    Dinner 2019

    Dinner last night was drumstick vegetable and potato curry. I’ve never cooked these before, actually never seen them for sale here. These guys were 65 cm (29”) long. They are supposed to be very beneficial to health...but even after a long cook, they are fibrous and stringy. The best way to eat them was like an artichoke leaf, dragged through the teeth, then discard skin. The flavour is great though and they made the potatoes into champions. The start. The finish The plate, with rice, kali dal and kachumber. Not sure they’ll become a regular feature, but I don’t regret this attempt.

    A lemon chicken tray bake with potatoes, red onions, garlic and peas, plus pan scraping sauce with white wine and a little reduced stock.

    Dinner last night featured kali dal, named after my favourite Indian goddess, Kali, the mother and destroyer. Also mushrooms with spinach curry, ghee rice and cucumber raita.

    Gee, can’t you guys buy chilli tuna ? It’s regular tuna, canned with a chilli which flavours the oil and the tuna. I nearly always buy the chilli tuna. My favourite brand is Serena, but all brands have a chilli option

    Dinner 2019

    Dinner last night was going to be a mixed salad with grilled haloumi, then a large storm rolled in mid afternoon and the temperature dropped by many degrees. So, plan B was enacted. Boiled casierici pasta mixed with a cheese sauce, chopped beer butter mushrooms and a can of chilli tuna. More cheese on top, (vintage cheddar and parmesan), then baked in the oven. Served with a small salad.

    Reverting to form...spiced veggie patties with tomato chutney, okra, dal with spinach, rice and paratha. On the meatloaf discussion...I used to make one with hard boiled eggs lined up in the middle. Each slice of meatloaf comes with a slice of egg !

    Dinner 2019

    The star of this show was the mushrooms in beer butter....I bought vegetarian sausages, err that was a mistake. Served with mozzarella mash, fresh tomato sauce, a smear of hot English mustard and a salad of baby leaves.

    Speedy recovery to Moe, will miss your fabulous food @Ann_T. Happy travels @Dejah, I hope you get to Georgetown and Ipoh in Malaysia, don’t miss the chicken rice. Dinner last night was falafel pockets with hummus and tabouli.

    Last night was linguine with vongole, mushrooms and garlic, plus a salad.
  10. Our avocados have a bit of growing to do. There will be plenty though, this is a small section of the tree. I’m really looking forward to the ideas this cook off will provide. Love the baked arancini @blue_dolphin, toasting the crumbs is brilliant. I used to think bacon and avocado was a heavenly match, nowadays I go avocado and chicken sandwiches with mayo on soft white bread. Or this, at a cafe in Kyogle, smashed avocado, feta cheese and herbs with toasted bread.

    We bought a property in the country. It’s a multiple occupancy or community. Each second Friday of the month we have a gathering of the community where everyone brings food to share. I’ve written about it in the off topic forum....”Going off grid/escape to the country “.

    Sure. Sauté finely chopped red onions, add chopped mushrooms and sweat until all water evaporates, set aside to cool. Mix with beaten egg, chopped parsley, quick cook oats and flour. Season well. Roll into balls and refrigerate until firm. Pan fry, then plop into your favourite tomato based sauce.

    I made these mushroom “meat”balls to take to the monthly Friday feast. They were shroomy good. Served with toasted olive sourdough for juice mopping.
  14. Did you know that in Sri Lanka avocados are called butter fruit and found in all kinds of desserts ?

    Dinner 2019

    You know how an old cookbook automatically opens to a certain page, right ? This is from that page, succulent chicken breasts with a burnt butter, lemon, wine reduction. Served with mash potatoes and garlic green beans. I was in two minds whether to post this in the freezer challenge thread. The chicken had been in there since September 2016, was still surprisingly good. The last piece of meat has left the building.

    Masala omelette which didn’t quite make the fold in half. Stuffed with red onion, spinach, coriander, mushrooms and cheddar, served with fresh tomato chutney. Easy, tasty, satisfying.
  18. Thanks for this challenge. I have a huge tree that’s full of baby avocados. No idea when they’ll ripen, but I’m hoping for a glut. Smashed avocado (basically avo on toast) is blamed for the inability of millennials to get into the housing market here. Love the idea of cubes in dal.

    Lemon rice with mushroom and spinach curry, dal and eggplant bharta.

    Dinner 2019

    A couple nights ago I made these Indian veggie fritters, so easy and tasty. Here they are plated with eggplant bharta, green chutney and yoghurt rice. Last night was a Thai green curry with chicken, zucchini and peas. Looks boring, wasn’t.

    Dinner 2019

    I made an old favourite dal parippu (arguably Sri Lankan or South Indian, they both claim it), seen here with scrambled paneer, a hybrid raita/green chutney, rice and paratha. Followed this up with our first ever home grown pineapple. Several months ago planted the top of a store bought one, a bit of water and voila. This was the best pineapple I’ve had in years, so sweet and juicy.

    Nah, left it out, but I chucked in a couple of Indian bay leaves (don’t tell the purists).

    I made some curried lentil pies for a friend, and two extra for us. Seen here with Kylie Kwongs green salad of iceberg, spinach and mint, plus homemade kimchi and a little fresh tomato chutney.
