I am always amazed at my wife’s ability to cook many exciting dishes simultaneously when she’s in the kitchen.
I am not a cook, but I have the passion for it. My focus is to make exotic, traditional and healthy items. And I used to do that by making one item once in a while.
Yesterday I decided to make a change. To do a multitasking, like my wife. And here’s the result.
1. Hulled barley boiled, 2. Chakkakuru mezhukkupuratty and 3. A copy of manga thera.
With health in focus and since the usual grains like wheat and rice are unhealthy, I followed expert advice and made barley rice. It’s almost like boiled brown rice with a welcome nutty taste.
Chakkakuru mezhukkupuratty is as traditional as karimeen fry to a Keralaite. This dish of jackfruit seeds is so very good.
And manga thera (Mango Bars) is the most exotic and time consuming item. Here’s a quick fix, just to prove that next summer, I could be making the weeks long process of real manga thera.
On the whole a very satisfying day of multitasking in cooking.
