Frogs legs. I clearly remember the first time that I have had this particular dish. I must have been around 13-14 and it was at a Yatch’s club party here in Cochin. This was part of the Lion’s Club programme and my dad and couple of my uncles were members at one time. I remember that along with me & my folks & sister, a bunch of my relatives were there as well. The party/program must have started around 11am and gone on till the early evening hours.
Every was enjoying the nice summer day with the breeze coming in from being right next to the sea. Pristine location, pristine club and they made a great venue even better by the food that they serve. Anyways, I remember that my cousin Raju and I walked in to the bar area, looking for our uncle, who was sipping beer and munching something on a huge plate. We asked him what it was and he replied “Frog’s legs”! “Yuck”! was my reply and my cousin too but on the insistence of our uncle, we decided to reluctantly try a piece each.
Surprisingly we both liked it and liked it a lot. Raju and I sat there and polished the whole plate clean and one of the servers brought more. We loved it so much that my poor uncle probably felt that he made a mistake in introducing it to us. After that day I have tried looking for Forg’s legs but have only had it twice since then.
