100th blog post is it ??? Yes, it is :)
I started my blog to actually stop my addiction to playing Farmville on Facebook and to dedicate time to something interesting.It took me a year to hit my 100th blog post. Apart from giving me a platform to showcase my cooking, it has given me an identity as a writer and a food lover.
I have started liking blogging about food because this is something I love to do. I share my family recipes and also the recipes that I innovate in my kitchen. Prawns Chilly mentioned in this post is something delicious and finger licking that I innovated in my kitchen. I know that to be a good cook, you should innovate and learn. Learn from others and innovate by applying your own thoughts.
My family also has started recognising my talent and they too help me with innovative ideas.
My mom keeps giving me unique tips about food to share on my blog and the facebook page.
My colleague who shares my cubicle in office, keeps saying that I have a lot of patience to cook, decorate, click and share. She keeps admiring my skill. There are many more fans. Still I do not blog seriously. I just dedicate 1 hour per week to my blog. Rest of the time I keep for myself and my day to day chores.
Check the Prawns Chilly recipe below which I innovated in my kitchen. A picture speaks 1000 words. The dish had turned so yummy, that even the picture of it makes me eat it :)
2 onions/ spring onion whites
6-7 pods of garlic
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon chilly sauce
1 chicken Maggi cube
De-shell the prawns and marinate them by applying 1/2 tsp chilly powder, 1/2 tsp turmeric powder and 1/2 tsp salt.
Cut the capsicum into 1/2 inch cubes.
Chop the onions and tomatoes fine.
Make paste out of the garlic or chop it fine.
In kadai, add 2 tablespoons of oil, fry onions, when they turn brownish,add garlic and tomatoes. When the tomatoes turn mushy, add capsicum and the marinated chopped prawns.
Let them get cooked for a while.
Now add the sauces and the Maggi cube and mix well.
Garnish with chopped coriander or serve as it is.
Serve with rice or chapatis.
