Polynesian crab stack

Had this awesome Tapa (snack) in a restaurant called Roppongi yesterday. Amazing dish called Polynesian crab stack which has mango cubes, avocados and few other things listed here. A really unique dish and treat for the taste-buds.

How to make Chicken Korma (Indian cuisine) in four easy steps

Recipe :

1. Marinate Chicken with salt, chilli powder, ginger-garlic paste, Korma mix masala (spice mix) and yogurt.

2. Chop couple of onions finely. Fry them in oil with couple of red chillies and some whole spices. Once the onions start turning golden brown, turn off the heat and let them cool down a bit.

3. To this, add a cup of yoghurt and some cashews (soaked in hot water for 30 min - 1 hour) and grind the mixture to a uniform consistency.

4. Stir fry the marinated chicken for 5-10 minutes. Then add the mixture of onions and yogurt. If you need more gravy, then you may add half a cup of milk. Cook on middle to low flame for 15-20 minutes. Add little bit of lemon juice before serving. The Safed (white) Chicken Korma is ready!

Let them drink...

Found this in today's Mid-Day. If Queen Marie were alive, she'd have perhaps said 'If they have no water, then let them drink coke!'

Received this image from a friend recently, which shows the sorry state of birth-place of Shivaji Maharaj. If Maharashtra government would spend 1% of the money on taking care of historical places of what it otherwise spends on erecting statues of Shivaji and renaming every nook and corner after him; then that would be a true memorial for coming generations. Otherwise all they are likely to see is 'Vasu loves Sapna' and its many versions.
