My First TIme

From left, clockwise: Savoury Fruit & Nut Basmathi Rice; Indian Grilled Spice Chicken; Curried Eggs.
















Saturday was the first time I attended a potluck gathering for a fellow blogger's birthday. William's to be exact.

I cooked three dishes. A savoury fruit and nut basmathi rice, Indian grilled spice chicken and curried eggs. Except for the rice, the other two dishes were my first try. This time I followed the recipes to the last dot. There was no time to explore and there certainly was no margin for error.

The dishes were a little bland for my taste buds, I thought. The aroma was there but the "umph" was missing. However one food blogger said it was just right. Maybe it is because I am so used to eating spicy and heavy stuff. I have decided to increase the spice content by a notch should I cook these dishes again.

This is also the first time I put up pictures on my blog. Hopefully there will be more to come.

I found the rice a bit dry...

Well, you cooked too much! Obviously people are afraid of rice. The salad was gone quickly though. But I thought the rice was okay. Just the right flavour, not too strong.

Not sure bout the taste, but visually it certainly has aesthetic appeal ;)

William...Egg-next time I can cook again. The rice is a bit cold ady and the ghee would have made it clumpy.

Legolas...:)Yeah..some groups of people don't like to eat carbo. Myself included.

Skyhawk...Will keep u posted on the next.

Evann...Must taste first. Maybe you wanna come along for the next outing?

Janvier...Basmathi :)

J-boy...Can always try next time.
