*The short, short weekend…*

By Freek at 1:56 pm on Sunday, March 25, 2007

The reason why I don’t buy nasi briani in school when it is sold Thurdays only and at dirt-cheap price of $1.50, is because my in-laws are in the briani business. And I steer away from any other briani because…

1) my in-laws sometimes give us briani when they get orders..

2) I get to eat briani when they cook for weddings

3) When I do eat their briani, I eat lots and lots cos’ they are so addictive.

So, yesterday was spent under blk 142 cutting the ingredients. It’s for an Arab family wedding so, I think there’re loads of Arab people over there right now as I type this. Yes, I’m stuck at home doing worksheets while his family and mine, busy themselves with catering food there. Sigh…

Yesterday, I decided to cut away the 3 big, red plastic bag full of cucumbers since I will NEVER in my life, cut brinjals because worms thrive in it.(precisely why I don’t eat brinjals either). Anyhows, true enough, my sis in law and aunt were squirming cos there were lots of them. Me? At every squirm they made, I stood up and ran away. Yes, I’m that darn squirmish of them.

Ok, sorry. Back to cucumbers though, the cucumbers were meant for the acar timun.

Before, I never ate acar timun when I went to weddings with me mum. But after trying out my in-laws’ acar, it has become a must-have in my brianis. Heh. I’ve been helping out with Dy’s family catering business since our relationship got “found out” 4 years ago.(yes, we went out for 2 years before being “found out”) *LOL*

Anyways, here’s 2 of the 3 trays I cut up yesterday.

And here’s the whole briani set fresh from this morning.(minus my favourite ayam masak merah cos’ it’s already finished. *sulks*)

Why so little, you say? Well, it’s my third helping. *lol*

hi! gosh, im such a blog-hopper. i drifted over from your husband’s blog. =)

your in-laws cater for weddings! looks good. i’ll keep this in mind for my own wedding. (which isn’t anytime soon).

anyway thanks for sharing!

aidil and i love, love, LOVE bryani. i especially love it with fruit chutney. or if it’s the north indian version (which is our all time fave), with raita or cold curd. yummers. =)

Oh my ur one lucky girl la….i absolutely love briyani!! Chicken, mutton, all i like! Hahaha. And like you, i always help myself to mutiple helpings, but that’s only when a close relative of mine gets wedded. Hahaha, kalau tidak, one serving je la.

And next time the in-laws have excess, you know how to give…. 😉 HAHAHA.

Katak’s family beriyani is one of the best. Im lurve his dad’s Beriyani Dam.. Hehhe.. Especially when served in one big dulang, it makes the environment different and somehow manage to make the taste more umpph like tat hehe.
