I know this is a food blog ... am supposed to post food ... good food. Am supposed to be sweating it out in the kitchen ... dishing up goodies ... clicking snaps .... wracking my brains for a decent write .... and post it. And wait for the bouquets.
But what can I do? Am doing nothing of the sort. Am cooking the minimum ... sometimes crispy, crunchy and lip smacking deep fried stuff .... that too is devoured as soon as it is off the heat .... I don't feel like doing anything more than read and eat ..... read some more and eat .... and for a change .... eat ... and then read.
Ok ok ... maybe am exaggerating a little ... but then you do get the point, don't you? ;-)
And now .... cheating at its height .... am posting ... of all things .... a roasted corn! So c'mon all you good souls ... am ready for the brickbats.
But I really can't help it. This one thing has been my constant friend .... considering my laziness these days and my inclination to munch on something .... anything .... when with a book .... and the wet and dark weather outside making staying sane so difficult. I am having this as lunch, evening snack ... and at odd times in the weekends too. So thought of posting it. :-)
Not to mention that I can get away by writing only a little ... I really can't concentrate on anythign else when Ghulam Ali is belting out such soulful numbers. Got to give the great man some attention. ;-)
I love the sweet corn boiled and steaming hot .... with a huge dollop of butter on it. But most of the times I just roast it on an open flame .... since it is so sweet and is bursting with juices ... I do not overdo it ... just sear and char to get that burnt flavour ....
... and then rub it with a slice of lemon, sprinkle some salt and chilli powder and it is ready to be scrunched on ! :-)
So .... grab that bhutta (corn) now ... and go stand near the window or balcony and feel the cool freshness of the life giving rain on your face. And don't forget to thank god a little .... for ... well .... everything. :-)
See ya all soon ... with some very good stuff ... I promise. :-)
