I live somewhere with a kitchen shared by many, and often people will ask questions like "oooh that looks good what is it?" while looking at a load of chicken being cooked, and answering "errr chicken?" would seem rude, so I just get totally tongue-tied.
Or another time I'm making a curry, and someone was like "oh wow what's it called?" and like, when it's something non-specific that you just conjured up not from a recipe, I guess slightly embarrassed without even knowing what the name of something I'm cooking. Maybe I should just say "madras" or whatever since no 2 curry house appear to make the same thing they call "madras" anyway?
Or do you just make up a name? "oh yeah this is called Steve".
