My cooking tales are going to involve some interesting facts or goof ups...

Goof up 1 - date 12 - 8 - 2008
I had bought raw plantain to make a nice spicy sabji - vallakai kootu, the kootu became a kootooo....
Yesterday as I unpeeled the 'Green' peels thinking that being green ensured that the plantain would be quite raw, but as the plantain shed more of its outer clothing in a seductive manner, my nostrils were treated to a nice bananaish smell, never have I ever smelled a raw plantain... as the clothes go off, I mean the peels go off I am able to see the pulp of a slight yellowish color. As my doubts starts traveling towards north, I decided to taste the pulp and it was so sweet and yummy that I devoured it instantly and there ended my aspirations of making vallakai kootu. Might sound silly but not to me who was dreaming of a spicy side dish for a few hours before this goof up. So till I meet the proper raw plantain my cooking of this particular dish is indefinitely postponed.
