I am nursing pretty bad hay fever that usually lasts for weeks in my case. If things were not bad enough, at the beginning of week I found out that around 200 odd recipes from my blog have gone missing thanks to the photo hosting site Photo Bucket which no longer provides a free service. Since I don't have the ransom they are demanding, nor have time or energy to search and re-post the missing photos from hundreds of posts, I will be slowly replacing the missing photos with new photos as and when I cook them. It means, it may take couple of years but I hope you will continue to try the recipes despite lack of accompanying photographs.

 

For now, let me share this updated recipe post of Aloo Tikki Chole Chaat, a popular Indian street food of spiced potato patties served with spicy chickpeas curry and assorted sweet date-tamarind chutney and hot mint-coriander chutney and topped with finely chopped onions, tomatoes and sev. Head to the blog, and do give this recipe a try :)

I believe I am quite a romantic person. When I saw apples in our garden yesterday all I wanted was to take a beautiful photo..

 

Suddenly I hear a voice behind me, saying: If you pick those apples, you will get great chutney...

 

Spiced apple chutney:

 

Ingredients

225g/8oz onions, chopped

900g/2lb apples, cored and chopped

110g/4oz sultanas, raisins or chopped dates

15g/½oz ground coriander

15g/½oz paprika

15g/½oz mixed spice

15g/½oz salt

340g/12oz granulated sugar

425ml/¾ pints malt vinegar

 

Method

Put all the ingredients into a preserving pan. Slowly bring to the boil until the sugar has dissolved.

Simmer for 1½-2 hours, stirring from time to time to stop the chutney sticking to the pan.

When it is very thick and you can draw a wooden spoon across the base of the pan so that it leaves a channel behind it that does not immediately fill with liquid, the chutney is ready.

Turn into sterilised jars, seal and cool.

Store in a cool, dark cupboard for two to three months before eating.

I do enjoy it when macro monday themes allow me to stuff my face! In this case crumbly cheddar cheese on poppy seed water biscuits with tangy tomato chutney as a condiment. All washed down with a nice glass of port. A few tomatoes, a bit of fruit and some pickled onions were added to make it a bit less unhealthy. HMM.

Branston Pickle, our house is never empty of it, a great condiment to many a dish, and a principle ingredient of a Ploughman’s Lunch.

Branston Pickle, a jarred pickled chutney containing swede, carrots, onions and cauliflower pickled in a sauce made from vinegar, tomato, apple and spices. It was first made in 1920 and is my favourite condiment, with cheese of course! HMM :-)

7DWF...Free theme

As a side dish to the caramelized turkey cooked in lemon beer from yesterday, I have here a variation on Mango Chutney.

 

This is rather easy and fast (about 1 hour) to make. I see you (in general) use the cup as measure.

- 6 cups of mango cut as you see in the photo (about 5 pieces of mango);

- 1/2 cup of golden raisins;

- 1 cup of sugar (you don't want this too sweet, but you can add a little more if you want);

- 1/2 to 1 cup of white vinegar (depends how sour you want it, I would go with 1 cup);

- 1 minced garlic clove;

- 1 cup chopped onion (1-2 pieces);

- 1/2 teaspoon of Cardamom spice powder, if you have it;

- same with Turmeric;

- 1/4 teaspoon of hot chili, maybe more if you like it to be rather hot and not sour;

- salt.

 

Boil sugar and vinegar in a pot, stirring until sugar dissolves.

You might want to fry the onion and the garlic just to give it a nice color. Not too much.

Add everything else into the pot and let it simmer until you get an almost thick sauce. Stir from time to time.

 

You can store it in jars.

 

Bon Appétit!

"Laal Mirchi" (Red Peppers) on a street cart on the Barwala-Dhandhuka-Ahmedabad road. Despite the title, these peppers aren't that hot. One of my favourite winter food is chutney made out of these red peppers, onions and garlic.

Thanks to ever new [and successful] taste experimentation by my wife

(034/365) A jar of spicy tomato chutney. For Smile on Saturday theme "made by me". I made at least 20 jars of this last Summer when we had a glut of homegrown onions, garlic, tomatoes, chilies & courgettes. The only ingredients not homegrown were the sultanas & spices. Perfect on a cheese sandwich or to accompany cold meats HSoS!

This morning wife served Besan ki roti , that had coriander, ajwain, onion , red chillies stuffed in it, the chutney was made out of lasson , garlic , green chilly..

 

Some of the dishes wife makes have been enjoyed by the furious physician Dr Glenn Losack MD when he visited my house..

 

Valdimir Mouveau my French friend and Marc de Clercq my Belgian friend ,too have liked my wife's dishes.

 

The other dishes wife makes our Lucknowi Dum Biryani, Thehri,Khichdi, Khichda, gilawat ke kebab , and various types of dals and jeera rice too.

Baigan ka bharta is a speciality too..

 

Chicken is a daily feature , sometimes meat , but we dont eat beef at all.

  

Keema or mince is somtimes a farefor breakfast , sometimes she makes Idli sambar too..much better than what is served at an Udipi Restaurant..

 

We dont eat bread , rice and chapatis are the staple diet.

 

Wife also makes fish- Rawas , Promfret , Surmai Bombay ducks.. she does not like Bangda, prawns too she makes with spinach.

 

She was taught all this by my late mother Shamim Shakir.

 

Now my wife enjoys the food made by both my daughter in laws one from Lucknow the other from Mumbai.

 

I learnt cooking when I worked in Muscat in the early 80s , but it was more Malyali style as I worked with people from Kerala at a place called Tecodev owned by Dr Hamed Al Riyami..at Muttrah.

