Kori gassi tales

Most kids in India live with their parents which makes them dependent in some or the other way. Responsibility is just a word for them. While I had my 21 years already spent in the same city with my parents, I wanted to explore and be ‘responsible'; learn to live independently. :P
The first thought that parents have is about safety, to lessen their concern I applied for a transfer through my company to Bangalore. It was my first step in the world of being responsible. I didn’t know what was in store. With my arms wide open like ‘Raj (Shahrukh Khan) of DDLJ’ I welcomed the changes and challenges.
Being a food enthusiast I prefer trying different restaurant in the city, and in the way of my exploration I came across this delicious, lip-smacking dish called ‘Kori Gassi’. Kori gassi is a Mangalorean chicken preparation usually eaten with steamed rice.
My mouth-watering encounter with this one happened on one of my visit to Karavali restaurant at the Gateway hotel in Bangalore.
Today, when I am back to Mumbai in my parent’s house I suddenly start missing those days in Bangalore. To revive my experience and those memories I decided to make Kori Gassi. And what would have been a better day than today on Father’s day to make a meal for my father when he is back from work.
Ladies and Gentlemen I present you Kori Gassi… J
