The factor that makes a Christmas lunch further particular

My love of cooking stems from all of the particular meals my mother made for particular events. We hardly ever eat out and determined to strive Mother’s newest creation as a substitute.She at all times made certain one thing particular was made Christmas, new yr, easter, birthday. She painstakingly browsed magazines, scoured the newest recipes, and tried one thing new, particularly from the desserts part. Breakfast is appam and stew, lunch is biryani and cutlet, adopted by pudding.

My mom at all times made and fried cutlets a number of days upfront. Christmas My fondest reminiscence of lunch was the leftover egg used to coat the cutlets. After frying, pour all of it into the remaining oil and voila. Physique from crumbs. My brother and I used to combat over this deliciousness, however mother would at all times give her favourite baby an even bigger portion! With a lot of oil, the perimeters can be crispy and have a lot of Christmas recollections.

Merry Christmas everybody!
