An entertainment industry student doing my best to save money in hard economic times by making cheap, healthy, delicious food at home.
My favorite things to cook
Bread, soup, pastas, onigiri, curry
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family has two great traditions but I haven't ventured to try them yet; stuffed bell peppers, and tuna pasta casserole.
My cooking triumphs
Soups, breads, chicken curry. I also bake a nice, moist, delicious salmon fillet.
My cooking tragedies
I tried making homemade cheese (paneer) so I could make homemade mattar paneer (curried peas and cheese). The cheese looked and tasted absolutely divine... until I brought it to the pan. I guess I was supposed to deep fry the cheese first because it fell apart into liquid fail. In addition I added too much water to this recipe, so I essentially made cheesy pea soup. Very bad tasting cheesy pea soup. :(
