Aloo Gobi - Indian Potato and Cauliflower Curry a Guest Post for Rasa Malaysia

So excited to share with you my Aloo Gobi recipe on Rasa Malaysia's site.I would like to take this opportunity to thank Bee for having me in her fabulous Rasa Malaysia space. I have been following Rasa Malaysia ever since I launched my site a couple years ago this winter. If it weren’t for Bee I would not have been introduced to Malaysian and other unfamiliar to my palate South Asian cuisines. I love the fact that she is a new mom to a baby boy as I sent mine off to college. These moments with your baby are so precious Bee! Enjoy!

Indian Shakshuka - Poached Eggs in a Curry Sauce

In this piece I feel I morphed as a writer. I also hold it special as it is the first time I speak of my father, who passed away five years ago this coming January, 2012.

This is the second writing I've done for The Jew and the Carrot. The first you might recall was Ancient Rice Offering Is the Heart of India's Jewish Community with a sweetened flattened rice (poha) recipe. I also had a little surprise mention in the Q and A: Mollie Katzen, Godmother of Vegetarian Cuisine written by Gianna Palmer and published this past week at The Jew and the Carrot. Thank you Mollie Katzen ( twitter: @MollieKatzen).

Please head over and let me know your thoughts about the story and the recipe included here.

Pears II

My love affair with pears continues this year. You might remember my pears photos post from August 25, 2010. My intentions are to incorporate them into a recipe but I end up just snacking on them. Let me know in the comment section your favorite pear recipes and leave a link if you got one. Also, do you know the names of either or both varieties photographed in both of my pear posts?

In the Wikipedia link I was mostly looking for nutritional value but was surprised to see the list of countries topping the pear production chart, with the US being at the number 3 slot.

Green Split Pea Soup, Shifting Diets, Cravings and an Open Discussion on Allergies

When I posted New Year's Eve Table, Yellow Split Peas Soup with Pepitas back in January, 2010, I wanted to give a twist to the staple green split pea you will find in our home and use yellow split peas instead and dress them up with some crunchy pepitas. Although this is an identical recipe, I wanted to include in this post some information on split peas, how we are shifting our diet slightly, on cravings, and an open discussion on allergies. Along the way I am including some photos from my new camera.
