Madurai Uppu Kandam Chicken kootu...

You know what...Some of the finest dishes have the most simple and basic ingredients is what i seem to realize more and more:-)
I got to have this awesome Chicken dish at Nanda's place and it just blew me off! Hats off to this recipe style and some great cooking by Nanda!

Now to mix n match, this dish can be treated as an spiced version of Mexican 'Sizzling Chicken Fajita' or even the Ethiopian 'Ye Doro Tibs'. Each of these dishes are in a class of its own. Trust me, If you haven't relished on these dishes yet, you don't know how good Chicken can taste!!!

An Old Lal'etan Scene...

Not sure which movie this is from...This is what Lal'etan tells Jagathi in response to Srinivasan to prove he is from states - Funny stuff!

"How many kilometers from washington DC to Miami beach..?"
"ha!ha!ha! I am the answer...Kilometres and Kilometres.. in these days of degenerating decency of Miami beach to Washington DC when diplomacy and duplicity become interchangeable from complicated America to America!!"
"You talk too much...I kick your face and get out...You talking nonsense in the house of my wife mother and father!! Uncle him send out..outhouse..go..go away.."
"Go away stupid....In this house of my wife and daughter, you will not see any minute of the today....
get out house...Erangippodaaa"

Launching Comedy Time!!!

Here is a collection of few good Comedies from Tamil Cinema...Sit back, Relax, Have Fun and Let me know your Inputs on this site!

Is Ignorance Really a Bliss?

We had a little debate if Ignorance is really a Bliss as we move forward in life... I continue to look at this with amazement.

There have been lot of instances where i wish i could have been a little more ignorant... I would have felt more like a child than like a man and i guess, it helps being a child at times lookin at things in awe and not with words that substantiate every stance!

There are umpteen other instances where i wish i had been a lot less ignorant that could have done a world of good... or does this stem from the belief in my mind tat experiences make a man which in other words mean, exposing yourself to a learning process that makes you more infallible!

Gautham'n Kili SappuChaaram!

Does Kollywood feed the press or Does the press feed Kollywood...I guess its the symbiosis of Press and Kollywood that ends up making you the prey!

Lets Look at the scenario...There is a beautiful movie made in Hollywood called 'Derailed'. Not many get to know of this movie including me and i don't spend a dime to watch it. On my way to India, I do end up watching this movie on Singapore Airlines flight while i casually browse thru' different channels and get completely engrossed in one of the first scenes of this movie. A few years later, a hotshot director from Kollywood gets inspired by this script and makes an Tamil version of this movie. To my surprise, the press is gung ho about this movie and this is what one of the leading cine review websites wrote:

"A seasoned stylist director has come out with an emotional thriller drama that is path breaking and gutsy within the commercial format... This is one of the best films that Kollywood has dished out in recent times. What makes the film so interestingly relevant is the fact that such a tragedy could strike anyone in the pulsating day to day city life."

Inspite of the n different failed attempts to break my mindset tat Kollywood cannot raise above the low standards they have set for themselves, i decide to take a chance once again to be a critic. May be, its not appropriate on my part to expect sooo much from a Kollywood movie. May be, it wasn't appropriate to watch the Original version and then watch the Kollywood version. May be, its just not right to expect Kollywood to change!

My 2 cents, Its a great thing that Kollywood is open enough to experimenting unusual story lines...but to do full justice to such a script, Kollywood needs to Cut -The-Crap as well.

Just Another Day...

This Valentine's Day was supposed to be very very special...After all, I found my soul mate and officially, this is our first V Day together!
However, circumstances haven't been kind enough... I will be spending this day like just another day as i continue to hold my breath for the day my soul mate will b rite next to me!

I don't understand why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine's Day. When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon.

Zeni & Bowling

This Friday nite out was good fun...Zeni seems to be steadily rising on the popularity charts. The wait time today was about 20 odd minutes or more, but it was well worth the wait. We all relished upon the Ye Doro Tibs, Sambusa, Yemisir Wot and everything that was dropped onto our plate:-)

It was bowling time after dinner as we opted out of it last weekend. We managed to get a lane on Homestead bowling alley this time. I managed to score my career best 181 in our second game...It felt nice and it would have been even more interesting had Satish been a spectator to this great game!
