Golden Fried babycorn (for a rainy sunday afternoon!) Blog marathon post 5







Though the title says it is for a rainy Sunday afternoon, you can eat it even when it does not rain. You can especially eat it when you're relaxing with a tall glass of cold beer :-) (There, that must have got your attention if you're a man reading this :-) )

It's easy-peasy to make this one. Even if you are a guy cannot cook to save your life. :-) And you don't even need any exotic ingredients. I am sure you will be having whatever this recipe needs in your kitchen.(You  might need to get the baby corns of course!) Let me tell you how to make it.
You need


  • Baby -corns: About 8 of them
  • 1 tablespoon Gram flour (besan in hindi and kadala mavu in malayalam and chonne pitti in Konkani) (I have to show off my language skills, bear with me. heee hee). In case you don't know what table-spoon is, it is the big spoon not the small one with which you stir the sugar in your tea)
  • A pinch of turmeric (Haldi in Hindi and konkani, Manjal podi in Malayalam and tamil)
  • 1 tablespoon Curd  (you don't need translations for this..It is dahi or tayiru :) )
  • 2-3 green chillies chopped very fine. If you want the person who eats it to go straight to the moon add 20-30. heee heee hee
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 teaspoon Ginger garlic paste (small spoon is teaspoon :-) )


Just mix the above ingredients and marinate the baby-corns in it. In case the term 'marinate' intimidates you, it is just a fancy way of saying, dunk the whole lot of baby corns in the mixture made of curd and besan and other stuff and leave it for about half an hour. In fact the more you leave it, better it is as the baby corns will absorb the flavour of the mixture. You can even make it in the morning and keep it in the fridge (with the baby corns marinating in them). You can adjust the amount of curd and besan according to how the mixture is looking .It should be a thick mixture.

Now just heat some oil and wait till it is really hot. Drop the baby-corns one by one (they will be having a nice coating of the mixture now)  and deep fry them till they are golden brown. Drain excess oil on a paper napkin.

Serve hot with chilli sauce.(and don;t forget the beer/tea/ vodka/whatever you prefer)
YUM!!!

Psssst: Women love men who can cook. So send her for that manicure and impress her with this dish :-) I'll tell you later how you can thank me ;-) :-)

Lots of me! An update of what I have been upto, the last two weeks.

Over the last two weeks, I have spent more time in planes, airports, cars and hotel rooms than I have at home. To say that it has been awfully hectic would understating it.
I have been travelling. A LOT. Those of you who follow my Instagram feed, would  know that I had been to Mumbai, Delhi and Jammu over the last two weeks.

In Mumbai, I had an interview with Sonali Bendre. She runs a book club called Sonali's Book Club. They pick up a book, read it, and then discuss it. I was overjoyed that she found my book fascinating. We had an in-depth conversation about the book. It was easily one of the best interviews i have had.
It was live on Facebook as well as Instagram.
In case you missed it, do watch it below:





I also had a live interaction with Midday, and FirstPost.
That was fun as well. You can watch the Firstpost one below:




In Delhi, I had a lovely interaction with InUth. They asked me if I like Durjoy or Ravinder. You can see what i answered in the below video :)

A Hundred Little Flames - Chapter 1

There were two completely unrelated incidents that happened on Sunday, which would change Ayan’s life forever.

1. He attended an office party thrown by his boss in a swanky uptown pub in Pune.
2.More than a thousand miles away, in a small village in Kerala, not identifiable by Google Maps, his grandfather had a fall.

On Monday morning, unaware of anything but the clock on his computer ticking, Ayan took a sip of the horrendous office tea with over-boiled tea leaves, too much milk and sugar. He had only forty-five minutes left before the meeting was to begin. Beads of perspiration trickled down his forehead into his eye, and he blinked. His brow furrowed, he sat hunched, with an ache in his neck, his fingers flying across the keyboard. He felt as though somebody was raining blows inside his head. His throat was parched despite the tea, and now his stomach began to feel queasy as well.
He regretted having that fourth tequila last night. But Randhir had insisted. You can hardly…
