A consultant tries his luck!

Well then! I had taken it up as a challenge like always!
It was a genuine blow on my booming confidence when Sohini challenged me on an open ended competition that dealt with pampering our respective taste buds. It resembled a challenge that an apprentice had DARED to undertake.
The results were as devastating as expected yet it added some valuable experience to my armory which had never dared to improvise. I would rather go back to my college days; being termed as Mr.Omelette, I used to be my roomies’ sole resort on the day before the semester. There was no one else in the Hall who could cook as good an omelette as I used to...Not boasting by the way!
That adds all the more reason for this out-burst. Dude, the hero from college faces defeat on his debut challenge again a woman? Not done!
And as they say, GOD always throws in a couple of fixing chances; the opportunity to build on your “past” errors and script a leading example.
I had been recently transferred to Shillong owing to a critical assignment led by the Department of Commercial Taxes when I realized that staying all alone was not a good idea. And especially when your cook doesn’t seem to understand even a bit of Hindi or English, your job gets tougher.
Weekends in the Hills seemed to be the worst scenario; nothing to do, nowhere to go, nobody to talk to- And guess what, nothing to eat except the tasteless Rajma and those “pale” Momo(s)...It’s better to walk up to the Seven Sisters Falls and indulge in a full-fledged dive!  Sigh! NOT TO BE!
The trauma had no signs of settling down either. The worst scenario, INDEED, was a self-dictated “attack” by the client...there was ABSOLUTELY no reason why the SeMT head had to come in un-invited for dinner; he had a rye smile on his face that complicated my woes.
With absolutely NOTHING in the kitchen; I had to resort to my friend-philosopher-and-guide MOM, to save the tide and what she sent across over the email within the next half an hour was EPIC.
All she said was to “keep it simple” yet add that bit of spark into the frying pan; it should be a street smart recipe to say the least and here you go!



·         Noodles
·         Fortune Rice Bran Oil
·         Roasted peanuts
·         Prawns
·         Egg
·         Chicken/Veg Broth
·         For Pad Thai Sauce: Red chilli, Garlic, Ginger, Fish sauce/Soya sauce
·         Palm sugar
·         Tamarind juice
·         Herbs: Basil leaves, Chives Spring onions, Coriander leaves, Bean sprouts


1. Boil noodles, drain the water away and set it aside by mixing it with little amount of Fortune Rice Bran Oil.
2. Mix red chilli, garlic, ginger and make a smooth paste of it in mixer grinder.
3. Take a wok, heat it up in low flame and add Palm sugar, little water, tamarind juice, and the chilli paste already made and heat it till a smooth, uniform sauce forms. Set it aside.
4. Take a wok, add Fortune Rice Bran Oil and heat it up. Add prawns and little amount f broth and stir fry it. Add eggs, scramble it. Add some more Fortune Rice Bran Oil and finally the boiled noodles to it. Stir fry the whole thing and add the pad thai sauce to it, salt and chilli flakes. Set it aside.
5. Take some Fortune Rice Bran Oil in a fresh heated pan and add chopped peanuts and all the freshly chopped herbs to it and stir fry. Add this herb mix to the noodles and serve it hot.
6. Last but not the least, Fortune Rice Bran Oil is the heart of the "solution", this is an imperative ingredient that forms the base of this recipe or rather the back-bone. It's time to "take this to the cleaners"

Dunno what that meant. I blindly followed her instructions.
Phew!  And the REST?
................. Was HISTORY! 
All I can say is that it took him a couple of hours to approve our last pending payment!

Now you can "tax" your taste buds as much as you wish to ;)

Annnnnnnd....on the negative aspect, "he" became my permanent uninvited guest! What a waste :D

P.S. She did explain the significance of her "Point number 6" in due course of time. Those are categorically mentioned below.
