Hi all …It’s me VIRGINAL Isabella !
Do you know what ‘VIRGIN’ means.. you TWIT Isabella ???
Yes yes Twinny..!!
Am not the VIRGIN MARY .. but…
Was born in September .. so naturally
VIRGO/ VIRGIN / VIRGINAL …..VIRTUALLY !!
Now get cracking .. what are you cooking today??
Oh alright Twinny…!
Today’s MENU comprises FISH BHAAJI!
RECIPE no 1 coming right up… WATCH!
So to recap… I used…
Cut green chillies
Chopped fine ginger and garlic
FRESH GRATED COCONUT
Salt ,turmeric !
Hey FISH too ! Clean thoroughly with turmeric and salt….!
Mackerel /pomfret /sardines..!
Any VIRGIN fish will do!
What do you mean ‘ViRGIN FISH ‘???
RAW ,Twinny , RAW !!
RAW , UNFLAWED, PRISTINE!
Good grief Isabella!
Get on with your cooking…what do you do next..??
Ok ok… So once cooked …
Remove the fish slices ..
And dump right back in!
FISH BHAAJI ready !!
Of course the sprinkling of COCONUT OIL at the end …..Makes all the difference !
SEMI REFINED , so less hydrogenated ,so more safe!
As apposed to REFINED.. more hydrogenated but less aroma of coconut !
Accompany with RICE ROTI… YUM!
How about something to drink.. ?
Coming right up .. RECIPE no 2…
VIRGIN PINA COLADA!
ViRGIN again Isabella??!
Yes yes Twinny…!
PURE ,UNADULTERATED !
COCONUT MILK with PINEAPPLE JUICE…
In VIRGIN drinks ….no IMPURITIES like RUM , however PURE the rum may be!
Shake up in cocktail shaker with ice and a little sugar , maybe some lemon juice…
Dress with a parasol and a slice of pineapple..
And your carnival drink is ready!
Now for DESSERT ….as Light as Light can be! This time will use …
VIRGIN COCONUT WATER!
Yes I know Isabella…VIRGIN now means FRESH ,from YOUNG TENDER coconut!
Hey Twinny …You getting the hang of it !
For RECIPE no 3..
Take 2 cups fresh coconut water …
Stir in well the secret ingredient …1/2 – 3/4 tsp AGAR AGAR…
What the heck is AGAR -AGAR Isabella??
This is a vegetarian powder made from seaweeds which ‘SETS ‘ liquids .
Bring this mixture to a boil…….
Add a little sugar ..just to enhance the mild nutty flavour of the coconut..
Pour in a dish ..
Cool slightly ….before putting in fridge!
Will take just 5 mins to set!
Garnish with pomegranate seeds…
COCONUT JELLY with POMEGRANATE!
Serve with ice cream!
One could garnish the freshly made jelly with finely chopped GREEN CHILLIES. and freshly ground PEPPER instead and you would have Voila ..!
a spicy APPETIZER…!
still retaining the VIRGINAL Coconut taste virginal meaning here ofcourse UNSULLIED/ ORIGINAL !
You are driving me nuts Isabella!
Relax Twinny .. Time for a GENTLE HEAD MASSAGE …Which COCONUT OIL do you prefer??
VIRGIN /EXTRAVIRGIN ?
VIRGIN is COLDPRESSED UNREFINED….
EXTRAVIRGIN is COLDPRESSED , UNREFINED ORGANIC .. from trees grown without pesticide…
ISABELLAAAA …! Virgin / Extravirgin
I don’t care!
But have decided to gift you a ONEWAY ticket on VIRGIN Airlines to some
hitherto UNEXPLORED UNCHARTERED , UNMAPPED ahem VIRGIN territory !!
Serves you right for Acting like some
Queen of Sheba!
Queen of Sheba… Twinny???
You mean the VIRGIN WARRIOR QUEEN ??!
