My Not so Perfect Culinary Skills add Spice to my Perfect Love Story courtesy TinyOwl


Hola My Precious Readers!

Narrating to you today about my biggest Food-fix of all times and how an ultimate savior of the current day would have averted my worries way back then...


Marriages are undoubtedly made in Heaven no matter they are love or arranged or by God's grace both, like ours.....but unfortunately not the eating habits of the two families....who too are united in a marriage!


And so is our case, while I belong to Vegetarian Baniya family my hubby darling's family is a pure non-vegetarian Kaistha one...where the culinary skills of the daughter-in-law are tested by getting a non-vegetarian dish prepared by her, as a compulsory tradition, post wedding...


While the love of my life has been training me for this and many other rituals for some months now after office hours, so that I impress his family and no questions are raised at his choice of life partner...it was not coming easy for me....for, first and foremost I have always been a struggler cook and cooking non-vegetarian delicacies was incomprehensible for me even further, forget about my comfort zone...




'S' (That's how I address my precious half for a decade now) was being extremely patient with me and I genuinely wanted to do this and acquire if not the expertise but certain basic standards in cooking the same....What a weird test of love it was...but as is said, "Love is Blind" !

Like I told you, our's was a love cum arranged marriage and you can understand the tremendous pressure we were in to be able to satisfy everyone who have agreed to our decision.....


Finally the D-day arrived, a couple of days after our wedding and I must say S's Family was extremely kind to me with my elder brother-in-law even helping me in the kitchen as the ladies were suppose to stay out of kitchen for this ritual..I remember making "Kasuri -Methi Chicken" and it smelled really good...




My heart was content with the aroma and I was just about to serve it, when my parents arrived with my maternal uncle and aunt...



Alas, I knew they would freak out at the smell of non-vegetarian food even.. but not utter a word in reverence to "Ladkewaale family" though...at the same time, I remember I had not cooked any vegetarian dish..so what must I serve my parents and relatives...This was the biggest food fix I have ever been into...An amateur cook in me has just battled to make a non-vegeratian delicacy and have still not sailed through it that a new test has baffled me...I tried to relax...reminding myself of Dr. Asthana's laughter therapy of MunnaBhai MBBS :D




I have often been in such fire-fighting situations at work and had come our with crazy solutions..so I immediately started evaluating the options at hand without loosing time...At the spur of the moment it struck me that "Kadhi" is the most savored dish at my mom's home...I pulled out a bowl of curd from refrigerator and instead of wasting time making pakodis, made "Onion Green-Chilli Stir Fried Kadhi" as quickly as I could...Undoubtedly , I used all my sincerity and dedication to cook this one too guys, in double pressure (Grin!!)...



By this time 'S' walked into the kitchen and wiped those drops of sweat on my face for he knew how I struggled cooking and here I was doing it all ,that too clad in a Saree and heavy Jewelry...His unspoken love and trust as always boosted my confidence and that was all I needed that moment!

The dining table was soon laid...his parents and my parents both liked what I had prepared for them with so much love and respect and I was bestowed with so many blessings alike from both sides...'S' and I stole a love-glance at each other, his mission has been accomplished and my oh-so-perfect cook hubby has finally infused some culinary creativity to his new wifey too :) :)


To my surprise, my hard-core non-vegetarian In-laws loved my "Onion Green-Chilli Kadhi" so so much that even till the present day, after almost a decade of our wedding, too, whenever I am travelling to Allahabad, they insist I make my special Kadhi! 

Today, whenever I remember that incident, I can't help smiling back! How I held my heart in my mouth, and left no stone un-turned to come to everyone's entire satisfaction!!

I Wish I had a Wonderful App like TinyOwl, those days even, to order yummy food of my choice almost instantaneously and that too with fabulous discounts (which come from time to time), from a restaurant in my area that is best as per users ratings <3

You can download the Impressive TinyOwl App here : Android and iOS...It is definitely worth a try and I bet once you use it, you won't live without it...



For us our TinyOwl acts as a Blessing in Disguise  for Hubby Darling now doesn't need to spend hours grooming me in Kitchen rather Order food from Bed and spend together some Cozy Perfect Moments <3 ! Sometimes, I feel my not so perfect culinary skills, thus add spice to our otherwise perfect love story :) ... 





My Little TinyOwl also saves me when I have a series of guests at home and makes me spread my smiles of contentment and no worries....


We have been using it for sometime now and love it features..while it is capable of automatically picking up the area we are in, we can effortlessly swipe through to order a Pizza or Pasta, Chinese or Mughlai ...all from our home....in exact delivery times monitored on this awesomazing App..we have thus forgotten the long waiting times and traffic woes to reach our favorite restaurant...rather love to relish our favorite cuisines at home, over a movie...what more, we even earn some Tiny owl cash and free meals as our referral joins this lovely App and enjoy the same as well....




Ah! Ah! Ah! Gone are the days of my Food Fixes
