The original Ra 'One

The Ten Heads of Raavan
It's sometimes such fun to watch these on TV. And it's a wonder that TV channels still show these priceless movies/series. The viewership of the old archives is going down. Someday or the other, I guess, they will stop showing them. Good that we have Youtube, where we can just find anything from the past.

Babycorn manchurain: The cook returns

The first try

The wife wanted something spicy and something different. I insisted on Chicken Manchurian. But being a vegetarian, she discarded the idea. I still wanted something close to that. Tried Babycorn Manchurian for the first time, and I would give it a rating of 11/10.

The wife says its better than the best that she has had ever. I know what that means. She wants me to prepare the next time as well.

Evening snacks and weekend, and a really old Bollywood flick

The Taste of India
They don't look like samosas. But, believe me, they are. And fried papads, dhaniya chutney and ginger tea. On a rainy evening weekend, what more do you need? The TV was playing some old movie. Govinda's and Kader Khan's double role. Don't remember the name.

Lost travellers

Gone for a swim
Hmmm. Someone left their belongings went went away for rafting, or swimming perhaps. I hope she still remembers where she had kept these after they return. These were lying unattended at the riverside.

Cheese Cake (Chenna Poda)

Odiya Sweet Dish
This sweet cake is an Odiya speciality. I just loved this when i was a child. And whenever it rains, the child in me comes out to play. I tried this for the first time, and it wasn't too bad. Actually, it was quite good for a first timer.

Chenna Poda: Means "Burnt Cheese Cake". By the way, according to history, Rasogulla, was another Odiya delicacy, first made here. But with time, people have been attributing the origins of this sweet to West Bengal. If you are travelling to Odissa, don't forget to taste a few Rasogullas. Not the canned ones. The originals, are a lot softer than what you might have normally tasted. And you might bot believe me, but you won't get those original Rasogullas anywhere else.

Enough. Let me enjoy my Chenna Poda first.
