Vegan Mofo Day 21:
Weekend whizzed by very fast as usual, nothing much was accomplished, though there are too many tasks on the list. Didn’t touch the stove until Sunday evening due to laziness, little bit of shopping and party at friends place. So finally when I started to cook, I had half a bag of baby spinach, half a bunch of bok-choy and a 3 huge bunches of scallions. So all of them went into this easy, tasty stir fry. I fried some home made vadiyalu/ wada (fritters, for lack of good English translation). My mom makes sure that I’m well stocked with these at all times.
