  1. His wife, who is a vegan, felt something odd while taking a sip of the beverage and then found some pieces of chicken in coffee
  2. Wood was only 19 when, as a student at the renowned Le Cordon Bleu culinary school in Winkfield, near Windsor, west of London, she was asked to perfect a recipe created by the school´s director, Constance Spry.
  3. For years soup kitchens offered lunch at 1 sol (27 cents), but now community leaders have been forced to charge 1.5 soles
  4. If increasing trend persist then price of chicken meat may cross Rs500 per kg in Punjab, say sources
  5. The outbreak was confirmed as the H5N1 strain of avian flu in a flock of about 240,000 broiler chickens
  6. After the Hyundai controversy that has been raging over social media, sentiments of a large number of Indian citizens have been hurt, courtesy the controversial stand regarding 'freedom of Kashmir'. Not just Hyundai, other brands have also messed up just like this in the past, but did not get under the radar of pissed off netizens, somehow. That just changed, and looks like the first casualty is KFC. After @HyundaiIndia & @KiaInd its time to say Good bye to @KFC_India pic.twitter.com/FIi6tV5gJM — Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga (@TajinderBagga) February 7, 2022 Clearly, the implications started showing immediately, and KFC stepped up and apologised. Here's the tweet. We deeply apologize for a post that was published on some KFC social media channels outside the country. We honour and respect India, and remain steadfast in our commitment to serving all Indians with pride. — KFC India (@KFC_India) February 7, 2022 However, did it work? Looks like an apology post is not sufficient when it comes to doing damage control, judging by the soaring tempers of Indians on Twitter. It's time to wrap up your business from india , wait and watch. #BoycottKFC — karnik Upadhyay (@karnikUpadhyay) February 8, 2022You lost at least 10 customers from my family forever. That may not affect you. But, me and my family is not the only one. Millions will be there! #BoycottKFC — Madhav (@starks5s) February 8, 2022This is final, I will never purchase anything from KFC.... KFC knows everything about Kashmir India Pakistan still the comment Kashmir issue from my side it's a lifetime boycott.... — I am Rohit (@RohitBidgar) February 8, 2022People are refusing to let KFC India or even the mother brand go scot free because the post was made from KFC Pakistan's handle. Here's an argument for the same. Hyundai & KFC operate in China as well as Taiwan. But you will not see their Taiwanese subsidiaries ditch One China Policy or call for Taiwan's independence. Because if you do, you will never see them operating from China ever again. Strength is feared before it is demonstrated. — Anand Ranganathan (@ARanganathan72) February 7, 2022 Looks like other brands are not exempt as well, as netizens have kept a track and old incidents are being uncovered as we speak. Companies which posted against India 1. KFC 2. PizzaHut 3. Hyundai 4. Osaka Batteries 5. Isuzu D-Max 6. Bosch Pharmaceuticals 7. Atlas Honda Limited 8. Kia Motors Crossroads 9. Dominos You all can go and do business only in Pakistan. #MNCsLeavePakistan — Amit kumar (@Amitnsece) February 8, 2022 Here are some more reactions, that sum up the tense environment permeating on social media right now. Boycott @KFC_India @HyundaiIndia @KiaInd and all terrorism-supporter corporates till the time they send an official APOLOGY to GOI, persecuted Kashmiri Hindus & every Indian and fire all those executives involved in this anti-India campaign. #RightToJustice pic.twitter.com/cLDpx8h1Xa — Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri (@vivekagnihotri) February 7, 2022Don't know what's wrong with these MNC companies like #KFC and #Hyundai - Needling India for a market which probably not even profitable. Companies are expected do business and not to dive into geo-political issues, rubbing a nation with 1.3 billion consumers in a wrong way. pic.twitter.com/K45kA7CV48 — Rishi Bagree (@rishibagree) February 7, 2022I was a die hard fan of kfc. But not more than our country. @KFC_India be indian buy Indian #BoycottKFC pic.twitter.com/zIHwon6oAR — Vikram Rana (@Vikramranachd) February 7, 2022I appeal to the centre & all the state govts to take serious action against all the @KFC_India outlets and ask them to shut their outlets . They have no right to do buisness in India. #BoycottKFC pic.twitter.com/6CugpmjI7h — Ashoke Pandit (@ashokepandit) February 7, 2022Looks like brands need to be more vigilant in terms of expressing opinions in issues that don't directly concern them or their business in any way whatsoever, especially when it concerns sensitive geo-political issues such as Kashmir.

