Gutti Vankaya Kura (Stuffed Egg Plant / Brinjal)

I will be Green, I am also Purple I bear the crown on my top Nobody can stop! And so, I am the king of Vegetables. Egg Plant, otherwise called as Brinjal is considered as the King of Vegetables. Not sure why it is called as the King. Is it called because of the crown shaped head or may be because it tastes better? Whatever, let’s get into the subject here. Gutti Vankaya Kura is a popular Andhra special delight. The delicacy and aroma of this dish will not make you let down if prepared perfectly. In other words simply irresistible.  Here is the Telugu poem I wrote about Gutti Vankaya Kura... కాయలలో ఒక కాయ  కూరగాయల రారాజు  వంకాయ    వేపుడు తింటే పసందు పచ్చడి చేస్తే దిల్ పసందు  పులుసుగా తింటే పులకింత  కూరగా తింటే కవ్వింత .. ఎ కూరగా నైనను.....   గుత్తి వంకాయ కూరే కదా  సుగంధాల సుమధురము!

The dream I had about my Name...

Sometimes the dreams you may have during the sleep are interesting and fascinating too. Often we forgot most of the sequential events happened in the dream, but remember a few after we wake up. I want to tell you an interesting dream I had (I think I am going to remember this date 11/23/2015). This is the dream about how I got my name as Vajra. Before going into the story let me tell you how I got my name actually.  According to my parents, my tatayya(My Father’s father) proposed the name as Vajra Kanth. It’s my mother who suggested the name to be as Deep instead of Kanth(In Indian Context Kanth and Deep means Light) and so that's how I got the name as Vajra Deep. Coming to the Subject….I had a Dream In the dream I saw my grandfather writing on the black board ( He was a Teacher by profession ) explaining how he proposed my name and how Vajra is related to Gandhi. I don’t really remember the complete dream but I know he also said about the river. The first thing I done afte
