The soup that nobody liked. I spent Saturday making a tamarind rasam soup it's a southern Indian thin soup with dal. Last week in Chinatown I came across maegosa flowers. As an ingredients experimentalist I purchased it and googled it once home. Maegosa or magosa flowers are neem which is often made into oil.

Peanut and aubergine curry. I've been using ground nuts in stews for the last couple of years. If you put them in at the end they retain some crunch if you cook them a while they turn into beans for they are legumes.   #recipes #homemade #food #vegan #curry #nuts #cooking #vegetarian

Indian spiced shortbread baked by @andresimonawards shortlistee @meerasodha who I went to interview yesterday about her latest book Fresh India. She has a sparkling approach to Indian food; this book is vegetarian seasonal illuminating gujurati home-cooked fare. It is a million miles away from heavy creamy rich curry house food. (But I also love that and am looking forward to @thecurryguy's curry house recipe book out in May.) It was a lovely afternoon drinking tea in the soft dim light of…

Habanero chillies on a bright oilcloth. These really aren't too hot although I met a German woman who was practically having a heart attack while eating them. I did t think my heat tolerance was that high but generally the British love spicy food and Europeans don't. We have our colonial past to thank for that no doubt! I'm now staying @lasnubesholbox hotel which is basically paradise on earth. don't hate me but I don't blame you if you do! @descubremexico #travel #holbox #mexico #yucatan…
