Just finished brunch - French toast (using home-made whole-wheat bread) topped w/ a splash of Grand Marnier + agave nectar, fresh berries, & a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Vandy, while your combo is unusual, your meal looks delicious. Yours sounds yummy too, synonymous. Compliments to all the chefs!

Hats off to you and your Mrs for all your Indian cookery efforts.

Any more experiments with dry mango and sweetmeats?



Today for a change, for lunch we just had a spicy egg, cheese and chilly sandwich in a garlic roll, with chilled buttermilk with lots of curry leaves in it. Fed up of regular daily spicy food and the weather was rather warm.
Thanks for your kind comments snonymous, yes the Mrs has got the
curry making down to a fine art but leaves the sweets to me.

I did make another batch of Spicy dried mango and it turned out pretty good,although I did use semi-ripe mango as i cant get my hands on any Green mango.

I also made some more Almond Burfi which turned out absolutely scrumptious.unfortunately it doesn't last long in my household.

Have not heard of your buttermilk concoction before sounds good.

@Nattu, the biryani had no meat or chicken just plain,still yummy though.Next time I may try a seafood one for something Different.

@ namaste cat, your french toast recipe made me droull no end.

Namaste Cat, your French Toast sounds scrumptuous, as does Vandy's Almond Burfi.

Prawns Biriyani is also yummy. Haven't had any for a long time, should take a walk by the fish market one of these days.

Buttermilk is a pretty standard summer drink out here. Its basically just yoghurt made up with cold water into a drink. Everyone has their own favourite variant. For basics simply add a pinch of salt / black salt and pepper. I prefer it with a lot of curry leaves and finely chopped coriander, mint, dill, a small piece of crushed ginger and / or garlic, and just a hint of green chilly and crushed black pepper. Coconut also goes well in this cooling summer concoction!

Sunday Lunch & Sunday Dinner

For Lunch today I had Biryani which had shredded chicken and Egg
Curry on top,plus Hot Mango Pickle.Accompanied by a Mango Lassi.

And yes, the biryani had peas in it.

For Dinner, it will be Chilli Crab, probably with Wholemeal Chappatis.
I will spoon most of the oil off the top of the Chilli Crabs.
