Small Painting-Warli Art

Hi Friends,

Summer is here and so is the time for summer decor, what say ?
I am extremely passionate about Indian Folk Art, with Warli and Madhubani being my favourite forms of art. Warli painting needs no introduction. When we see Warli painting, we know that art need not be complex/complicated to be appreciated. Warli paintings depict every day life in simple forms and straight lines.

While the traditional paintings use only a single colour-White on a mud base, I have tried to break the monochrome and incorporate some additional elements too.
Work In Progress
 Have used Blue and Dark brown as background and White for the basic forms. Though I have made few Warli Paintings earlier, settled for small ones this time with merry making as the subject...

These two dimensional life forms in the Warli painting create magic when incorporated in modern home decor. These beauties have taken their place in my foyer as part of Summer decor and it looks ever beautiful....smiles...

They can also be framed and hung on the wall.
Do let me know how you liked it.

Chilli-Garlic Prawns on a bed of Pan Fried Veggies (with garlic n rosemary)

 Been away for a while since my last post. Winter is ending but, we can still feel the nip in the air in the mornings. From savouring warm Gajar ka Halwa (Carrot halwa) to sipping a hot cup of tea with steaming Momos, Delhi is an absolute wonder in winters. The winter vegetables, a riot of colours in Delhi need no introduction. Its these veggies which inspired me to cook up a storm one evening and the outcome was excellent. Thought of sharing the recipe with you all.

Chilli-Garlic Prawns on a bed of Pan Fried Veggies
Chilli-Garlic Prawns on a bed of Pan Fried Veggies (with garlic n rosemary)

Chilli-Garlic Prawns
500g- Prawns
5-6 pods Garlic chopped finely
1 Onion diced
2 Dry Red Chillies de-seeded and chopped finely
2-4 tsp Sesame Oil
2 tsp tomato sauce
1tsp Chilli sauce and
1tsp Soy sauce

Wash and clean the prawns and marinate with salt, turmeric and lemon juice. Shallow fry in two tsp oil and keep it aside. In another wok heat 2 tsp oil, add chilli, onion, garlic and toss for 2-3 mn. Add prawns followed by sauces and saute till prawns are coated finely
(I avoided batter frying as it kills the natural flavour of prawns).

Pan Fried Veggies
1-Broccoli(medium sized pieces)
250g Mushroom(Chopped)
150g French Beans(Chopped)
3tsp Olive oil
7-8 pods Garlic chopped finely
Rosemary for garnish

Blanch Broccoli and French beans in salt water for 2-3 mn(ensure that they are still crisp). Shallow fry mushrooms in 1tsp oil n salt and keep aside. In a wok add 2tsp Olive oil, garlic and saute the broccoli and beans for 2-3 min, then add mushroom and rosemary for garnish.
Arrange the Prawns on the bed of veggies and serve hot !

Do leave me a comment after trying this.

Featured on Kreative Korner

Hi All,

Good Morning and Welcome to Ruby's Palette once again !

A big thanks to Tanya from Kreative Korner for the lovely feature on my blog. She has done a wonderful job of putting this together and I enjoyed going through the post completely ..smiles..

Here’s a sneak peek of what she says about Ruby’s Palette-

Introducing Ruby

The two things that come to my mind instantly when I am expecting guests, be it family or friends, are- 1) the house should be at it's best to welcome them and 2) what am I gonna serve to tickle their taste buds. Once I have handled these two, the other things just follow suit.

However, hosting guests, here on the blog, relives me of even these two. No cooking. No cleaning. Only fun and talking.

Talking about talking, I should rather stop talking and let our guest do the talking. Over to Ruby... 

Its indeed a pleasure to be guest posting at Kreative Korner today. Would like to thank Tanya for inviting me to author at Kreative Korner. Looking forward to many more wonderful collaborations in future. Tanya is doing a great job at her blog and wishing her all the best !

For the entire feature hop on here.

Hope you enjoyed going through the post as much I did putting it together…smiles..
