Indian bread: Kulcha

You are probably familiar with Indian Naan bread, well this is similar and worth a try. And if you make extra dough then portion it as it freezes well and comes in very handy when you have the munchies after a night on the town. Use your imagination to make stuffed Kulcha.

230 ml plain white […]

How to make home-made Ghee

Ghee is a class of clarified butter. After making ghee it reduces the saturated fat content marginally but as we know, every little helps.

And the best part about making ghee is the wonderful golden aroma it creates in your kitchen. If I close my eyes I am transported to food heaven where Keith Floyd now lives. […]

India: Goa, going, stay

After three weeks of Indian railway trains I was so pleased to be on our way to Goa albeit via another train, the Mumbai – Margao Express, an eleven hour train journey. By the way never trust the word ‘express’ in India. As usual the carriage was straight out of the 1800s and peering […]

Chat Amongst Yourselves: Chaat (chat) Masala

Chaat (sometimes spelt chat) Masala is a Pakistani and North Indian spice mix which is both sweet and sour in taste. There are, of course, more versions than I can shake a stick at but my version is below.

There are a couple of unusual ingredients, the first being Kala Namak (Indian black salt) and […]

India: The Best Kebab is in Lucknow

For the train spotters: We travelled overnight from Delhi on the mail train to Lucknow. It was a laborious 9.5 hours. We shared a 4 berth compartment with very little privacy. And it was very noisy.

Lucknow is a city of 2.5 million and at times it seems as though the majority of the populous live […]

India: Chandni Chowk Spice Market

Visiting New Delhi is not complete without a trip to the 17th century market. It is one of India’s largest.

Kalu travels 40km (each-way) every day to Delhi by bus just so that he can cycle a rickshaw that he doesn’t even own. It is a very tough life and this day he peddled his […]

India: The Aromas

India smells, sometimes good, sometimes foul but most of the time there’s an underlying aroma that is made up of:

Smog
Tobacco
Cheap soap
Holy cow shit
Spices
Drains
Curry
Smoke
Incense
Inexpensive cologne
Urine

And I defy any woman I know to use the public conveniences.

 

India: Delhi is very loud

Everybody in Delhi drives with their hands on the horn. Honk when somebody is in your way or if you want to overtake or even undertake, it doesn’t seem to matter, the only important thing is that you honk.

I have been to many cities, often noticing ‘the have and the have nots’ but in […]

India: It’s a Ganga!

The start of our trip was an hour or so drive to Cordoba to connect with the high speed AVE train to Madrid which whisked us there in under 2 hours in absolute comfort and even though we did travel by tourist class there was plenty of leg room – please note Virgin Rail […]

Multicultural gathering

Curry. What better way to bring people together.

In rural Spain it is not easy to pop out for what in the UK is the most common takeaway, curry.

So a few days before setting off to India I held a curry night at Casa Adora attracting nationalities from UK, France, Belgium and Spain. Oh and […]
