Hakuna Masala

Since making prata and cooking chicken is not particularly feasible in the time between Critical Writing and Foundation 3D, here is the product in all its digital splendour.

The light, crispy prata wedged into the skewer of tender tandoori chicken, with a ball of garam masala embedded into the prata which dissolves onto said prata when the curry is drizzled over it.

Food for Thought

Haha! Witty title because we’re talking about food. Is the title in any other way relevant? No.

Let’s dig in!

I spent the weekend thinking about what kinds of food would work in my model for Atlas.

The first thing that came to mind was prata. Indian food is amazing. I thought about letting the crispy prata wedge into a skewer of tender tandoori chicken with a ball of spices that just break open to titillate your senses when the curry is poured over.

Then of course, I realised that I wanted to make something that didn’t require so much work considering the fact that I have Critical Writing class before 3D.

Desserts. Dry desserts tend to be easier to work with right? Maybe teatime snacks?

I thought about slicing a croissant in half to be used as the cone, with a disc of solidified chocolate. As for the subordinate flavour? A single coffee bean to provide that special kick to the entire dish. Again- all well and good, but how well I would be able to work with chocolate? I really don’t know – especially with time constraints

So down to my final idea, which will probably stay that way: a very local take on the tea time snack of cheese and crackers.

Okay it’s not going to win any Michelin stars but the effort was there.

Now I have to explain what exactly you are looking at. The disc, for non-locals or if you are just too young, is a Biscuit Piring Wafer – a snack that most Singaporean are all too familiar with. The cone is the cheese of choice and that little reddish dot is a single grape to cut through the creamy richness of the cheese.

Now, I just have to hope that this will stay assembled on Friday.