  

Our vegetable garden is doing really well this summer, and as we now have a lot of beetroot and onions I decided to follow a 'domestic goddess' recipe (aka Nigella Lawson). I've made beetroot and ginger chutney for the first time and I'm delighted with the flavour - it also has apples, root ginger, crystallised ginger and red wine vinegar in there.

 

Today we've eaten it with grilled goat's cheese on some toasted granary bread. The lettuce is from our garden too.

 

On Explore August 9th highest position #9, thank you so much for looking.

  

I'm still coming to grips with my Nikon D60. I tend to click with both my cameras, my compact Canon PS A710 and the Nikon DSLR and in this case preferred the results from my compact. I guess I'm just so used to it now that I know how to get the best results with it. I do very little post processing (only use picasa) but shoot in vibrant colors mode.

Papadum, also known as papad in India poppadom in the UK, is a thin, crisp Indian preparation sometimes described as a cracker. It is typically served as an accompaniment to a meal in India. It is also eaten as an appetizer or a snack and can be eaten with various toppings such as chopped onions, chutney or other dips and condiments. In some parts of India, it is served as the final item in a meal.

رمضان مبارک

Today is 27th Ramadhan, the most likely date for Lailat-ul Qadr, 'The Night of Power, of Destiny', when fate is laid down for the next twelve months, with the Hazrat Jibril Amin ~Archangel Gabriel descending to the earth to take stock of the world; actually, it falls at the end of Isha namaaz (night prayer) on the night of 26th (last night), up to Fajar namaaz (the pre-dawn prayer) of the 27th, ie. this morning.

 

[There is one more odd-numbered night left in Ramadhan, the 28th-29th, which may also be considered as Lailat-ul-Qadr, although any one of the five odd numbered nights in the last ten days of Ramadhan might be considered to be this powerful night, but only Rab-ul-Aalameen will know which night that would be.] Ramadhan passes too quickly!

 

The classic Iftari treats served in every Pakistani home - pakoras with a spicy fruit chaat served with sweet tamarind chutney, mmm... Accompanied by mango milkshake!

 

I cooked quite alot of food as my sisters and nieces finally came over for a girlie Iftari. Of course, we all over-ate, but I still insisted that they had dinner before they left!

 

Chaat~Fruit Salad - chick peas, potatoes, onions, green chilli, dhaniya~coriander~cilantro, peaches, apples, pomegranate, pears, grapes (any kind of fruit in fact, though I didn't add the ubiquitous bananas), served with plain yoghurt and sweet tamarind chutney.

 

>Pakoras - gram flour, salt, red chilli powder, coriander and zeera powder,

spinach, potatoes, onions, tomatoes, green chillies, dhaniya~coriander~cilantro.

 

India, Food, Tandoor, Raan, Crown of Rack of Lamb, baked over red-hot glowing charcoal on a skewer in a tandoor, a heated clay-based oven. The pieces are brushed with ghee, a clarified butter at intervals, which gives it taste. It is typically eaten with a green coriander & tamarind chutney, served with onion rings & lemon.

Finally the tomatoes started ripening, then came flooding rains, undermining the local bridge, cutting the highway, causing the tomatoes to split and drop off the vines. Here is my first and probably last batch of yummy tomato chutney!

Periyakka (actual meaning in tamil is elder sister) is a street vendor who makes awesome masala vadai, banana bajji as well as onion bajji. Its realy hard to find periyakka in the streets of that tribal village. She is the master chef for all the function's that takes place in and around the village. She make's right from mithai's. namkeen's, biriyani's as well as nice bhang (hic..Hic..). so during a hectic walk right from the base village camp to this tribal village. I reached to the market place, was feeling big time hungry & i was searching for some nice place to eat, (generally you wont find hotels, mess or any eat out joints in the tribal village except some tea shops & small time petty grocery stores). i came to know about periyakka & went to her hut and asked for food around 9 in the morning. So she invited me into her hut. she made me some nice ragi dosa's with red chilli fruit chutney(slurp), which i belted royally. After that the best part i asked for something hot to drink. She gave me a local version of karupatti coffee...

 

Later her neighbor to me that the food i ate was made for her. I felt really bad, went to her apologized gave some money, she refused to accept it. i asked if i can buy her something, i was shattered on her reply she said " you must have come from a far off distance, i don't want you to starve in our land, so i gave u what i had, so i don't need your money"

 

I was speechless on her noble act, hats off to her.

Psst: ( but i gave her the money, and i also help her cleaning some utensils & few house chores). And well i got her portrait.

Papadam, (Hindi: पापड़म; also known as Papad in Northern India or Appadam in Telugu, Appalam in Tamil and Pappadum in the rest of South India; spellings vary) is a thin, crisp disc-shaped Indian food typically based on a seasoned dough made from black gram (urad flour), fried or cooked with dry heat. Flours made from other sources such as lentils, chickpeas, rice, or potato, can be used. Papadams are typically served as an accompaniment to a meal in India, or as an appetizer or snack, sometimes with toppings such as chopped onions, chopped carrots, chutneys or other dips and condiments. In certain parts of India, papadums which have been dried but not precooked are used in curries and vegetable dishes.-- Wikipedia

It is prized there for its long shelf life and high nutritional content, as well as the minimal quantity of water required for its preparation. It is always eaten with dal.

I thought leaving home for an overnight stay at my brother's meant I wouldn't be cooking.

'Look I've peeled 2 extra onions if you want to make some pakoras', he said- a hint I couldn't ignore.

Please ignore the china, (it's not mine) if you can.

Best shared pakoras, best with a mint chutney but second best you can't beat ketchup. Do enjoy!
