  1. Lunch! What'd ya have? (2017)

    My plan was to use up leftover rice by making rice balls with a cube of mozzarella in the middle. It soon became abundantly clear that they weren't going to stick together very well. Plan B was a rice slice - canned tuna, grated zucchini, mozzarella, grated parmesan, beaten egg, chopped sage all mixed well and pressed into a sprayed dish. Topped with panko for crunch, and extra cheese for indulgence.
  2. Carrot Cake - Bake-off XIX

    Can I post yesterday's effort ? I'll take that as a yes. The recipe is here i used coconut oil instead of canola, and skimped on the icing sugar in the cream cheese frosting, so it's a bit runny. For a non baker (perhaps my third cake ever) I was pretty pleased with the result.

    Vegetable saagu, stir fried zucchini, steamed rice, flaky roti bread, tomato chutney, green mango pickle.
  4. ISO Carrot Cake recipe

    I made this carrot cake using coconut oil instead of canola. The cream cheese frosting is a bit runny (lack of enough icing sugar) otherwise it's yummy. Question please, I used 000 flour because that's what I had. If I used plain flour (AP) as directed might it have been a bit taller ?

    Chilli beef, cheesy corn chips, guacamole and stuffed jalapeños from the garden with sour cream.
  6. Yep, it's old too, published 1991. I continue to look for her complete Asian and complete vegetarian, they will appear !

    I went to all the trouble of making Thai green curry paste following a BBC good food recipe by John Torode. Made a curry with chicken thighs and sugar snap peas. It needed something, like an extra dollop of Mae Ploy brand paste, and it probably wouldn't have hurt to add extra coconut milk. Oh well....
  8. Japan feasting, December 2015

    Well, I'm on board. Thanks for sharing these beautiful photos and amazing meals.
  9. I like that term @Porthos, another hardcore thrift store shopper here, although we call 'em op shops (short for opportunity shop). Todays haul, digital scales still in the box $6, Hot & Spicy by Charmaine Solomon $1, and two Lonely Planets $2 each.

    I've read the whole thread, along with most of the Indian cooking section. Such great info on eGullet ! i haven't tried that particular chutney YET ! It's on the list though....

    Thank you @FauxPas, the best thing is my husband is raving about vegetarian food and losing weight. Regards the recipe, I have so many indian food sites and books that I couldn't be sure of the exact recipe. This one had tomatoes and onion ground together in my mixie, there were mustard seeds and curry leaves spluttered in sesame oil, then the raw tomato onion mixture added and simmered a bit. There were probably other spices, I do recall tamarind was in there somewhere. The aim is to get confident enough to just make it off the cuff. I'm getting there !

    Masala dosa, cauliflower kurma, rice, sambar and assorted fresh chutneys. This dosa (my third attempt at cooking them, it gets easier with practice) is stuffed with a spicy potato mix. The chutneys are tomato, coconut and green (coriander & mint).
  13. eG Cook-Off 75: Meatballs

    This thread got me craving meatballs. Here's my Moroccan style ones in a spicy sauce with chickpeas. I loosely followed the recipe below, using fresh tomatoes instead of canned, and adding homemade harissa to the sauce. The texture of the meatballs was smooth, the flavours delicious !

    A char siu pork and veggie rice bowl. I marinated pork belly rashers and baked them in the oven, they were cut into bite size bits and joined stirfried broccolini, shiitake mushrooms and spring onions on top of cooked rice. Followed by fresh fig clafoutis.