  7. Controversy arose after a customer discovers a full chicken head in their KFC hot wings meal
  8. Ask anyone their December plans and chances are rife that they’ll say - watching ‘83’. Bollywood heartthrob Ranveer Singh is all over the news for his phenomenal performance in the cricket biopic. In the film, Ranveer Singh essays the character of Kapil Dev and unleashes ripples of excitement among the audiences with his super 6’s and super 4s. As for us, we are partaking in the excitement with a big bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken. Wondering how? With the all new KFC App, of course! KFC Just unlock the Super 6s and Super 4s offer on KFC’s all-new App this holiday season! I mean, what are winter get-togethers without a hot bucket of Kentucky fried chicken, right? Under this offer, KFC is offering 6 pieces of Hot & Crispy Chicken and 6 Chicken Strips free for every 6 ordered (or even 4+4 considering your hunger’s ‘boundaries’) between 22nd and 26th December 2021. Talking about the brand film, we love how Ranveer Singh tackles all the tough balls with out-of-the-world (or should we say ‘stadium’) shots. And just as he strikes the last ball, he looks into the camera and urges us to do the same with our hunger pangs. ““Bhook ke chakke chhudao”, says the loud and proud Ranveer Singh. For those of you who are still wary of ordering food from outside, we have news! KFC KFC wants its consumers to enjoy a worry-free meal of scrumptious chicken and to ensure that, the brand has implemented a 4X Safety Promise of Sanitization, Screening, Social Distancing and Contactless service. All KFC outlets sanitise their surfaces (tables, chairs, counters, door handles, etc) every 30 minutes. As for the delivery services, KFC’s restaurants and delivery teams intensively sanitise their hands and bags after every order. What’s more? KFC ensures contactless delivery at all times - be it home delivery, delivery to our vehicle, dine-in and now also with Express Pick-Up (takeaway order ready in just 7 mins). In a nutshell, you can rest assured that quality food reaches you with a superior level of sanitisation. What more could we ask for in these testing times, right? View the full article
  9. The man confessed to police on Monday, said he smashed wife's head with a wooden log
  10. As a writer, one of the most frustrating things that I experience in my trade is when, sometimes, my content gets plagiarized and used by people as their own. You see, nothing is more important than giving credit where it’s due, because not doing that doesn’t just mean you’re taking away something that doesn’t belong to you, but also that you’re twisting the origin story, and that can open a whole different can of worms. Like in the case of this particular Tweet, that claims how Mughals brought Biryani to India, while ‘Chicken Tikka Masala’, the famous dish all of us Indians and the world like to gorge on, was actually a British colonial dish. Have questions already? You're not alone. Read on... Mughals brought Biryani and British brought Chicken Tikka Masala pic.twitter.com/cJqx6FvJvJ — Rahul Roushan (@rahulroushan) July 29, 2021 I’m 25-years-old and it’s been nearly that many years since I’ve been eating this “British colonial dish”, believing it actually originated in India, because well, you know. However, a quick search on Google might have just proved that I, along with a few hundred thousand Indians who thought the same, were absolutely wrong. Legend has it (and by that I mean several articles on Google) that the famous and mouth-watering dish dates its origin back to the 1970s when a Bangladeshi chef from Glasgow named Ali Ahmed Aslam of the Shish Mahal restaurant accidentally ended up making this masterpiece for a customer who had a stomach ulcer. © istock He added a touch of tomato soup and a variety of spices to the dry chicken, serving it with a hot and spicy gravy and voila! A dish was born that would, eventually, have hundreds of people fighting over its copyright in the comment section of a Twitter thread. As people stand divided on Chicken Tikka Masala being called a 'British colonial dish', here are some of the most entertaining tweets made by people who can’t stop debating on the matter and are clearly not going down without a fight. Many are holding on to the technicality that since India was no longer colonized in the 70s, it doesn’t make it a British dish, while others are hitting back with some