DP Daily Prompt: Race the Clock

pad2015-s1.png (308×60)

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.”

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this post. My wish is that, one day, I can perhaps get to taste your good cooking that you describe so well in some of your posts :-).

    All good wishes,

    robert

  2. I love your race with the clock. I wonder if it would be possible to prepare a dish like that in 10 minutes unless everything was diced and set in bowls I rather doubt it. Delightful post

    • No I could not do it even if everything was ready,it takes thirty minutes in the oven alone.
      I could not think of anything at the time, so cooking was the only option.Thank you Leslie
