It is winter and very cold in Bangalore these days. It made me remember the food that my mom cooked during the really cold winters of the North during my childhood. Gajar ka halwa was a staple. I also remember that she made a curried dish of peas, and I have been trying to recall its name since many days, only remembering that the name resembled a disease :). Yesterday, it struck me — Nimona. I know weird name, but I looked up on the internet and found the recipe for the Awadhi Nimona that my mom made. So, I took the recipe that looked closest to the dish (Tarla Dalal one) I remember and made it yesterday. It did turn out pretty decent. Made with crushed peas and potatoes, it tastes different from the normal peas-potato gravy that we cook perhaps due to the sweetness of fresh peas that are coarsely crushed for the gravy. This is not restaurant-type dish but good, wholesome homecooked food. So, hopefully I will continue making it through the winter. You see the picture of my effort above.
