Red Cabbage, Carrots, and Beans Stir Fry

Now this is such an easy recipe because I put the veggies in the food processor and did not cut it manually :)
Not to mean its difficult to cut the vegetables... it just saves sooo much time and the cooking time is literally a few mins..so if you already have the veggies cut this is very easy to make.. no need to cut onions or tomatoes as we do for curries...



Ingredients:
Red Cabbage (or green) - 1/4 of a small cabbage
Carrots - 2 big
Beans - 1/2 cup (I used the frozen french cut beans)
Coconut - 2 tbsp (optional)
Salt

To Grind:
Green Chilli - 2
Cumin seeds - 1 tbsp
Cilantro - handful

To Temper:
Mustard seeds
Urad dal

Procedure:

  • Cut the vegetables or shred them
  • Heat oil in a wok, splutter mustard seeds and urad dal. Add the red cabbage and saute well
  • Then add the carrots and saute a few seconds. Add the beans and saute well.
  • Add salt and stir the veggies well. Add the coconut and ground mixture and saute few mins

Ozeri 360 Tower Fan Review

Writing a blog post after such a long gap! Feels like a fresh new start!

Its almost the end of summer (at least here :) ) and its the perfect timing to write a review about Ozeri's 360 Tower Fan - yes it oscillates 360 degrees. I took my time, since I received this product aptly at the start of summer and feel like I'm completely ready to tell you about it.




We all know that most of the homes or apartments here in US do not have fans attached.. even if we do, it does not come where we actually want it to be... isn't it more useful to have a fan right in the living room or family room when we have guests over??


This tower fan is perfect for those needs. You can just plug it in when ever or where ever you need. Some of the best points that I can tell you right off the bat are:
  • Noise free blades 
  • Different adjustable speeds
  • Handy remote - easy to operate
  • Adjustable oscillations - up to 360 degrees 
  • Easy storage
  • Timer to operate the fan

This was extremely useful for this summer! I'm sure people living in hot and humid weather are looking out for good fans and I do recommend this for a cool and pleasant indoor. Also, wouldn't it be nice to switch on the fan and open your patio doors to let fresh air in rather than stuffing inside the AC all day long?

To get your fan, order here today - Ozeri 360 Tower Fan
