Swiss Chard with Pumpkin

Swiss Chard is one of our favourite greens. And cooked with pumpkin cubes and dry red chillies, it makes a really pretty dish....with all the greens and oranges and reds in it.

Ingredients:
Pumpin/Calabaza - 3 cups, cubed
Swiss Chard - 2 bunches*
Onion - 1/2 cup, diced
Ginger - 1/2 inch knob, minced
Panch Phoron - 1 tsp
Dry Red Chillies - 2, broken
Coriander Seed/Dhaniya Powder - 1 tsp
Olive Oil - 1 tbsp
Salt - to taste

Method:
1. Wash Swiss Chard thoroughly. Remove tough stems and shred roughly. You could use a salad spinner to get rid of the excess water at this stage.**
2. Heat oil in pan. Add panch phoron and dry red chillies. Wait for the seasoning to sputter.
3. Now add the onions, saute till translucent and then add ginger and dhaniya powder. Cook till the raw smell dissipates.
4. Now add the diced pumpkin and salt. Cover the pan and let the pumpkin cook for 4-5 minutes until half way tender.
5. Finally add the Swiss Chard and cook until the pumpkin is tender and the chard well cooked. This should take another 4- 5 minutes. Check seasoning one last time.
6. Serve with piping hot massor dal, rice and lemon wedges.

* this gave me about 5 handfuls of chopped greens
** I usually wash and chop up my greens as soon as I get them from the store. I give them a couple of spins in my salad spinner and then use the salad spinner itself for storing them in the refridgerator.

An excellent blog there. A very good read. Thanks for all the tips provided!
I love to watch TV on my new LCD screen. After enjoying the pleasure of watching TV on my new 26” LCD I don’t think I will ever go back to watching TV the old fashioned way. Better still my LCD was a gift. When something comes free you enjoy it a lot more. Why? No idea.

You could be in for a chance to have one for a ‘Christmas present’ from this online casino slot games site.

How do you win? Just play on Christmas Eve and New Years Eve. On both days someone is going to win a LCD screen. Obviously I’ll be on there all day trying to win a second LCD screen for me. Just thought I would let everyone else know as well. You only have a chance of winning if you play.

I will try my luck by spending all day on the Internet Casino Slot game. This way in case I don’t win the screen i still make some money.

Some LCD Facts:
• LCD stands for ‘Liquid crystal display’.
• Early LCD television had drawbacks relative to traditional visual display technologies. It displayed fast-moving action with "ghosting" and could be viewed best only when looking directly at the screen or from a slight angle. Most of these problems were solved in recent years, and LCD televisions, along with plasma displays, have become more popular worldwide than cathode ray display televisions. The LCD design is also known for being more energy efficient than the CRT design.
