My Kitchen disaster!
Almost everybody would have surely came accross a disaster in kitchen in their life...Me too have several disasters...But when Kribha tagged me for MY KITCHEN DISASTER...started by Lakshmi, I thought I will share you all with a strange one...I think nobody b4 would have gone through ...like this...
It all became a disaster coz of two things...One is my laziness and the other is my forgetfulness!!
Its a usual thing for me that, every 4 days once or like that, I will make curd and use it for 4-5 days keeping it in fridge.Just like that one day I was so lazy and tired, that I didn't wanted to wash the vessel after boiling the milk..so what I did, I directly put the CHOMBU with milk (The vessel which I usually pour milk after boiling),on the smallest burner I am having and simmered as much as possible.
Then I went to browse for sometime ...I thought ,after some time I can switch off the stove...As usual, after starting browsing, I forgot the milk kept...So what happened?
There was a thick milk cream layer(Paal aadai we call in tamil) formed at the top of the milk , which prevented even overflowing...and as time went ...BLAST!!
There was a pressure developed inside that layer with steam,as i didn't stirred at all and because of the narrow neck.. and the milk splattered all over the walls,ceiling and every where around the stove..
For a moment when I heard the blast sound, I had no idea and then slowly I recognized the reason!!
After that I always give a special attention for boiling milk..coz its very dangerous indeed if we forget milk in stove..as it may even put off your gas stove,which may be even more dangerous..!!
Now a days I always use a broad vessel for boiling milk,with several stirring in between or boil in a jar in microwave oven;D
Here is the picture of the vessel (Chombu)I used that day, for boiling milk :D
Blogging have bought me so many friends around here...I have been tagged for this Meme by Kelly mahoney of Kelly the culinarian ,a journalism student who have started a food blog to try a hand in cooking also...
Here are some 5 Q's ..by which you can know a better me:D
1 How long have you been blogging?
My blog is hardly 2 and a half months old!!!
2 What inspired you to start a blog and who are your mentors?
As I had a very little cooking experience before marriage and after marriage,when it came a situation that I have to start regular cooking for my own family ...My hubby , my kid and for my self, and being abroad..I can't call my mother or my Mother In Law or anybody for each and every thing..so Internet was my only thing I had in my hands,than any cookbooks...
So first I was googling for the recipes and running my life for a year and slowly I came to know about food blogs...
I find food blogs having somany advantages like-- step by step presentation...;some people are reviewing the recipes and not only reviewing/commenting..;also trying and giving feed back to the recipes posted..
So,I fell for food blogs !!
I know Prema's cookbook and Kajal dreams before I started blog of my own...!I found on premas cookbook for most of the recipes that i searched for ...and Kajal dreams..!!!Wow!I loved her step by step neat presentation with photos... as far as food and recipes are concerned.!!
So , one fine day , I too got an idea of starting my own food blog...so that I can record my cooking in kitchen and share my version of recipes with all of you...as everybody have their own way of cooking.!!
