Chilly Mushroom Fried Rice With Mirch Salan

Chilly Mushroom Fried Rice With Mirch Salan
"I CAN COOK AND MY KIDS ARE NOT HUNGRY". That's all I'm saying here.. why is that you can not believe.  Every woman knows how to cook. Describe a person who can cook?? I would say, "trial and error." "If at first, you don't succeed, try, try again." To me, a good cook is someone who can go into a kitchen with bare essentials and come up with a fantastic meal. Not everyone can be born into a family of cooks who can train them from a young age; nor, can everyone afford to attend a culinary school.I think the whole key to good cooking is attitude and imagination. As the old saying goes, "Practice makes Perfect."

The in's and out's of cooking is a learning process and a matter of "taste". By cooking for yourself you'll find out what goes with what just by trusting your tongue. Practice practice, do the basics and then experiment. A "cook" is anybody that can boil water, a good cook now's what to put in the water and know's when it's done. 

I have been  learning cook since I could hold a spoon. My friends always seem to show up around dinner time. I can't take credit. I owe it all to my dad .He was my inspiration and could always make something delicious out of nothing.He had infinite patience in the kitchen, answering all my questions and patiently explaining methods and the reasons behind them, no matter how many times he must have wished I would get out from under his feet.. I have been collecting recipes for years. I have a binder with print-out, cut outs and some of my own creations.
