….to the Master Chefs.
Forks and Knives
Are your wives
Pans and Cauldrons
You call them your sons
Plates and Bowls
You play with them
Chopper the lopper
Your own daughter…
Serve, you do that pretty well
The smile on those satiated faces makes your heart sing ‘Jingle bells’…
Have had this obssession for perfectly hand chopped food stuff…The other day chopped some veggies for mama…Was wondering where that obssession came from…Then came the answer… TV shows… Have seen chefs chop away the most difficult to chop veggies with such an ease…. Whew!!!
This post is an ode to the Master Chefs of the world…R, Kylie Kwong, Tarla Dalal, Chef Sultan…. hmmm all of them… Mama… the greatest of them all!!!
The other day Skeets took the metro from North Delhi (Vishwavidyalya to be precise)…went to office (Central Delhi)…finished work and off to Dilli Haat in an auto. That was travelling from one end of Delhi to the other…whew! Skeeter’s first in a few months…
It was the last day of the Teej Mela at Dilli Haat..Did a round of the place and went to INA market opposite Dilli iHaat…You get everything from Shhitake mushrooms, bell peppers, red chillies (small ones which are not available with the neighbourhood veggie vendors these days), Bok Choy…you name it…love the variety and the freshness….
Apart from other stuff, Skeets got home Australian grapes…and made Grape Yoghurt…Here’s how:
Slice/chop(as you wish) 3-4 Australian grapes
Beat the yoghurt(1 BOWL), add 2-3 spoons of milk
If your health and weight permit, add half a tablespoon of powdered sugar to the yoghurt
Then, add the sliced/chopped grapes
For the garnishing, place the sliced/chopped grapes on the top as well(see pic)
You can add any fresh fruit of the season that you like in the same manner as above and if you have that kind of time,you can puree the fruit and mix it with beaten yoghurt. It will taste like the flavoured yoghurt available in the market.
