our vishwakarma lunch was tandoori pomfret. evening snack (to double as dinner) will be luchis and cholar dal at a pooja in one of our yards locally.

marinated pomfrets placed on the grill:

sourcing charcoal was a problem -- we had to contact a dealer. as you know, in the US it is convenient -- you get them in packets in stores.

hi club member. the grill folds neatly into a rectangular box so storing is not a problem. we have a small attic/loft in the kitchen -- that's where it goes. only the grill is washed with soap; the burner is cleaned with a wet cloth. it also has baffles or grids for more even temerature but we haven't used them yet. i think we will bring it out maybe 4/5 times a year. i think we will try chicken tikkas or chicken tangdis in winter (i don't know if it suitable for a whole tandoori chicken -- a tandoor might be more suitable for that).

illegal mining of coal is passe. illegal mining of sand and minerals is what is in the headlines now. i'm not much impressed with your knowledge about the indian scene. try harder next time... sawrry (dil pe mat lena).

i wish you exhibited the same passion for the state of the indian economy and politics instead of obsessing over vacuous, unimportant stuff like dark, earthy skin and, as they used to say in old old sulekha, "atta girl! you brown, dusky beauty showed 'em whites who is prettiest!"

rich coming from someone who's only demonstrated passion is food.

who cares about the state of the indina economy or its politics if one can't even walk safely on the streets during the day?

still the educated thing to do is keep up with the news but i don't cuz it takes up too much time with no returns for me. it's fun to argue about politics but look at the number of links and reading idefix and max and ole lena etc are doing. and as far as i know it doesn't change outcomes. i stick to the things that i see and observe firsthand and one of them is racism and bigotry. i keep an eye on one or two political topics that have relevance to my work and my city and that's enough.

perhaps you'll take your own advice in order to balance the vacuous nature of my posts.

i am not the one seeking higher moral ground or standing on a pedestal so attacking me will serve no purpose. you are the one lecturing and hectoring about how brown is beautiful. to think replacing arab looking actors with dusky girls will make the streets safe is ludicrous (if that were the message you wished to communicate by your lecturing -- it probably wasn't but you seem to have taken an even higher ground).

In anticipation of a super-typhoon, I had a lunch consisting of my favorite roast duck and roast pork, washed down with Tsingtao lawnmower beer.

Later in the evening, still waiting in my perch overseeing the harbour for any telltale signs of the promised typhoon, I finished half a bottle of a very mellow Shiraz-Malbec. In that very happy state of mind, I had a corned beef rueben for dinner, that was really awesome. The tang of the sauerkraut and mustard were nicely balanced by the beef. And for the first time, I had a rueben that was not of American proportions i.e. so humongous that I find it difficult to figure out where to begin.

had idli made with ragi flour this weekend and it was great. it was served with spicy chicken curry, which made it that much greater. what spoilt the experience was this lambic beer I got from central market, with it's sour after taste and smell

Oh yeah. The so-called super-typhoon was a damp squib. It was just another dreary, rainy day. After all the hype and drama, Usagi was a letdown. The local TV channels tried their best to make the storm look worse than it was, with visuals of women wrestling with umbrellas in the strong gusts, but I still felt cheated of a spectacle.

The only consolation was that the Malbec was very good and I had the foresight to stock up on two bottles.

Oh I had high expectations of a "super" typhoon. But it turned out to be nothing. TV's best attempt to portray the storm flatteringly cut no ice with me - those women and their unruly umbrellas could well have been in New York on a gusty day. Hence the "but".

you wanted nature to put on a spectacular show while you sip your fancy wine? and you are disappointed that it went off course? think of all those people who may have suffered, the damage caused. time you attended the inner engineering course offered by sadhguru and made yourself a better person.

wow..impeccable bhaturae ! in the chole, embellishment with those glassy translucent concentric circles encompassed by exotic purple boundaried onion is so conspicuosly absent and of course the seductive shimmering fluorescent green chillies to walk you down the garden path is missling as well.. perhaps you rushed to take the picture before the bhature got deflated

Vada pav with cherry on top?
..with cherry tomato on top - i don't like the concept of vada pav or pav baaji.

hellsu, who would put a cherry on a vada pav? come on... it has to be a baby tomato. only garlic chutney can rescue a vada pav if at all.

good question! because of the use of gelatin (that gives it the smooth texture), there isn't any indian equivalent. but a comparison can be made with rabri -- both are cream, milk, sugar and served cold. there are many other indian sweets that are milk + sugar + cold but only rabri (i think) sticks to the bare essentials and doesn't involve khoya or pulses or ghee or deep frying. but i'm the wrong person to ask this question of. i am not much into desserts. MD is and is more knowledgeable about aspects culinary.

Just saw this. Looks very delish. I particularly love raspberries and the sauce appears yummy. It doesn't seem easy to make.

thanks, GC. it isn't all that hard to make in terms of labour - getting the right consistency and flavour is the main challenge. syrups are rather easy to make. i added a dash of amaretto to the panna cotta.

Kharvas (Marathi) aka Junnu (Telugu). You know, that stuff that intrigued Vee Unkil for a long time.

i made rabri today using sucralose. i added only cardamom using this recipe. it was as good as tiwari's rabri.

What are you cooking / having cooked / eating today? [2 of 2] - Page 10 2013-121

there are 2 styles of making rabri. this is the benares/kolkata style. the other style is: boil boil boil until milk condenses to 1/3rd or less; add nuts, kesar, cardamom etc. and freeze.

Looks delicious. I'm a sucker for any milk-based dessert. If there's nothing, I'll eat a couple of spoons of plain Complan. That said, I ate and drank so much these last three weeks, I'm now off big meals (and desserts) for the next couple of weeks at least.

ha ha! that sounds a lot like my younger. he is fond of sweets and yesterday he consumed a bowl of lactogen as there were no sweets in the kitchen. he relished my rabri today.

I had fried brown rice for the first time, with vegetables - broccoli cabbage and julienned carrots for the first time at a Japanese place in the food court. very average stuff. this followed by coldstone's cheesecake fantasy. then I came home and had white tea with a fruit tart. I love fruit tarts.
