Default Pakoras!

Tonight was pakoras, deep-fried fritters of mixed vegetables in a lightly-spiced chick-pea batter. Vegetables included onions, potatoes, carrots, spinach, zucchini, cauliflower. After they are fried I sprinkle them with some "chat masala"; in India every street vendor of snacks (aka "chat walla") has his own mix of masala, which usually includes salt and amchur (dried mango powder) as well as hot and aromatic spices, so it is sour, salty, and hot. I ate them with rice and lentils, plus some home-made mango chutney, and a little something to wash it all down.

The Gealic Scotch is news to me.

Te Bheag nan Eilean (pronounced "chay vek nan yellen"), from the Isle of Skye. It has an unusually high proportion of malt for a blended Scotch, not widely available. For some strange reason it has been sold here in Nova Scotia for decades. It is very good, and definitely has some of the "Skye" character (a bit of smoke, a hint of salt).

2 c cider vinegar
1 tbsp sea salt
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
6 black peppercorns
6 allspice berries
6 cloves

Combine all ingredients in a large stainless steel pot and bring to a
boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook, uncovered, for about 2 hours, until
it is the consistency of commercial ketchup. Allow to cool slightly,
then puree in blender until very smooth. Return to heat for several
minutes to thicken further, stirring often. Strain and cool.
I finally did homemade ketchup! it was incredible, never tried a so delicious sauce. The only con would be that maybe 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper is a bit on the hot side, as I am not used to spicy ketchup, but not too hot. Just a taste matter. Thank you very much!
I would post some pictures but somehow my mobile phone has deleted all my pictures I had stored! grrrrrr!!!

I just ended up buying a packet of chili powder, due to not knowing the exact ingredients. Otherwise, it is a fast a easy way to make chili at least for the first time. I haven't cooked it yet, but I liked the idea of only adding the fresh ingredients and see what happens. Then I will try to add the thing at my own, after cooking a first batch

When our CSA has .5$ a pound tomatoes it's on my list to try. BTW CSA's here is SF? I realize now what a crime syndicate the wine and spirits industry is in MA, but I still see more artisanal farming in New England.

Yeah, there are, but let me share two secrets with you, both in Fairfield: Larry's and Parker Farms (Suzie Parker grows the best tomatoes I've ever had). Of course, you've also got Berkeley Bowl, the finest produce store in the world. So I never bothered with the CSA there, but we depend on it here.

This encourages me to try variations on it. I never beleived I (24 years old, today's my birthday ) was able to outperform a commercial brand. But I neither beleived I was able to outperform a commercial amplifier 4 years ago, but I did (and do) .
