Butternut Squash Raita(Dip) and My Experiance watching MNIK !!!

This very popular Butternut Squash (Kaddu) raita is a delicious and easy recipe prepared with boiled butternut squash, creamy yogurt, and other basic but flavourful ingredients.

Went to see yesterday MNIK (MY NAME IS KHAN) !!! really I don't prefer to watch movies in the first week, coz gets really over crowded, I prefer some breathing space as people sitting nearby suffocates you with sneezing and coughing, also inconsiderate parents allowing their kids sitting behind kicking your seats, endless disturbance!

If a person has a disability of some sort and does unusual things everybody reacts to it but when normal people behave unjustly in public places like cinemas, It is just not right !!during my movie yesterday I had to break my silence and asked the two ladies sitting next to me to stop making noise with their crisp packets, which went on for ages and it was just driving my patience. So I bravely spoke out to them !!

I would like to ask you fellow bloggers Did I do the right to speak out to them inconsiderate people or Should I have kept quiet? (Snack which makes irritating noise should be eaten before the movie starts or during interval) Because of such distractions in cinema, I prefer to watch movies at home in my own comfort zone!!

Now coming to my recipe, Butternut Squash Raita which my Mum used to prepare, it was her favourite. Very healthy, light, slightly sweet and creamy. This raita is very easy to digest. So quick and easy recipe which can be consumed during the fasting period too.

  1. With summer approaching will look forward to such coolant raitas.
    I agree it's irritating at times especially when it comes from grown ups, I think telling politely to stop it is a right thing.

  4. hey.. nice raita.. loved the pic..the presentation.. i can get the smell of roasted cumin..
    U did right by asking them.. everybody has the right to enjoy movie but not at the stake of others.. Btw, did u like it? It found it too dragged and didnt understand why Karan Johar had to bring in the hurricane?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Lolz jagruti I thought you were going to review the movie my name is khan when I saw your post title instead you wented your frustration at inconsiderate people in cinema halls!!!!he heee
    Anyway coming back to the topic your raita looks yummy.I bought butternut squash today its huge and was wondering what dishes I can make with it,its too large just for curry.Thanks for this raita I will surely try it.

    ReplyDelete
  20. ya u did the right thing jagruti, its really very irritating if they do such thing while the movie is going on, half of the thing u dont understand actually as to whats going on in the movie only...and i love the recipe, something different and nice

    ReplyDelete
  21. U r rite, sweet heart!..i too hate people doing that..people even tell dialogue's of the upcoming scene..(they wud have come for second/third time)..this really is annoying!!..multiplexes here dont have plastic packs!,,anyways hope u liked the movie..

    Raita looks so cooling and refreshing, dear!

    ReplyDelete
  22. You did the right thing! It is so annoying when some start to tell the story to their relatives just before it all happens too!! Why bother watching when she is running a commentary! :D

    What's MNIK? I am out of touch. I watched Paa on my 60" Plasma too, much better than going to theater unless it;s like 3D movie.

    Delicious soup, great for sipping spponfuls and watching movie.

  23. Jagruti,

    what you did was absolutely correct. raita looks good. Did you like the movie. i haven't seen yet. Going to cinema hall is not possible with my little one. i will watch it my home theater when DVD comes out

    ReplyDelete
  24. Raita looks yummy ,Sad to hear about your bad day, i believe you did the rt thing.

    I had the worst experience when we were in Atlanta, the man who was sitting behind us was having a cold and he started spitting on the floor. Can you believe that,i was so irritated and just wanted to leave the place. The first thing i did after coming home was a bath with dettol.So disgusting
