Here’s the title of your post: “An Offer I Couldn’t Refuse.”
Set a timer for ten minutes ,and write it. Go!
My friend said one day,” if on Wednesday by 10 am , you make your popular dish biriyani and bring it to my house, I’ll give you a gift that you’d thank me for life.”
I was tempted, I woke up early morning completed my prayer and started getting the ingredients ready for the popular dish.
I sliced five onions chopped them and placed them in the pot,while the onions were getting caramelized, I got the potatoes peeled and , halved them and washed them. it was 8 am , I’ll be able to get it done on time I thought.
I gathered the spices, garam masala,cumin ,coriander,cayenne pepper, salt, ginger,garlic, in a bowl, I breathed a sigh of relief I’ll make it.
I realized I forgot to get the rice ready, I told myself to hurry, I got the rice washed and drained the water.
What about the meat, tomatoes,yogurt I still did not take them out, O my God, the clock ran out, while everything was left as is, I was not able to put the biriyani in the oven, oh poor me, I wonder now what was the surprise?
My brain told me “you slow poke you do not deserve it.”
