Self-editing is a must for all writers. After finishing my first draft and even while writing my draft, I run through many revisions. A great book for self-editing is Self-Editing for Fiction Writers. This book and other resources will give you plenty of pointers on what to look for while revising your manuscript.
I also believe that each author has her own quirks while writing first draft and things that she may forget to take care of. These quirks will not be spelled out in any book. These are things for us to remember for ourselves. What I really find useful is keeping a revision checklist that I keep updating as and when I come across any quirk of mine. This running checklist is a great resource for me to feel confident that I have taken care of things.
I had the entire bottle of soy sauce sitting in my refrigerator and I wanted to make good use of it….So I decided to give Thai fried rice a shot yesterday. It’s quite simple to make; as long as you use plenty of basil and your favorite veggies, it will turn out good. My family loves Thai Iced Tea and we had a great meal yesterday with fried rice and Thai Iced tea to complement it.
Yesterday, I was in an indulging mood and cooked my favorite dish, Navratan Korma. It is quite simple to make and yet very delicious; serves best with pooris.
All you have to do is saute onions and tomatoes (optionally add some tomato sauce); add salt and your favorite Indian spices (I prefer kitchen king masala) ; Mix in all the veggies (potatoes, corn, peas, cauliflower, carrots, paneer and cashews). Pour in heavy whipping cream and cook till the veggies are tender and the gravy gets thick. Garnish with coriander in the end.
