  5. All advertisements of Fortune Rice Bran cooking oil featuring the current BCCI president Sourav Ganguly have reportedly been pulled down by Adani Wilmar, merely days after the former captain of the Indian cricket team suffered a ‘mild heart attack’. The cooking oil, that had Ganguly promote it, talked about how the product was ‘healthy for the heart’ and the irony was enough for the Indian social media users to bombard the brand with trolls and memes. Saurav Ganguly was the brand ambassador for ‘healthy for heart, Fortune oil’, had a heart attack. The great Indian irony...!!! pic.twitter.com/yVg8uozhVd — Mr. Dalit️ (@MrDalit) January 3, 2021 With a tagline that said: 'A heart healthy oil that gives you the power of immunity', the brand was criticised online for not living up to it’s words after the cricketer suffered a heart attack last week. According to reports, Ganguly was in the gym when he complained of uneasiness. He was later taken to the Woodland Hospital in his hometown of Kolkata further tests and it was revealed that he had indeed suffered a mild heart attack. Saurav Ganguly... Brand Ambassdor of "Fortune heart healthy oil" admitted for a Heart blockage Adviced 3 stents *What a catch*........ pic.twitter.com/9s9y3icMLN — BK Agrawal (@isrtc8) January 3, 2021 “The advertising featuring Ganguly has been removed across platforms,” one of the persons who is closely working on the campaign, was quoted as saying by the Economic Times. “Ogilvy & Mather, creative agency for the brand, is looking into the issue and is working on a fresh redressal campaign," he added. Ganguly had undergone angioplasty on Saturday and will continue to remain under strict observation of the team of doctors who are treating him. The BCCI president is likely to be discharged on Wednesday and doctors will continue to observe him at his home. His further treatment plan will also be discussed with Ganguly in the coming weeks.

