Exploring the kitchen...!! :)

Well yes indeed..I should have named this post - A newly discovered place @ my home ;).....!
I remember even a month before marriage,I was like this lazy goose not even planning to explore the kitchen in my house.Mom must have been almost fed up scolding me and advising me that I need to learn some good culinary skills and get to do some work in kitchen...I somehow used to believe that "Necessity is the mother of invention"hence would somehow convince myself that I will learn when I need and will do when it matters :)

Thus,began my new journey to an undiscovered place in my home! I call it 'undiscovered' because I have realised that this place is one of the best places for the lady @ home..Its in this place I have discovered other skills in myself(Self-praise No:1).....;) Actually speaking I myself am surprised @ the amazing skills I have in preparing dishes! (Self-praise No:2) . I remember when I was small and even when I grew up I used to feel sad..for what??..sad for the chicken when my mom used to prepare...I used to have this dumb thought when I was small that the chick's parents/siblings must be missing it @ their home (chicken's home :) ).....I used to never enter the kitchen whenever mom would be cleaning the raw chicken;but .....would be happily feasting on it once prepared ;)...Yummm Yummm...slurp! slurp!!..WoWW!!! :))... But now I can consider myself an excellent cook in preparing chicken items(Self-praise No:3) :) Now I happily clean it and wash it well and then prepare the yummm stuff;...the only thing is that the disease has been transferred to my hubby,now he never enters whenever I am cleaning the chicken but loves it once prepared...ha ha :)

I still know that I need to excel myself in vegetarian items....Ahh there's still time ;) moroever I have this feeling that basics in cooking is to learn veggie items and Advanced C++ is learning non-veg items am sure I have graduated in cooking good food(Self-praise No:4) !

The next item I love to make is idly-chutney [Fast and soo simple to make ...he he he ;)] I rememeber once I happen to speak out some rubbish to my friends ;)..Instead of mentioning that idly's get overheated ,I said "Idly's turn BLACK"..Boy o Boy then started leg-pulling.....I wanted to explain something but it turned out to be something else ...since then my friends started questioning abt my so-called black idly's :'( ... Hmmmmmm foolish me :)
Apart from idly's I love to make sambhar tooo...the nice aromatic dish made with freshly prepared anu-made-sambhaar masala powder simply tastes yummm!! (Self-praise No:5)

Apart from the above I would also like to mention my few new short term discoveries --- pizzas/vadas/paneer chilly/chinese manchurian! I call them short term coz I prepared them for the first and last time :) (Self-praise No:....? lost count ;))!

Given a day in kitchen I guess one can experiment many many new things and feast in them as well !Now I have gradually developed a liking towards exploring various dishes ....and finally what matters for me is when Vivek says - Anu,the food is edible ;) I simply loved what u prepared :)
