    I wouldnt really say this list refers to “refrigerator has no vegetables in it”.

    1. Lol…the above list (other than bell pepper) is not considered “vegetables” by most Indians 🙂 They are staples that are ALWAYS in the fridge.

  2. Hey girls:
    We don’t eat eggs. So I substituted them with scrambled tofu and it turned out very good! One creative way of eating the “tofu bhurji” was as the filling of a quesadilla! Total yummness! (yep I’ve just invented a new word!)
    thanks as always and keep up the marvelous job you are doing!
