Curry Mela- 22nd Week

Here we are, back with the 22nd curry mela. As usual, I am here, writing from a cyber cafe. I am out of town, and no wifi. So I am writing from a cyber cafe, on a P-III computer. And the system is awfully slow. Was it this slow 3 years back too, or is it relative lol.
I didn't carry my laptop either, as I wanted to be away from work for the weekend. Then I remmebered the Curry Mela ( lol, as if I would have forgotten).

**********************************************
Excuse me! All my visitors who view via Firefox, I know many of you hate MSFT and despise IE, but somehow my current template fails to show properly on firefox, for reasons unknown. I will try ot fix it very soon. In the meanwhile please bear with me and see if you can bear IE as well, since it show on IE just fine. I am trying to figure out the problem.. Perhaps some of the javascripts? because when I save the template on a notepad as htm file and open with firefox it works just fine. Any suggestions are welcome.

***********************************************
I do hope you will enjoy as usual. Keep the faith...









Isn't this is an awesome GrilledPork? Prok makes the best barbeque I tell you , only the dripping fat will hit the coal and there will be lots of flames and might make the outer layer black. Remove the meat to the side it the fire gets too much. No such problems if you are grilling it in an oven.

--------------------------------------------------------------------






Makai ki roti, sarsong ka saag ,any Punjabee readers here? Punjabee or not, this is the best non-non-vegetarian dish to have come out of Asia. I also tried my hand at preparing sarsong ka saag, my way of course, and it was also awesome...
But this one beats me hands down.
--------------------------------------------------------------------






Paneer Butter Masala , an all time favorite for all Desis. Rich and delicious, a dish you can cook for any kind of guest, a food you can order without asking your partner.

--------------------------------------------------------------------







Egg Paniyaram Just the right recipe for my next eggy treat. Sounds very intersting too. As the cook says, "Paniyarams are a tasty treat. It is somewhere between idli and dosa - soft on the inside and crispy on the outside."

--------------------------------------------------------------------







Vella Appam, I just love this appam made from Bananas and Jaggery. Comfort food from down south.

--------------------------------------------------------------------







Lovely Spread for High Tea, Cherry Tartlets , if pictures could speak.

--------------------------------------------------------------------







Barbecued Chicken Michigan Style, amazing stuff. With my love for barbeques, I can't help drooling over it. Also there sis a surprise waiting over at this blog. Rush and check out.

--------------------------------------------------------------------







Grilled Toasted Potato Sandwich, this is one sandwich I love. I don't like cold sandwiches and prefer them grilled.... Potatoes make good sandwich fillings, BTW. Lurrvely

--------------------------------------------------------------------







Mango Pickle ( Karmbi Nonche) , an Authentic Konkani Pickle right from the cook's mother's recipe book. lol.

--------------------------------------------------------------------








Simple Cabbage Bhaji, an easy dish for bachelors. I have another entry below...

--------------------------------------------------------------------








A mouth Watering spread of Vangi Baath, Cocumber Butter Milk, Mushroom Bhaji and Raita. Need I say more?? :-)

--------------------------------------------------------------------








More Rasam, a Curd based Rasam, mmmm, would be nice with hot rice.

--------------------------------------------------------------------








Pineapple Pulisseri (Pineapple in Sour curd)
. The picure looks awesome, andit must taste great as well. Oh! When we are touching the topic of Pineapples, let me tell you that the pineapple we get back home in manipour is nothing the ones I have tasted elsewhere. Yellowish and so so juicy, the juices slides down the finger, and so sweet. It would even make a good business sense to can it and export it. It would be such a rage, but then it is very business-unfriendly environment out there, and the delight of Manipuri Pineapples will remain hidden from all my friends, at least for sometime. I remember when, on a way back from a picnic, we had come back by a hilly road, and there was this pineapple plantation on the hill slopes. We stole some, and had it. It was awesome. And yes, we also have a similar looking Delicacy, but Idon't exactly remember. Will ask mom and post about it soon.
--------------------------------------------------------------------








This, here, is Amrutham food of the gods.

--------------------------------------------------------------------








Batter Fried Chicken or Chicken Pakoda, Belive me I was just thinking of preparing this dish
--------------------------------------------------------------------







Chicken Curry with Almonds, I never thought of cooking almonds with Chicken, but I can already imagine how it will come out...

--------------------------------------------------------------------




Patta Gobi or Bund Gobi Bhaja A Maharashtrian Staple
. Oh Yes! I can vouch for it. At least a couple of of the dhabas on our lunch table at the office will contain cabbage bhaja. :-)
--------------------------------------------------------------------

Hope you enjoyed this curry mela. Do drop a comment if you do! I have been a little busy of late, if you think my blog was neglected recently.

Announcement for the Cook-a-doodle-do comming soon.
Till then enjoy...

You have been really wonderful in linking us up with so many brilliant blogs...Thanx yaar for including mine...I know you are perhaps running short of time...I have tagged you to a Meme:Ten things that you miss of your Mom's cooking. Hope you would be able to squeeze in time and participate in the Meme and pass it on to new players...(I have been finding it a bit difficult to post any comment on your blog...Probably the same prob exists for my blog too..u r right free blogs are becoming too costly!)