cutting edge sass! Arey sambhar bhi inhone hi invent kiya tha, shayad woh bolna bhool gayi... — Utsav Sharma (@Utsavvsharma) July 29, 2021 Next they will say mysuru pak is British colonial dish it was tribute to her highness queen elizabeth from Krishnaraja Wadiyar IV@ARanganathan72 — avi_kudla (@avi_trends) July 29, 2021 Yup. And Egyptians gave us samosa and jalebi — Paddy (@arpaddy) July 29, 2021 Indians colonised the UK — Vinod (@hmm_er) July 29, 2021 It was the Mughals who gifted the recipe of chicken tikka masala to the Brits. That recipe was handwritten by Aurangzeb himself, who was also the inventor of the wonderful dish. #ThankYouMughals — Trade Yogi (@Trade_Yogi) July 29, 2021 Waffles is a Bihari dish. — nikhil (@say2nj) July 29, 2021 And Yoga is British colonial exercise? — विक्की, प्लीज! (@IsolatedBandar) July 29, 2021 British colonial and not British dish. — diordon (@diordon26) July 29, 2021 This is kind of true. British didn't really invent the dish but a British chef mixed the chicken tikka and the masala gravy when he was short for time and a officer demanded a curry. It caught on from there. Its not their invention but mixed two Indian dishes to make a new one. — Ranganath D. (@drgooner) July 29, 2021 This is kind of true. British didn't really invent the dish but a British chef mixed the chicken tikka and the masala gravy when he was short for time and a officer demanded a curry. It caught on from there. Its not their invention but mixed two Indian dishes to make a new one. — Ranganath D.

  11. You know the phrase 'gun to your head', which is often used in situations where you imagine yourself being forced to do something? “Gun to your head, who would you rather kiss…”, “Gun to your head, who would you rather kill..”, “Gun to your head, what would you rather do…” Well, looks like a man finally has an answer to the hypothetical question, where during a robbery, he literally had a gun pointed to his head, and he chose to calmly finish off his hot wings instead of freaking out. Being called the “chillest man” by the internet, after a video of a restaurant’s CCTV footage went viral, the video captured a robber in a helmet enter and rob an eatery with a weapon in his hand, all the while a man continued finishing his chicken wings off. Because, priorities. The one minute video started off casually, showing a bunch of people gabbing with each other while others sitting and enjoying their meal. And then, within the next few seconds, a man with a helmet walks in, pulls out a gun and starts pointing it at people to demand their precious belongings. Pran jaye par 'chicken' na jaye!https://t.co/t7t3JLc3w8 — StoryPick (@StoryPicker) June 28, 2021 In a normal situation or say, a typical Bollywood film, this would be a good time to do either of two things - secretly call the police and/or let your hero complex kick in and save the day. This man, however, went for a secret option no. 3 which involved him minding his own business and not breaking a sweat under the pressure. In fact, he very calmly takes his phone out of his pocket and hands it over with one hand over his head, while with the other he is still taking scrumptious bites of those chicken wings. Meanwhile, a few standing close to the exit have fled the restaurant while others are giving up their phones and wallets. Here is how Twitter is reacting to the story : Not all heroes wear capes — Follow Up News (@FollowUpNewsGuy) June 28, 2021touch the wing...you will know his special-secret-agent-move — widi antara (@tacnol) June 28, 2021"yea yea take whatever you want, just not my wings" — lmao (@fckinastronaut) June 28, 2021Aint no way — Shuichi Akai ︻デ═一 (@8_bram) June 28, 2021Savage — Becca White (@BeccaWhite45) June 28, 2021Meanwhile, we are wondering what was more startling, the robbery or the fact that a man could give his undivided attention to his chicken wings while being robbed! What would your instinct be? View the full article
