Page 1 of 1

i too have a palate for good,scrumptious food...though i do not cook except boiled eggs;a cup of tea and hey now i can make an omelette too without it sticking to the pan ..

by the way i like reading vir sanghvi's rude food;he is a fine connoiseur; it really makes u feel hungry after all;and the next thing after i read that is ...i have to go scavenging for something to eat...:popcorn:

Talking abt cooking....

Over da weekend, i decided to eat only healthy food...paneer went into da bin, n tofu replaced it...i was might impressed with myself...

but gosh i opened the outer cover of the tofuuu....n gosssh does it stink or does it stink?...why doesnt it stink in restaurants? :((

tht went into the bin too...and yea it managed too put me off food for 2 days (so it was no food rather than no bad food) 😞

ingradients:

cut vegetables:

cucumber, skinned, cut into thin slices... 1/2 a cup
carrot: long thin slices.... 1/2 a cup
cabbage: cut into square peices... 1/2 a cup
beans: cut into slightly long pieces.... 1/2 a cup
green bell pepper (Capsicum): cut into square pieces... 1/2 a cup
big onion: cut into square pieces - one, medium size

garlic: chopped - three four flakes
ginger: chopped- amount to match garlic

Prawns:

cleaned.. cut into two, if they are king size... 1/4 cup

preparation:

use a medium size non-stick frying pan (we want to keep the usage of oil to bear minimum). heat couple of teaspoons cocunut oil. add chopped ginger and garlic... saut till u get a cool aroma and flavour... add the cut prawns and stir fry for a couple min under low fire... add vegetables... saut... add maggi chicken cubes, enough to taste... continue to saut... add couple teaspoons soya sacue... stir... the vegetables and the prawns shoud be done correctly... dont over cook.. sprinkle some sault, enough to tatse... add ground black pepper, just springle all over... saut..... spinkle a bit of vinegar... saut and remove from fire...

this is a balanced and neat side dish for noodles, bread etc...
try this out...:-)

Well one of my interests also comprise of cooking but i really got serious abt it because of CAT :shock: Actually one in an XLRI interview the panel castigated me on "reading books" as hobby.

I thought i better find an alternative which is not a stong point for male genre....also i was cooking for some time after coming into job..so thought of taking it up....Otherwise i never thpught in my dreams i will read a cooking book

Being a vegetarian i like cooking vegetarian dishes, speciality being Paav Bhaaji...

Let me know in case u want to share the recipes with an amateur....

hi..

been waiting to post this topic for long.. my hobbies have always been a bit off track.. of course, i fit in the conventional lines too.. me an avid reader and loves music.. but if you ask me about my favourite hobby, the one which am so passionate about, pat 'll come the reply: i love cooking.. whatever be the dish, am so meticulous right from choosing the ingradients, cooking, garnishing and finally presenting it on the table...

well, onto the dishes i cook.. i specialise in traditional kerala dishes (hey... only non-veggies, veg is not my take:-).. puliyitta meen kari, kozhi kari, pothirachi ularthiyathu et. al are my favourites.. i also prepare biriyani and fried rice for guests... sundays are always special for me, thats when i get a bit of free time to lay my hands on culinary art...

being a father of two lovely kids adds to the joy of cooking..of late, it is only ice creams, puddings and various shakes... my daughter doesnt eat ice creams outside.. she is kinda craving for papa's specialties... thats the best part, cooking for ur little ones.. i know, there may not be a dad or mom in this forum.. still, you would apreciate the feeling..

all those connoisseurs out there, lets share our ineterest in the culinary art.. any dish... starting from traditionals to exotic italian, spanish dishes...

PS: my wife is my biggest supporter (of my CAT adventure too:-) and the kids are my critics:-)