  6. Gordon Ramsay is the best at roasting people, his insults are literally iconic and it's amazing to see him call people 'donkeys' or 'idiot sandwiches'. But, Gordon Ramsay actually getting roasted is a rare and beautiful sight and only a few people have actually managed to successfully do it. And, the best part is that it's actually his children who know perfectly how to put him in his place. View this post on Instagram His daughter Tilly really seems to know how to push her dad's buttons in the most hilarious way. An old video of her 'owning' Gordon with a simple comment is something straight out of a meme, and it's still hard to believe it's actually real. And, she's done it again! Gordon recently shared a TikTok video he made with Tilly where they take part in the latest This or That challenge. View this post on Instagram Imagine being the best chef in the world and your kid still picks her mom's cooking over yours, only Gordon can relate. Also, shoutout to the Ramsays for giving everyone the best and most wholesome version of this trend. © Instagram People really can't believe this, just because of how funny it is. © Instagram The coolest dad, for sure. © Instagram He definitely did! © Instagram View the full article
  7. Hina Altaf and Aagha Ali are breaking the internet and fans think there is more to the duo than what meets the eye. It is Hina Altaf’s birthday today (Thursday) and Aagha Ali made sure that she celebrates it in one-of-a-kind manner by throwing her a surprise birthday that had everything from decorations to gifts on point. Aagha, who is not a big fan of celebrating his own birthday, made sure everything for Hina were perfect. In a video going viral of late, Hina can be seen taken aback by all the decorations on her birthday from what seems to be a surprise celebration planned by Aagha for her. He went on to shower her with gifts and flowers on her special day, making people think as to what is going on between them. While Aagha took to his Instagram to wish the birthday girl, Hina too thanked him for all his efforts on her birthday. The duo’s fans are speculating their status as of now; whether they are just friends or harbour special feelings for each other. While some believe this may be the start of a new relationship, others think what Aagha did is just a sweet gesture for a friend. Aagha was previously dating Sarah Khan for a considerable amount of time, before parting ways with her due to personal reasons and since then they have not been spotted together.
  8. Being discriminated against because of any reason is one of the worst things ever. It becomes even more infuriating when that discrimination comes in the way of someone following their dreams and that kind of stuff can mess with anyone. Something like this happened to 18-year-old Louis Makepeace, who has dwarfism. He's a 3ft 10in tall chef who has been refused a place at Heart of Worcestershire College, where he was first accepted on a conditional basis. He claims college bosses branded him a “health and safety risk” to the other 14 pupils and would cause a “disruption” if he got under their feet. Wow, that's just downright disgusting. Imagine taking away someone's opportunity and also crushing them at the same time! He said, “We are supposed to have equality of opportunity, yet I'm not allowed to do something I love doing. They said I would be a health and safety risk and disruption to the other students and get in their way, which was really humiliating. It really has dented my confidence. How am I ever supposed to get the culinary skills that's going to get me a job in a catering environment?” We all know and love Gordon Ramsay as the hilariously brutal food critic on Twitter, but today one his tweets stood apart as being an incredible gesture. Someone brought Louis' story to his attention and he had the best response. @GordonRamsay Shame on Heart of Worcester College for being too short sighted pic.twitter.com/QwIbm61iyK — Filomena (@immac64) August 28, 2018 Here's what he replied. Disgusting attitude, I'd offer him an Apprenticeship any day. https://t.co/xYdfWJ7CLK — Gordon Ramsay (@GordonRamsay) August 28, 2018 I agree, this is a disgusting attitude and I really do hope Gordon follows up with his offer and make someone's life. A lot of people in the replies urged him to come through and follow up. Call him gordon x — aiki (@COSMlC_GAYS) August 28, 2018 Exactly. Shame on Worcester college for discrimination of Differently able people. — uday naganath (@UdayNaganath) August 28, 2018 Everyone deserves a chance. Do it! He will make a great chef, and will be a fantastic apprentice simply because he has the passion to do it. I really hope you give this young man a chance, and learning from you he could have a stellar career ahead of him. — Russell Nicol (@russ_nicol) August 28, 2018 The best! Gordon Ramsay you are absolutely the best ð — çiÄdemâï¸ (@cdmkapukaya75) August 28, 2018 Someone came out with the receipts. Also just to add to my tweet I have seen the kitchen classrooms at Worcester campus one of the classrooms has its own sections/workstations with everything you need to cook, counters/sink/stove they could put him in his own workstation out of the way very easily, no excuse. — Jordan Leaman (@Mr_JordanL) August 28, 2018 Louis' mom said that the course leaders claimed it wouldn't make sense for her son to do the course since he would “never be allowed to work in a restaurant anyway”. She added, “This just goes to prove they are wrong if Gordon Ramsay is coming out in support. Louis is a huge fan of his and we would be very interested in speaking to his people if he is serious about it. It has made his day just getting his backing.” Well, hopefully everything works out for Louis.
  9. Remember the flame-thrower Elon Musk made? Well, customers have started receiving the $500 fiery beast last weekend and owners have already started using it for nefarious purposes. © The Boring Company The flame-thrower is being used by customers for various activities such as preparing donuts, cooking meat, lighting marijuana cigarettes and other activities. People took to social media with photographs of them carrying out these activities. Elon Musk had sold a very limited amount of flamethrowers in February, around 20,000 of them in order to raise money for the Boring Company's next venture. Musk managed to raise $10 million for his high-speed tunnel project thanks to this torch gun. The project is aiming to build a network of tunnels that will transport vehicles using electric skates. This project, if fruitful, is expected to reduce traffic on the surface. © Twitter Flamethrowers and its history are a bit dark, as it was once used in trench warfare in World War I. Firefighters also use flamethrowers for back-burning, a process that creates controlled burns in order to contain a fire by destroying wood preemptively. Here are some ridiculous things people are doing with Elon Musk's flamethrower. COOKING WITH A FLAMETHROWER! ðð¥ https://t.co/6rLuVkN1da@iPhonedo pic.twitter.com/TmoAXNeRuN — Justine Ezarik (@ijustine) June 18, 2018 And this is what you've been waiting for, a man lighting a joint with a flamethrower! You knew this would happen! @elonmusk @RAWLIFE247 #NotAFlamethrower pic.twitter.com/iJgsZmkEDN — Maxamilian Demian (@Maxoplata) June 10, 2018 Somebody should warn these people that fire is not a thing you should play, as it is extremely unpredictable and will definitely cause harm to someone who isn't paying attention. If you're one those people who want to get a flamethrower of your own, you're out of luck and TBC is not making anymore anytime soon.
  10. Pop star Daler Mehndi, who was slapped with charges of human trafficking in 2003, was convicted today. He and his brother Shamsher Singh were sentenced to jail for 2 years after the verdict was announced. However, that is not the highlight of this whole situation. Daler got a jail term but was also bailed out, in under 2 minutes. So basically, he got the bail faster than I can cook Maggi. I tried finding solace on Twitter, wondering if anyone was echoing my thoughts. Turns out, people had some hilarious things to say. #DalerMehndi bailed by patiala court is faster than dominos deliver pizza — Chirag (@igot10on10) March 16, 2018 #DalerMehndi arrested n got bail too.. 15yrs to get convicted n 15mins to get bail... ð#DalerConvicted — crime master gogo (@vipul2777) March 16, 2018 Meanwhile, #DalerMehndi Convicted By Patiala Court In 2003 Human Trafficking Case.

