I mean, thanks, but I think you misread natraj's post :) He suggested I make stroganoff. Which I should. Maybe this weekend.

I absolutely did not read the post he was referring to before posting, yeah.

But that noodle soup with all the cilantro. That was amazing.

Third attempt at high altitude baked beans: overnight soak in salted water, 45 minute simmer in plain water before adding flavors. Cooked in 2 hours this time. A bit too salty.

Braised lamb shanks in the instant pot and made an onion panade from a recipe in this weeks Sunday NYTimes magazine. Imagine French onion soup, with way more bread and cheese and not so much broth. Very rich, very tasty. I think it will come out to go with tonight’s steaks.

Having dinner with friends, one of whom can't eat gluten. So I made a carrot soup with Moroccan spices, tahini, and crisp chickpeas, a mushroom and spinach quiche with an almond flour crust, and an almond-lemon cake with some sour cream.

For the past few nights I've been trying to get my rice to develop a crust when cooking it, like tah-dig in Persian cuisine, by pouring olive oil in after the rice is cooked and fluffy and letting it cook for a while longer (though the process is more complicated if you really want to do it right). Tonight, I succeeded, and I see why it's considered the best part of the rice traditionally.

I cooked the rice with chickpeas and about two teaspoons of a fenugreek spice mix (both leaves and seeds, as well as garlic powder and some crushed red pepper seeds), a couple dried limes, and a couple bay and kaffir lime leaves.

My rice cooker literally just turned off. Butter + Chicken Broth always results in a crust for me.

I tried cooking romanesco cauliflower for the first time. It’s a beautiful vegetable, bright chartruese with a fractal pattern to the florets. It tastes like a very mild broccoli, not much of cauliflower at all. I was more impressed with its looks.

My favorite spice by a huge margin. I grew a huge batch of plants from seeds I got to use in cooking. And they made their own seeds!

That personal discovery of farming was very satisfying.

People often put thin slices of potatoes at the bottom of the pot for similar results. Obviously not for crisp rice, but crisp potatoes.

I made some Indian food - turmeric potatoes with green pepper (surprisingly good despite containing literally only potatoes, green peppers, oil, turmeric, and salt), and a chickpea dish, not exactly channa masala - had a ton of onions and very little tomatoes.

Last night I made Hawaiian BBQ plate dinner:
Kalua style slow-roasted pork shoulder served over rice and steamed broccoli/napa cabbage, side of macaroni salad.

Pork was rubbed with a paste of chipotle (for the smoke), garlic, ginger, salt, and POG juice (passion, orange, guava). Wrapped tight in banana leaves, and roasted low and slow in a covered dutch oven.

Turned out amazing.

Also made this weekend: infused molasses kringles (spice cookies), bolillos (mexican-style yeasted bread rolls), and pizza dough for use later in the week.

Fenugreek is awesome, but it's no coriander. They're not bad together, though.

Chickpeas go really well with amchur (dried mango powder) and anardana (dried, ground pomegranate seeds) for added sourness and sweetness. Sometimes you'll see them in chana pindi recipes. Or pindi chana...either way, you can't add enough of either. They're fantastic.

The recipe suggested mango powder but we didn't have any. It suggested lemon juice as substitute, so I used that. Probably not as authentic but still turned out great.
