I ate a bowlful of macaroni in the pack on the left, prepared myself. A great feat of cooking considering Marbles is a total flop in the kitchen.

 

A fusion marriage of desi tastes with Italian stuff.

 

 

 

Lol, did a locum write that or did you just refer to yourself in the 3rd person? post-73242-0-32937800-1346511065.png

 

 

Made this yesterday. First time making Persian food and it turned out pretty alright!

 

 

 

 

MmmMM! I love fruit in rice.

 

 

It's awesome, but some people who don't enjoy achari pickle taste don't like this, like my hamsheera.

 

Also easy to make. The recipe is on the back. Add chicken stripes and water and it won't take long.

 

What is Marbles favourite pickle?

ummm let me think. I'll have to check!

Well spiced mango pickle by far is the best. And lemon pickle is also good. Mixed vegetable pickle with carrots, cabbage and green chillies, I like that too.

 

These are all made in oil. But I also like Iranian style khayyar pickle (cucumbers in vinegar)

^ mMM!! they look DELISH.

 

I am planning to make my brother a spicy mango chutney; something quite spicy but not overly sweet. A recipe im looking at calls for jaggery, which ive never used before. Do you reckon i could use brown sugar and get the same effect, or does jaggery have a distinct taste that it would be a shame to bypass?


Ate: Quorn southern fried chicken bites + guacamole

Unless the one savouring that mango chutney happens to be a refined gourmet with remarkably advanced taste buds, I think brown sugar can pretty much stand substitute for jaggery. However, jaggery provides a distinct nuance to the taste missing in alternative ingredients and for optimal results one should use it but I should think it's not sine qua non.

That looks so delicious, Marbles. :D

 

Oh it was.

 

And for the last three days I have been eating niaz daal and roti from the 10th of Muharram. I think I will eat something different tonight.

Ate: An unladylike amount of cherry, chocolate mousse d16c4689.gif

Nain!

 

The more chocolate you consume the more it is ladylike.

 

I shudder to think what would become of cocoa business if women did not help :P

For breakfast, oatmeal with applesauce.  For lunch, either leftover leftover casserole or leftover lentils and rice.  For supper I'm planning oven "fried" chicken, (American) biscuits with gravy, and a salad.  

 

I'm also working on some mustard greens chips in my food dehydrator because I bought a giant bunch of them and there's no way we'll be able to finish them before they wilt.  It's about 8 lbs of spicy fresh local greens!  

 

 

Notice the dehydrator is completely full, and I still have a green mountain!  (And please pardon the appearance of my very ancient toaster oven hiding behind.)

^ What is a food dehydrator? What does it do?

 

It cooks very, very slowly over low heat.  As the name indicates, it dehydrates food.  You can turn fruits and vegetables into crispy chips or a dry form for storage, make fruit leather (like the commercially available "Fruit Rollups"),  and you can make meats into jerky.  After loading the foods onto the trays, it requires minimal attention, just rotate the trays every few hours, depending on the sensitivity of the foods being prepared.

*sigh* i'd love a dehydrator. I have tried using the oven on its lowest setting and had reasonable success drying apple and blueberries. I want to make fruit leather! this raw food site makes a lot of use of dehydrators: http://nouveauraw.com/

They aren't very expensive, but they do require some space to store.  I wanted one for many years before I finally got a basic one for about $40.  I don't use it frequently, but when I use it, everyone in my family enjoys the results.  If I gardened I'd probably use it a lot more, but I've never been very good at keeping plants alive and healthy.

 

Our mustard greens chips are nearly gone already.  It's time to cook up the rest of the green mountain.

^ I'd like an Excalibur one, although space is an issue atm. Do you make other kinds of vegetable chips? i like the beetroot ones you get in the Tyrells packets.

I've made mostly greens chips of various types because they are so easy and just about can't fail and we all like them.  I've also dried fruits and berries of various types which we just snack on as-is, and some pumpkin cubes, celery, bell peppers, habaneros, and onions, which I bagged up for cooking stews and soups.  I vaguely remember drying some sliced potatoes, but I can't remember the results.  I think we ate them as snacks, though I actually had intended to store them for cooking.

 

I'd like to try drying some tomatoes, but we always eat them all up fresh, so it almost seems a waste to dehydrate them.  Maybe if I see them on sale for an outstanding price I'll buy up a bushel and then we'll have dried tomatoes any time we want them.  What I thought was going to be a farmer's market was actually an artisan's market, so I'm still trying to locate my nearest good farmer's market, though I do know now where I need to go to buy specialty soaps, baked goods, sauces, and art items. 

 

Today Ate/Eating/Will Eat:

Ate Breakfast:  Coffee w/milk, (American) biscuit with gravy.  (Photo shows sausage gravy.  My gravy is vegetarian but looks similar.)

Eating Lunch (actually  just finished):  leftover lentils and rice and some tasty crispy mustard greens chips.

Will Eat:  Probably tonight is a good night for a leftovers buffet.  The fridge is getting full and my order of halal meat should arrive today and need freezer space.  We've got leftover leftovers casserole, lentils and rice, just a little bit of plain rice, bean enchiladas, a bagged salad, a cucumber, a tomato, gravy (no more biscuits though), and a few bites of chicken.  In the freezer we have two jars of cooked beans and a container of hummus.

Yes, I have eaten it a couple or so times, but I had no idea how it's made and what on earth a food dehydrater is.
