I ate Ratatouille

No! not the rat! I know when I mentioned Ratatouille you all might think its this rat :

But in actual fact, the correct definition of Ratatouille is this :
Ratatouille (IPA:[rætəˈtui, -ˈtwi]; French pronunciation: [ʁataˈtuj]) is a traditional French Provençal stewed vegetable dish, originating in Nice. The full name of the dish is ratatouille niçoise.

The word Ratatouille comes from "touiller," which means to toss food. Ratatouille originated in the area around present day Nice. It was, originally, a poor farmer's dish, prepared in the summer with fresh summer vegetables. The original Ratatouille Niçoise did not contain eggplant (which would not have been available during the same time period as the other vegetables used). Instead, it used only zucchini (courgettes), tomatoes, green and red peppers (bell peppers), onion, and garlic. The dish known today as Ratatouille adds eggplant (aubergine) to that mixture.

And this is how the actual Ratatouille should looks like (more or less la)

Just the other day I was at my mum's place when I saw my Bro cooking, so i walked up to him and asked him :

Me : What you cooking?
Bro : Ratatouille ....
Me : Rata what??!!
Bro : Ratatouille!!! you know the movie we just watched a few days ago? Ratatouille!
Me : MCH!! You beat me to it??!!! How can??!!!

Yea ... me n my bro n my sis ... we all loves to cook and we also love to do experiment on our food, so my bro beat me to it ... but fear not!!!

This is the Ratatouille recipe he got from his personal cookbook (yea we all got our personal cookbook and personal wok and knives etc etc... we belif a cook should have a personal relationship with all his/her tools wan)

This is how Ratatouille should looks like when its done ....

After seing what he came out with ... we had this conversation :

Me : Bro ... you sure this is Ratatouille?
Bro : Sure!!!
Me : It dont looks like the Ratatouille man ....
Bro : You sure?
Me : I think i know what this is!
