The Kitchen Laboratory

If you're staying outside India, food will definitely be one of your major expenses. So under this assumption we started our research strongly in the kitchen lab (instead of the DSP lab where we were intended to do so :-) ), and have been cooking well for some time now.

Ofcourse, the main thing is that when u cook it, whatever it is, tastes good. Here are some pics of what turned up at our latest experiment. It was (supposed to be like) Sambhar saadam. Theres some potato fries for company too.

One thing I learnt after coming here, even more than my college life, was to respect Mom's cooking. The first day we experimented with Rice and one easy curry we took around 2.5 whole hours to cook it! Its better now, but now I understand how much our mothers put in for us just by cooking 1 or even 2 curries for us daily.

Anyways, I guess 4 years is a long time, I have quite a lot of papers to present in this vast unexplored world of cooking :-)

Please check the point on Gastronomical Singularities.
Since this is your first paper in the Int. J. Culinary Technology (I hope there isn't one), please add this to your reference list.

And now, you'll have me forever guessing what's cooking :-P

I'm yet to taste my own cooking, except for some noodles, bullseye's n occasional dosa cooking i do, i'm nt at all into cooking. Call me a chauvinst or whatever but i'm always of the belief that it's a woman's thing. So waiting for my wife to cook me some delicious food.
