Good idea to display breakfast / lunch / dinner


good display

In Bangalore ITPL I saw the restaurant people displaying their menu items like the above picture. Its very easy for the visitors from different state … with out asking for the menu from the suppliers … directly they can say the item no and pay the bill to get their food … fantastic idea .. my only worry is, is those sample food will be wasted? … who knows ? 🙂

How to find a nice rice

keelkattalai rice shop, Chennai

Alan is asking the shopkeeper to give him one pack of rice, so that he will place that in the digital weighing machine and check its wight. It's his favorite thing ... what ever you saw in the table .. those sample rice containers / rice packs / sample packs .. he will try weigh one by one ... keelkattalai rice shop, Chennai. And this grandpa is his good friend too ...

South Indian women are very particular in buying a rice …. The problems I faced in past, … after boiled the rise .. they(mum/wife/aunts/sister)  might be piling n number of complaints …

complaints are like

  • The smell is not good
  • The color is not good
  • Taking long time to cook
  • The quality is not good
  • The taste is not good
  • The look is not good ..I mean the brightness

After all these struggle, I learned a lesson …

If you are planing to buy rice as a pack its better to

  • Buy 1 kg / half a kg rice first
  • Cook it and taste it
  • Ask your family members opinion (Especially your wife)
  • Get their approval
  • Go to the same shop on the same day itself
  • Ask the shopkeeper to give you the rice from the same bag
  • store it in a proper container

I faced the problem of buying rice, especially idly rice …. so many times … and found this way …. to escape from scoldings … or murmurs .. 🙂

Aeroplane Dosa – To attract kids

If you have problem in feeding your kids just try this out. It  may help you for a couple of days.  After seeing this dosa people may come out with their own shapes to attract the kids. Lets image, my son (Alan Jeffsan – 6 years old) have only one dosa for the breakfast means, my wife tried making dosas  in different shapes. Now he is having at least three. The formula is, you just ask them what shape of dosa they want, and you try to make that shape. There is no need for you to be an expert to make these kinds of dosa.  kids won’t expect the exact shape … they are looking for … You could always have excuses like … the flour is not good … the flame is not enough in the gas-stove … Instead of eating the same old round shaped (Folded means semicircle shaped) dosa for more the number of times .. you can make them small small circles , small small ovals , squares or rectangle or triangular shaped dosas .Try some different shaped dosa. Definitely kids will have great fun.

South Indian Dosai with colorful Chatni

We had this dosa when my friend Ramana came from abroad. This is a special dosa because it has three different chattni’s and a sambar. Awesome taste. We had this in a hotel just opposite to Chinna malar bus stop, Saithapet, Chennai.
