Or maybe How To Make Your Wife Mad At You. 😐
Method #1 :- It was their first grocery shopping together as a married couple at a supermarket. They decided to divide and conquer. The wife asked her husband to get few items including mustard oil while she got the others. After paying the bill, they went home.
Days went by…The wife cooked tasty dinner every day which included non veg items cooked in mustard oil. One night the husband wanted to eat puffed rice (murra) along with chopped cucumber,onion and bit of mustard oil (a dish called “Mudimakha”). When he poured the oil, the texture and color seemed different. 😕
And then they discovered that the oil was sesame oil or til ka tel!!! 😯 The husband had taken THAT from the shelf and kept it in the shopping cart and the poor trusting wife had not read the label…had just looked at the color and assumed it was mustard oil. 😡
Method #2:- It was a lazy Saturday morning. The wife decided to take a break and asked the husband to make breakfast for them. The husband made “poha” and tea. They had breakfast together,one watching TV and another solving the crossword puzzle in the newspaper. Then they got ready and went out for lunch and shopping. It was late evening by the time they returned home.
The wife entered the kitchen to soak “chhole” or chickpeas for next day’s lunch. And…..she saw the light blue flame burning at sim at one of the burners of the gas stove and realized it had burned since morning..since the time the husband made tea!!! 👿 😡
P.S. The husband in the story,as some of you may have already guessed, is D 🙂 D cooks quite well and is a great help around the kitchen and the house. He just suffers from two quirks – forgetfulness and lack of concentration 🙂
P.P.S. Sesame oil was shocking because Bengalis don’t cook anything in that oil.
