Like the first half of its name Falkland Islands oil prospect also disappoints.

When Gunguli scores he does it with a bang. Afterall he's a Bang-ali. When he fails? He's an empty Gun w/o guli.

Fast-food lover

I have fallen for you and fallen hard
I love you like I love
Church's chicken fried in lard.

I want to dive into your deep dark eyes
I love you more than I love
McD's salted french fires.

I love the way you look
your mind is very clear
like a subway menu book (all foot long $5).

Your smile brings fresh cool breeze
it soothes my heart
like does 'cheap Chinese'.

I'll listen to whatever you say
you're voice is so sweet..
like yogurt parfait.

I miss you so much, it's not just another fling
I love you more than
BK's onion ring.

Poor Man's Shrimp Fajita

Shrimp is cheap in the USA, and it is also very easy to cook. I like Mexican food, and among their dishes I like shrimp fajita the best. Although, comparatively cheaper than other restaurants, I cannot afford to go out and have shrimp fajita every day. So I tried making my own shrimp fajita at home. My recipe is not taken from anywhere and before you start I must warn you that you can get a better and authentic recipe from elsewhere.

1/2 packet of Incredible® (or any other) raw shrimp (40-50 in a packet)
Green/red/yellow bell pepper (capsicum): 2
Onion: 1
Roma Tomato: 1-2
Lime: 1
Chilli (kancha lanka): 2-3 or more
Shredded cheese: any of the following kinds: three cheese, four cheese, Mexican.. etc.
Salt, cumin powder, chili powder, turmeric, fish masala, oil

Thaw shrimp, marinate with salt, cumin powder, fish masala, chilli powder, and a pinch of turmeric. (10 min maximum)
Julienne the bell peppers and the onions. Chop the tomatoes.
Heat oil in a pan, fry the shrimp until light brown. (Don’t overfry, this is not your spouse's bheja)
Set aside the shrimp, add more oil if neccessary. Add the onions, fry for a minute, and then add the bell peppers. Fry until the onion is light brown (not black). Finally add the tomatoes and cook until the reaction mixture is homogeneous (means tomtoes should not be seen separately, but can be felt and/or tasted). In the meanime you can sprinkle some water if neccessary (don't add too much water, this is supposed to be a dry dish). Add some salt and chilli powder according to your taste. Add the shrimp; mix them well with the vegetables, and squeeeze the lime from the top. Finally add shredded cheese (as much as you want), and wait till it melts. Your shrimp fajita is ready. I usually eat it with tortilla, but feel free to explore.

Chicken Jalalabadi

[Disclaimer: There is no connection whatsoever between the place Jalalabad, Afghanistan and this recipe.]

A love struck unmarried (this is a must) couple
Spices, salt, onion etc.
Any Indian recipe

Marinate chicken in ginger, onion, and garlic paste.
Heat oil in a pan.
Fry some onion until golden brown, add tomato and finally add the chicken along with the marinade.
Cover partially, put the heat to medium.
Come back to your living room and get involved in a romantic conversation (if you’re married you can’t have a conversation. However, there will be monologues and the male partner will pretend to listen. Hence, you can’t cook this dish!)
When you’re finished talking, go back to the kitchen, and open the cover. Don’t panic! The chicken IS supposed to look black and burnt.
Congratulations! You’ve made the ‘Chicken J(w)alalabadi’!

P.S. I found it very tasty, if not yummy. But Panchu Ginni (before she became ‘ginni’) vehemently protested and we ended up eating in a desi restaurant! After a few years Panchu Ginni recalls ‘I think we had cold (hence, stuffy nose) at that time. How come we didn’t smell the burning chicken?’ I disagree! When you’re in love, everything smells fragrant. :)
