  1. This was "afternoon tea with Wedgewood" at the Langham in Melbourne. I would have preferred more savouries and less sweet, nevertheless I managed to finish my share !
  2. One of the better meals I had while in Victoria - lunch with my sister at the Black Hill Pub in Ballarat. Angel hair pasta with scallops, calamari, whiting and lemon.
  3. Dinner 2017 (Part 6)

    After a week away, it's wonderful to be back in my own kitchen cooking a simple Indian meal. Spicy potatoes, mixed dal, turmeric rice and paratha, served with a cucumber raita, fresh coriander chutney and mango chutney.
  4. A little taste of Kerala

    @Kerala, is the wedding ceremony similar to a Hindu one that goes for three days or so ? I'd be interested to hear about any similarities (or differences), or see any photos. Thanks for taking the time to share your experience

    Prawn and mushroom fry, dal, potatoes with spinach, lemon rice and paratha. On the side - chilli coriander chutney and lime pickle.

    In a departure from normal programming, I roasted chicken marylands with potatoes, pumpkin and Brussels sprouts. Served with broccoli cheese and grainy mustard gravy.

    Gee thanks @Kerala, wish I was there ! Your food looks great, and it's lovely to share your childhood memories. More please.....
  8. As if I didn't have enough destinations on my "list", I now need to add another. Thanks for an enticing taste of Hong Kong !
  9. Dinner 2017 (Part 6)

    Thali number 83 (no, I haven't been counting, it's a guess). Chickpea and cauliflower curry, smashed potatoes, snake beans with tomato gravy, tadka dal, rice and paratha. Served with dill raita, mango chutney and lime pickle. The potatoes were a winner and so easy. I par boil, cool and press between palms, heat ghee in a pan, add kalonji seeds, grated ginger and minced green chilli, fry the potatoes, add salt, then garnish with chopped coriander.
  10. Dinner 2017 (Part 6)

    Goat curry from the Punjab, desert style dal from Rajasthan, eggplants in tomato gravy, spicy Chettinad spinach, aged basmati and paratha. Served with dill raita, tamarind chutney and mango pickle. Goat is good.

    Punjabi chickpeas, baked cheesy paneer, spicy potatoes with okra, ghee rice and paratha. Served with a small salad and tomato chutney.
  12. Lunch! What'd ya have? (2017)

    Me too. This was lunch today, "what's left in the veggie draw" sambar, with a dollop of cucumber dill raita and a vada (fried lentil donut) or two.
  13. Dinner 2017 (Part 6)

    A feast from the north. Punjabi goat curry, Kashmiri mushrooms with spinach, white desert dal from Rajasthan, oven fried okra, naan bread, turmeric rice, cucumber raita, fresh garlic chutney, gunpowder chutney and lime pickle. Rubbish photo. Bring on the warmer (and lighter) nights.

    Have you tried Australia Fair Metro market ? It's in the old part of AF, near the China town precinct and has banks of freezers with all sorts of stuff, fresh produce and dried goods galore.