  12. Most of us have made that one impulse-buy, that we have come to regret eventually. A pair of sneakers, a watch, a video game, a mobile phone - these things may be expensive, but they at least have some utility. © iStock Now, imagine spending Rs 38 Lakhs on a single piece of chicken nugget, because it looks like a nameless character from a video game. Well, that is exactly what has happened. © iStock An eBay user has put up a post saying that he has a Chicken McNugget in the shape of a crewmate from the massively popular game, Among Us. © InnerSloth LLC What is more surprising, that people have actually bid some insane money on the piece of chicken. The bidding closed at $51,800, or roughly Rs 38 Lakhs. © eBay But why would a piece of chicken cost as much as a decently furnished 1 BHK apartment? McDonald’s has teamed up with the Korean boy band, BTS, and is selling a combo meal popularly known as the BTS meal in some markets. A part of that meal consists of a box of Chicken McNuggets. This is where the “magical” piece comes from. © Instagram/bts.bighitofficial Food items with such appearances are usually auctioned off for ridiculous amounts of money. In 2016, a piece of Cheetos, the American version for India’s Kurkure, sold for $99,000 because it was shaped like Harambe, the infamous gorilla that was shot inside a zoo in the US. © eBay Then, there was this instance, when a cheese toast, that apparently looks like the Virgin Mary, was auctioned off in 2004, for $28,000. © eBay Given BTS’ global appeal and popularity, and the fact that any unique and bizarre merchandise with their name connected to it has become a collectable, we can see why someone bid $51,800 on it. The listing says that the nugget is ‘slightly used,’ and that it will be frozen and air-sealed before it is shipped. © eBay We just wonder, what was the person thinking when they placed the bid? And what happens when the thing starts going bad? Well, that would make this ordeal quite interesting, wouldn’t it? View the full article
  13. Consumers say beef with bones is now available for Rs700 per kg, while boneless meat is for Rs750 per kg
  14. Mahendra Singh Dhoni is quite famous for his capabilities on the playing field. An absolute warrior when wielding the willow, a pragmatic leader when marshalling his troops and an attentive wicket-keeper with lightning quick reflexes, Dhoni carved his own niche in the gentleman's game. But, apart from his rich legacy in cricket, Dhoni's love for butter chicken is also well known amongst fans. The former Indian captain's fondness for the Punjabi dish has been thoroughly highlighted in his social media posts in the past. That probably explains why he ordered a staggering 2,000 black 'Kadaknath' chickens last month. View this post on Instagram Having already called time on his international career, Dhoni is eager to start farming his own batch of the special Indian chicken at his organic poultry unit in Ranchi. The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain had approached IS Tomar, head of the Kadaknath Murga Research Center in Jhabua, expressing his desire to acquire the black chicks. So what makes this black chicken so special that it has now courted an interest from Dhoni? Well, the famed Kadaknath breed, that comes with a Geographical Indicator (GI), is originally from Jhabua area in Madhya Pradesh. Unlike other breeds, this chicken is known for its distinct black colour. View this post on Instagram Not only are the bird's feathers black, its meat and eggs, too, are of the same colour. But, it's not just the looks that make the Kadaknath breed stand out. Its meat is highly rich in protein and has far less fat as compared with a broiler or other chicken breeds. Owing to its qualities, the Kadaknath chicken meat is not only expensive, but also hard in texture which is why it needs a different style of cooking. © Instagram/@kadaknath_black_chicken If that's not enough, the fact that Kadaknath chicken also has medicinal properties further makes it a highly sought after breed. One of the breeders of the indigenous variety recently shared a story highlighting the medicinal qualities of the Kadaknath chicken. View this post on Instagram "A close relative of mine had some health issues. We had heard that Kadaknath chicken had some medicinal properties. We sourced the chicken and put it on the relative's diet. There was some improvement in her health. It was then that my son thought of the business aspect of Kadaknath chicken," Rudra Breeders, one of the earliest chicken farms in Tamil Nadu to raise Kadaknath chicks, owner S Shanthi told IANS. When it comes to the cost, a pair of Kadaknath chicken can cost around Rs 5,000. A female Kadaknath chick can grow up to weigh 1.5 kg, while the male grows up to 2.5 kg. While the unique breed has been making waves in the Indian market for a while now, interest from a famed cricketer like Dhoni is bound to boost its popularity amongst Indian foodies.

