I don’t really believe in measuring while I am cooking…Hence it’s a tad bit difficult for me to write a blog…Out of the 6 things I bake in a week…2 of them don’t really come out like the recipe promised. Its eatable…Most of the times even delicious…But it would have turned from a cookie to a brownie depending on what I think is right or not…
Like the last time I made a brownie…I had initially planned to make a chocolate chip chocolate cookie but when I took the dough out of the refrigerator next day it was all hard and like the recipe suggested I started cutting the cookie dough using a knife…But the perfect disc which was suppose to result crumbled..Hence I got totally bugged…Threw the whole dough into the food processor…Put one more egg white and some milk till I thought the consistency was right…Greased a square dish and just poured it away in the dish and baked it..I figured I will either get a brownie out of it or a cake…Either ways I was ok..: D…I got the best brownie I had tasted!
I don’t even own a weighing machine either…So when they say 125 gms of chocolate I just wing it! Maybe that’s the reason why most of my chocolate desserts come out amazing…cause I put more chocolate than called for by the recipe!!:D
And most of the times I use one bowl method…I am not so good at creaming the sugar and stuff..Thinking back i guess that’s the reason why my macaroons came out like flat disks..Don’t worry I salvaged them too..: D…i put mixed berry jam in the middle and made a double disk sandwitch! D..It was pretty amazing!!The bitterness of chocolate and the tartness of the jam combined and made it a heavenly treat!!!
So what I mean is…whatever your disaster is…dont throw it…Just rename it! 😀
Like the leftover chappati dough that I had was made into a heavenly pizza!!Jus rolled out the roti dough into a thin thin disk..topped it with magi hot and sour sauce and mozzarella and zucchini! Baked it in a preheated oven at 220 degrees on a hot hot baking tray..and we have a healthy thin crush wheat pizza!!!
Hence don’t think too much about it…just start baking and hogging!!:D
