Yesterday he googled for "Chicken Manchurian" and found 2 recipes. He bought all ingredients of both the recipes and was getting confused with both. One minute, he says he'll follow Recipe 1 and in the second minute, he'll switch over to Recipe 2. Finally I had to intervene for him to finalise. Ha, I forgot to say, I had been banished from my Kitchen as soon as he decided to take over.
But far from what I had thought, the dish came out so good that I was left licking my fingers and even forgot to have the accompanying rice. Laajawaab, meri Jaan... Masha Allah...
Today again he wanted to make the same thing and he had a reason too. His best friend from College is leaving Bangalore for Delhi by mid- December. So he wanted to impress him as well. Okay, go ahead. But I warned him - "Oru vattam chakka veenu muyalu chathu ennu vechu, eppazhum eppazhum chavumennu vichaarikkalle!"
This time the quantity was more and there was time constraint as well. But still I didn't go in to mess up his creation. By the way, why should I? He called me a mere soldier while he termed himself as Emperor in cooking. Ahaaa... So me who cooks everyday made a fool out of myself with all my efforts. Hmph!
This time, something was lacking. God knows what it is. Though it was awesome , it lacked the grandeur of its predecessor.
Anyways his efforts paid off. his friend was amazed .
All's good that ends well...
That's what he made- Chicken Manchurian
