Drawing and Cooking

EDM next, "Draw smth you have made".
Not much I do with my hands besides painting and drawing).
Cooking is hand-made stuff with combines creativity and perceptible result. So today we go into cooking. I draw the products, quickly cook them and post the photo of the result.

1. Boil separately 3-4 middle size potatoes and cup of lentil to "almost" ready state.
2. Heat the oil, stir-fry leek, add 2 cut chicken breasts, add 3 cut paprikas and fry for 10 min.
3. Add cut tomatoes (before cutting pour boiling water over tomatoes and keep it for several minutes, pour out water, easily remove tomato peel) and half glass yogurt.
4. Add 2 tea spoons of Indian spices (oh, how I love them! actually, you can take bread, water, Indian spices and the cooking will be success. Or only Indian spices)). I use this mix (link).
5. Cover the pan, cook for 15 min.
6. Add cube-cut potatoes and lentil, cook 5 min. more.
7. Add well cut dill,  parsley and chopped 2 garlic cloves, salt to taste and cook under cover for final 3 minutes.
48 min, 4 portions, 1 ink+coloured pencils drawing later:




  1. Irina, a fantastic idea to take us to the kitchen. I love it!
    I'll make this recipe as well thought out, the picture of the result seemed very tasty.
    The design of the ingredients is as fantastic as the recipe.
    Very good!

  2. Irina - you are a multi-talented woman! I just discovered this blog and next I will explore you Georgia section! I love how you combined a drawing of the ingredients, the recipe and then the scrumptious end result! I wish I could just snap my fingers and magically appear to join you for a plate of your yummy chicken, potato and dill creation!
    Cheers from your fellow CDP blogger buddy in Minnesota