  15. The opening partnership between Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag is considered to be one of the best and most successful duos to open the batting order for any international cricket team. Having shared the pitch in 93 One-Day Internationals, the two went on to form a 3,919 run-partnership over the years and with an impressive average of 42.13. In the process, the two also share 12 centuries and 18 half-centuries and have the fourth-best record in all over international cricket. © Reuters But because of the extremely shy and reserved nature of Sehwag, the idea to go ahead with this partnership might not have worked in the first place. Thankfully, Sachin had already been in this spot before and he knew what he had to do for Sehwag to start opening up and feel like a part of the partnership they were destined to make. In a conversation with Vikram Sathaye on What The Duck, Tendulkar said: “When Viru (Virender Sehwag) had just joined, he was a shy guy. He just wouldn’t talk to me. I thought this can’t work. If we need to play together, bat together, I need to make him feel comfortable. So, I told him 'let’s catch up on dinner'. Where he told me he was a vegetarian.” © Reuters “He was not eating chicken because he was told he will become fat. Only thing I told him was if I looked fat! Ever since, he has been eating chicken,” he added. The relationship between Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar continues to remain as great as it once was on the field. © Reuters For Tendulkar, Sehwag is just Viru, the man who can only be kept from talking only if he is given something to eat. While for Sehwag, Sachin is nothing short of his god. They laugh, make fun of each other and share hilarious stories from their time in the middle of the ground but the sense of mutual admiration and respect that they have for each other comes from years of getting to know each other and become family. And that’s what they are, family. View the full article
  16. Lockdown 2.0 is upon us! We can't go out but that's a small sacrifice when all of us are trying to flatten the Covid-19 curve. But the thing that's making fitness freaks…well, freak out is the fact that they aren't getting to eat chicken! Shops are shut, online delivery is still spotty and if you've moved back home for the lockdown, then your mother isn't letting you bring chicken and eggs into the house! Well, what if I told you that you can get your precious protein even from vegetarian sources? What if you could keep your gains and even make some progress eating everyday vegetarian foods? Here's the good news – you CAN absolutely eat vegetarian food and get as much protein as chicken! Trust me, I should know – I'm a 100% vegetarian and I owe all my muscle to these foods. Here are the top 5 vegetarian sources of protein (and some easy-to-cook recipes that even you could make!): 1. SOYA NUGGETS/CHUNKS © iStock Forget all the stories which say that men shouldn't eat soya or that it'll give you moobs! Soya is an excellent source of whole protein and is a must-have food if you're a vegetarian. Just 40 grams of soya nuggets delivers 20 grams of high-quality protein. Compare that to chicken: 100 grams of boneless chicken breast gives you about 22 grams of protein. It's also an inexpensive food besides being a rich source of fibre. (Here's an interesting fact: in Japan, soya is called the “meat of the fields!”) Recipe: Soya Nuggets in Gravy a. Soak 40 grams soya nuggets in hot water and keep aside for 15-20 minutes. Squeeze out drain the water by pressing the nuggets in your hands. b. Add oil/butter to a pan. Sauté onions, tomatoes and ginger-garlic paste till they're cooked through. Add turmeric, red chilli powder, cumin powder and coriander powder, as per taste. Add water and bring to a simmer. c. Now, add the soya nuggets. Cover with a lid and simmer for 10 minutes. d. Add salt and garam masala as per taste. Serve hot with rice or roti. 2. PANEER BHURJI © iStock Made from milk, paneer is a great addition to your diet. It's easily available and can be stored in the fridge for days. 110 grams of fresh paneer contains 20 grams of protein. Plus, it's a versatile and tasty food that can be eaten in a variety of ways – fried, with vegetables, as a gravy or even made into mithai! Recipe: Paneer Bhurji a. In a frying pan, heat oil/butter. Add cumin seeds till they pop. b. Sauté onion, tomatoes and all the regular spices (check the soya nuggets recipe). c. Once cooked through, add grated paneer to the pan and mix well. d. Add a tablespoon of water and cover with a lid e. Add salt and garam masala. Serve hot. 3. CHEESE FRUIT SALAD © Unsplash If we are talking dairy, then we have to mention cheese. They say cheese makes everything better, but did you know that it makes a great stand-alone snack? 1 cheese cube contains 4 grams of protein – that's almost as much protein as an egg! In fact, you could even say that cheese is a near-perfect substitute for eggs. Plus, it's easy to purchase, store, easy to eat. Recipe: Cheese Fruit Salad a. Cut the cheese cubes into 4 to 6 smaller pieces. b. Peel and chop any fruits of your choice (Crunchy apples, bananas and oranges are an excellent combination). c. Add to a mixing bowl. Add salt, pepper, chaat masala/a squeeze of lemon. d. Add the cheese and mix well. Bon appetite! 