EatTreat brings you different cultures which make Delhi special! This is Picu, he’s from Goa and today I’ll explore his kitchen and secrets! And Rohit and Abhishek, well… But seriously, this is about his journey from Goa to Delhi! So, stay tuned to know What’s Cooking? I am more commonly known as Picu than Rahul, which is my original name The word ‘Picu’ comes from the short form of the word picadinho in Portuguese Which my parents called me as a kid, as I was the youngest one! Ishaan Kashyap, actually his name is, he is the one who… …kept calling me Picu in Delhi and everyone started calling me the same & hence my new chef name is Picu! I spent the first 18 years of my life in Goa As one would imagine, one of the most fun childhoods that one could have! Spent a lot of time playing football on the beach, rarely studying for school or college! So, I happened to have three siblings, me being the youngest! So, I inevitably became the garbage bag of anything & everything… …whoever didn’t want to eat something they did not like, it was passed on to me! Later, I started realizing that I actually started enjoying it because I happened to like everything! So, I got extra food all the time! So, this was something that really helped me develop my taste and my palette! So, I’ll thank all 3 siblings of mine for passing on their wastage, thank you guys! I usually grab something quick to eat when I am in a rush… …I grabbed this chole chawal today, it’s so quick and convenient! Got few calls, went off to Bombay, joined institute called Dadar Catering, The Institue of Hotel Management, Mumbai 3 of the most fun years of my life, lived out in a hostel there! One of the craziest experiences! The new city was absolutely fabulous & within all this mess & large city… …I found my true calling, which was the kitchen, spent a lot of time in there and really enjoyed it! We at Jamun try to… …go in depth, into understanding regional flavors, recipes, trying to source ingredients from across India And recreate memories of childhood! Recreate traditional recipes that were cooked in kitchen, a 100 years ago! What’s up? (reads out the order) Well our endeavor is to celebrate and to actually hone recipes and skills that were passed on by generations And to celebrate traditions! So, that’s how we believe that Indian food would be celebrated internationally as well as nationally! So, this is… …a very traditional Goan Pork Chilly Usually eaten along with a poi bread, which I’ll show you later! It has Goan pork chorizo… …piece of prawn pork belly… …a little bit of kokum, which is a souring agent from Goa… …some fresh red chilly, fresh red tomato, onion, green chilly, cilantro and… …red chilly powder, that’s about it! Extremely tasty dish! Hello, chef! What’s happening, bro? What’s happening! What’s Cooking? So, what are we making today? Well today, we’ve the Goan Pork Chilly that we’ve done right now! On the menu at WeWork, we have a lot more! I am not used to having two cameras It’s one thing to cook when two cameras are on you and another thing to eat when two cameras are on you I think I am more comfortable eating with two cameras on me! I don’t tend to drop things on me, like you do, I’ve seen your videos! I don’t know why they call him a YouTube star, alright… …just because he gets followers for dropping stuff all over himself! That’s why people follow me, so that they can see me drop stuff! Anyway chef, it was great meeting you and I’m going to let you back to work Now you’ll see me at WeWork, see you guys! I am so happy that today food has reached this platform & level as to where it’s… …broken all boundaries, broken all barriers of social status And we can put it together on one menu and celebrate it as a whole, that’s the beauty of Indian food!
