Today is the day before the New Year’s eve and during the last couple of days, the minimum temperature lies between 15 degree to 10-degree centigrade. So now we can say it is winter season and everybody started using a blanket, sweater or other warm clothes. There are a lot of fresh seasonal vegetables available in the local vegetable market. That is why we always try to add a lot of different vegetables in the daily meal. We also love to have a warm drink during this winter season. So today I had such a wonderful dinner menu which was most enjoyable but very simple during this season.
The best part of this dinner is that most of the vegetables used for this meal were fresh & healthy because I harvested those from my rooftop garden.
I harvested a few French beans from my rooftop garden. I also collected onion flower buds, leaves, fresh tomatoes and carrots from my garden.
Now, what is the most enjoyable & simple food during the winter season?
What would be your answer? Your answer might be different but I would say momos are the most enjoyable & simple food in the winter season. It is easy to make & easy to eat food. You can have chicken momo or paneer momo or veg momo or egg momo too. There are different options in momos. Almost every people love this food and you can find many street food vendors are selling it during the season. Hot & spicy momo’s chatni make this food more mouthwatering.
The second item which is also most preferable during the winter season is warm soup. Here also you will get many options. There are hundreds of different types of soup available across the world in different cuisines. You can pick one according to your choice.
So here is my dinner menu what I tried on the day before the New Year’s eve
Egg momos : Most of us normally eat chicken momos, paneer momos or veg momos. Even paneer momos which is popular in Northern Indian states are not easily available in Kolkata or its nearby region. But egg momo is available nowhere. You may need need to travel a long distance because only one or two stalls may sell egg momo in your city. But it is very easy to make and delicious too. I love those egg momo a lot for any special occasion. A leisure day during the winter season is always a special day. That is why I prepared it the day before New year’s eve. We had those soft & tasty homemade momos with homemade hot & spicy chatni.
Warm mixed veg soup : A bowl of warm soup is always enjoyable during this season. It is not just enjoyable but also very healthy. Anybody can make soup with his/her favorite vegetables. Many people also love chicken soup. It helps us to keep our body warm.
