DP Daily Prompt: Shaken and Stirred
What’s the most elaborate,complicated meal you’ve ever cooked? Was it a triumph for the ages, or a colossal fiasco? Give us the behind the- scenes story( pictures are welcome, of course).
Call it elaborate or not it was certainly time consuming, It happens to be my first attempt to cook ‘Pad Thai’.
I got the recipe from the internet. Out of eighteen ingredients I did not have one,it was the peanuts, I let it go thinking if I didn’t have it, it was fine, one less ingredient.
It wasn’t difficult to understand the method but it was a long and arduous task.
There were so many things I had to do step by step before I could put it together.
I had to brown the chicken in batches, it took a while to get that done, then slicing the fresh carrots was a bit tough, the carrots were so hard I thought I might slice my fingers with the carrots, I thank the Lord it didn’t happen, making the sauce with so many ingredients was another thing that took long.
After investing more than two hours I was able to put it together. Why did I take so long, you may be curious, it was my first attempt, I never cooked ‘Pad Thai,’ before. I know if I try it second time it will not take this long.
My first attempt I’d say was successful, it was not a colossal fiasco!
Sorry there are no pictures, I didn’t think of it. If I took pictures the two and a half would be three and a half, which is too long to cook one dish!
