My culinary exploits

I am a living organism...
I need food to survive...
I live alone...
I dont like outside/tiffin food...
The idea of cooking appeals to me...

The above is a sequential deduction of the outcome...that i cook :)

Now many people would say...except the last two reasons....tiffin or outside food would suffice and be much more convenient for a bachelor living alone in Dwarka...

Now in Dwarka sector 19, outside food is not much of an option, and tiffin i just came to know about yesterday...
but the last reason is strong enough to negate these possibilities

So i cook...
now i cook once for 2 days....also keep supplies like cup noodles for days when i dont have time to cook...
but having said that...i have started cooking...

so what all do i make...rather try to make...and the results...
a. rice - half cooked
b. dal - too cooked
c. aloo palak - came out well, except that i didnt wash the palak properly, so it was a bit "sandy" :(
d. rajma - cooked n all fine, but added too much water n too late, so it was rajma AND water
e. gobi and baingan - made baingan kurma (south indian mix veggies where the veggies are kind of pasty....why...coz i boiled the gobi and cabbage too long
f. mixed veggies - comes out well :D
g. veggie pasta - really tasty and hot (this is not the ready to cook pasta...though pasta intrinsically is kind of ready to cook
h. maggie, soup, ready to cook pasta etc

am i missing something...dont think so...haan...omlette, burji...come out pretty well

in the next couple of weeks...will make chicken...also bisse beli bhaat, lemon rice

bahut maza aata hai khud khaana banake khaane mein ... also long term mein...baad mein khaana ke saath bartan kapde dhone padenge...to abhi se sahi :o)

having said that....its pretty enjoyable....checking out recipes online...n then trying to cook them
some good websites are: vahrevah.com, manjula's kitchen, recipedelight.com
and there are many others, i usually browse these

till the next post....adios

A small piece of advice though - just don't doze off while you are cooking. The food will get burnt.
