Whenever I plan a do or a party,the one thing that I positively need to keep me going is to have fun in cooking my food,sometimes it’s not the cooking but the plating or presentation that brings so much joy…especially with simple foods and time tested combinations that most people enjoy like the wheat uppma and curd combo with a bite of vadumangai (tiny green mango) pickle…so why not present it in a chefy avatar…I enjoyed assembling it and loved the reactions of my guests even more…a discerning group of foodies and very good cooks,they have been masters of food flavours for decades and their childlike excitement so touched me to my very soul ! It was truly a pleasure cooking for such lovely human beings !
So,my suggestion is,if you are planning a party,add a dish or two which you are sure of the flavour combos and present it in such a way ,that it makes for a great conversation piece and is delicious at the same time…brings an element of cheer to your food table and that’s all a host wants,happy guests !
This little shot glass is filled with a layer of wheat uppma,curd,chopped vadumanga pickle and a piece of roasted pappad…I was unsure if it would turn out all right after having refrigerated it for a few hours…it was perfect !!!!….so I decided to share it with you !
I’m sure all of you who read this will have ideas of your own…please do send me your comments,I would love to hear from you all,on my blog…your texts and phone calls are very welcome….I would also like to hear from you on PINK LEMON TREE.
