Top 7 reasons why I joined IT

Have you ever wondered why people choose IT as their career? Well here are the facts on why I joined IT.

  1. I hated sleep.
  2. I had enjoyed my life enough.
  3. I couldn’t live without tension.
  4. I wanted to pay for my sins.
  5. I believed in Bhagwad Geeta: In Hindi “karm karo, phal ki ichha na karo.” (English translation, “do your work don’t expect anything”)
  6. Everything in life has a reason; i wanted to prove it wrong.
  7. I wanted to take revenge on myself.

Shrimp Curry Special

If you wanted to make a spicy Shrimp/Prawn Curry and didn’t now how to; Here is instructions to make it happen. You know what I’m not a Cook at all 😉 I’m a beginner and I believe it would be easy for you to learn it from beginner rather than from an expert 🙂 just kidding

Before me letting you know the steps, I have to give the credits.! And here goes the list, first friend of mine Seshadri, he is the one who provided timely instruction and offered much help and Rajkumar, our chief cook and guru and expert who served as inspiration behind this effort.


Ingredients:

  • Frozen or Raw Prawn / Shrimp
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons ginger and garlic paste
  • Large chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon iodized salt
  • 1/2 green pepper
  • 1 jalapeño
  • V8 vegetable juice (added in place of tomato )
  • cinnamon added for smell
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon mustard seed

Detailed Instructions :

  1. Peel the shrimp and remove the tails. Clean it with water.
  2. Fry roast the mustard seed with cumin in oil and add the green pepper and jalapeño during the course.
  3. Add the chopped onion to the mix and allow it to fry.
  4. Add the curry powder, chili powder and fry for a further 2 to 3 minutes on low heat
  5. Add the vegetable juice and stir gently
  6. Add the ginger garlic paste and cinnamon and stir well with salt
  7. Let it simmer for 10- 15 minutes
  8. Add the shrimp/ prawns and cook for further 10- 15 minutes until the prawns are cooked

I missed to add cilantro at the final step but make sure you don’t.

Wow..!!! now you’re ready with the tasty shrimp curry…. this is how I made it 🙂

Merry Chirstmas and Happy New Year

Somehow, not only for Christmas,
But all the long year through,
The joy that you give to others,
Is the joy that comes back to you.
And the more you spend in blessing,
The poor and lonely and sad,
The more of your heart’s possessing,
Returns to you glad.
