Lucky you. My wife has banned the microwave and stuck it under the bed. She says it’s nuking food and causing cancer. She’s got no proof whatsoever about these claims, but when has that ever stopped a woman?

Have a confession to make. The puttu maker comes with a thin metal rod that’s about a foot long. I always assumed it was to push the cooked hot puttu out. But assumption, as we all know, is the mother of…

Some time after writing that post, I had a ‘duh’ moment. That rod’s real purpose in life is to poke holes through the flour once you fill up the puttu maker. This is to allow the steam to pass through and prevent the pressure from building up. So chances of another explosion happening are now negligible. Oh well, I always did like happy endings.

it’s an odd world
