Food Experiment gone wrong ðŸ˜‚😂

What happens when a noob like person tries to be Gordon Ramsay, Walter White or the crazy Walter Bishop……..they screw up bad. Although I had cooked few times at my sister’s place so I had the basic idea of cooking.

We were three roomates me, Richa and Rachana. Occasionally during Saturday’s or Sundays one of my roommate Rachana would cook fish for us.

Then one fine day I planned to cook mushroom curry. We got onions, tomatoes and potatoes from hostel mess and mushrooms from an online delivery app.

We had all the raw materials apart from spices and induction. So we went to a senior’s room at 5pm when she was deep asleep. Irritatedly she opened the door and asked what do you need we said induction and some spices for cooking and she gave it to us. Once we came back to our room and started cooking we realized that few more things were missing 😣. Yeah that’s where we screwed up…..it’s not good to wake up someone who is deep asleep as warth from God falls upon us🥺.

Little we knew what was coming for us. The second time it was just me who went to her room…..and knocked the door. This time she furious opened the door and she was like take everything….that was quite funny actually…..she was like take this take that take garam masala , take salt.

Being in a shock I went to my room with the remaining ingredients. Every thing went well till now, our food looked good with great aroma till it was time for the last chemical to be added which was “NaCl”. While adding the salt it looked kind of different from the regular salt consistency. We just neglected the fact and added it. And then all of a sudden the unexpected happened.

Me and my roommates trying to figure out what just happened

Turned out it wasn’t the NaCl but NaHCO3 in common man’s language known as Baking powder which gave us the memorable day. The expected curry turned out to be a cake. The gravy turned into a active volcanic eruption and everything overflowed out like lava. We tried to wash it repair it again 😒 but the taste so overwhelming 😩 for us we had to discard the entire experiment 😂. My Heart got scattered….. devastated and sad I was. Even that was not enough our neighbors Anjani and Tanu came to mock for fun. Typical “Virgo’s”. 🧐🧐

Although it was a failure at that time but an extremely memorable experience and an error story which I could tell my future friends.

Food and Ethics- “Everyone has the right to live, die with dignity “

Veganism, vegetarianism and non vegetarians are in constant conflict with each other. People mocking each other at lunch table is common nowadays 😉. Everyone is there for you to justify why their food habits are best. As I ate chicken almost frequently few of my vegetarian friends were constantly explaining to me why being non vegetarian is cruel to the animals although when I gave a thought about it they were true as being caged can be very sad for the animals. We don’t know what they are going through…..

I never ate Cow due to my religious beliefs but I did mistakenly eaten pork dumpling once by mistakenly and to be frank it was one the tastiest meat I had eaten. But when I came to know that it wasn’t chicken but pork….I was full of guilt and remorse for 2-3 days because of my religious beliefs and nothing else. Being from a Bengali,Hindu family fish and chicken was very common in my diet. I tried being vegetarian many times but failed miserably…..as it is not easy to quit any food which we are used to.So now I have just reduced the intake of non veg food and my parents left meat and fish long back when he was diagnosed with minor cancer.

I don’t know about other countries but the way pigs are slaughtered in some parts of India is very inhumane and cruel. Hit them bad and insert rod from mouth to anal cavity. I don’t think anyone would to die such a gruesome death.

I am not against any domisticated food habit. But we do need to re evaluate the method of killing Right r farm animals so that they feel the least amount of pain and people eating them have less guilt.

According to me animals should not be kept in captivity like in cages….open farms should be promoted….and at the end have a less painful death before being served at anyone’s plate.
