Food makes the world go round.
Okay, maybe just my world.
I love getting lost in the kitchen baking cookies and cakes for tea or cooking up something new that my friends and family get to quality test. They love the trials most of the time, except for when they complain that I’m fattening them up.
They don’t have to eat it, do they?
They just can’t stop themselves. Seriously, who’s fault is it? Theirs or mine?
If you don’t want to get fat, just take a bit and leave it. You don’t have to come back for seconds.
Anyways, back to food. I’ve learned a lot from my mom. We grew up sitting on the paaneri (platform) stirring marzipan and vanilla cream since we were barely 5 year old kids. And learning how to bake semolina cakes and fry potatoes and make a yummy chicken khudi. Or a chicken roast. Mom’s chicken roast stuffed with liver pudding is so yummy. Remind me to put down the recipe one of these days.
And I love the way mom cooks. Food never tastes the same twice. It’s always throw approximately the same things together to make approximately the same dish. It’s almost like being Alice in Wonderland. Sis and me have learned to cook like mom. Just throw things together and it tastes awesome!
But what was I talking about?
I’ve put down a few of mom’s recipes. And I’ve got my friends to put down some of theirs too. Smile, grin, smile!
