Not-so-sudden realization: Potatoes take forever to boil! :( Or maybe there's something wrong with the two specimens festering on my stove for the past hour. WTF maiite (like the Aussies say it), I be hungry-hungry! *sigh*

Upcoming realization: You need to switch on the stove.

microwave it and then cook it. Takes 10 mins max.

Xeb said...

huh. Is that right? Microwave for how long? I'm going to try this next time!

Poke with with a fork, then microwave. Works damn well.

Xeb said...

Huh. My readers a treasure chest of cookery information! Will try that tonight! :) Am tempted to make myself a steak for dinner. Any tips to avoid disaster?

LOL @ Deepak's initial comment.

From a near death experience to boiling potatoes. I guess when life gives you potatoes, you boil them.

No cooking advice though, if you plan to make paranthas from the said pieces of rocks please pass on some.

*hai*

Aloo parathas. *yum-yum*

I totally spent 2 hours trying to get my aloos and gobis to cook, so I feel you!

Xeb said...

Haina? Our mommy's make it look much easier than it is, this cooking business! :P

No, no - they do take forever to boil!
And only on days when you desperately need boiled potatoes instead of days when you have all the time in the world. Murphy's law?
