I had a ROCKING TIME while making this dish!

I was giving live updates on Instagram and Twitter. It was so much fun! The best part since I was cooking impromptu without any plan, I was giving out details which made my life so simple because I didn't need to jot down quickly after making the dish. I just went with the flow while cooking and it was supa fun :)