4. LENTILS © iStock This one's going to make your mom so happy! Our everyday Toor Dal is also a good source of protein. To get 20 grams of protein, you'd need to eat 90 grams of dal. And not just toor dal – almost every lentil has pretty much the same protein content. So, dig in! Recipe: Simple Dal a. Wash and soak toor dal for 30 minutes. b. Add to a pressure cooker with a pinch of turmeric and enough water to cover the dal. (Pro tip: do not add salt, as it slows down the cooking process). Cook for 4-5 whistles. c. Once the cooker has released its pressure, open the lid and turn on the flame. Add water as needed. d. Add the regular spices and salt (skip the ginger-garlic paste). Bring to a rolling boil. e. Optional: Add a tadka of cumin/mustard seeds and ghee. Garnish with freshly chopped coriander and a sprig of curry leaves. Goes well with hot, steamed rice. 5. BEANS & RICE © iStock Here's a little secret that not many people know – homemade rajma chaawal is a complete source of protein and is a staple food for many bodybuilders. Here's another advantage: it's the ultimate comfort food and guaranteed to keep the lockdown blues away! Recipe: Rajma a. Soak rajma overnight or at least 6-8 hours. b. Add rajma and water to a pressure cooker. Cook on high flame for 4 whistles. Then, reduce the flame to the low and cook for 4 more whistles. c. In a separate pot, add oil/ghee/butter. Add cumin seeds. When they crackle, add onions, tomato puree, ginger-garlic paste and all the regular spices. Cover with a lid and cook for 5 minutes. d. Add the rajma, add salt and water, and cook on a medium flame with the lid on for another 15 minutes. e. Garnish with garam masala and crushed kasuri methi. Serve hot with white rice. Here are some more vegetarian sources of protein that give you 20 grams of high-quality protein: Milk – 650 ml Tofu – 250 grams Greek Yoghurt – 400 grams So, if vegetarian food is all you can eat during this lockdown, make smart choices to preserve your gains and include these items in your diet. They're healthy, cheap and mummy-approved! Author Bio: Utsav Agrawal is a fitness & nutrition expert and a Coach with Fittr, India's leading online fitness platform.

  17. DIY projects, new hobbies, makeup tutorials and homebrewed livestreams - feels like everyone is dabbling in something or the other to make up for their non-existent social lives, and home cooking is no exception. Thousands of accounts on social media have sprung up with users trying their best to relive the restaurant experience in their living rooms, but one eatery, in particular, seems intent on adding more spice and salt than the recipes originally asked for. Most of the fast-food chains we know and love have been incredibly supportive of fans trying to recreate everything from McDonald's burgers to Taco Bellâs Mexican delights - although Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) pulled a serious 180-degree handbrake turn and crash-landed right onto everyoneâs Twitter feeds - giving poor home cooks the 'Gordon Ramsay' treatment they never expected.

Carole cluckin' Baskin wouldn't even feed this to her tigers. 4/10. #RateMyKFC https://t.co/uXoVQ0Ji1K â KFC UK & Ireland (@KFC_UKI) April 7, 2020 This 4/10 near-failure mustâve been quite the disappointment - soon, onlookers began to kick the cooks while they were down. Carole cluckin' Baskin wouldn't even feed this to her tigers. 4/10. #RateMyKFC https://t.co/uXoVQ0Ji1K â KFC UK & Ireland (@KFC_UKI) April 7, 2020 All wasnât bad, though - seems like a few options did better than average, although on a closer look weâre beginning to doubt KFCâs culinary credentials. This is an absolute monstrosity. I feel ill looking at it, but by God I want it. 7.5/10. #RateMyKFC https://t.co/YqycnYzr1H â KFC UK & Ireland (@KFC_UKI) April 7, 2020 Still, quite a few took up the challenge in earnest, making thousands of followers hungrier by the second. As of yesterday, the leaderboard has been dominated by @blondiehaylz, whoâs crispy, golden-brown fried chicken earned her a stunning 9.5. So close yet so far.... Damn those 11 secret herbs and spices ð#ratemykfc @KFC_UKI https://t.co/W84DXiNfeH pic.twitter.com/12DGRSpnEq â hayley probert (@blondiehaylz) April 7, 2020 Close on her heels was runner-up @BlackBerryTina, whoâs bouquet of 8 chicken drumsticks is, from now on, my ideal Valentineâs Day gift - just sayinâ. Might make some kfc chicken later â Race card manufacturer (@BlackBerryTina) April 6, 2020 Think youâre up to giving it a try yourself? Fortunately, a dedicated fried chicken fan by the name of Dan Fell has spent the last 18 months searching for KFCâs elusive secret formula. After over a year of trying, heâs finally reached fried-chicken nirvana, claiming to have discovered a recipe as close as possible to the real thing. You wanted to know how to make #KFC at home. Hereâs my recipe which took me nearly 18 months to perfect. #thedarkKFC pic.twitter.com/gI12R3NDGD â Dan Fell ð­ðð» (@TheKidLewis) March 28, 2020 Dan revealed his recipe, which includes five cups of plain flour, four tablespoons of paprika, two tablespoons of white pepper and garlic powder, one tablespoon of ground ginger, mustard powder, celery salt and black pepper, half a tablespoon of oregano and thyme and one-third of a tablespoon of sea salt. Hope youâve got that