Cook vs Eat – The Biryani Blunder

This was a weekday sometime last month, out of the blue – I wanted to cook Biryani (Indian Rice Pilaf or something similar). It is a dish that my husband loves(though not necessarily the veg version).

So, I mentally devised a plan where in I would try and make my husband ask me to cook biryani. That way, I figured I could use the guilt points to my benefit some other day.

How it transpired in my mind:

Me: I feel like eating Biryani.

J: Why don’t you cook some?

Me: Sure. If you say so but you do know the amount of work that is involved…blah blah.

How it transpired:

Me: I feel like eating Biryani.

J: Let me take you out for dinner tonight. You pick the restaurant.

Me: What!!??!!

He couldn’t stop laughing after I confessed my plans to score some brownie points by doing what I was going to do anyway. I told him that I merely wished to cook biryani and not actually eat it. That is alright though, I shall get him some other day(evil laugh).

PS 01: Veg Biryani is a thing. It is not necessary for biryani to have meat in it. If you believe otherwise, let us choose to disagree.

PS 02: Yes, I made Veg Biryani that evening. It was yum, if I may say so myself.

PS 03: We(read I) love playing such games on each other.
