapattis you are making fresh like me, other wise heat them at this point. Next on a flat surface, preferably a chopping board, first spread the yogurt dip, next spread the onion slices and the green chilly. Finally place the sheek kabab and sprinkle lemon juice and wrap it up, with a foil or a napkin or kitchen roll to hold it in place.. Voila dinner is served..