The judicial system here is like a piece of clay which can be moulded by people with power and money.
  11. Are you the kind of person who'd love to gorge on a good meal without lifting as much as a finger? Then you, my friend, have come to the right place.

Let the chicken marinate for about 10 minutes. Pro-tip: If you're not in a hurry, let the chicken marinate for about 1 hour. Trust me, this is a game changer!. To make your spicy chicken fry, add two tablespoons of oil to a deep bottom dish (a cooker would do, too!) and throw in your chopped onions, green chillies, and curry leaves. . Give it a quick stir and add in the marinated chicken and mix well.

Once the tomatoes are soft, add two tablespoons of the arrabiata pasta sauce and mix it well with chicken and the veggies. .Add half a cup of water, 1 tablespoon of cream, salt, pepper, and chilli flakes and let the sauce simmer for about 5 minutes. After this, add your cooked penne pasta to the sauce and mix it all together. Your pasta is now ready to be served!

  12. The ever-smiling and cheeky celebrity chef and famous TV host, Gary Mehigan became a popular name in India, when Masterchef Australia become a one-stop cookery show for many people across the country.

What's privilege to meet, talk & cook with this guy @chefatulkochhar at NRI in Mumbai Food was so delicious Thankyou Atul & the teamð @chefnrimumbai #nrimumbai #delicious #yum #greatfood #foodie #mumbai #indianfood #india #loveindia #lovemumbai #chefslife #foxlife #comingtofoxlife A post shared by Gary Mehigan (@garymehigan) on Nov 19, 2017 at 8:58pm PST You're One Of Few Celebrity Chefs Who Rides Bikes. What's Your Bike Story? (Laughs). I have got three of them and I ride regularly, it's my chill out hobby. How Did Cooking Happen To You? My grandfather was a chef, so when I was young I was deciding what I wanted to be in my life. I thought I wanted to be an engineer like my dad. So I used to study Physics and Chemistry when I was growing up. And then I got to see what my granddad was doing and he always seemed very happy. He loved people, enjoyed what he did. He obviously cooked beautiful things and I was kind of leaning towards that. Then I got a job on the weekend at a local hotel when I was 16 and then I got hooked on to cooking. I loved the excitement of the kitchen and obviously making delicious things helped. © Star World What Does Gary Mehigan's Spice Box Consist Of? One of my favourite spices is the green cardamom (laughs), coriander, fennel seeds, I love black pepper too. Then I love fresh aromatic curry leaves, I have got a plant of it. I have got fresh lemongrass, fresh coriander and lots of ginger. One Cooking Advice You Would Like To Give Men? (Laughs) I think times have changed certainly when I talk to young boys who are 15-16. There is no division what was there before like a man's job or a woman's job. But I have one advice for men: find that one thing you always you love to cook or eat. It can be anything curry, barbeque and just practise it and become an expert at that. So when you invite people over, you have something to fill in. © Star World What's Next? More Culinary Shows, Another TV Series, Celebrity Dinners? Next is my show 'Far Flung' which will air on Fox Life. I have travelled to Mumbai and Delhi for it and tried out various local spices and culinary style. It was an amazing experience. I tried out some great things, the show will release at the end of February. How Was Your Experience In Masterchef This Time? It was really exciting actually because season 9 is probably one of the best. This time we had lots of young contestants and interesting new food. There were a lot of patterns, constructions and some classy cooking of some tasty food. Masterchef Australia airs in India on Star World and if you have seen this time we have worked hard and tried to find some really good home cooks. The kind of cooking is very delicious. We have tried to get the diversity of Indian, Pakistani, Australian, Greek, we tried to get the cultural influence. In fact, most of the dishes were that I have never seen before. We have got a mixed bag, some young ones but also some old ones. I presume this pic is strictly for Indian fans...! @ileana_official is a proper superstar of Indian cinema & a kindred food spirit.....ð#superstar #bollywood #ileanadcruz #india #mumbai #food #delicious #foodie #foxlife #comingtofoxlife #lovetotravel #chefslife A post shared by Gary Mehigan (@garymehigan) on Nov 21, 2017 at 10:55am PST You Biggest Cooking Disaster? I had a few but I try to forget them. But I remember that once a long time ago, I was cooking for a wedding and I had put 150 portions of fish inside the oven. And then the fan went off so I got distracted. And I just forgot the fish, so instead of cooking it for 8 minutes, I cooked it for 25 minutes which totally ruined all of the 150 portions. Very expensive mistake! But luckily we had enough portion left for the function and we could recook again but if we hadn't, it would be an utter disaster with hundred and fifty people with no food. I have been cooking for 35 years and I have made many mistakes but it becomes a part of learning things and making it better. A good mistake is a quick one and a cheap one. (laughs) Two Easy Fix Dishes For Males Who Are Trying To Impress Their Lady Loves? Make a tasty, easy-to-prepare salad, with a lot of lettuce in it. Keep everything ready and something that is easy to go so you are not very distracted by the kitchen. Something that you can prepare in advance and just set it up when your lady arrives. And a really good chocolate mousse, light and tasty. Something that you both can share in a bowl or both can make together.

