Once when I was home alone, I planned to make some chicken curry. I started with the recipe and it was my first time. I followed the recipe as shown on YouTube. All the ingredients were in the cooker as per the instructions. I locked it and left for cooking. After 15 minutes I opened the shut off the stove and opened the cooker in excitement! There was a second. And then another. And it was a blast of curry chicken! All over my kitchen! Needless to say, I had no idea I needed to wait for the cooker to cool down.
I tried baking boiled egg in an oven, and this is what happened:
I was trying to make lentil soup and I had to use the pressure cooker for the lentils. So I poured water into the cooker and left it to cook. Apparently, I poured too much water in the cooker so while it was cooking and whistling, water kept spurting out. I couldn’t really do anything but keep my distance from the cooker. After it was finally done, I waited for a good half hour before I tried opening the lid to let it cool off. Because of my stupid mistake of pouring too much water in the beginning, when I tried opening the cooker, open it did. But oh my god everything splashed onto my face, clothes and on the kitchen floor. Thank God the contents weren’t hot since I waited long to open it or I would haves scalded my face. Lesson learnt. Don’t use any kitchen equipment unless you know how to operate it. 😂
I had to fry popiahs for my dadi during ramzaan. And in ramzaan there are many other things to do like ironing clothes and pack bags. Nearing leaving time, I switched on the gas to ensure the pan was dry before I put oil so there would be no splashing of oil. And then someone asked me to help for something. Being as forgetful as I am, I went to do my school work. 10 to 15 minutes later the whole kitchen and living room was full of smoke.That’s when I realised that the gas was still on. The pan was definitely dry but it was burnt so bad at the bottom and the handle came loose as well.
When I started baking I didn’t really know much. I heated the chocolate and butter to melt it and get the consistency required. I then accidentally added egg into the still warm mixture. Long story short, I had cooked egg in my brownie.
