Bangalore weather has been grillings us for a long time. Time to pay back with grilling some vegies. We decided to do some grilling with Paneer and Baby Corn. We had a brand new electric grill gifted by a friend. And we started making our Tikka mix by getting thick curd, tandoori masala and ginger garlic paste in a bowl. The usual mixing fights happened but we managed to make sure that we can move ahead.
That is when tragedy stuck us. No power and electric grill can not work. You have noisy kids in front of you and you got to act first. We soon moved our action upstairs where we had access to a gas. Now the next challenge was to make sure that we keep kids away from gas and hot tawas. I had to resort to a little bit of shouting to ensure that kids maintain safe distance from gas and hot tawa. We changed our plans and instead of making Panner Tikka and grilled Baby corn, we decided to make Vegetable Kababs on tawa. The kids were waiting for it to get them and they were putting so much pressure on me to cook it quickly. The chaos started as soon as the first round of kabas came out. They were finishes within a minute and everybody was shouting to get more. I had to use two burners to do it faster.
By the time we were done with Kababs, the power came back and we resumed the action on the grill. The problem was again to ensure that kids kept a safe distance. We did layout the Paneer on satay sticks and placed it on the grill along with baby corn. We took lot of photos of the grill. Kids loved Paneer and we had to make another extra round. Some parents had also come around by that time and we shared food items with them also. We could not make some of the items like grilled cheese potatoes because of power cut but we had enough fun making all the stuff.
One interesting aspect I have started noticing in kids now is that they are asking me lot more questions related to ingredients, decoration and also stories of their cooking experience. I did hear from some parents that some of them went back and cooked some stuff at home.
Looks like it is working!
