Hey All, I am Shrot kanojia studying in Euro school a 9th Grader. Guess what just entered my teens !!! the exclamation because suddenly everyone has started saying,”you are a teenager now”, what are you going to do in life ? I love taking these questions with a Smile.Cooking is my hobby and i wish to cook like my grandfather.
Cooking for my friends and family
Herein i am sharing about by hobby of cooking. I love cooking and have great fun in cooking for my friends and family.I believe i have inherited the habit of cooking from my grandparents, especially from grandpa who believed in cooking food on his own. My parents say, he was an amazing cook. Everything he cooked was delicious. His hands were magical. Cooking is my hobby and i wish to cook like my grandfather.
One day , my hobby will be my career and will ensure that I take cooking to the next level of tastebuds of many foodies across the globe.
My mom says I need to concentrate on my basic studies and hence no cooking classes, whatever is available resources I need to use them for making the tasty dishes. Cooking with limited resources is challenging however, i love challenges and try to make the best of out of what ever is available.
Mom is the Best Critic
She is damn strict with me cleaning the kitchen and also doesn’t think even once when she has to be a critic.I have been trying my hands on baking cakes, mousse, brownies in the pressure cooker as I don’t have a OTG. It has turned out to be soft yummy and tasty. Last time i tried Red velvet case but oopsss it burnt and the “Red cake turned into Black cake”. Homemade chocolates are another thing I love to make in different moulds.
With the spreading Corona virus, we are all locked down at home and praying that our nation and the world together find vaccine that can cure all. I decided to keep myself busy by making or rather trying a lot of new dishes.
Makhana Chikki, Rasmalai, Nankatais & Pasta
To build up my confidence, I thought of trying some Indian & Chinese dishes like Makhana Chikki for all the healthy people in the house, Rasmalai with no colouring or preservatives, Nankatais in a idli stand, kya kare mummy ka beta hoon na ‘jo hai usi se kaam chalao’, White sauce pasta, Veg Manchurian and fried rice, mum was busy playing cards as she had got holiday from making dinner. To highlight this when the entire social media was going a big GAGA about DALGONA cake i was just thinking.
LOCKDOWN BIRTHDAY & Dalgona Cake
Good Luck or bad luck i think i should be positive,my birthday was on 6th April. no friends no movie, no Outings, nothing to order from out … CAKE to chaiye … mum can’t bake so I decided to go one level up and baked a DALGONA Chocolate Creamy Coffee cake.
Trust me, it was too good. Remember my dad is a miser on sharing his compliments and my mom is a Critic so imagine. However, it was a different ball game this time. They both loved it and we enjoyed the birthday cake. My mum is a social human and she just loves posting my dishes on her Status /facebook or Insta and when she gets compliments she feels accomplished.
I would love to get compliments from her but my dad says “Its my mom citrics that helps me improve and also build confidence. Deep inside i know mom likes by dishes, i know her taste buds.I am blessed to have mom and dad who keep motivating me on trying new things.but not at the cost of my school studies.
Chocolate stall was a HIT at my mom office
Having a chocolate stall was a HIT at my mom office. I have heard people saying “Charity begins at home” My first earning of this sale was donated to a NGO by me.To summarise, I urge of the readers and my friends to make the best use of this time. Lets us all try new things and build our skills. If you want to know the recipes, you can write to me on firstname.lastname@example.org
