Today went to SOAS library. Its really good for Sikhi books. I had to do so much photocopying and it was HOT in the library and BOILING in the photocopying room. I don't think my shell-suit type material kurta pyjama did me any favours!! I felt so warm and bit stuffy! Couldn't wait to get out and go back to halls to have something to eat.
On the way back to halls I walked and did Rehraas Sahib da paath. On the weekend my mum gave me daal sabjee to take back to uni. So I was all excited to eat daal sabji (and not regular old cheese on toast :( Waheguru!). On the way back I bought some Pitta Breads from the nearby shop. Well, Pita Breads are the next best thing to roti when you're desperate. So I went for the "6 Garlic Pitta".
Got back to halls and got the sabji out of the freezer and quickly put it in the microwave. Waheguru! Yum, yum... nice sabji.. and a bit of pitta bread - maujaa hee maujaa :). I put the Pitta bread in my small oven in my room. Waheguru! Pitta bread is ready and sabji is garam. Vah vi vah. I put sabji and dehee (yoghurt) in my plate and do Ardaas. I looked at the Sabji and wondered what sabji it was. O well, I broke a piece of Pitta and put the Sabji in my mouth.
WAIT!! Something inside me says, "WHAT ARE YOU EATING." I stop. I look back at my plate and stare at the sabji. Wahegurooo.... is that sabji or KEEMAA (minced lamb!)!! I stared carefully and all I could see is a huge chunks, like Keema. I felt sick. THANK GOD that I hadn't swallowed what I had in my mouth. I spat it out, washed my mouth out with paani (water) and then did my toothbrush.
I rang home to say that my mum accidently gave my KEEMA to eat. My dad picked up and told him what happened. He said that it wasn't keema or meat but sabji. He said that they hadn't made meat for a long long time, and furthermore they don't freeze meat. He said ring back in few minutes when my mum is free. So while I am waiting I stare at the sabji, and start to prod and poke at it. RAB DA SHUKAR... I see a few mushroom pieces amongst the peas and ahloo. Then I got confused - it could be Keema with mushroom, peas and ahloo!?!?!
WHY ME!!!!!!!!! Bit shocked by the meat scare!
I rang back and my mum said that it is definately not Keema and that she gave me Mushroom di sabji. Apparently my mum put more Piaaj (onions) than usual, so the turkaa is stronger and might have looked like "Keema". lol. I felt soooo relieved and got tucked into the Sabji. yum, yum.. good to have good old home cooked daal sabji at university :)