I totally love batata bhaji and coriander chutney. I just love the taste of it...OMG! One Indian You Would Like To Cook For And What Would It Be? India is going through a transition period. There is a lot of good and a lot of bad, I would like to sit with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and know what are his plans, what's his vision and where is India going. And what would I cook for him? I think I will have to go for a week's session to find out what all he likes and that would be the smart thing to do. I would cook something from his childhood, that he really loves or likes and it could always have a little 'Gary' twist (laughs).

  14. Boxer Amir Khan. Photo: The Mirror Pakistani-British boxer Amir Khan is back in news. We heaved a sigh of relief after the chaos in his personal life finally ended when the boxer and wife, Faryal Makhdoom, waved the white flag last month, but it seems like Amir can?t seem to stay away from stirring controversy. The latest statements from Khan, who is participating in the reality show I?m A Celebrity? Get Me Out of Here!, have stirred a toxic controversy and left the public scandalised. In a recent interview with BBC Asian Network, the 30-year-old said that once he comes home from work, it?s his wife?s job to cook for him. ?I would never cook,? said Khan. ?In my culture, women, that?s their job to do the cooking. They?re best at cooking.? It could have stopped there, but he had more to add. ?It?s a man?s job to actually do other jobs like the hard work, the hard labour jobs around the house.? ?Doing housework is harder,? the interviewer argued, ?I would not get as tired on my job as I do when I work at home. Until you don?t do it for yourself, you won?t realise how hard that is.? To which Khan replied, ?I?ve got a dishwasher, washing machine, I?ve never actually known how to use these things. I would never touch those machinery, ever. You would turn into a woman. I?m a man. If I started dishwashing ?? A woman had to take up sanity?s cause. She interrupted the boxer and asked, ?If you use the machine, you would turn into a woman?? Amir then said, ?Yeah.? And Twitter can?t handle it!

My keema is also excellent... my chicken is okay,? he quipped. When asked if he knew how to make roti, Obama said, ?Ah, no, making a chapati is too hard?.

