so let me get started.

i made this today. for like, 1 hour ago. today is my mum's birthday and well dinner will be outside, but what about the lunch?

something light but yummy?

how about a quick chicken? THATS IT! chicken it is :)

i always love the smell of coals in bbq.. but sadly we don't own a bbq machine or ( whatever it is called)

so this is a trick i often do for that aroma :D

hope you enjoy it :)

Heat some butter or ghee (1/2 cup) in a pan. Once it's hot all in the contents of your blender. Reduce the heat let it reduce for a while. You don't want it to get dry, you just want to drive off some of that liquid.

Once it's thickened up a bit thin it out. I thinned it by mixing fresh cream and milk ( half cup of milk and 2 tablespoons of fresh cream ( milai) mixing it very nicely). you can use half aand half or heavy cream too. but i prefered the organi cream known as milai. it is the cream with gathers on the top when we boil milk and let it cool in the fridge :)

And if you want it more thinner, add some water.

That looks delicious, and it's such a clever way to avoid using the BBQ. Thanks for sharing!
