I found a prepared but unpublished post from late last year. I hope you don’t mind if I post it now. They are still great links.
I am not going to post these links in the future – but you can join me on Twitter to keep up with goodies that I find.
I wanted to start with a wonderful post from Arunchala Grace on Palm Leaf People, people from everyday Indian life created by an artist in Tirruvannamalia.
- This weekend I have been thinking about grilled haloumi a lot. Then I saw this Grilled Cheese with Cranberry. From Paulchen’s Food Blog.
- Like cauliflower? Then try my Cauliflower Walnut Cream. OR go to Coffee and Cornbread to try Dill and Colby Cheese Mashed Cauliflower.
- At the local Indian restaurant, just down the road from me, I eat two things – paneer tika and masala dosa. All the rest I can make myself just as well, but these, they are exceptional. Now, Tonguetickler shows how to make Hara Paneer Tika. It looks exceptional.
- Have a look at Fankauser’s Cheese Page. How to make all sorts of cheeses and yoghurt. As well as Root Beer!?. Be careful, there are a few very non-vegetarian links there. Avoid those.
- Morsels and Musings writes about sorbat susu, an Indonesian ginger milk drink. Sounds delicious.
- From the same author comes a Tamarind and Peppercorn broth. Mmmm. Spicy.
- Then a spicy tomato sambal, a sauce or spread from north east India. From My Food Blog. Quick to make, she ate it all on toast for breakfast. And what about a spicy eggplant spread? From Fat Free Vegan.
- Khichuri / Khitchdi is a wonderful, comforting, easy to digest dish, great at any time but especially when you are recuperating. This version is from Quick Indian Cooking.
- I have featured a lot of Indian spice mixes in this Tempting! series. Here is an Ethiopian spice mix. Melange Barbere, from Rosa’s Yummy Yums. HOT.
- A couple of writings on cloves, that warm but earthy spice that makes such a difference when used in tiny amounts. First, a post from Supreme Spice Blog. The second post is from Ayurwhat? I like reading her blog, as a reminder of the quieter things of life and to keep focused on a wonderful peacefulness.
- And WHF elucidates the great benefits of Ginger.
- Lisa’s Kitchen has a beautifully aromatic Black Bean Indian Curried Soup. While you are there, have a look at her roundup of No Croutons Required.
Grainy and Nutty
- Culinate has a lovely glossary of grains - look up your fav grain, pulse or lentil.
- A quite unusual dish – North African Chickpea Flour Cookies, from Is that my bureka?
- This looks too good to be true, too healthy to be nice, too nice to be healthy. New World Quinoa Salad from Red Ramekin.
- Cashew croquettes? So good. From Tasty Palettes.
- I am quite a fan of Basundi. Evolving Tastes shows how to make it.
- I think I have linked to this before, but am keen to do it again. I love this drink, Sweet, Hot Cardamon Chocolate. From Delhi Belle.
- Foodielicious shows how to freeze parsley for use all through winter. I have done this myself and it works so well. Freeze some peas and corn as well. In bottles. Lunch in a Box has the method.
- While on peas, Chocolate and Zucchini shows how to shell them.
- Want to extract your own coconut milk? My Food Blog shows how, using the weirdest implement. Well, actually, it is not weird in the coconut growing countries. I first saw one of these years ago in a local Indian shop, but they don’t sell them any more. I have seen them in India tho, and a similar one in Bali.
- After that, create your own Lemon Balm Syrup, from Paulchen’s Food Blog.
