Picnic Fried Chicken at the Zoo

These cranes are sharing secrets. “I love our new little guest, don’t you?” “She loves our long beaks I guess, with which we pick our fish?” “She’s human, and is here to visit us today.” “Ah, ok, I hope she says hello to the deer next door.” “She looks like, she would”...She would definitely dear crane, the mommy will ensure she does what you want.

The day turned out real beautiful, with the sun rhyming in rhapsody. Oh how my little S loved the zoo trip. Why not, she was accompanied by her grandma- her favorite in the whole wide world…and her cute questions made us laugh all the way…” Oh, look at beautiful birdy! Can she eat chips? Where are her teeth?”  And even if you don’t have any teeth, I still I love you dear crane .Thank you for the vanity oblige for one pretty picture.

Certainly not like the lazy giraffe who founds it too much an effort to move his long neck. Or the white tiger that preferred to sunbathe and get some color on his pale coat instead of one sly glance at us. No problem, keep your distance. We’ll go and coax the deer to smile for us.

Little feet are aching now, time to hop on to a train. Bye Bye...

Honk Honk here we come......our train trip is done and we are ready for our picnic the Kosha Mangsho aar Luchi has replaced the Buttermilk Fried Chicken & Potatoes and Pea dressing and some desserts.We too adapt with time, don't we little one , but then...

Food is how I remember those days. And those were the days.

Picnic Fried Chicken 

1 chicken (900 gms), cut into chunky pieces
Salt to taste
1 1/2 cups flour (maida)
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp garam masala 
1 cup buttermilk
vegetable oil to fy

Wash and pat dry the chicken. Now mix the salt, flour, ground black pepper, and garam masala in a large, big bowl. Thoroughly coat the chicken in the flour mixture, dusting off the excess. Keep it aside for a few minutes and then pour the buttermilk into a second bowl. Dip the chicken in the buttermilk, then back to the   flour and spice mixture.

Heat vegetable oil in a heavy-bottomed pan(about 360° F to be precise) then place the chicken in the oil, one by one.Fry the its golden brown in color. Check once done by piercing the the fried chicken. Its done once you see the juices run clear. 

Soak the excess in  a paper towel and devour . I tried mine with potatoes and peas in Greek yogurt dressing. 

My picnic table can fire up your valentine's too. Why not try it once.
