Maya and I shopped at Bangalore‘s ITC Outlet MG Rd., planning this SURPRISE & COMFORT FOOD PARTY for our neighbours The Kumars : Saturday night. I hope this works. They lost their little ‘ cart’ restaurant to a large Mall : this is our gesture to make them want to start over. So:
We got a Mini van, the one Maya’s uncle does not use now( used to be a mobile library). No, we cannot cook as well as our neighbours, nor have the time but there’s our Secret , a well Preserved secret – easy to do in minutes, and taste like Palace fare :
( Plenty na ? But how else to impress the Kumars into business ? Maybe small servings of each, is what we can handle: )
One could make this also a whole Table spread Gourmet style, and it would taste as tantalising. The curries turn out authentic ‘ Dum”, Dharbari, Dakshin and Delicious. Flirting with senses, literally, turning nervous cooks like me into Sassy Chefs in minutes.
(If my friend sings ” KOI mil gaya..” one more time, I’ll thunk her with her apron 🙂 but she’s sweet, my friend Maya with the uncle who lent us his van. Am hoping this will be a good surprise dinner and inspire our neighbours to think ” Palace” even if it’s on uncle’s wheels for starters).
I do have another ‘ day’ coming up for a mixed marriage event, but the very SAME MENU AS HERE- and I thought this was just about writing a Post (happy sigh, you’d think I was this great Gourmet cook, na ? But KOI is fun, and I get away with a nice change from 9-5 -9 living !) Our Great Big Indian Kitchens sure turn out to be Chef of Hearts : click on ‘Chef ‘here for typical Gourmet mixed marriage hungamma 🙂
Thank you Kitchens of India for being there. Yeah you’re good to Paupers and Kings !
( Love KOI’s Gifts,“ and Offers. ” Mango Chutney” is going to be their Fav ! They are Chutney/Pickle people, our Kumars. If this evening goes well, maybe they will think of a Chef of Hearts event later.
