@ NB - have you stopped cooking? No updates on your food thread for ages!

sperehealfe makes these for us at home in Vermont.

Bonito flakes, hot red pepper and a sauce flavoured with tamarind are served along with the okonomiyaki, which is sometimes called a Japanese pizza which it is not. There are regional varieties - with ingredients layered or all mixed up - and ingredients vary widely.

To show you the actual size (though of course this too varies according to the place and the chef) here is a shot taken on Miyajima at our favourite okonomiyaki place. We've been here several times and returned again after a 6 year hiatus.

Okonomiyaki can be translated as "Cooked as-you-like-it". Cooking method shown here: Japan guide - okonomiyaki The secret ingredient is yamaimo powder.

My lunch today was raspberries, wild strawberries and black and red currant, plucked in our garden and then immediately in my mouth

No pictures, had to eat faster than the birds....

Same good but remembered to photograph it today. This stuff is addictive.

Melon with ginger;
and
Tomato salad
and
Water (lots of it)



Heatwave here is unbearable. 41 degrees C yesterday (in the sun ) and similar today. That means 36 degrees C in the shade in the afternoon and 29 degrees C at night.


P.S. What's for dinner though .? Home-made moussaka with a raita on the side.

Dinner actually.

With all the discussion about yakatori, I figured I should show our dinner from a few nights back.
Yakatori (chicken skewers) and dipping sauce, daikon namasu (daikon & carrot salad), soba and dipping sauce, edamame, uma no mame (horse beans), beni-shoga (pink pickled ginger).

The extreme heat this year in Kharagpur does not give me any appetite. Lots of liquids, fruits and some food. Horrible. Time to go back to Canada.

Cheers

Considered a move to IIT B? Granted Mumbai is not exactly Canada in terms of weather, but the temperatures inside the campus can be around 5 degrees cooler than outside, which aren't too drastic to begin with.

Food is not bad either.

A simple two-egg omelette before going out to a concert, and cheese on toast after getting home again.

(I don't know if it qualifies as rarebit: grated cheese, chopped onion, chopped tomatto, mixed and bound together with yoghurt)

Served with a sprinkling of Worcestershire sauce --- because I forgot to put the yellow mustard seeds, which I had smashed ready, in the mixie.

You can add egg for a 'buck rabbit'.

Or blend with tomato soup for a 'blushing bunny'.

The first time I tried the yoghurt trick I hopelessly overestimated and ended up with cheese lassi!
