I'm from India, I love reading, writing, cooking, and art. Ialso like photography and hiking. I hate recipes that say delicious or tasty in the name and actually taste, well, not delicious. I am constantly looking for a good Horchata recipe...sadly, it isn't that successful. My Spanish teacher made horchata and brought it in for the class to try. It was amazing, but his mother-in-law, who's from Mexico, cooked it wthout any recipe.
My favorite things to cook
Madeleines, doughnuts, fish, and anything with alfredo or tuna...or both!
Madeleine recipe below:
Need: 2 eggs, 1/2 tsp. vanilla ext., 1/2 tsp. lemon zest, 1 cup powdered sugar, 3/4 cup flour (all-purp.), 1/4 tsp. baking powd., 1/2 cup melted, cooled butter.
mix flour, vanilla, and eggs in bowl
add butter, and zest
fold in baking powder and sugar
if using nonstick madeleine pan, dont do this:
if not, brush pan with butter
fill molds with mixture
bake ten-twelve minutes, should be golden when ready
makes 24 3in madeleines
sprinkle with pinch of powdered sugar
goes well with drinks
My favorite family cooking traditions
Lots of Indian food, spicy-spicy spiciness...and if its Indian curry or biriyani or something, it has to be perfect...so lots of spice for hours, meaning the whole house smells like Indian food afterwards...it smells good in whiffs, but when you're trying to sleep a week after you cooked Indian food, you don't sleep. You wish you were outside. Maybe not a week...haha.
My cooking triumphs
I made parmesan-covered fish fillets once, and my family loved them. I was so proud...unfortunately, they lasted about half an hour.
I found the recipe somewhere here...maybe I should look for it.
My cooking tragedies
Biggest tragedy: I was eight, but still...my tuna helper (homemade, but following recipe) turned out all thin and goopy, and sweet. I then dumped salt onit, and nearly died (joking) of ODing on salt.
Oops. But I was eight.
