JUL 14 2009

Cooking time, here is chicken65 from my wife for you guys. I hope you all will enjoy as I enjoyed a lot.

Life is a learning curve and here it is really encouraging for me because I am very novice at cooking, I cook various things and learn as much as I can. I love chicken dishes hence it also makes me learn more recipes on it. I found a yummy dish named chicken65, it takes less time to cook than other chicken dishes. Chicken 65 is very popular in south India as it is believed to be started from there. Let me tell you a funny story behind this chicken item, I was really confused by the name, my friend said it as “Chicken 65”. So what I did, searched the web and looked for chicken 65. Wow, do you know what I see now? Some says the chicken needed to be 65 days old to taste good. Well, how would I know the age of the chicken that I just bought from the market? I also found an article that says the recipe needs 65 ingredients to cook, I lost all my interest reading these and thought to give up. Isn’t it really funny? Lol!!!

It is a fresh search from me and this time I named it chicken65 so got the correct recipe. BTW I got to learn from web that this funny name came from a military canteen. Normally people in defense use number for food items instead of real names, the recipe use to be at 65th place so it became popular as chicken65. Don’t worry this dish don’t need 65 ingredients anymore.
