Apoo Does A Naked Chef

FYI: The title maybe a little misleading. There is no nudity involved.

Mom: "And for dinner, you want....?"
Me: "Pani-Puri"

2 hours later, Dad returns from grocery shopping. Yes, my family is ice-age. Women sit at home while the menfolk go out hunting for food.

Me: "Only one packet? Thats like 50 puri's"
Mom: "So, how many do you want?"
Me: "I'll eat that myself" (leaves home in hunt of more puri's)

Mom: (Looking towards Dad) "Is he serious about having this for dinner?"
Dad: "What say we add a high dose of Black Label to the 'pani' [water]? It might knock him off after 20."
Mom: "And U'll have 50 then!!"

I dont know if they added Scotch to the pani, or they added something else, but it sure made me star in the this family video.

Presenting: How to Make Pani-Puri in under 1 minute.

Comments from a friend after viewing this video:
"You look like an escaped convict devoid of pani-puri for a lifetime"

The Joshi family has a tradition of "What the child does, the father has to do better" (I so cant wait to kick my kids ass!!)

Note: Anyone who calls me over for lunch/dinner/breakfast/tea, make sure you have Pani-puri (or gol-guppas or puchkas, or whatever u call it). I love em!!

Bird had a very entrepreneurial idea of selling Tequila shots off a hand cart outside railway stations. Bird, I say you also try pani-puri with Black Label as the water. Or Tequila shots in puri's - 'Tequila Puri'.

Don't ask me how I got here... But that was absolutely hilarious (and I mean that in a really nice way!) Your dad's expression is exquisite :D I'd give anything to be able to eat pani-puri with my dad again...

Awwwww it was your budday?

Happpy buttday.... another year gone with Apoo hopefully none the wiser :) Wishing you lots of queer desi madames, spiked food and drinks, endless supply of chocs and booze (the chocs be for passing on to me) and may monotony never be a word known to you... may life be ever happening either for the best or the worse. Take care...
