more cooking- momos & ginger ale

May 14, 2010 § Leave a comment

I made momos and ginger ale. No photos of the ginger ale yet but the fabulous superduper yummy easy recipe is here.I couldn’t make the strawberry thinger because strawberry season is over and all you get in the market is expensive fungified mush.

I can’t say the same for the momos though, they were a painstakingly long process, but my dad said that’s because I made too many. I don’t think so. Three of us inhaled like 40 of them. Yes, they are worth it at the end of the day. But I’d recommend delegating work around if you want to make them quickly. I haven’t figured out the shape they make them at restaurants yet but this didn’t seem too shabby.

Bread!

It’s been a while since I posted, I know. I didn’t realise how busy I would be with the freelancing. It’s going good, and thanks for all the kind encouraging words.

The good thing about hanging out at home so much is the cooking. I have been experimenting and wha’djya know? I can cook edible food! I made my first successful batch of bread. I had trouble getting used to adapting the recipes to my oven and how much faster the dough rises over here. Here’s the recipe used for the bread in the photo. I love this blog. she makes everything look so easy. And it kinda is too..when you have the time. My oven is tres tiny and only goes upto 350 degrees thats why I smash em up in small tins and leave then on for longer than the recipe calls for (25 mins bottom heat, 10 mins top heat to brown the bread). They taste exactly like the paunv I used to eat when we were kids in Goa. If anyone’s bought bread at 8 o’clock from xanti bakery on colva rd(next to menino jesus) you know what I’m talking about.

Please try making this bread it’s dead simple and so so good.