notepad ready. Iâve cooked this a huge number of times, you get better each time. Is say my strike rate for âmate you really cannot tell the differenceâ is about 4 out of the last five times. Iâll take that â Dan Fell ð­ðð» (@TheKidLewis) March 28, 2020 Once the flour and seasonings are added together, he uses three parts of the mix to one part of self-raising flour, before giving the chicken an egg wash and rolling it in the seasoning before frying it in hot oil (162.5C, to be exact) for five to six minutes, popping it in a preheated 80C oven for batch cooking and then giving a final 90-second fry before serving. Sounds like a lot of work, but perhaps thatâs what it takes to get a perfect score from KFC. Just remember that if youâre trying - the judges really donât hold back. View the full article
  18. Over the years, we've seen so many heinous crimes committed against food, and honestly, this one might be the most disgusting one yet. Remember that video of someone dipping their pizza in tea before eating? And, even pizza and milk was apparently a thing once. The most recent atroci-tea happened recently when someone was dipping idli in tea. Man, people just love dipping things in tea, I just have one question for them - who hurt you? <blockquote class="reddit-card"><a href="https://www.reddit.com/r/india/comments/eg923k/hello_im_new_to_india_i_hope_im_doing_this_right/" mce_href="https://www.reddit.com/r/india/comments/eg923k/hello_im_new_to_india_i_hope_im_doing_this_right/">Hello, I'm new to India. I hope I'm doing this right.</a> from <a href="http://www.reddit.com/r/india" mce_href="http://www.reddit.com/r/india">r/india</a></blockquote> The same person who recently caused an uproar on Reddit with the idli and tea video took it up a notch and came up with something even more disgusting - chicken tikka and tea. Why? Really, why? <blockquote class="reddit-card" data-card-created="1578050829"><a href="https://www.reddit.com/r/india/comments/ei5hmt/hey_guys_when_i_posted_the_tea_idli_video_uwromit/" mce_href="https://www.reddit.com/r/india/comments/ei5hmt/hey_guys_when_i_posted_the_tea_idli_video_uwromit/">Hey, Guys! When I posted the tea &amp; idli video, u/wromit suggested that I should try "tandoori leg" with tea. I couldn't find a leg piece, but I found what they call "Tikka." At first, I wasn't too sure about it, but after I tried it, I'm really digging the flavor. The after-taste was decent.</a> from <a href="http://www.reddit.com/r/india" mce_href="http://www.reddit.com/r/india">r/india</a></blockquote> I'm vegetarian and I'm still offended. The poor bird shouldn't die for this monstrosity, that's not okay. 'The after-taste was decent' - this has to be a lie, right? I have a very important question for this person - why do you hate yourself so much? From poetry to CAA, the replies have covered everything. Great pun. Umm. Bulla Bhai, are you okay? Let's see what food she's going to ruin next. View the full article
  19. You may have seen this guy at your gym. The one who has an impressive upper body and a laughable lower body. Their legs are non-existent compared to the massive upper body. The reason, well, you know it. No leg days at all. They only keep training their upper body and keep beefing it up. Truth be told, that is not impressive. They are usually referred to as having chicken legs. Are you also someone who has avoided training legs and now has chicken legs? Well, it is not late yet. Start incorporating leg workouts and beef up your legs as well. Why should you be doing that anyway in the first place? - Better physique symmetry - More functionality - Reduced risk of injury - Look fu*king awesome! I am pretty sure the last reason should be enough to convince you. Leg development has always been a part of the physique and bodybuilding sport and your entire body is supported by your legs. © Getty Images It is like the foundation of your house. Would it not make sense to have a strong foundation? Now let's understand the leg muscles. Your legs are made up of mainly 4 muscle groups. They are: 1. Quadriceps 2. Hamstrings 3. Glutes 4. Calves There is another set of lifters who ignore training their hamstrings and glutes, as the classic bodybuilding documentaries did not cover it. Well, do not be that guy. Give equal commitment and dedication to all of these muscle groups if you really want to maximize your leg development and have awesome looking wheels. For maximal development, another thing that I recommend to my clients is to hit a leg workout at least twice a week. The same goes for any other body part. © Getty Images If you are a natural lifter and want to maximize muscle development, ensure that you are training each body part at least twice a week. Here is a sample hypertrophy workout you can start doing for your legs right from the next session: 1. Hip Thrusts - 3 sets of 8 to 12 reps 2. Back Squat or Leg Press - 3 sets of 8 to 12 reps 3. Lying Hamstring Curls - 3 sets of 12 to 15 reps 4. Walking Lunges - 3 sets of 12 to 15 reps 5. Calf raises - 3 sets of 12 to 15 reps Along with this, you can end your session with a farmers walk if you are feeling confident. It will not only work your legs, but it will also engage your core and help you develop arm strength as well. So start working out your legs and do not be the bro that has chicken legs!

