What’s  your favorite food???

If we take the word count for the word “chicken” in the answer list,it may hit a century.

But when I answer this question,I can always see the other person’s mouth opened as big as they could open 😮  My favorite food is Tomato Curry!!!!

Now another 😮 from you???

This favorite dish is a two min dish in my home.It is easy for Mom to cook and give us.

Once i tried cooking it by myself.

Phew!!!It was not as tasty as what my Mother cooks.I made umpteen attempts but I failed to acheive the taste and aroma of my mother’s tomato curry.

Then I tried cooking it under the eyes of  my Mom;it didn’t work either.

That’s terrible!!! 😡 😡

I made my Mom cook it soon after my vain experiment.

Hurray 😀

It tasted different and yummy.But this is not fair because the ingredients I added matched exactly with what my Mom added in her curry.Still the result was different 😦 😦

The experiment is still going on and on and I have not yet succeeded.May be one day I will 🙂

Any way,you can also give a try to make my favorite dish and the recipe is as follows.

Green Chilly – 2