  17. Angelina Jolie pictured with her kids Zahara and Shiloh in 2015 LOS ANGELES: Angelina Jolie has put movie-making on hold to become a better mom, take cooking classes and do ordinary tasks like picking up dog poop. In an interview with Vanity Fair released on Wednesday, the actress said life after splitting in September from husband Brad Pitt was focused on looking after her health and her children. "I actually feel more of a woman because I feel like I'm being smart about my choices, and I'm putting my family first, and I'm in charge of my life and my health. I think that's what makes a woman complete," Jolie said. Her latest film as a director, "First They Killed My Father," about the Khmer Rouge regime in the 1970s, under which more than 1 million people died, had its premiere in Cambodia in February. It is due to be released globally and on Netflix in September. Apart from promoting the film, Jolie said she had no interest in working on another movie right now. She has primary custody of her six children with Pitt pending a final settlement of their divorce. "I'm just wanting to make the proper breakfast and keep the house," she told Vanity Fair. Jolie said the children had been "very brave" since the split from Brad Pitt "That's my passion. At the request of my kids, I'm taking cooking classes. As I go to sleep at night, I think, 'Did I do a great job as a mom or was that an average day?'" "I've been trying for nine months to be really good at just being a homemaker and picking up dog poop and cleaning dishes and reading bedtime stories," she said. "And I'm getting better at all three." Jolie, 42, a special envoy for the United Nations refugee agency, said the children had been "very brave" since the split from Pitt. "They're six very strong-minded, thoughtful, worldly individuals. I'm very proud of them. They've been very brave. They were very brave," she said. Jolie revealed that she had developed hypertension, and Bell's Palsy - a weakness in facial muscles that can cause one side of the face to droop slightly - since the separation from Pitt, but had recovered thanks to acupuncture. Jolie's interview appears in the September issue of Vanity Fair, out on newsstands on Aug. 8.
  18. Ever since his retirement from international cricket, Sachin Tendulkar seems to have been enjoying his time off the field. Apart from being a part of the BCCI's three-member Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) alongside Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman, the 'Master Blaster' is an avid user of social networking websites in a bid to stay connected to his fans and the sport. From posting congratulatory messages for fellow cricketers to showering praise on talented youngsters, Tendulkar doesn't shy away from speaking his mind on popular social media platforms like Twitter or Instagram. But, on Sunday, a post on his Instagram page was solemnly dedicated to someone special. It wasn't a cricketer, nor any other celebrity. Tendulkar was all praise for his son Arjun who had prepared breakfast for his father. Lauding Arjun's efforts, Tendulkar took to Instagram and wrote: "Breakfast in bed cooked by my son Arjun :-) best breakfast ever!!!" Breakfast in bed cooked by my son Arjun :-) best breakfast ever!!! A post shared by Sachin Tendulkar (@sachintendulkar) on Jul 2, 2017 at 2:29am PDT Last month, Sachin was seen promoting his biopic, Sachin: A Billion Dreams which garnered the biggest opening in India in all languages earning massive Rs 8.40 crore on its first day. The movie was also released in 2400 screens in India and 400 screens overseas. Reuters In his glorious 24-year cricket career, Tendulkar scored highest ODI and Test runs in the history of cricket. He is also the only batsman to have scored 100 centuries in international cricket. India's greatest-ever cricketer scored record 18,111 runs in ODIs and 14,692 in Tests. On the other hand, Tendulkar will have a crucial role to play in the capacity of BCCI's CAC which has been entrusted with the responsibility to determine India's next head coach. Tendulkar, along with Ganguly and Laxman, will be conducting interviews for the top job on 10 July in Mumbai. After Anil Kumble's decision to step down from the high-profile position last month, the likes of Virender Sehwag, Tom Moody, Lalchand Rajput, Richard Pybus, Dodda Ganesh, Ravi Shastri and Venkatesh Prasad have applied for the position of India's head coach.
  19. Photo: File Italy's highest court ruled on Friday that lobsters must not be kept on ice in restaurant kitchens because it causes them unjustifiable suffering before they head for death by fine dining. Judges accepted a complaint by an animal rights group against the owner of a restaurant near Florence who kept live crustaceans on ice, ordering him to pay a 2,000 euro fine ($5,593) and a further 3,000 euros in legal fees. Upholding a sentence by a lower court, the Cassation court ruled that the fact that lobsters are usually cooked while still alive does not mean they can be mistreated beforehand. "While the particular method of cooking can be considered legal by recognizing that it is commonly used, the suffering caused by detaining the animals while they wait to be cooked cannot be justified in that way," the judges wrote. Rather than keeping lobsters and other crustaceans refrigerated, the court said it was already common practice in high-level restaurants and even supermarkets to keep them in oxygenated water tanks at room temperature. ($1 = 0.8939 euros)
  20. Screen grab of the substandard oil being discarded by PFA officials LAHORE: A factory where animal fat was being used to produce cooking oil was sealed and two perpetrators arrested late Saturday night. Teams of the Punjab Food Authority (PFA), led by its director-general Noorul Amin Mengal, raided the factory while operations were under way there and seized 14,000 litres of the substandard oil. PFA officials said the oil was being prepared ? mostly at night to avoid suspicion ? in huge quantities to cater to the ?Ramazan demand?. Two people were arrested and an FIR has been registered, the officials informed. The officials further stated that records of sales and supply of raw material have also been confiscated so as to nab all those involved in the scam. In January this year, the PFA raided a cooking oil production factory and sealed it after discovering questionable processes and unhealthy elements in its products. A total of 50,000 litres of cooking oil was confiscated from the factory after it was found that chicken waste was being used to manufacture the product. The oil was said to be under use in a number of hotels in the city.