  20. One of the first lessons most elementary schools try to imbibe in young minds reads something like, “a simple act of kindness goes a long way”. That is probably what we were also taught back in the day, but while many forget these precious lessons after writing those answers for the moral science paper, there is a young boy who became an overnight sensation for not only keeping this lesson close to his heart, but also applying it when it was most needed. Earlier this month, a 6-year-old boy named Derek C Lalchhanhima from Sairang in Mizoram went viral for inspiring the young and old through a simple act of kindness. Derek had accidentally run over his neighbour's chicken while cycling, and then rushed it to the nearest hospital with all the money he had (Rs. 10) to save it's life! People hailed his kindness and soon Derek turned into a school hero after he was rewarded by School St. Pio with a 'Word of Appreciation' award for his thoughtful gesture. But that's not all. More appreciation and awards have poured in for Derek who has now been declared as a 'Compassionate Kid' by animal rights organisation, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). Underscoring the importance of furthering emotions of empathy and kindness towards animals in young children, PETA made a statement on this honour conferred on Derek and said, “Developing empathy for animals is a key step towards developing empathy for – and rejecting violence against – all beings, including humans. It's important, therefore, that students learn at an early age that the animals with whom we share this planet are, in many ways, not so different from us.” Look at Derek with his PETA award: © Twitter It is great to see the encouragement and appreciation that Derek has received for his sweet act. It will not only further motivate him to keep moving in this path, but also inspired many young minds like Derek to follow in the same footsteps.
  21. The countdown has begun folks. Now, only a few days are left for the release of 'Avengers: Endgame', this year's grandest superhero movie and probably the only one that truly matters. In case you missed it, 'Avengers: Endgame' is releasing on April 26. © Marvel Studios But, do you know what else has begun apart from the countdown? Promotions of the movie, which brought the film's co-director Joe Russo to India. While every desi Marvel fan is curious to know about Thanos' fate and that of the fallen superheroes, there's one man who's only concern is to see Joe Russo's reaction to eating spicy Indian food. The man in question is Thor aka Chris Hemsworth. Looks like Hemsworth wants Joe Russo to not only sweat in the heat, but also feel it in his stomach by eating rogan josh and butter chicken. © Twitter Chris Hemsworth loves India and calls it one of the best places on the planet. Well, we're not surprised, who doesn't love India or Indian food. Hemsworth was in India last year, shooting in Ahmedabad and Mumbai for his upcoming project 'Dhaka'. In fact, Hemsworth, during a fan-event on Monday, expressed his love for the country through a video message where he said "What's up everybody in the beautiful country of India? The countdown has begun. Avengers: Endgame will be in cinemas soon." He further said, "Our director Joe Russo has come to the beautiful country. I have come myself. It is one of the best places on the planet. Sorry couldn't be there this time. Joe thinks he can handle some spicy food and I have told him to try some rogan josh and some butter chicken... see if he can handle the heat. Lot of love guys and hope to see you soon." Let's see if Joe Russo wins the challenge or admits defeat in front of the power of spices in Indian food.
