cooking experiments


Cooking is an art. All the good cooks out there  I salute you. I wonder how you mix all those ingredients in correct proportion and miraculously turn them into yummy food .I think God forgot to incorporate the cooking gene when He made me.

I am the kind of person who read  recipes from cook books and net; imagine myself preparing them  and thinks that making food is super easy. But when theory session turns into practical the real trouble begins…The food I prepare never fits into the class ‘edible‘.

I try the same recipes with the exact amount of ingredients but something or the other happens and everything would turn out into one big mess.

So last day I tried my luck with the newly created interest for cooking.A beginner like me should have tried out something easy but I headed  straight for the chicken curry –a person who doesn’t know the ABC of cooking trying luck with chicken . 😀

Image I found this cartoon pic over the net,may be we (me and the poor chicken ) would have looked like this during the process .

With the recipe handed by mom,I started my battle with chicken, onions and all other stuff that I don’t remember exactly  right now. Within an hour or two it turned out into something that resembled sambar.The gravy was somewhat ok but I had added too much spices  and the chicken was floating in the gravy like it had no connection with the curry.I need to say that our kitchen turned out messier than the dish I prepared.  Mom was complaining about the way the kitchen looked after my cooking experiments but she was happy that I the took effort to learn cooking 🙂


Never mind this was the 1st time,next time I will try some basic easy dish and turn it into a huge hit and  oh  yea without making the kitchen messy 😀
