I think I could whisk batter for some absolutely scrumptious, yet healthy oatmeal cake.
I’ve been ‘feeding on’ a lot of cookery shows lately:
‘Passion’ (NDTV Good Times)-
Ritu Dalmia is the flamboyant, chirpy, tomboy restaurateur who prepares and peps up as much ‘dark and devious passion in the kitchen’ as one would want to weave in bed! She’s the true-blue, cocky-cookie, sunny-side up Indian DIVA! (This is incidentally the name of her restaurant)
Believe me, she helps you get great IN BED-oops, I meant great breakfast, lunch and dinner IN BED!
‘Top Chef’ (AXN) –
Do you know what Padma Lakshmi (Top Chef’s host) and Salman Rushdie have in common?
They both were married to each other,
They both divorced each other,
They both are award winning writers (Did you know of Padma’s award-winning "Easy Exotic" cookbook)
I love ‘Top Chef’ signature contestant catfights, knife knots, pataka food and reality-saliva-dribbling cooking.
Reserving a table at ‘No Reservations’ (by the H.O.T. Anthony Bourdain), figuring out that ‘Cooking isn’t rocket Science’ (by Manju Malhi), and living like life was nothing but ‘A matter of taste’ (by Vir Sanghvi) are the other things I’ve been doing as well.
TONGUE-IN-CHEEK! cooks or looks?
Oats, egg white and a bowl definitely have tickled my taste-buds enough.
So is this about a ‘healthy bhi, tasty bhi’ cake?
This is not about the TONGUE, the taste-buds, the food pipe or the rectum.
This is about the CHEEK, the face, the glow and the WOW!!!
HEAD-TURNER, BLACK HEAD-REMOVER!
I’m talking about a miracle face-pack that lends you that absolutely fresh look. Many people you know for a very long time, actually look at you face for the first time. ( first hand experience)
1. Get a bowl.
2. Crack an egg on the top, and drain out only the egg-white (albumen)
3. Add two tablespoons of Oats.
4. Stir the mixture,
5. Apply it on your face.
6. Leave it until it dries.
7. Wash off with water.
The process is a little sticky, but it’s a stickler for fresh-facedness, if I may call it that.
And people, you can also get rid of your blackheads, and get heads to take a spin at you!
‘RAISE A ( an EGG) TOAST AND A FEW PEGS TO EGGS’
You may end up smelling a little rotten, but as they say
‘NO GAIN WITHOUT PAIN’.
