Rajab Nisha showed us how to cook three different types of biryani,gobi 65,chicken 65,meeta rice,bread halwa and this brinjal thokku.... Definitely worth the time spent on cookout...For more cookouts,Check this group...
Here are the few shots during the cookout...
So it was a hottest sunny day in a farm house....
The whole barrel filled with the beverages
The people were asked to bring their knife and the cutter board...
Around 5 kilos of onion were given to cut
I skipped the onion task and settled with tomatoes...
CFG didnt announce who is gonna cook in this cookout...I was too eager to know who....it was Rajab Nisha who cooked non stop for 6 hours for 30+ people....She is garnishing the bread halwa
Condensed milk shower on meeta rice
Nishanth with his dreams
Finally ,the biryani is ready to serve by Mrs.Ali who worked throughout the day...
