scratch as in the paneer as well? If so hat off for serious hardcore cooking


We do use a premix masala for palak paneer, but its the Pukka stuff bought over when wife's parents come back from snowbirding each spring. I did try and count the number of different spices and mixes we have in the house now and gave up as there are things squirreled away all over the place. Of course the recipes are handed down mother to daughter so I've failed to fully learn any of them and need supervising at spice adding times.


I have to say the last 6 years of marriage have been delicious

No, we have a first rate market that carries all the basics. I have done it in the past, Vermont has some great high fat whole milk.

I have a weakness for gulab jamun and I was thinking of doing the evaporating of the milk all day on the stove one more time. I have the rose water, saffron, and cardamom ready.

I just got caught by the third track of Gił la testa a lesser known film (Duck You Sucker here) Morricone's vocal effects are genius.

Hmmm I can get unpastuerised Jersey milk from nearby now direct from the farm, which makes the most amazing rice pudding* but not sure I have the patience to make gulab jamun from scratch. Esp as everyone sells it round here now we have enough density of tech firms to have a significant Indian presence in the town (much to annoyance of wife)


*Not sure if good oven baked rice pudding has the same evocation of childhood outside uk as a go to stodge to fill up the family. Happy memories of fighting for the skin on the top and losing

Is the second thing a dish or a description of your sambar? I don't know what cottage pie is, so...

My memories of Karnataka feature idli and vada with coconut chutney and sambar every morning (well not every morning as my body rebelled with the screaming s***s for a week). I still make vada and sambar from time to time, which reminds me I am out of tamarind.

I thought cottage pie was shepard's pie with beef rather than lamb.

So the grilled lobster test went OK. Sorry Scott but the killing did not go well, the first one mostly behaved itself and appeared to die without too much fuss. The second one went ape-s*** after its head was cut in two, legs kicking and turned itself on its side and kept moving for quite a while. I eventually had to pour a large drink and leave the room for a few minutes. Once it finally settled down I returned and removed the elastics from the claws, and suddenly the first one, which had been completely inert for about ten minutes, suddenly sprang back to life and started propelling itself backwards with violent flapping of its tail! It was all a bit much and nothing like the Youtube videos. Anyway they eventually made it to the grill and turned out pretty OK, though perhaps not all I had hoped. I think when my nephew and his wife are here in a couple of weeks we will revert to the tried and true method, though I will be trying this again. The parts that were good about it were very good, but different than we are used to or I expected. So not done but not rushing to repeat. Pics later.

PS yeah tourist season so $12/lb!!

You just need to channel yourself into a Quentin Tarantino movie.

I don't need you to tell me how good my coffee is, okay? I'm the one who buys it, I know how good it is. But you know what's on my mind right now? It ain't the coffee in my kitchen, it's the dead lobster in my kitchen!

I guess I'm just some kind of ******* who does not even know what I say means to anyone else.
