My beautiful baby!
About this Cook
I am a teacher by profession. I love being with children and animals (though not necessarily in that order!)
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking food that is simple and easy to make. (I simplify recipes to my convinience, if necessary). However, I do not enjoy cooking on an everyday basis - the maid does that. I like to try out new dishes at restaurants, analyse them, and then reproduce them at home.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking cakes and cookies with my daughters.
My cooking triumphs
I'm a perfectionist, so everything should be a 'triumph'.
My cooking tragedies
Was doing an exam and my stiffly beaten egg whites 'ran' because I hadn't added the sugar and had let them stand while I got busy doing something else. Had to start all over again.

Gobi Aloo (Indian Style Cauliflower with Potatoes)
Although I cook with minimal oil, I will have to say that this recipe requires more than 1 Tbsp as there is quite a lot of cauliflower. A couple of suggestions - cut the potatoes smaller than the cauliflower as they take longer to cook. Cover and cook over slow heat. Add cilantro after the vegetables have cooked and allow to heat through. This allows the fresh flavour to remain. Gobi Aloo is meant to be dry - it is not a curry, so pls don't follow other reviews of adding coconut milk.

Panzanella Salad
An excellent salad! Loved the toasted croutons. Couldn't wait for it to stand for 20 min - it was polished off immediately!

Indian Style Basmati Rice
This is a good recipe. However, you can make a few changes to imrove it. If you wish to serve the rice looking white instead of brown, don't allow the onions to colour - cook them till they are just about to turn golden. Also, if you use ghee instead of oil, the aroma will be absolutely heavenly! Add a few bay leaves too. You can turn this into a vegetable pulao by adding diced carrots, beans, peas, cauliflower and potato; and increasing the water content slightly. A great way to make children eat their veggies!
