10. JAB WE METmaujan hi maujan

A romantic comedy about a depressed millionaire kid and a fun loving, happy-go-lucky girl. The movie is cheerful and youthful all thanks to Kareenas brilliant role portrayal as Geet. Shahid is cute as ever. The music is great too. Maujan hi muajan by Mika Singh rocked the clubs for quite a while.

 

 

 

kabhi kabhi9. KABHI KABHI

A film of broken hearts, old memories and two generations of love affairs. Great cast of Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, Rishi Kapoor, Waheeda Rahmna, Rakhi, Shashi Kapoor and Neetu Singh. Once again a film with brilliant music. Has the soulful ‘kabhi kabhi’, ‘main pal do pal ka shayar’ and  ‘sada chidyan da chamba’. Yash Raj Films at their best!

 

 

8. PRETTY WOMANdrop dead gorgeous!

Ah! Richard Gere looking drop dead gorgeous! Such a gentleman! So Mr. Darcy! That’s why every girl must watch it! Also, cause it’s a typical fairy tale, where everything becomes alright in the end and love prevails.

 

 

)7. BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM

Ah! Desi girl kicking arse in gora-land is the top most reason why you should watch it (Please excuse my racism). Besides that, it’s a very well made story about love and friendship. And the typecasts girls anywhere in the world face involving vocations in men-dominated spheres like sports. Has a great Punjabi feel to it as well.

 

 

6. TITANIC       my heart will go on...   

If you have ever been a little girl and seen Leonardo di Caprio in Titanic, you knew right away what was love and had your first heart break when Jack Dawson dies! Sigh! The first tragedy in my list, but worth its place for its romance and drama.

 

 

hum apke hain kaun

5. HUM AAPKE HAIN KAUN

This four hour long very musical film is a staple for any Bollywood fan. The greatest hit of the careers of Salman Khan, Madhuri Dixit and Sooraj Barjatya. A story which dramatizes the tender love between Prem and Nisha and reinforces what families means to us Indians.

  

 

4. ROMY AND MICHELE’S HIGH SCHOOL REUNIONgo girl!

It is a great flick to pick when you are feeling blue. All about being yourself and knowing that you rock! Very power-puff-girls feel in the climax with the girl power action.

 

 

monsoon wedding

3. MONSOON WEDDING

A great Indian wedding full of fun and frolic, yet with some grey undertones. A brilliant story and wonderful performances. Eespesal mensun- Dubey ji of the flower eating fame.

 

 

2. CHOCOLATyumm

Chocolate + Johnny Depp = Happiness of entire female species!

‘Nuff said.

 

 

 

 

love!ah!1.  LAMHE

Another Yashraj classic. A love story of a younger man and an older woman and then an older man and younger woman. Superb performances by Anil Kapoor and Sri Devi. Waheeda Rahman and Anil Kapoor also remarkable in their supporting roles. Brilliant screenplay, touching dialogues and the most timeless love story.  

 

 

 

 

My Eggless Chocolate Cake November 22, 2007

Filed under: Food — wildpaw @ 10:12 am

Of recent, I have started going to the kitchen. After my DSN i have really ‘broken my barrier’ of cooking. A few things I learnt as a novice :

  1. Cooking is easy

  2.  Chopping, peeling and sifting ar not!

  3. The best way is to follow the recipe word to word.

  Alright , yesterday I baked a cake for mom’s YES!+ . It turned out hot! I followed this very easy recipe which I took off the net. Here is how it goes…

Ingredients:
3 cups flour
6 tablespoons of Cocoa Powder
2 Tsps of Baking Soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups of water
2 cups of sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp vinegar
1/2 cup of oil
 

The Method:
1.
Sift 3 cups of flour, 6 tablespoon of cocoa powder, 2 tsp of baking soda, and ½ tsp salt in a large bowl
2. In another bowl, whisk 2 cups of water, 2 cups of sugar, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 2 tsp vinegar, ½ cup oil. Whisk until the sugar gets dissolved.
3.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well with help of hand mixer. Pour the batter into a greased oven pan.
4. Pre- heat the oven to 350 F and bake for 35 – 40 minutes.
5. Let it cool and keep in the fridge. Serve it cold.

It turned out BRILLIANT! And the best thing is that it is without egg. Yes yumms without paap. I put some chocolate desert dressing to make up for the lack of frosting. Made swirls on top and let it drip by the sides. 

And behold the beauty!
