There is a popular saying in the Malayalam film industry that even Mohanlal’s fingers can act. In a recently shared Instagram video, the legendary icon’s fingers are seen playing with fire. A self-confessed foodie, Mohanlal is always game to try out different dishes and cuisines.
In the video, Mohanlal perfects the French cooking technique of flambé in which alcohol is added into a hot pan to create a burst of flames. Mohanlal flambé a whole pomfret by setting fire to the hot pan and the dish looks drool-worthy.
Flambé is a popular French cooking technique in which alcohol or wine is added into the hot pan and set fire to give a special smoky flavour to the dish. It was the actor’s wife Suchitra who found out the recipe for this amazing dish. Suchitra is a fan of plump, white pomfret fish. Mohanlal and Suchitra had cooked this unique delicacy in the kitchen at their flat in Kochi.
Meanwhile, the video was shot and shared on the social media by the actor’s close friend Sameer Hamsa. Mohanlal enjoys cooking tasty dishes for his friends and relatives. His fans have already begun celebrating the ‘flambé’ video of the screen icon.
Chefs who are experts in doing flambé are seen standing close to the stove as they can assess the intensity of the flames. However, untrained home cooks or rookie chefs are advised against trying this intense cooking method as the flames, if not handled properly, could burn your face or body.
