Culinary Delight

Sometimes I surpass myself.

Doesn’t this chicken look delicious? I thought it did – it tasted just as good, too. Yeah, I know I shouldn’t be saying it myself, but you see, there wasn’t anyone else around to say it for me.

Sunday evening. Alone. Amit travelling. Yeah, again. I wasn’t much in the mood to cook, naturally. Still, it was Sunday and there was some chicken. So – a simple grilled chicken, even grilled in curd, seemed too boring. Curry, then? I reluctantly chopped an onion, tomato, a load of garlic, a tiny sliver of ginger (all I could find in the fridge), added a lot of peppercorn and a bit of cinnamon, and tossed it all into the pan. When it began to stick and burn, I added the chicken. When that began to stick and burn, I scraped out the leftovers of the twins’ special full-fat yoghurt (Nandini’s – it is really delicious) and threw that in as well. Oh, and, somewhere along the way, I added all the powders, of course – jeera, dhania, haldi (cumin, coriander, turmeric) and a bit of Bolst’s curry powder. Salt – goes without saying. To my surprise, it turned out way better than the “passable” I’d thought I was heading for. I’m good!
