Ghanaian Soya

Hello Folks!!

How have y’ll been? Well, I have been quite occupied with my work and planning for my vacation to the US this year. Yah, I got my tickets done and I’m planning to visit DC, NYC, B’more, Philly, KC & Dallas.

Anyways, this post is about a new food item which I learned from my friend George Gyau of Ghana; its called as ‘Ghanaian Soya’.

I learned this recipe from him, while he was here in Bombay for an internship through AIESEC. He used to make this item mebbe every Sunday I suppose….

Anyways, here’s how he made it.

Ingredients:

1 packet – Soya bean
1 finely chopped onion
1 finely chopped tomato
2 finely chopped potato (french fries style)
Cooking oil (coconut or olive) anything.
tomato puree/sauce.
finely chopped coriander.

 

Preparation:

Firstly, empty the packet of soya into a bowl full of water and leave it for 10 mins, till the beans become soft and spongy.

Then, take your cookware and pour a lil oil into it, followed by chopped onion, tomato and potato. Stir it till the colour of onion is gold and potatoes are cooked well, then put all the beans inside it and stir it for 10 mins.

Lastly, the touch of tomato puree or sauce whatever you have at home and coriander. Cover with the lid for a 2 mins and let it cook.
Serve it with rice or eat with bread.!!

Love
Alan.

Merry Christmas Dear Bloggers

It’s the most beautiful time of the year. Yes, its true Christmas time is here!

Bring out the chocolates, sweets, cakes and pastries.
Out come the smiles & laughter, filled with cheers brought by gifts and Santa stories.

This year has been a remarkable one, mostly owing to the adventurous tours, beginning my blog, and spending quality time with my buddies.

Often people think, this is a time to rejoice, reunite & go out on holidays, however they fail to realize that, its this time of year when we come out of our old closet  and embrace a new reality of life…

We are born-again and just a like a butterfly from its cocoon.

It’s the time when we should let the bygones be bygones…. The soul does cry out when happiness is felt to its core…

Many a things we lose and many we gain, but one thing remains; it’s the quality time spent with our loved ones this year… that passes by…

With all love from this part of the world…I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Feliz Navidad 🙂

Love
Alan

 

 

 

Nothing much to say

What’s up folks!!

How’s life treating you so far?? I know I haven’t written in a long time… (LIKE PEOPLE CARE) ???!! LOL

Has it ever crossed your brilliant mind, sometimes life has so much to offer you, but you are staring blankly at some normal routine and boring stuff…

Yeah! When you start caring about things you love to do … then its your real self that is manifested…

People come everyday in the world and they go.. its right there… the life is blank completely blank…

I believe in making each day count…

Past few weeks, I haven’t been myself… I started working hard for some deals but couldn’t crack… then when I wasn’t looking for it… it came right at my face staring at me… !!

I suppose life will keep surprising us…all we have to do is embrace its offering!!

Love
Alan

There is no Love

What’s up people!!! What’s down!!

I have been thinking, when people say ‘I cannot live without you’ is just a bluff…

Most of the time in our darkest hour we say things like, oh I wish I could have had him/her more …
Even if our own kin our own mother or father, they the most loved ones passes away the pain is for a time… then memories…
it just fades away.

Time is a different thing… it doesn’t stop for anyone… it changes … with time the picture becomes blur…

You don’t remember the bygones.. do you?

You only get to live once… Why not live to the max?? I say its LIKING rather than LOVING…

People say, i’m incomplete without you… I say you were never… You came alone and will go alone…

Life is just a journey with all strangers… Its the realization that makes you a different person…

Expect nothing, you’ve nothing to lose.. Like people not love…

Love
Alan
