Cooking etc

October 27, 2006

 

9574.jpgIt’s not been a good week for Indian cooking. I’ve had adjust my focus from dhal to driving lessons. And I would take dhal anyday.

I’m not sure why driving isn’t losing popularity? Clutch control is infinitely more complicated than chopping, stirring and following recipes. But some may beg to differ.

Mind you three pots is the most I’d have going at any one given cooking session. Imagine using three just to make dhal? Hang in there buddy, there is hope yet.

Anyway, focus is most definitely shifting back to Indian cooking this weekend. I thought I’ll make some chana or chick peas. It’ll have to be dead easy, as always, to fit around the whirl of weekend activitiy.

Also, to explain the coin image alongside this post, supermarket vouchers are up for grabs to all UK residents. You need to play to win. This could be just the thing you need to get you started on your Indian food Odyssey.

    I agree conversations with friends over a meal is the best times in life. Those Papad look gorgeous!
